Dr. Andrea Compton was born in Chicago, Illinois but spent her first few years in Indiana. Dr. Compton attended the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign for both her undergraduate and veterinary school. She received a Bachelor of Science in Animal Sciences with a pre-vet focus and also completed her DVM there in 2012. Since graduation, Dr. Compton worked at a small animal practice South of Indianapolis before joining the emergency team at AVCC in 2015.
Outside of work, she likes to cook and attend food events. Two of her passions are scuba diving and photography, but she spends most of her time being entertained by her three German Shorthaired Pointers- Mabel, Piper, and Ollie.
