Dr. Bruketa was born and raised in a small town, just north of Peoria, IL. She received her bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Sciences before her education took her to the island of St. Kitts where she pursued her career in veterinary medicine.
From training horses in New Mexico to practicing shelter medicine in South Carolina to improving the genetics of government-owned cattle in St. Kitts, she discovered that she could mix passion with pleasure by traveling to gain experience with a variety of animals.
Her love for cattle kept her in the Midwest, but her passion for surgery and medicine brought her to Mayfair Animal Hospital. In her spare time, Dr. Bruketa enjoys outdoor activities, working out, and spending time with friends, family and her dog, Chance.
