Dr. Lavigne graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. She returned home to Northwest Ohio to practice at a mixed animal practice before joining the Care Center team. She has always had a strong interest in emergency and critical care medicine, as well as pain management, geriatric care and soft tissue surgery and repair. Dr. Lavigne currently lives in Cincinnati with her three dogs, cat and her horse—a wonderful friend for over 20 years. She enjoys outdoor activities including horse-back riding, biking, hiking and playing with her dogs, and makes time for music appreciation, travel and reading.
