Magdalena White, VT
Magda is originally from Illinois and moved out to Colorado in November 2013. She has an Associate’s in Arts, with a focus in psychology, but found her true passion in the field of veterinary medicine after her German Shepherd, Dakota, was diagnosed with nasal lymphoma. Magda began working with animals soon after Dakota’s passing.
Accompanying Magda on her adventures is her dog, Wolf, and her Persian cat, Mustache. They have been her perfect fuzzy support system, little explorers, and heart healers. She feels lucky to have such a wonderful little family.
Magda is very excited to be a part of the team at Northgate Animal Hospital and to continue to work in a field she adores.
