Dr. Palmer only works weekends here at BVH. She graduated from University of Pennsylvania in 1991 and began working here shortly after. She currently has three dogs and two cats. The first is Austen, a very sweet 10-year-old Pembroke Corgi. He was initially intended, by the breeder, to be a show dog. He didnt quite make it in the show ring and was given to Dr. Palmer when he was a little over a year. Her other dog is Annie, a sassy little Cardigan Corgi who has acted as a substitute mother to Dr. Palmers newest dog, Millie. Millie is a sweet yellow Labrador Retriever who was given to Dr. Palmer because of her overbite. Mr. Noodles and Curley are her kitties. They are 10-month-old brothers she adopted from Small Miracles Cat Rescue in Ellicott City. Along with this already full house, Dr. Palmer has three sons. Her two oldest sons are currently attending college, and the youngest is in high school. When she is not working, Dr. Palmer enjoys staying active by skiing, jogging, hiking, and doing aerobics.
