Dr. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Miller, VMDAssociate Veterinarian
Dr. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Miller is an Associate Veterinarian at Good Shepherd Veterinary Hospital. She likes to think of herself as a resource for her clients and an advocate for her patients. Dr. Miller was born and raised in the Pittsburgh area, and is excited to serve the community she knows and loves! She earned her Bachelors of Science degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Messiah College in 2012. She then went on to earn her Veterinariae Medicinae Doctoris (VMD) degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2016. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medicine Association (AVMA) and the Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association (PVMA). She is certified through the National Veterinary Business Management Association (VBMA) Business Certificate Program, and is accredited through the USDA APHIS National Veterinary Accreditation Program (NVAP).

Dr. Miller knew she would become a veterinarian from a young age. She has always been drawn to animals, and those that know her well have called her an “animal charmer.” She believes in the great power of the human-animal bond, and has always had a strong emotional pull towards creatures of all shapes and sizes. Her interests within veterinary medicine include soft-tissue surgery, preventative medicine, diagnostic imaging, emergency medicine, and client education. She is thrilled to be joining the Good Shepherd team, and looks forward to participating in their community-oriented atmosphere!

Dr. Miller’s experience ranges from her first job as a dog groomer, to summers spent as a veterinary assistant volunteer, to a student extern in several private practices during veterinary school. She has traveled to Central America to participate in free spay/neuter clinics for in-need communities, and has spent time working in local shelters around the greater Pittsburgh area.

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends. She is an avid skier and snowboarder in the winter months, and enjoys swimming, biking, and kayaking in the summer. She loves to sing and hopes to learn to play guitar. She lives with her two cats, Piper and Savannah, and enjoys two family dogs, Sammie and Ronnie.
