Dr. DeRosa was raised in central Connecticut but headed west as she worked toward her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian. In 1998, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in biology from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota and then received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Purdue University in 2002. After graduating from Purdue, she worked at small animal practices in both central and eastern Connecticut, prior to joining Newington Veterinary Clinic in 2018. Dr. DeRosa is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Connecticut Veterinary Medical Association. When she's not working, she enjoys rooting for the Red Sox, playing tennis, hiking, gardening and travel.
