A native of North Carolina, Dr. Jarchow, began practicing veterinary medicine in 2004 in Roanoke Rapids. She started her scientific career in biochemistry, obtaining her master’s degree studying the structure and function of cancer proteins. Yearning for more, she then moved into education and taught chemistry to the talented students of St. Mary’s Episcopal School in Memphis, Tennessee. She found veterinary medicine to provide the ideal combination of her love of teaching and scientific investigation.
Graduating from the University Of Tennessee College Of Veterinary Medicine, she moved back to her home state and has enjoyed practicing veterinary medicine every since. Dr. Jarchow’s many talents, compassionate attitude, and expansive veterinary skills make her a stellar asset to the medical team. Considering her special interest in feline medicine, it’s not surprising that her oldest nephew Nathan calls her the ‘cat doctor’, a moniker reinforced by the several cats that greet her every evening that provide her with unending displays of humor, affection, and mischief.
