Caroline Robson, DVM
Dr. Robson grew up in Galveston, Texas. She left Texas after high school, and attended the University of Virginia, where she graduated with a B.A. in History. She then moved out to San Francisco, and initially pursued a career in finance. Quickly realizing that she had made a wrong turn professionally, she left the financial services industry to pursue her dream of becoming a veterinarian.
In 2009, Dr. Robson graduated Phi Zeta from the University of California, Davis, and moved to the Boston area to pursue an one-year internship in Small Animal Internal Medicine, Surgery, Emergency and Critical Care. After finishing the internship, she joined a busy small animal practice in the Boston area, where she practiced for a little over 2 years. Her family then made their way back west to the San Francisco Bay Area, where they settled for the next 3 years. Over the years, Dr. Robson has cultivated a special interest in internal medicine, shelter medicine, abdominal ultrasound, and preventative medicine.
When her husband finished his medical training, the Robsons decided to leave California and embark on a new adventure in Utah. Dr. Robson lives in Park City with her husband, Jake, her sons, Graham and Wesley, and two cats. When not at work, she can be found chasing her energetic sons around town and exploring her new home city and state.
