Dr. Marissa Woodall grew up in the Chicago area and obtained her B.S. in Animal Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
She graduated from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine with honors and completed a rotating internship at a specialty and emergency hospital. There, she found a passion for ultrasonography and emergency medicine, but decided to pursue general practice as well because it allows her to develop long-term relationships with her clients and patients.
She is passionate about working and volunteering in animal shelters, fostering, and is the Oakland Project Manager for International Veterinary Outreach, a 501(c)3 animal welfare non-profit organization. She lives with her husband Tim, and her cats Stanley and Baxter.
