Dr. Peltier grew up on Long Island in a household full of pets including, boa constrictors, tarantulas, tropical fish, raccoons and, of course, dogs and cats. She was especially close to her pony mare, “Rocket”, and went on to ride race horses professionally at Belmont Race Track before setting her sights on a career in veterinary medicine.
Dr. Peltier completed her undergraduate degree in Animal Science at Cornell University. She then went on to earn her Master of Science (Equine Nutrition and Reproductive Physiology) and Doctor of Veterinary medicine degrees at the University of Florida. Dr. Peltier then completed an internship in rural animal medicine at the University of Florida. Her first years as a practicing veterinarian were in mixed animal and later small animal practice in rural Utah.
After several years in Utah, Dr. Peltier moved with her family to Howell, NJ in 2005. She has practiced at Jackson Veterinary Clinic since that time. When not practicing at the office, Dr. Peltier, enjoys spending time with her special needs son, Ethan (non-verbal autistic), daughter Eponine and husband of 19 years, Morgan. Pet family members include Lola, a rescue English Bulldog and Blaze, a recently adopted kitty with Feline Aids.
Dr. Peltier is very enthusiastic about the recent ownership of Jackson Veterinary Clinic and is looking forward to providing thorough, experienced and compassionate care to your furry family members.
