Sharon Marx
Medical Director

BS in Animal Science and DVM from Cornell University in 1991. Finished IVAS acupuncture certification course.

Dr. Marx enjoys spending time with her husband Jim who is also a vet at Univ. of Penn, her 2 sons, Ben and Dan, and 2 dogs Bailey and Grid.

"Veterinary medicine has always been a passion of mine even from the time I was very young. Being with small mammals brings me incredible joy. Alternative medicine was the icing on the cake after having a Golden Retriever, Miami, live an extra year with the help of acupuncture. I am honored and grateful to be an integral member of the family at VCA Animal Healing Center to have the opportunity to work with exceptional staff, clients, and pets every day!"
