Dr. Otto graduated from Pine Bush High School and received a B.S. from SUNY Geneseo, a M.S. in Animal Science from Cornell University, and a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. Following graduation from UT in 1992, she moved to Central NY, practicing in mixed practice until devoting herself to companion animals at Camillus Animal Clinic in 2001. She purchased the practice in 2008. Her professional interests gravitate towards the challenges of surgery and the management of patients with chronic disease, and she is grateful for the bonds which have formed with her many long term clients and patients. She is married and has a Labrador retriever, Patton, and two cats, the Hurricanes Ivan and Wilma. If she is not working, she can likely be found under water diving on a wreck, at the range shooting, or in the field either training Patton for a retrieving test or hunting whatever game happens to be in season.
