Dr. Benson has been part of the veterinary field since 2003; first working as a licensed veterinary technician and now, after graduating from Lincoln Memorial University in May 2018, as a veterinarian. She has a passion for leadership and obtained her Masters in Business Administration in 2008. The loss of her cat, Rock, and her dog, Sweet Pea, during veterinary school, led her to a love for the end of life care for pets and helping people cope with the loss of their beloved companion.
She is working to become certified in hospice and palliative care and plans to start an in-home euthanasia business. Dr. Benson has 3 dogs (Chomper and Littlefoot, Dachshund mix brothers, and Maverick, a Rottweiler) and a cat (Jazz, a tortie). She loves spending time with her pets, as well as her niece and nephew. Dr. Benson has been known to get a little crazy cheering on the Michigan State Spartans, especially during March Madness (Go Green!). She looks forward to her journey as a veterinarian and seeing what life has in store for her!
