Dr. Andrea Lee has been a part of the Fairmount team since 2002. She grew up in Dutchess County, NY. She was inspired to be a Veterinarian by her first dog, Marcus (you can see his photo in our exam room 5!) and his Veterinarian, who was a model of kind, supportive care.
She is a graduate of Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. In addition to her DVM degree, Dr. Lee also has a Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Sciences from Goucher College and a Master’s Degree in Neurobiology and Behavior from Cornell University.
