Dr. Kim Brothwell grew up in Lee, New Hampshire and had a love for animals at a young age. She got her first dog Lady, a Golden Retriever, for her 5th birthday. When her parents got her riding lessons, they thought it was just a childhood phase. But, that turned into many years of showing both locally and regionally on quarter horse and paint circuits. Kim earned her undergraduate degree in Animal Science at the University of New Hampshire . While there, she juggled working as a barn manager for Boulder Brook Stables, an assistant at Statham-Newfield’s Veterinary Hospital, and in the histology lab at the New Hampshire Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory. Kim was accepted into veterinary school at the University of Missouri. In veterinary school Kim took leadership roles in the Veterinary Business Management Association and the student chapter of the American Animal Hospital Association. She was also a leader in forming a new program at the school that allows students to spend time in South Africa learning and working with veterinarians on animal reserves. Throughout veterinary school, Kim did several externships at equine hospitals, including hospitals in Kentucky, Texas, New Hampshire, and Maine. Following veterinary school, Kim completed an internship at New England Equine Medical and Surgical Center where she expanded her equine skills in the areas of lameness, surgery, ophthalmology and medicine. Kim married Dan, her high school boyfriend, in 2012 after being together for 10 years. After joining the DVC family in the summer of 2013, Kim and her husband moved to Deerfield with their French Bulldog , Gus. In her spare time, Kim enjoys riding, yoga, mountain biking and hiking with Gus. (Source)
