Dr. Wittu is currently in her third career, and her 18th year as a veterinarian at Bradford Park Veterinary Hospital. After graduating from Maple Woods Community College in Kansas City Missouri, she practiced as a registered veterinary technician full-time until she attended St. Johns School of Nursing in Springfield. After graduating, she had the privilege of working in the neonatal intensive care unit at St. Johns as an RN with some wonderful nurses and terrific neonatologists. Concurrently, she continued to work with a couple of excellent board certified veterinary surgeons at Bradford Park until she applied and was accepted in to the College of Veterinary Medicine in Columbia, MO. She was one of the older, nontraditional students that were termed “retreads” by the establishment’s veterinary teachers. During her training, she continued to work as a neonatal intensive care nurse at University Hospital in Columbia. At the end of four years living hand to mouth in a cheap trailer, in a cheaper trailer court, she graduated third in her class. She began her career at Bradford Park, where she has the privilege to care for the dearly loved pets of our wonderful clientele and to have access to a lot of the tools that can help us do the best we can for them. She has had, and does have, some wonderful and dearly loved pets of her own, and makes every attempt to treat the clients’ pets the way she would want her pets treated. She enjoys rescuing when she can, mostly Yorkshire terriers and Shepherds, but has rescued and placed dogs of many breeds, and of no particular breed. She has a small hobby farm where she keeps some horses and pet jersey cows. She enjoys the beauty and quiet of the countryside. In 2005, she adopted her daughter from Guatemala. She was 11-months-old when she brought her home, and she is now an active middle school student who plays the violin, makes A’s in all her classes, and can’t wait to get her first cell phone. She is truly a joy. She enjoys horseback riding when she can, shopping for antiques, playing with her dogs and cats, keeping active and having fun with her daughter, and doing freelance art when it is too cold to be outside.
