Dr. Andrea Sobon

I am a 2001 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-School of Veterinary Medicine and did my undergraduate work at both UW-Milwaukee and UW-Waukesha. Prior to veterinary school, I worked in wildlife rehabilitation. During my senior year at veterinary school I completed a one month externship at the Milwaukee County Zoo. My professors awarded me the Eberhard Rosin General Surgery award prior to graduation.

These experiences helped develop my continued interest in exotic medicine and soft tissue surgery. I am a member of the major local and national veterinary associations, including exotic species. I have an eight pound leopard tortoise, a bearded dragon lizard, and four cats.

When I am away from work I love to spend time with my husband, Erik, and my two children, Kristian and Anna. We like to hike, play soccer and tennis. Additionally, I love cooking and baking and often bring in my creations to share with my coworkers. My next big trip will be a first as a family and we would love to visit Hawaii. I have also always wanted to go to Australia to see the many unique animals that live there.

I love working at New Berlin Animal Hospital for many reasons, particularly because of the animals I am able to help. Additionally, we are a family here and it is really nice to want to go to work everyday. I began my employment at New Berlin Animal Hospital in 2005 and plan to stay until I retire.
