Dr. Garberson knew she wanted to be a veterinarian in middle school when decided she wanted to combine her love for animals with her desire to learn as much as she could about medicine and physiology. One of her favorite activities in high school was going running with her dog, Bailey. Dr. Garberson attended UC Davis to obtain her Bachelor's of Science degree in Animal Science. She went on to attend the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine to earn her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.

In 2012 Dr. Garberson joined the team at Vacaville Animal Care Center. Her passions are canine and feline preventative medicine, client education, and student outreach.

When not in the clinic, Dr. Garberson enjoys spending family time with her husband, Tom, her daughters, Charlotte and Ashley, her dog, Ivy, and her cat, Robin. She also likes to read, travel, and play fantasy football.
