Dr. Hokanson grew up on a horse farm in Western New York and knew very early on that veterinary medicine would be her career. She graduated from Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, then completed a small animal medicine and surgery rotating internship at The Ohio State University. She enjoys emergency and critical care medicine and has a special interest in cardiology and cardiac emergencies. Dr. Hokanson enjoys an active lifestyle and any excuse to be outdoors. She loves hiking, cross-fit, riding her horse named E Street and spending time with her Jack Russel Terrier named Ruble.
