Natalie Morgan, DVM, DACVIM
A Minnesota native, Natalie moved to Wisconsin in 2008 and earned her BS in Animal Science from UW-Madison in 2012. She then earned her DVM from Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2016, after which she stayed in Ames to complete her rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at ISU. Following internship, Natalie was accepted into a cardiology residency at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, which she completed in 2020. Natalie loves all things cardiology, but especially enjoys managing chronic and complicated congestive heart failure cases that allow her to establish close relationships with her patients and their parents. Natalie also has a passion for mental health and wellness and is a strong believer in improving work-life balance in veterinary medicine. On the “life” end of that balance, Natalie enjoys cooking, traveling, reading, dancing, singing, playing music, watching true crime documentaries, and hanging out with her husband and their two dogs and two cats.
