Dr. Rasmussen grew up in Santa Barbara and is so happy to be home. She completed her Bachelor of Arts in Organismal Biology and Ecology at Colorado College before returning to California to complete her DVM at Western University of Health Sciences. She has always loved animals, and grew up with a cat, a dog, various fish, birds and reptiles, but didn’t realize she wanted to be a vet until she took an anatomy lab during one summer in college.
She is fear free certified and a part of the local SBVVMA, and also volunteers at the SB Humane Society. LCAH is a great fit for Dr. Rasmussen as a fear free clinic with a positive and supportive atmosphere.
In her free time, Dr. Rasmussen likes to spend time with family and friends, practice yoga, shop at the local farmer’s market, go hiking, and walk on the beach.
