Dr. Brink returned to AEH after graduating from Michigan State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. She has always had interest in leadership, and finds great fulfillment in her role as Medical Director. She enjoys giving back to the profession though mentorship of veterinary students and new graduate veterinarians. Dr. Brink enjoys collecting and restoring vintage My Little Ponies, running, scrapbooking, drawing, traveling, and spending time with her family.
