received her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee. Although she grew up in a Chicago suburb and never owned a horse, this did not stop her from devoting her veterinary practice entirely to horses. Dr. Tucker added her Certification for Animal Chiropractic (CAC) in 1998, and her Acupuncture certification in 2000. She started her own private practice specializing exclusively in equine acupuncture and chiropractic work in 2000.
“How things work” has always been a question that Dr. Tucker has tried to answer. Prior to receiving her veterinary degree, she received her Bachelor’s degree in Bioengineering. This unique combination of veterinarian and engineer has enabled her to create a special approach for helping owners help their horses. This approach combines her medical knowledge of equine health with her engineering background of simple, step-by-step problem solving.
Dr. Tucker currently resides with her two sons in Redding, California. Find out more about Dr Tucker's work at her website: http://wheredoesmyhorsehurt.com/
