Dr. Engel knew she was going to become a veterinarian since she was a little girl. She would play veterinary office with her sister and their friends, performing exams on their stuffed animals and instructing them how to take care of their pets. She grew up in Oakland County and looked forward to settling down again in the Metro Detroit area after graduating from veterinary school. Dr. Engel attended Michigan State University for her undergraduate studies as well as for veterinary medical school; her heart bleeds Spartan green. When not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family, including the furry members. They love to explore parks and hiking trails together. In her downtime, she loves cooking, listening to music, watching movies, and is an avid reader.
