Dr. Marisa Verwys, our Chief of Staff, is originally from Southern California, where she grew up with many cats and a family dog. She attended the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University earning a DVM degree. Dr. Verwys enjoyed four years in East Lansing and finally got to see some real seasons that she was deprived of growing in up in Southern California.
After graduation, Dr. Verwys moved to Florida where she spent eight wonderful years at a small animal practice and started a family as well. As much as Dr. Verwys enjoyed living in Florida, the pull of family and friends was stronger and she moved back to Michigan with her husband.
Dr. Verwys lives at home with her husband, two children, three dogs and three cats. She loves to spend time outdoors being active and traveling as a family. Dr. Verwys is looking forward to raising her children here in Grand Rapids and is planning on many wonderful years here at the Kentwood Cat Clinics.
