Dr. Elizabeth Wolf has been a member of our professional staff since 1999. Las Vegas born, and Mid-West raised, she grew up in Missouri. She attended the University of Missouri-Columbia (Mizzou) where she graduated in 1993 with a Baccalaureate of Science in Biology, and a dual minor in Chemistry and French. She received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1997 from the University of Missouri-Columbia. When she began college it was Dr. Wolf's desire to go into research. She soon realized that meant a whole lot of time watching fruit flies breed, or the equivalent. Her journey led her to a volunteer position at Noah's Ark Animal Hospital in Columbia, Missouri where she spent long hours doing kennel work and multiple flea and tick bathes for free. There, she found her calling, and loved it. When she learned she could combine the hands-on work with medicine and surgery, she decided a career in veterinary medicine was for her. The following year she was accepted into the school of veterinary medicine and years later is still following her professional passion. Her special areas of interest include anesthesiology, pain management, dentistry and feline medicine, including feline rescue. She has the honor of holding the unofficial title of the Rainbow Cat Pimp! Dr. Wolf is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, a National Public Radio member, a member of the Ultimate Players Association, and a proud card carrying member of the Mizzou Alumni Association. In 2003 the former Elizabeth Steininger met and married Eric Wolf, and today are the proud parents of Eileen and Gabe. When not doting over her son and daughter, Dr. Wolf enjoys swimming, hiking, cycling, downhill skiing, yoga, and is a voracious reader. The Wolf Family also share their home with Millie, a rescue cat, Petunia, also a rescue cat, who survived facial reconstruction surgery after being hit by a car as a stray, and keeping the cats in line is Typhon, a mixed breed dog.
