Dr. Passmore

Dr. Liz Passmore grew up in Maryland and graduated from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 2014. She began work as a veterinarian at a small animal hospital in her hometown where she previously worked in the kennel and as a technician. In early 2020 she moved to North Carolina with her husband, two young children, cat, and two dogs. In the past she enjoyed team sports and hiking with her dogs, Laney and Reagan. Two small children and an aging dog make hiking more difficult but the family loves the beach and exploring the local parks. She also enjoys horseback riding when she gets the chance.
