DVM, DABVP (Canine & Feline Practice) / Hospital Director, Chandler
Dr. Justine Mumaw is a born and raised Arizonan! She graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology and earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University. Before returning to Arizona, she spent a year pursuing a small animal rotating internship at a busy specialty practice in the heart of Los Angeles. After spending the next 11 years in clinical practice in Arizona, she completed an extensive credentialing process and passed a certifying examination to become a Diplomate of the American Board for Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP), Board Certified in Canine and Feline Practice.
Dr. Mumaw joined the Primary Care team at 1st Pet Chandler in 2014 and shortly after became the Chandler Hospital Director. She enjoys the added benefit of supporting her 1st Pet team while continuing to care for the wonderful patients and clients of 1st Pet Chandler. Although she loves all aspects of veterinary medicine, her special interests include feline medicine, internal medicine, clinicopathology, and diagnostic imaging.
In her free time she enjoys spending time with her computer savvy husband and two beautiful sons, as well as traveling, trying new restaurants, and playing board games. She currently has 5 crazy cats and a boa constrictor named Tenzin.
“I fell in love with the idea of being a veterinarian early in life. My mother, the late Dr. Bonnie Faust, was a wonderful veterinarian and served the Phoenix community with all her heart for many years before her passing in 1999. Her love for animals and the profession was gifted upon me and I strive to practice the highest standard of care with a love and compassion for my patients, their owners, and the bond shared between them.”
