A most unique preceptioship was experienced the senior year at a mixed animal clinic in St. Augustine, Florida. After graduating from veterinary school, she began working at Union City Veterinary Emergency Clinic in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2009 Dr. Eckhoff decided to move back home and joined the staff here at Red Mountain Animal Clinic.
