Dr. Pizzo grew up in Newport Beach, California and attended UCSB for her undergraduate studies. She then went on to attend the University of Minnesota for veterinary school, graduating in 1999. After graduation, Dr. Pizzo practiced for three years in Colorado before moving to Dana Point and has been with us ever since (16 years!). She lives in Carlsbad with her husband, 4 beautiful children, 3 chickens, 2 dogs, 2 geckos and a rabbit. Needless to say, she is busy in her spare time running around for her little farm.
