Colleen M. Brown DVM
Dr. Brown dreamed of becoming a veterinarian during her youth while growing up in Cleveland, Ohio. She has resided in the Valley of the Sun since completing her undergraduate work at Arizona State University where she was a member of the Barretts' Honors College. After receiving concurrent bachelor degrees from ASU in Biology and Italian she received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA. At Western, Dr. Brown was fortunate to participate in a new paradigm of veterinary education called problem based learning. Her special interests include integrative medicine and Rottweilers!
Professional organizations to which Dr. Brown is a member include The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the Arizona Veterinary Medical Association (AZVMA), The Veterinary Information Network (VIN), the American Association of HouseCall and Mobile Veterinarians (AAHV) and The American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (AHVMA).
Dr Brown occasionally teaches at a local college as an Adjunct Professor of Biology and works as a relief veterinarian for local veterinary clinics. She also has published several articles for Biology Digest related to topics regarding the veterinary profession.
Dr. Brown has a special interest in Integrative Veterinary Medicine and is currently pursuing certification in Veterinary Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Veterinary Medicine and Food Therapy via The Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. She is very excited to share these services with her patients.
When Dr. Brown is not treating patients her favorite past time is creating art. She is a working local mixed media artist. Her art can be found in local shops and galleries in the valley. Sometimes the healer needs healing and art truly heals! You may view her art at drskippyart.com.
She also enjoys yoga, tennis, travel and spending time with family and friends. Dr. Brown loves to speak Italian so don't forget to say Ciao and strike up a conversation in Italian if you also speak the language!
Thank you visiting, hope to meet you and your furry family soon!
