Dr. Wiggins moved to the Capital District from Tennessee in 2002, a couple of years after graduating from the University of Tennessee, College of Veterinary Medicine. She worked for a large local practice for many years prior to purchasing her own practice. One of her medical interests and expertise involves allergies and how they cause systemic disease. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) as well as the state and local veterinary associations. She has a great cat, Stanley that enjoys spending time lounging in the cat condo room in the window or in his outdoor enclosure watching the birds fly by. The love of her life is pictured here and was a tricolor King Charles Cavalier named Freckles who went to the Rainbow bridge in August 2011. (If you ask the staff, they would say he was the real owner of 4 Paws Veterinary Care!) She spends her free time enjoying hobbies such as sailing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, cooking, gardening, and going to the ocean as often as possible.
Dr. White grew up on a farm in Montpelier Vermont before going off to Michigan State University for her undergrad studies. She then continued on to Ross University in the Caribbean for a bit before finishing her last year of Veterinary School at Oklahoma State. She and her 3 children have now made a home in Albany. She grew up helping animals on the farm and helping them brought her so much joy. Now as a Veterinarian she gets to feel that joy every day when a pet goes home with their owners feeling better than when they came in. As a professional she enjoys all aspects of general medicine including surgery, dentistry, internal medicine and wellness care. She has a profound interest in dermatology and is aspiring to learn acupuncture in the near future. She and her 19 year old twins Caleb and Rosalia, and her 9 year old daughter Eliza share their home with 2 dogs and a cat. As a family they enjoy spending time with their horse at the barn and attending horse shows. Dr. White loves just being outdoors and likes to visit the ocean and beach when time allows.
