Dr. Gilbert is a Western New York native. She received a Bachelor of Science degree from Canisius College in the field of chemistry in 1994. Following her undergraduate degree she was awarded her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree by the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island, Canada in 1999. Dr. Gilbert has a special interest in all types of surgery and dentistry. She and her husband have volunteered their time performing spays and neuters in the Dominican Republic to reduce the stray pet population – and she will be heading to Peru with World Vets in March 2020. During her free time, Dr. Gilbert can be found outside jogging, hiking, walking, skiing, horseback riding, and ice skating with her husband. Her cat, Miss B, is more of a home body that enjoys keeping Dr. Gilbert’s lap warm when she is reading or studying for her Master’s in Public Health from UB.
