Bridie O’Connor, DVM, is originally from Whittier, California. She attended Whittier College where she majored in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. After some time spent training horses and traveling, she attended veterinary school at the University of California, Davis. She then completed a one year small animal internship at the University of Pennsylvania where she spent time working with complex cases in a variety of specialties and pursued research investigating refractive error in dogs with retinal diseases. Dr. O’Connor also has an interest in alternative medicine and recently has become certified in veterinary acupuncture.
While Dr. O’Connor loves being a veterinarian, she has many other interests when she is not practicing. She loves hiking, running, ballet, riding horses, travel and her Irish heritage (hence the Irish nickname “Bridie”).
