Dr. Golden began volunteering at a veterinary hospital while in high school and hasn't looked back. She joined Forest Glen Animal Hospital in September 2013. A member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Chicago Veterinary Medical Association, Dr. Golden's professional interests include emergency medicine, surgery, and internal medicine.
"I thoroughly enjoy discussing different diseases and preventable care measures so our clients always understand why we are doing certain things with their pets," she says. "Additionally, I enjoy the science of veterinary medicine and how different medical options can help each individual."
Dr. Golden earned her Bachelor's Degree in Spanish and Biology from Augustana College, where she was a member of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. She went on to earn her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine with honors from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine. While there, she was a member of Phi Zeta, the veterinary honor society.
At home, Dr. Golden is mom to a loveable yellow Labrador Retriever mix named Moose. She enjoys spending time outside work playing volleyball, running, and playing outdoors with Moose.
