Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine

Marissa Ruppel grew up in New York and received her veterinary degree from North Carolina State University in 2015. She followed graduation with a one-year internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the University of Minnesota. In 2019, she completed a three-year residency in medical oncology at UC Davis, and she has been practicing as a board-certified oncologist in the Bay Area ever since.
