Sophie Kindberg-Hanlon, BVetMed, PGCertSAS, MRCVS

Staff Veterinarian

General Surgery, Primary Care

I grew up in the British countryside surrounded by animals and always wanted to be a veterinarian. I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College of the University of London and practiced in London for several years before relocating to Washington, D.C with my husband. We live in Capitol Hill with our three children and two miniature dachshunds. Aside from my clinical work I serve on the Board of Veterinary Medicine in D.C. When not working, I enjoy running along The National Mall or immersing myself in the city’s modern art galleries.
