Meet our Doctors

Jillian Garrity, DVM

Rotating Veterinarian

I grew up in Kennesaw, GA and from a young age felt a calling to care for animals. I was the classic little kid who knew she wanted to be a vet one day. This ultimately led to me studying animal science in undergrad and I received my Bachelor of Science from the University of Georgia in 2020. Four years in Athens was not enough, and I was fortunate to stay another four years and graduate from the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

When I am not at the hospital, I enjoy reading, Crossfit, and spending time with my fiancé, family, friends, and our crew (a Lab, a Brittany Spaniel, and a cat). I am looking forward to exploring the coffee shops, restaurants, and all D.C has to offer.

I am so excited to join the team at Friendship and start my career as one of their rotating interns!
