Andrea Gilbert, DVM-Hardwick Veterinary Clinic, Vermont

Andrea graduated from the University of Illinois in 1997. After graduating from veterinary school, Andrea completed a one year internship in emergency medicine at Tufts University in North Grafton, MA. She worked in suburban Boston after her internship. When the opportunity arose to move out of the urban environment, she jumped on it and has not looked back.

Andrea grew up in Concord, New Hampshire and feels very lucky to be able to live in beautiful Northern Vermont. She really enjoys the seasonality of life up here. She lives in Cabot with her husband and an ever growing number of dogs and cats. On her days off, you can find her home cooking, knitting or reading.
