Dr. Sophie Petersen is board certified in veterinary neurology. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Reed College and then acquired a PhD in molecular neuroscience at the University of California at Berkeley.

She completed a one-year rotating internship in small animal medicine at North Carolina State University in Raleigh before returning to UC Davis for a three year residency program in neurology/neurosurgery. Following completion of the residency she worked at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin as an Assistant Clinical Professor until 2010. She then returned to Portland and worked in a private practice as a neurologist for four years before joining VCA Northwest Veterinary Specialists.
