Dr. Menasco’s love for animals began at an early age when her family moved to a small farm in Cartersville, VA where they quickly starting to acquire various farm animals. She would also tag along with her mom to work at a local small animal clinic. Naturally, the desire to become a veterinarian grew. Dr. Menasco traveled to the sunny state of Florida to attend the University of Florida where she received her Bachelor's Degree in Animal Science in 2007 and Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2012.
Following graduation, she packed up her Floridian husband and moved back to Virginia to start practicing veterinary medicine. Dr. Menasco joined the Fork Union Animal Clinic team Spring of 2019. She currently resides on a small farm in Fork Union with her husband Robert and three young sons (Austin, Corbin and Ramsey).
While not at work, Dr. Menasco can be found updating her a mid-1800’s home and being outdoors with her family. Her furry family includes a senior hound dog (Maybel), two cats (Hunter and Grayson) who compete for mom’s attention, two miniature donkeys (Badonkey and Cricket) who love attention from all the children, as well as chickens and cattle.
