Dr. Templeton grew up in Connecticut with a variety of animals including the family dogs, cats, and livestock including pigs, chickens, and Dexter cattle. Dr. Templeton earned her bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering at the University of Connecticut. After working as an engineer for a few years, she began her own farm business back in Connecticut. Eventually, her love for both science and animals led her to pursue an education in veterinary medicine, and she graduated from the University College Dublin Veterinary Medicine program in 2023.
Although initially interested in large animal medicine, Dr. Templeton discovered she had a passion for small animal medicine. As an intern at Columbia Pike, Dr. Templeton is excited to further develop her small animal medical skills, especially emergency medicine.
When not working, you can find Dr. Templeton playing and coaching volleyball, baking, weightlifting, and exploring nature with her Australian Shepherd, Luna.
