Growing up, Dr. Enk enjoyed helping her parents manage their two diabetic cats, rescuing the local strays, and being fascinated by the local wildlife. As a fourth grade student, she had to write a report on her dream for the future; her poster was all about being a veterinarian.
Born in Chicago, she attended high school in Algonquin, IL. After earning a Bachelor of Animal Sciences at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, she received her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Ross University, in St. Kitts, West Indies. Her clinical training was completed at the University of Illinois. Some of her favorite experiences include spending one month as an extern at Brookfield Zoo and assisting with anesthesia at the Exotic Feline Rescue Center in Indiana for tiger dentals.
Dr. Enk's free time is spent with family and friends, traveling, and catching the latest movie/show. A favorite vacation spot is anywhere with water, sand, and sun.
