Ursula has been with Southpointe since September 2014. She previously obtained a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Michigan in 2009 but soon realized animal medicine was her passion. She later graduated from Wayne County Community College with a degree in Veterinary Technology in 2013.

In her spare time Ursula enjoys going camping, fishing, anything outdoors and going to country music concerts and festivals. She also loves our Detroit sports teams and spending time with her two cats and red eared slider turtle.

“I’ve always followed my heart in every aspect of my life. Caring for animals is truly my passion. Being physically able to care for every animal that comes through our door is truly a gift.  We are their voice. I take a lot of pride in my profession and will continue to provide excellent customer service to our clients and treat their pets as if they were my own.”
