She started her college career at SUNY Cobleskill before transferring to The Ohio State University to finish her bachelor’s and attend Veterinary school. Before joining us, Rebecca worked in a mixed animal practice seeing a wide variety of animals in the Adirondacks but decided that she would like to move closer to home and focus her skills on companion animals. Rebecca is married to her high school sweetheart Chris and the two of them share a home with two dogs and two cats. Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Glock is passionate about cooking, crocheting, and video games.

Elyse also has a BFA in Graphic Design and Animation from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles and is a talented illustrator and watercolor artist, specializing in pet portraits. When she’s not at the hospital, you can almost always catch Elyse outdoors — camping, hiking, horseback riding — and never without her dog Chillona too far behind!

When she isn’t at work, Greta loves being outdoors and spending time with her family, her chihuahua Lucy, and her three chinchillas: Biscuit, Cookie, and Muffin!
