Dr. Carroll graduated Cum Laude from the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 1998. She's been at Animal Medical Center of Plano since May of 2000. Although she enjoys general practice as a whole, her true clinical passion is internal medicine. She prefers to leave the big surgeries to those who enjoy that sort of stuff. She works hard to stay on the cutting edge of veterinary medicine through hours of continuing education and internet research. To help maintain this goal, she joined the Texas Academy of Veterinary Practice which upholds strict standards for continuing education, above and beyond that mandated by the state board.
Dr. Carroll currently works Tuesday through Thursday and two Saturdays a month.
Dr. Carroll lives in Allen with her husband Dan, very cute sons Aidan and Perry and her dogs Katelin and Scully. Katelin is probably a miniature pinscher (in the breed’s natural form with tail and ears intact); she was obtained from an old client of Dr. C’s who bought her at a garage sale for $30. Scully is (according to the Wisdom Panel DNA Test done on her) a Lab, Cocker Spaniel, Australian Shepherd and Mastiff Mix. We are all a little perplexed by these results as she weighs around 25 pounds. Both dogs are getting older now. Scully has a little “hitch in her getalong”, but is the top food thief in Collin County. On her best week she stole two loaves of bread, a box of Oreos, and a can of Pringles. The kids are no help in this matter. Scully also holds the award for the “Family Ratter”, as she’s singlehandedly killed about 6 rats in the back yard. Katelin, (don’t tell Scully this) is mom’s favorite. She’s the quintessential lap dog and sweetheart. She has, however developed the habit of climbing onto the kitchen table to steal leftovers when nobody is looking. She is also an accomplice to Scully’s murderous ways, as she finds the rats for Scully to kill.
In her free time, Dr. Carroll enjoys reading, going to the movies, gardening, cooking (but not baking as that requires precision, accuracy and concentration, which is difficult to achieve in her home environment, her husband, the engineer does the baking) and is a budding mosaic artist and blogger ( drcarrollplanovets.wordpress.com).
