Dr. McCall grew up in rural northern New York just outside of Adirondack Park. From an early age she was surrounded by dogs, cats, rabbits, horses (an English rider) and neighboring dairy farms. She started as a volunteer at the local animal shelter and attended undergraduate school at SUNY Potsdam (Biology) and SUNY Canton (Veterinary Technology) where she earned her veterinary technician license. Later, she attended Tufts Cumming’s Veterinary school where she was heavily involved with community outreach programs and shelter medicine. During that time
she owned a Chihuahua, Blossom, who attended three colleges and earned her doctorate in snuggles.
Now, she lives in Medford with her beagle, Meadow, a rescued Envigo laboratory breeding beagle. Meadow is currently researching food puzzles and how to talk with buttons. While not hiking the Fells, Dr. McCall can be found attending electronic music festivals, listening to true crime podcasts, star gazing with her telescope, biking, writing fan fiction, drawing, acrylic pouring, bedazzling, organizing her sock collection, and trying to befriend the rabbit under her porch. She is a self-proclaimed seltzer and Boba tea addict.
