Hello, I’m Dr. Peterson! I hail from Trinidad and Tobago. My interest in veterinary medicine began while volunteering as a teenager with my aunt and uncle, who are both veterinarians in Florida. I graduated from the University of the West Indies with a degree in Biology and Environmental and Natural Resources Management, and then received my veterinary medical degree from Tuskegee University school of Veterinary Medicine. I have since practiced veterinary medicine in Florida and Winnipeg before settling into my final home of Toronto. I love practicing small animal medicine and I’m an avid believer in preventative care. When I’m not in the hospital, I enjoy travelling with my husband Roger and watching movies with the boss of the home, my cat Raja.
