Meet Dr. Emily
Dr. Emily Dae Andersen is a graduate of the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University in Massachusetts. Originally from Bethel, Connecticut where she attended Bethel Public Schools, Dr. Emily completed her undergraduate degree in Animal Science at the University of Vermont.
Dr. Emily’s family instilled in her at a young age an urge for constant education and search for knowledge. After personally benefiting from acupuncture and alternative medicine, she became passionate about studying these modalities as they applied to veterinary medicine. Dr. Emily soon finishes a course in acupuncture at the Chi Institute with plans to continue training in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Emily is also passionate about behavioral medicine and hopes to apply an integrative approach to the prevention and treatment of behavioral pathologies. Dr. Emily is an advocate of One Health, incorporating environmental sciences, veterinary medicine, human medicine, and other disciplines into conversation toward a holistic approach to world health. She has had the great fortune to apply these strategies to community and shelter medicine projects both stateside and abroad. Dr. Emily looks forward to continuing to work on projects in Latin America, specifically in Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.
Dr. Emily has now returned to Bethel where she shares a beautiful property in the woods with her six cats, rescue sugar glider, chickens, and new deaf puppy. She enjoys gardening and plants, crafts and art, and playing music. Dr. Emily is thrilled to join the kind and welcoming Valley Veterinary team and treat your four legged loved ones.
