Dr. Erin Timonere was raised in Cleveland, Ohio, and grew up as an avid Buckeye fan. She earned her undergraduate degree in Animal Sciences in 2009 and her DVM in 2013 from The Ohio State University. She spent her first years out of veterinary school at a small animal general practice in Reno, Nevada where she developed interests in internal medicine, surgery and working to enrich the relationships that humans have with their animal companions. She joined Lincolnshire Animal Hospital in 2017 when she moved to Chicago with her husband and yellow lab, Lilli. Dr. Timonere enjoys spending spare time running, reading, and looking for her next SCUBA diving hot spot.
