Dr Willis has been practicing ophthalmology for almost 2 decades. A graduate of the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island, Canada, she continued her veterinary education with an internship at Michigan State College of Veterinary Medicine and completed her residency training in Comparative Veterinary Ophthalmology at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine.

The cat has been a long-term personal and professional passion for Dr. Willis, from their behavior, unique set of ocular conditions, and very special relationship with their owners. A cat-specific ophthalmology service within a cat-only practice is intended to provide the feline owner with a unique option to pursue specialty eye care for their pet in as calm and stress-free an environment as possible. Dr. Willis hopes that this environment coupled with her own practice standards of generous client education and a holistic approach to each cat, will provide your clients with a high-quality veterinary specialty experience. In addition, Dr Willis has long-supported various local animal shelters by providing them with low-cost ophthalmology care.
Dr. Willis resides in Arlington with her husband, son, three cats and a dog. She enjoys hiking and and various outdoor activities. She is also actively involved with the parent association in her son's school.
