Dr. Libby Torchia joined the District Vet team in August of 2017. She hails from Ohio, where she attended The Ohio State University for both her undergraduate and veterinary education (Go Bucks!), graduating with a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2014. You could say that veterinary medicine is a family affair in the Torchia household – Dr. Torchia is vet #5 among her relatives!
After graduation, Dr. Torchia worked in Ohio for several years, during which time she honed her skills in soft tissue surgery and medical management. Dr. Torchia likes medicine best when it is an art, a science and a puzzle. Working as a team with owners and families, she is committed to helping pets live long and healthy lives.
Dr. Libby is based out of the Eastern Market office, but on occasion can be found at Brookland.
In her spare time, Dr. Torchia concentrates on her family: husband (Joe), dog (Mira) and cats (Rumple and Ivy). She is an avid runner and outdoor enthusiastic and is slowly improving her skills at cooking (anywhere is up from toast, right?).
