Passionate about working with many species of animals, Dr. Spetko has spent time working to rehabilitate Asian elephants, macaques and gibbons in Thailand. She has also enjoyed working with seals and sea lions as a marine mammal intern at a local aquarium. Her true passion, however, lies in small animal medicine.

In her spare time, Dr. Spetko enjoys horseback riding, traveling, and spending time with her family. She has a chocolate lab, Chubbs, and Zoey, a cat rescued from St. Kitts.
