Dr. Noelle Schoettle graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2017. She loves the diversity veterinary medicine offers but is especially passionate about small animal emergency medicine. She has special interest in toxicology, polytrauma, and cardiac emergencies. She is also passionate about client education and community outreach and is involved in dog therapy programs at children’s hospitals in the Philadelphia area.
After graduating from veterinary school, Dr. Schoettle completed a 1-year rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Friendship Hospital for Animals, a large specialty practice in Washington, DC. She obtained a BA in biology with a minor in art history from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, in 2013.
Dr. Schoettle grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. She dreamed of becoming a veterinarian from a young age, and in elementary school she began shadowing at a large general practice and emergency hospital in the Bay Area where her own dogs were patients. She went on to work in a variety of veterinary settings, including small animal clinics, shelters, and an equine surgery center, and she spent a summer in Kenya interning with Kenya Wildlife Services.
Dr. Schoettle enjoys running marathons, baking, playing guitar and ukelele, and spending time with her family, significant other, and her cuddly orange kitty named Allagash.
