Dr. Armstrong grew up in Perkiomenville and attended Delaware Valley College in Doylestown, Pennsylvania for her undergraduate degree in Zoo Science, working at the local animal shelter at the same time. She went to the University of Missouri to receive her veterinary degree and graduated in 2011. She has been working here at Ark since then.
Exotic animal care is one of Dr. Armstrong’s favorite aspects of her job. She continues to be inspired by every pet she cares for—their positivity and zeal for life is infectious!
Dr. Armstrong and her husband have a toddler-aged son, Gabriel, who is obsessed with dinosaurs and beagles, and a newborn baby girl named Edyn. The family shares their home with Becky, a miniature poodle, Lady Lumps, a cat that Dr. Armstrong found during veterinary school, and another rescued feline named Caterpillar.
In her spare time, Dr. Armstrong enjoys spending time with her children, arts and crafts, visiting thrift stores, and Zumba class.
