Dr. Carrie Daly graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2009. She has had an eclectic career since then, having lived and worked in Hong Kong, Minnesota, Oregon, and now Colorado. She has experience in toxicology, emergency medicine, shelter medicine, and wildlife medicine. She loves teaching and advocating for veterinary practitioner wellness: you can find her on atdove teaching about exotics handling, as well as on Montel William’s podcast Free Thinking discussing mental health within the veterinary industry and the experience of working as an emergency veterinarian through a pandemic.
Carrie adores all animals, but is particularly fond of opinionated older felines with plenty of cattitude! Carrie has 3 human children, as well as a goofy dog named Mabel, a lovely cat named Meredith, a very spicy cat named Harriet Lilith Nicklenut (who was acquired as a stray on vacation when she conned the whole family into believing she was a gentle creature), and a leopard gecko named Sunny. Lastly, Carrie is a hobby beekeeper with 2 active hives. For these reasons, Carrie considers herself to be both a manager and a purveyor of chaos! In her free time, she enjoys outdoor time with her kiddos, reading, writing poetry, running trail marathons/ultramarathons, international travel, snowboarding, unsuccessful attempts at meditation, and above all else - a good long nap.
