Debra Draper, DVM
Dr. Debra Draper was born in Bloomington, Indiana and spent time growing up in Colorado and Arizona. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree at Arizona State University, then moved to Florida to pursue a Master’s Degree in Marine Environmental Science. She went on to earn her DVM from the University of Florida in 2004 (Go Gators!).
Dr. Draper has been privileged to work at some exceptional small animal practices in Orlando, Tampa, Atlanta and Philadelphia where she had many opportunities to advance her training and skills in treating a wide variety of cases. During that time, she also met many loving and dedicated pet parents and grew to appreciate the importance of the role pets play in the lives of their families.
She is excited to be a part of the healthcare team at Carroll Gardens Vet Group to continue pursuing her passion for pet wellness; especially her professional interests including soft tissue and oral surgery, geriatric care and feline medicine.
Dr. Draper resides in Brooklyn along with her husband, who is an aquatic veterinarian at the New York Aquarium, and their “children”- a goofy Golden Retriever and a sweet old lab. In her free time, she enjoys running, cooking, reading, collecting vintage vinyl and shoes (guilty pleasure!) and exploring the city!
