Dr. Elizabeth (Liz) Ritchie joined VCA Woodland Animal Hospital in 2022. She received her Bachelor’s in Biology from Grand Valley State University and her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Michigan State University. Dr. Ritchie completed a small animal rotating internship and is very interested in behavior medicine and radiology. When asked what she enjoys most about being a veterinarian, Dr. Ritchie said, "I like working alongside owners to identify problem behaviors that stem from anxiety. My hope is to restore and promote the human-animal bond by giving owners practical tools."
Her pet family includes 2 dogs, Cocoa (Greyhound) and Loki (Pit mix); 1 cat, Taz; 1 ball python, Mystique; and 2 Emerald Tree Skinks, Yoshi and Treeco. In her free time, Dr. Ritchie enjoys traveling, hiking and reading.
