DVM, CVA, CCRP
Dr. Ancier grew up in Southern California where she completed her undergraduate studies at UCSB. She graduated with honors from Western University of Health Sciences where she received her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. Her clinical training was focused on rehabilitation and sports medicine for both small animals and horses. While in vet school, she was the national student president of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, which allowed her to learn about a wide range of emerging holistic modalities from some of the leaders in the field.
Dr. Ancier obtained her veterinary acupuncture certification (CVA) for both companion animals and horses from the Chi Institute in Florida and her canine rehabilitation practitioner certification (CCRP) from the University of Tennessee. She spent a few years as the clinical rehab director of a large facility in the Bay Area before moving back to the San Diego area. Dr. Ancier emphasizes pain management and preventative care, and utilizes both holistic and traditional medicine modalities as part of an integrative approach towards optimal animal wellness and healing.
She lives with her husband Kayvon and their small fur family consisting of their dog “Hannah” and four horses. In her spare time, she enjoys practicing pilates, riding her horses, and exploring all of the beautiful nature that Southern California has to offer.
