Dr. Schrank grew up in a small town in upstate New York, where she was surrounded by animals ranging from pigs, sheep and horses, to gerbils, birds, and her beloved English Springer Spaniel dogs. She always enjoyed science classes and combined with her love for animals, becoming a veterinarian was a very easy decision.
Dr. Schrank received her undergraduate degree in Zoology from the State University of New York at Oswego. She balanced her time studying all things biology with a love for music, and played the flute in various groups during her time here.
Dr. Schrank then went on to receive her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Cornell University. She has always wanted to become a general practitioner for small animals since it allows her to work closely with all members of her community, and provide care for animals in all phases of life, from puppy and kitten visits to geriatric care. She looks forward to building long-term relationships with community members and their animal companions, and providing the highest quality medical care as a part of the Burnt Hills team.
In her free time, Dr. Schrank enjoys knitting, baking, and traveling. She lives with her husband, cockatiel Loo, and sourdough starter (named sour-Joe).
