Dr. Fraser grew up in the small town of Winterport, Maine. She attended Elon College in North Carolina for her undergraduate studies in Biology. It wasn’t until her third year of college that she realized veterinary medicine was a much better fit for her than human medicine. In preparation for vet school, Dr. Fraser spent a year in Maine working in a mixed animal practice and then 2 years at UNC Chapel Hill working in neuroscience research. It was here that she met her husband, Randal.
