DVM, Emergency & Critical Care
Dr. Nicole Underhill spent her younger years growing up in the Pacific Northwest before moving to Mesa, Arizona in 2002. She was introduced to the Iditarod Dog Sled Race in elementary school and a passion for animal care and adventure was sparked. In 2011, Dr. Underhill volunteered at the race headquarters in Anchorage, Alaska as a dog handler for Iditarod 39. After meeting veterinarians from across the world, she decided to transfer her degree in computer science at Arizona State University to the University of Arizona for a degree in Animal Science.
In 2014, Dr. Underhill started as part of the inaugural class at Midwestern University College of Veterinary Medicine (Glendale, Arizona), where she graduated from in 2018. Her interests include beef cattle, goats, pigs, and small animal emergency and critical care.
In her spare time, Dr. Underhill likes spending time outdoors with her husband and 2 dogs, Koa (cattle dog mix) and Kopper (Golden Retriever).
