Dr. Forrest graduated from the University of Edinburgh with honors in neuroscience and went on to earn her veterinary degree, also from Edinburgh. She practiced in London, Scotland and Nebraska before settling in Arizona with her husband. Dr. Forrest has been with Banfield since 2012, most recently in a medical director role, overseeing the hospitals in Phoenix and Albuquerque. She greatly missed working directly with pets and we are fortunate to have her return to clinical practice as Chief of Staff at our 7th Avenue hospital. Dr. Forrest is a member of the Arizona Academy of Veterinary Practice and is involved with the AVMA, volunteering with their Reaching UP projects in NM. She was awarded the 'Banfield Gives Back' award for her volunteer work. Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Forrest loves running in the mountains of AZ and CO, and spending time with her husband and young son.
