Katie McMurray, DVM

Dr. McMurray returned home to Poland to join our team in February 2016. She is a Mooney High School graduate and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Zoology from Kent State University. After 2 ½ years of veterinary school in St. Kitts (yes, the tropical island!), Dr. McMurray came back to the states with her rescued soulmate pup, Hope, and completed a year of clinical education at Purdue University. She earned her doctoral degree from Ross University in 2012.

Since becoming a veterinarian, Dr. McMurray worked in a small animal practice in Berea and developed special interests in client education, preventive care, internal medicine, and soft tissue surgery.  She is a member of multiple state and national veterinary organizations, including the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association.

When she has free time, Dr. McMurray loves to travel and enjoy the outdoors, especially when it’s warm! She also loves spending time with her friends and family; her fiancé, Dan; their dogs, Widget and Duke; and their cat, Adam.

We look forward to working with Dr. McMurray and know she will be a great resource to you and your furry loved ones!

 

 

Tiffany Preston, DVM

My childhood dream was to become a veterinarian.  My father is a veterinarian, and my best childhood memories were going to work with my dad.  I spent countless hours out on the road and in the office watching my dad take care of large and small animals.  I vividly remember putting my sleeping bag in one of the cages pretending to be a dog!  So I guess you could say veterinary medicine is in my genes!  I never considered another career; in fact, my high school career speech was about becoming a veterinarian. 

I did my undergraduate education at Westminster College and then headed to The Ohio State University for veterinary school.  After graduating in 2010, I started working at Poland Veterinary Centre.  Deciding to work at PVC was an easy decision.  I did a required two-week externship at PVC before graduation and fell in love with the staff, clients, and their furry friends! 

I am married to a loving and supportive husband, Bobby, who most of you know from TV commercials!  We have three kids - Paige, Parker, and Blakely - who keep us on our toes.  Our fur kid is a large mixed breed dog named Cooper!   We love traveling and spending time outdoors, whether it’s skiing in the winter or water skiing in the summer!  We also serve at our local church as mentors for senior high students. 

I truly love every aspect of veterinary medicine, but I have a particular interest in dermatology, oncology, and internal medicine. My greatest joy is educating our clients on their pets’ health and improving the special bond we all share with our pets. I am also excited to further my education in abdominal ultrasound, which will allow us to better care for our patients.

During her residency, Dr. Wolfe investigated novel pain management strategies for surgical patients and earned her Masters of Science Degree for her work in this area.  Dr. Wolfe’s research has been honored with a prestigious award for its contribution to the understanding of pain and its management in animals.  Dr. Wolfe is the author of several veterinary articles and research studies on topics such as pain management and total ear canal ablation.  She has also presented her research at the national level and has provided continuing education lectures to both veterinarians and veterinary technicians. 

Though trained in all areas of soft tissue, orthopedic and neurosurgery, Dr. Wolfe has special interest in the areas of wound management and reconstructive surgery, surgical oncology, developmental and inflammatory orthopedic diseases, pain management, and critical care. Outside of PVC, Dr. Wolfe is a consultant in the areas of soft tissue and orthopedic surgery for the Veterinary Information Network (VIN), provides peer reviews for scientific studies in the American Journal of Veterinary Research, and is a section editor in soft tissue surgery for Advances in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery.  Most recently, Dr. Wolfe has become an Adjunct Associate Professor for online programs in Veterinary Biomedical Technology at the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine where she will be teaching graduate level courses on pain assessment and management.
