Repac, Jennifer, DVM, CVA

Resident in Integrative & Rehabilitative Medicine

A California native, Dr. Jennifer Repac received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of California Berkeley in Molecular Environmental Biology. She continued her studies at the University of California Davis and received a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. Dr. Repac spent her first 4 years in general practice in New York City. She then spent 2 years working as a veterinarian and teacher for a small animal practice in Beijing and now speaks Mandarin. Dr. Repac has been practicing veterinary acupuncture since 2011 and has traveled twice to Guangzhou, China to teach acupuncture with the Chi Institute. It was during one of these meetings with her former colleagues, that she became interested in animal rehabilitation and how it complements Chinese medicine. Inspired by the possibilities and room for creativity in this newly emerging specialty, she plans to pursue a residency in Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation. Having worked many per diem hours for Animal Care Centers of NYC and providing care to stray animals in China, she also holds a special place in her heart for shelter animals.
