Dr. Marissa Weaver grew up in Elma, NY, and she knew that she wanted to work with animals from a very young age. She attended Alfred State College, where she earned degrees in Veterinary Technology and Tech Management. From there, she moved on to Cornell University to become a doctor of veterinary medicine in 2019. Coming back to Buffalo to be close to family, she discovered the wonderful team at City Creatures and has been proud to be a part of it ever since. She lives with her fiancé, Joe, their two bunnies, Aboo and Zelda, and their dog, Dory. In her free time she enjoys any outdoor activity, including hiking, jogging, cross country skiing, ultimate frisbee, and bicycling. She is also an avid bookworm, and loves to read anything containing mystery and adventure. Dr. Weaver's special interests include exotic pet medicine, surgery and dentistry.
