Dr. Roland is our medical director at VCA Seaside Animal Hospital. She received her Bachelor's degree in Ecology, and Enviromental Biology from UNC Asheville in 2000. Then she went on to get her DVM from NC State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007.
Following graduation she practiced in rural western North Carolina where she was involved with animal welfare and rescue until she joined the family here at VCA Seaside in 2010. Dr. Roland completed her acupunture certification through the International Veterinary Acupunture Society in 2013. She plans to pursue advanced certification in acupunture, chiropractic, and herbal medicine as well.
In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, and four legged children. She has one adorable dog named Bean, and two cats Gus and Egg. If it is nice outside you can find Dr. Roland in her garden or at the beach.
