Dr. Marta Pawluk: Staff Veterinarian

Dr. Marta Pawluk - Staff Veterinarian

Dr. Marta Pawluk was born and raised in Poland. Upon graduating from high school, she left her home country to study in the United States. She completed her undergraduate studies in Philadelphia, graduating Cum Laude from Temple University. From there, she headed off to veterinary school in Grenada, West Indies where she graduated Summa Cum Laude from St. Georges University. After several years of island living in Grenada, she headed back to the US to complete her clinical year at Cornell University followed by an externship at the University of Pennsylvania.
 
While attending veterinary school, Dr. Marta particularly enjoyed emergency medicine cases. Owning and fostering shelter animals all her life, she has also been a proponent of rescued animals volunteering at several spay/neuter clinics while studying veterinary medicine. Dr. Pawluk also donates her time to help our local animal shelters and rescue groups.

Away from work, Dr. Marta enjoys spending time outdoors. Her hobbies include hiking, running and playing tennis. Now living in the Keys, she is thrilled to be back near the water where she likes to SCUBA dive, kayak and paddle board. Dr. Marta resides in Key Largo with “Meitschi”, an island dog that she adopted while in Grenada.
