Dr. Brenda Godlewski
Dr. Brenda Godlewski (Dr. G) was six years old when she declared that she was going to be an animal doctor. Growing up on Long Island, New York, her first pets: Cindy, an ever-tolerant white cat, and Goldie, a Golden Retriever (!) were her main sources of inspiration. They both had an intuitiveness about them – as many animals do – knowing just when to nuzzle up and give love. They communicated so much without any words. To see them, or any animal, in pain was intolerable. Today, Dr. G still watches her furry patients communicate without words, giving her valuable clues that help her care for them.

It didn’t take long for Dr. Randall-Smith to realize that the veterinary profession would be perfect for her!
