Dr. Goldacker grew up locally in Levittown, Pa. She realized her passion for animals in college during her animal/wildlife studies. During the summers, she would work at a veterinary hospital, igniting her interest in small animal medicine and surgery. She ventured all the way out to Oklahoma State University, where she graduated in 1994 with her Veterinary degree. Thankfully, she found her way to NPAH in 2015.
Dr. Goldacker has a special interest in internal medicine, ultrasound imaging, dentistry, exotic animal care and client communications.
In her spare time, Dr. Goldacker enjoys hiking/being outdoors-studying wildlife/birds, gardening, photography, dance and sharing time with her husband Mike and their two children, Kyle and Tamara. She also shares her home with a menagerie of companions including: three dogs, Ponyo, Lily and Kanga; two cats, Marvin and Brown Nose; a pot-bellied pig, Pumba and a parakeet, Tito.
