Dr. Nichola Ray graduated from Colorado State University in 2010. She grew up in Chandler, Arizona and can't imagine living anywhere else, even though that makes her husband very sad. She has three children, all boys, and one dog (A GIRL! YES!). There will never be a boy animal in the house, as she is trying to even her odds. Interests are varied and nonspecific, anything that creates increased knowledge is important. She joined Banfield in 2010 after graduation, left for a short period of time to learn other aspects of veterinary medicine and to help a child through a difficult time, and now has returned to Banfield, hopefully for a long time.
