Elizabeth Peck, DVM, is an emergency veterinarian at Veterinary Medical and Surgical Group (VMSG) in Ventura.
Dr. Peck grew up in the Silicon Valley playing as many team sports as possible before attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for her undergraduate degree in Animal Science. While at University, she served as vice president of the Honors Society, captained the women’s polo team through consecutive West Coast Regional titles, and worked as a technician for a large animal veterinarian in Templeton, Ca.
After completion of her degree, Dr. Peck traveled around the world from Japan to Sri Lanka to Morocco and Europe, until settling in Grenada, West Indies. There she attended St. George’s University and earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Summa Cum Laude. During veterinary school, Dr. Peck orchestrated One Health One Medicine community health clinics in the most rural communities of the developing nation.
It was at Cornell University during her clinical year that she deeply felt the trauma both of animal and family when they presented for emergency services. From those experiences came a fundamental drive to serve her community during the most vulnerable time of the human-animal bond by becoming an emergency veterinarian. After graduation, Dr. Peck completed an intensive, rotating internship at Advanced Veterinary Specialists, Santa Barbara Ca. Following her internship, Dr. Peck accepted a position at VMSG and has enjoyed every day of her career since.
On her days off you can find Dr. Peck adventuring with her Dalmatian side kick, June Carter, working out on the beach, hiking, or at home studying veterinary acupuncture and hanging with her island cat, Freda Kahlo.
