Dr. Hire grew up near Atlanta, Georgia and attended the University of Georgia where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Microbiology and Biology. She loved UGA (and animals!) so much that she decided to stay an extra four years to receive her doctorate from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. Longing for a life near the mountains, she made the move to Salt Lake City. Dr. Hire enjoys the variety and excitement of general practice, but especially appreciates having the ability to develop strong relationships with her clients and patients. Her particular interests include surgery, internal medicine, and dentistry. In her free time, Dr. Hire enjoys training for triathlons, hiking, skiing, traveling, trying new food, and spending time with her dogs.
