Meet our Alumni Speaker Dr. Justine Lee, D.V.M, DACVECC, DABT

Dr. Justine Lee is a board-certified veterinary specialist in both emergency critical care and toxicology.  Dr. Lee received her D.V.M from Cornell University in 1997 then completed an internship at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital. In addition, she has also completed an emergency fellowship and residency at the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Lee is the founder and CEO of VETgirl, an online veterinary continuing education platform.  She also works as a criticalist at Animal Emergency Referral Center of Minnesota and as a consultant for several veterinary companies. Previously, she was on faculty at the University of Minnesota and Associate Director for an animal poison control center.

Dr. Lee is the author of two humorous pet reference books entitled “It’s a Dog’s Life….but it’s Your Carpet” and “It’s a Cat’s World…You Just Live in It”.  She has also been published in numerous veterinary journals and textbooks. 

Dr. Lee lectures throughout the world on emergency, critical care, and toxicology and has been honored with the North American Veterinary Conference Small Animal Speaker of the Year.  It is no wonder that the class of 2020 chose her to give this address.
