DVM – Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, 2015

Why Emergency Medicine:
I love the variety associated with emergency medicine. Veterinary medicine is such an exciting field to work in and being an emergency veterinarian takes this up a notch.  Not knowing what is coming through the door at any moment forces our team to be up for anything.  I also love helping clients through the scary and tough times that tend to bring people to the ER.  If I can make an emergency experience less stressful for an owner or animal, I feel like I’ve done my job well.

Dr. Kozlowski joined VEG in 2020 as the medical director of the first Chicago location.  She has worked primarily in urgent care before transitioning into emergency medicine full time.  She is very excited to join the VEG family and introduce Chicago to VEG!  Her clinical interests include soft tissue surgery, reproductive emergencies, and gastrointestinal diseases.

Outside of work, Dr. Kozlowski enjoys running and spending her time with her husband and two children.  She also has two rescue dogs, Lily and Agnes, and two cats, Jack and Milo.

Get to know me

If I were a superhero, my superpower would be:
I’m a working mother with two young children, that is my superpower!

What are you happiest doing when you’re not working?
Spending time with my kids, running, or hiking.

What has been the most rewarding part of your career/position?
The most rewarding part of my career has been working to open VEG Lincoln Park.  I absolutely love talking to primary care veterinarians around Chicago and introducing them to VEG. I am so excited to open and to start helping the animals of Chicago!
