Dr. Nava graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008, with honors. She has been with the Bevlab team since 2010 and loves the family-like atmosphere this clinic offers.
”I became a veterinarian because I grew up on a farm and loved animals! I wanted to become a doctor anyway, but being around animals was comforting to me and, therefore, I decided I would be a doctor for animals instead of people. My goal for every patient visit is to make sure the client feels comfortable with the treatment plan. I have a lot of experience and I know what can be best, however, the client might need to be cautious of cost or time when visit can be done. I try to be very sensitive of that. I try to live by the saying ‘Treat others as you would like to be treated’. I have a calmness about myself that can help calm others and that greatly helps in my line of work.”
She has been married to her husband since 2007 and started off with one Akita, Kaya, that she got in veterinary school. Then they got Akita number two, Kuma, in 2013 as a puppy. They are both lovely with her twin boys who were born in 2017. Their family is complete and happy with this clan!
