Meet our Doctors

Jacqueline Nemi, VMD, DACVECC


Emergency & Critical Care

I grew up in Virginia and moved around the East Coast for much of my education before moving to California for residency. Despite the good weather, I was eager to move back across the country and couldn’t be happier to have settled in DC.  I have wanted to be a veterinarian for as long as I can remember and fell in love with the fast pace and complex cases of critical care medicine in my last year of veterinary school. Since then I have found special interest in transfusion medicine, respiratory disease, and sepsis. Outside of the hospital I enjoy visiting museums and galleries, exploring local food culture, and learning about and collecting wine. I currently live in DC with my two Bernese Mountain Dogs, Moose and Bunbury.
