A Midwestern native from Greendale, Wisconsin, Dr. Greene's love for animals started at a young age. Participating in both waterfowl sports with his family dogs, and working with military dogs in his career as a United States Army Ranger, he was destined to find his calling as a veterinarian.
Upon high school graduation, Dr. Greene felt the call to be of service to his country and served in five deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. As a member of the US Army's elite special operations unit, the US Army Rangers, Dr. Greene became certified as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT); his work in the field as an EMT is where he found his love for medicine.
Upon finishing his military service, Dr. Greene attended the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee for his undergraduate studies and then attended the University of Wisconsin Madison's School of Veterinary Medicine. Throughout college, he participated in many shadow and externship opportunities with veterinary hospitals in Milwaukee and Jefferson Counties as well as emergency hospitals in the Madison area – including the VCA Veterinary Emergency Service & Veterinary Specialty Center in Middleton.
Dr. Greene graduated in May of 2019 with his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree and began practicing emergency medicine at a large emergency and specialty veterinary hospital in the Milwaukee area. Dr. Greene's passion about educating clients on how to keep their pets healthy in all facets of their lives, and has special interests in ultrasound and surgery, urged him to want to expand his scope of experience from emergency medicine to include general practice, wellness and preventative medicine. Luck, or destiny would have it, he came back to the VCA family and we are very excited he's joined our VCA Milwaukee Emergency Center for Animals team!
Dr. Greene's interests outside of work include basketball, woodworking, enjoying the great outdoors and his love of coffee. In addition to his wife and growing family, there's also a very spoiled cat named Murty that gets all the attention he can handle. If you ask him, he'd probably say it's not near enough for his liking.
