Dr. Maika A. Sharpe
I have always loved animals, and I discovered at a young age that I love science and medicine too. I got my bachelor’s of science degree and attended veterinary school at Michigan State University (go green!). I then completed an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at a busy practice outside of New York city. I worked as an emergency veterinarian in upstate New York for 2 years before moving to Grand Rapids and working in a general practice.
I enjoy the variety of cases that I see and people that I meet when I come to work every day. I am especially interested in animal behavior, dermatology, and dentistry.
My husband, who is also a veterinarian, and I live in Grand Rapids with our three active sons, two dogs, and one cat. When I am not working or spending time with family and friends, I enjoy running, gardening, and nature hikes.
