Dr. Gillette is a California native, and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her mother was originally from northern Minnesota so she spent many summers just an hour east of Fargo. Always having a passion for animals, she often played veterinarian as a child. She performed her first stuffed animal surgery at the age of 2, when she learned to thread a needle. She achieved her childhood dream after she graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and completed her clinical training at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Gillette has a passion for Animal Behavior/Training and a love for cats. Her four pets include a lovely mixed breed dog named Flora, a sweet orange tabby kitty named Dijon, a sassy calico kitty named Dorothy Kate and an overly hyper German Shorthaired Pointer/Irish Setter Mix named Barinya.
