Dr. Jordan Nuccio knew from an early age that she would work with animals and their people. During vet school at Tufts University Veterinary School in Massachusetts she began to realize that the conventional approach to veterinary medicine wasn’t always enough. “While I highly value the diagnostics and treatments available to us these days in conventional veterinary medicine I believe that sometimes we can overlook the uniqueness of each animal by labeling it with a diagnosis and treating it as such.”
During her last year in vet school, after spending a rotation mentoring with an integrative veterinarian and faculty member at Tufts, she found the balance that she was looking for between high quality medicine and individualized treatment plans which borrowed from multiple modalities.
She became certified in veterinary acupuncture by the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS) immediately upon graduation from vet school and is in the process of completing certification in Veterinary Chinese Herbal Medicine by IVAS.
When not at Two Rivers Veterinary Clinic she can be found as a volunteer veterinarian at the Audubon Wildlife Care Center where she works to rehabilitate injured and orphaned wildlife, or at home with her two children, her husband, two dogs and two cats.
