Dr. Celeste Skirvin was born and raised in central Illinois. She received her bachelor’s degree in Animal Sciences as well as her Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Illinois. After graduation in 2006, she and her husband (who is also a veterinarian) moved to Arizona. Dr. Skirvin has always loved animals and has wanted to be a vet since she was 5 years old. She has many varied experiences with different kinds of animals. She worked with pigs on a pig farm for 3 years during college. She also studied abroad in Australia during college and worked at a hospital that cared for injured wild koalas. She has worked at a high volume spay neuter clinic in the past, and now she enjoys private practice.

Dr. Skirvin has 2 young daughters, Gabrielle and Juliette, which is why she has decided to work part time for now.

In her free time she enjoys going to movies, traveling, hiking, working out, flower arrangement, making crafts, and spending time with her family.
