Dr. Lauren Castleberry was raised in Eden Prairie, Minnesota where she developed a fondness for winter, snow and polar bear plunges! She received her undergraduate degree in Biology with a concentration in Marine Science from Boston University. She most enjoyed living across the street from Fenway Park and spending a semester on Cape Cod. She later completed her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. While in school she visited Charlotte for the first time and instantly knew that North Carolina was where she was meant to be. It has the best combination of people, geography and sunshine. Plus “no more scraping snow off of my car everyday!”
Dr. Castleberry is a self-described health nut but can’t turn down anything spicy; hot sauce is her favorite food. She enjoys being outdoors to hike, run, kayak, practice yoga or just be still. She is a huge sports fan and loves to catch live games, “Knights, Panthers, Hornets, etc…” in her free time. Dr. Castleberry has one dog, a terrier cross, named Graham who likes to snuggle and also really enjoys visiting family in Indiana and doesn’t even mind the long car trip! Her special interests in veterinary medicine are wound care, surgery, anesthesia and pain management.
