Dr. Josie Arkush started her professional career as a graphic designer after graduating with a fine arts degree from Northern Illinois University in 2001. After about 6 years, she chose a different life path and merged her fascination for medicine and body systems with her love for animals: she became a veterinarian graduating from the University of Illinois in 2012. She has been working at Animal Medical Center ever since. Veterinary medicine is a life of constant learning, and no two days are ever the same. On a daily basis, she has been awed and humbled by how amazing animals are, and by how powerful the human-animal bond is. She works closely with a brilliant, fun, and supportive team who is her family away from home. This is why she feels that she is exactly where she is supposed to be.
