Dr. Andrea Reid:

Dr. Reid attended veterinary school at UC Davis where she graduated in 2010 at the top of her class. Throughout her education, she was awarded several scholarships for academic excellence as well as interest in promotion of the human animal bond, interest in canine and feline medicine, and demonstrated interest in private practice.

Her undergraduate studies were completed at UCLA, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. She credits her involvement with Guide Dogs of America in Sylmar during her senior year at UCLA for giving her the inspiration she needed to pursue a career in veterinary medicine.

Prior to veterinary school, Dr. Reid gained invaluable experience working with stray, injured, and abandoned animals at the Central California SPCA in Fresno- one of the highest volume animal shelters in the country. Over the past several years, she has fostered more than fifty homeless dogs and cats and found permanent, loving homes for them all. Today Dr. Reid continues to participate in shelter medicine as the resident shelter veterinarian at the Santa Barbara Humane Society every Friday.

Before she joined White’s in 2015, she spent 2 years practicing emergency medicine at AVS, a 24 hour specialty and emergency hospital right here in Santa Barbara. Prior to that, she practiced both primary care and emergency medicine at a very busy 24 hour hospital in central California.

Dr. Reid has special interests in dermatology, soft tissue surgery, and oncology. She lives in Goleta with her husband whom she met as an undergraduate at UCLA. She has two amazing yellow Labradors, one moody cat, and a very cute Connemara pony. When not working, Dr. Reid enjoys playing with her dogs, gardening, and riding her pony.
