drfleming2.jpgDr. Fleming currently works as a veterinarian and co-owner at Levan Road Veterinary Hospital in Livonia, MI. She has 27 years of experience in the field of veterinary medicine, specifically in private practice small animal medicine and surgery. Dr. Fleming knew that she wanted to be a veterinarian since writing a career paper in eighth grade. She wrote about becoming an equine veterinarian in order to combine two interests, a love of horses and science. Since then, she went on to earn her Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degrees at Michigan State University in East Lansing. Despite still having a love of horses, Dr. Fleming became a small animal veterinarian and loves being able to help animals and people, and help enhance the human-animal bond. Always up-to-date with the development of veterinary medicine on a local, national and international scale, Dr. Fleming regularly participates in continuing education opportunities and is an active member of the MVMA www.michvma.org, AVMA www.avma.org and AAHA www.aahanet.org.

She is especially proud that Levan Road Veterinary Hospital earned AAHA accreditation in 2009; an accreditation program for veterinary practices nationwide that is entirely voluntary. The entire team worked hard for the practice to be evaluated on about 900 rigorous standards with the goal of providing the best patient care possible; only about 15% of veterinary practices nationwide are AAHA accredited. Once accredited, a practice must undergo on-site evaluations every three years to maintain accreditation.

A Detroit native and graduate of Cass Technical High School, Dr. Fleming now lives in Livonia with her husband, Greg, their son, Joseph, and their two cats.  When Dr. Fleming is not working, she likes to spend time with her family, scrapbook and bike ride.  She also enjoys visiting Mackinac Island with her family.
