Dr. Parks has returned to Smith Veterinary in a new role. Some of you may remember her from mid to late 2000’s when she was with us as our office manager and receptionist. She received her bachelor’s degree in animal production from the University of Minnesota in 2002. In 2013, she graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine and spent the first 8 years of her veterinary career as an equine practitioner focusing on dentistry. She reunited with Smith Vet in 2021.

When not at the hospital, Dr. Parks enjoys home renovation, gardening and side-by-side trail riding. She has a small herd of animals including dogs, cats, horses and ferrets.
