About

Dr. Kreisler joined Midwestern University College of Veterinary Medicine in August 2015 to help build a shelter medicine curriculum. In November of 2015 she launched the extracurricular mobile clinic program that provides sterilization, wellness and minor medical services to shelters and reservations in Arizona. Additional service to the community has involved shelter data analytics and shelter animal disease outbreak investigation, including distemper, Streptococcus zooepidemicus and pneumovirus.

She is faculty advisor to the Shelter Medicine and Veterinary Business Management Association clubs, as well as the veterinary contingent of the interdisciplinary HOME program. She is course organizer for the Shelter Medicine and Practice Management 3rd year electives. Clinical interests include shelter medicine, field medicine, feline medicine and surgery.
