Zimra Gordon graduated with a BA in biology from Wellesley College in 1992. She received her DVM from Tufts University in 1996. After practicing small animal medicine for several years, she became increasingly interested in the natural history and epidemiology of infectious and chronic disease, and went on to receive advanced training at the Yale School of Epidemiology and Public Health. She was awarded a Masters of Public Health (MPH) from Yale in 2002. She continues to work with the faculty at Yale studying the ‘One Health’ concept, which explores the intersections between animal and human health.

Dr. Gordon enjoys working with pets and their families to maintain pet health through all life stages. When not practicing veterinary medicine, she and her family, both two and four legged, can be found wandering through the forests and wetlands of New England.
