Dr. Lang grew up in a small country town in Missouri and moved to Oregon as a teenager. Living on a farm and taking in all the stray animals is what sparked her interest in veterinary medicine and has been her dream career since the age of six. While obtaining her bachelor in animal science from Oregon State University, she worked in a feline only practice sparking a strong interest in feline medicine. Dr. Lang attended Oregon State University College of Veterinary Medicine and served as the president of the student chapter of the American Association of Feline Practitioners. She worked for Banfield for 3 years and then spent the last 2.5 years at a feline specific practice in Portland.
