Dr. Levitin was born and raised in the Wrigleyville area of Chicago, IL. She attended the University of Illinois where she received a Bachelor of Science in Animal Sciences with honors (2010) and a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine (2015). Following graduation, she completed a rotating internship at Veterinary Specialty Center (Buffalo Grove, IL). While Dr. Levitin always had a strong interest in neurology throughout veterinary school, her rotating internship found her interested in caring for more critical patients as well. She subsequently returned to the University of Illinois for a specialty internship in Emergency and Critical Care with an additional emphasis on Neurology. During her specialty internship, she developed a strong interest in cases that combined these two specialties, including management of cluster seizures, implementing treatment for encephalitides, and head trauma. Her research involving the pharmacokinetics of an outpatient treatment protocol for suspected immune-mediated encephalitides in dogs won the 2020 ACVIM Forum Resident Research Award in Neurology. Throughout her course of education, Dr. Levitin had a goal of moving to a city similar to where she grew up, but with more warmer days. She has just moved to Austin and is very excited to explore hiking trails, sip coffee at local shops, and spend time reading both fiction and nonfiction outside in the Texas sunshine. Dr. Levitin and her husband also treasure their time with their two dogs, Penny Lane and Emma, and one cat, Smokey.
