Monica Capella, Staff Veterinarian

Dr. Capella is a recent Phi Zeta graduate of the Virginia Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine and joined the VCA Calvert Veterinary team this June. A Maryland native, she started volunteering with animals through Last Chance Animal Rescue, Maryland Therapeutic riding, and other organizations at the age of 13. She majored in Animal Sciences at the University of Maryland College Park and during her time as an undergraduate, spent several weeks studying cheetah, lion, and leopard behavior in South Africa, working as a teaching assistant, and serving in the veterinary community as a veterinary technician in College Park, MD. She graduated with honors as a Maryland Terp and Life Sciences Scholar, looking forward to continuing her journey as a VT Hokie.

During veterinary school, Dr. Capella continued her teaching assistant position, held executive positions in Companion Animal Club and her class board, and became a student ambassador serving Blacksburg and the local community. Over four years, she also fostered over 30 animals which have now all found happy forever homes including a blue Pitbull named Nova who spends her time snoozing away on Dr. Capella’s couch with her feline sisters Luna and Estrellita!

Dr. Capella has a special interest in small animal internal medicine and is excited to join the VCA Calvert Veterinary team to continue learning and serving as an active member of the veterinary community on local, national, and international levels. Although her time in Virginia has been filled with wonderful adventures, she is excited to return home to crab feasts, strolling around downtown Baltimore, joining local soccer teams, and spending the occasional lazy day relaxing at the National Arboretum.
