Dr. Plitt has been a member of the Huffard Animal Hospital family since 2001. As a college student at UMD, she began with us as a receptionist, then shifted to the position of veterinary assistant, and eventually became a registered veterinary technician (RVT). Following her acceptance to the Virginia Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, she completed her DVM in 2010.
As a veterinarian, she was drawn back to our Huffard family by what she considers our “unique ability to provide quality medical care in a multi-doctor advanced general practice, while still maintaining that ‘family doctor’ vibe.” Since her reunion with our hospital, Dr. Plitt has developed professional interests in the areas of surgery and dentistry and also thoroughly enjoys engaging our medical support staff in additional learning and hands-on experience.
A self-proclaimed nerd, she regularly participates in continuing education programs herself to keep her approach to medicine strong and current. Even on the toughest of days, she maintains that the veterinary world is where she is meant to be! In her free time, though, she enjoys balancing her life by spending time with family and friends, traveling, SCUBA diving, and dancing (ballet and competitive ballroom).
Although Dr. Plitt has counted fish, frogs, cats, birds, ferrets, and rabbits among her critters in the past, her current family members include an incredible son and a gentle but fun-loving “box-of-chocolates” pupper she calls Pita. She can’t wait to meet your family and all your fur babies, too!
