Dr. Lord grew up in Texas and Spain and is fluent in Spanish. Before vet school, she worked as an assistant at a busy, equine referral and surgery hospital. She received her Bachelor’s Degree from Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX and completed her Veterinary Degree at Ross University in 2017. She spent her first three years after graduating vet school working in a busy, and fast paced mixed animal clinic in Belton.

In her spare time, Dr. Lord loves to spend time with her horse, three dogs (a scruffy princess, a coconut retriever and a golden doodle with 3 and 3/4 legs), two cats (Archibald and Sebastian)! When Dr Lord is not at work, she is most likely at the barn riding her Azteca mare in Dressage, cow events and Working Equitation.
