Biographical Info

With its daily challenges, veterinary medicine inspires Dr. Erica Schorr-Evans to continuously learn in order to provide pets with the very best possible care. Dr. Schorr-Evans grew up in Mexico and attended The American High School in Mexico City. She then moved to the United States and earned her bachelor’s degree in animal science (with distinction) from Cornell University in 1990. She still remains a member of the Cornell Alumni Admissions Ambassador Network (CAAAN) where she educates prospective students on the university’s opportunities.

After college, she went on to earn her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Wisconsin- Madison in 1994. While there, Dr. Schorr-Evans was recognized with the American Breeders Society Award and the Student Research Award. She was also the recipient of the Smith-Kilborne Foreign Animal Disease Scholarship and a Student Merit Scholarship. We were pleased to welcome her to our veterinary staff in July 2013.

Veterinary medicine combined all of Dr. Schorr-Evans’ interests (science, nature, surgery, medicine, and helping people) and made it the optimal career choice. Her particular professional interests lie in dermatology, endocrinology, dentistry and veterinary acupuncture. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association, the American Association of Veterinary Acupuncture, and the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society. In addition to working at veterinary hospitals, she has also spent time working at the Buffalo Zoo, the Cornell University Research Laboratory on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and as an intern at the William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute.

And as a veterinarian, she is never short on stories. “My first pet was a cat named Cleopatra that climbed through the wheel well onto the engine of our car,” she says. “We opened the hood when we heard her crying. After we cleaned the engine oil off of her, we took her home.”

When not at the hospital, Dr. Schorr-Evans may be found with her husband, David, daughter, Abigail, and cat, Mariposa. She also stays active with Zumba, running, quilting and making stained glass crafts.
