Dr. Yavaraski grew up in Ann Arbor and has always wanted to be a veterinarian. During high school she trained and raised a service dog, which observing the human-animal bond really reinforced her passion for veterinary medicine. She attended Michigan State Veterinary school and graduated in 2014. She is passionate about dentistry, preventative care and end of life care. She owns 2 rescue dogs and a cat (Walter, Addy and Leroy). In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, orange theory and visiting her cabin on Higgins Lake.
