Dr. Adrienne Gotz decided she wanted to become a veterinarian when she was 8 years old, after a career day at her elementary school. She came to California for vet school at UCDavis after receiving her undergraduate degree at Cornell University, in New York. She completed an internship in Northern California and worked in the Bay Area before settling in San Diego.

After over 20 years in private practice, Dr. Adrienne felt that the most important visit she had with her patients was the last one, and joined Paws Into Grace to help more pets and their families say goodbye to each other in the comfortable and loving surroundings of their own homes.

In her free time she enjoys camping or hiking with her family, including Rosie, the dog, or reading curled up on the sofa with Monkey and Bizz, the kitties.
