Dr. Tuccillo is a lover of animals, adventures, and the beach. These interests led her to the University of Rhode Island, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in animal science with a minor in biology. After a few years managing a small animal hospital, she decided to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian. This chapter steered her to St. George's University School of Veterinary Medicine in Grenada, West Indies. Dr. Tuccillo's main goal in veterinary medicine is to help people keep their furry family members happy and healthy so that they can be part of their lives for as long as possible. Dr. Tuccillo has Joey Mae, the one-eyed wonder dog sidekick, a big dog brother, Capone, and two cat sisters, Paisley and Harper.
