Dr. Dahill grew up in Rhode Island. After studying Animal Science at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, she received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Illinois in 2003. She began her veterinary career in equine practice with an equine internship in Ocala, Florida and then joined an equine ambulatory practice in southern New Jersey. Dr. Dahill began transitioning to canine/feline practice in 2006 by joining a mixed animal practice in southern Maine. In 2011, her sense of adventure then took her to the beaches of Grenada where she worked as a clinical professor at St. George’s University veterinary teaching hospital. In 2014, after several years of exploration, it was time to return home and she happily joined the PRAH family. Her main areas of interest are preventative care and internal medicine. When not in the clinic, she enjoys running, hiking, and taking in all that the city and state have to offer.
