Dr. Schlachter moved to Arizona at the ripe old age of 2, went to high school in Scottsdale, and did her undergrad at ASU (go Sundevils!). After finishing undergrad she moved to Colorado to attend vet school at Colorado State. Although she loved Colorado, she did not love the cold and snow. So back to Arizona she went after graduation. Dr. Schlachter has worked in both private practice and shelter medicine during her career. She is also working part-time for a veterinary assisting program for high school students in Phoenix. Her favorite part of veterinary medicine is most anything feline related. When not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband and son, traveling, hiking, crafting and reading.
