Dr. Isaacs joined Santa Monica Pet Medical Center's veterinary staff as Medical Director in 2011. Born and raised in Santa Monica, she received her Bachelor's degree in Biology from UCLA and obtained her DVM from UC Davis in 1980. She came to us from the Veterinary Medical Center in Studio City and brings a depth of experience to our staff from years of managing her own practice. Dr. Isaacs often brings her parrot, Muku, to work with her--you may have heard him, he's very vocal! Her interests include mountain biking, traveling, cooking and eating interesting food.
