Chelsea Jurczenko, DVM
Dr. Chelsea Jurczenko was born in Greenville, Pennsylvania. She developed a love for animals early on, growing up with a menagerie of pets and deciding on a career in veterinary medicine at age five. She realized this decision was the right one as she continued to develop an interest in science and medicine. Dr. Chelsea graduated from Westminster College in Pennsylvania with a Bachelor's degree in Biology and went on to attend Purdue University, where she received her DVM in 2011.
While attending veterinary school, she completed an externship in Port St. John, FL and fell in love with the area, being an outdoor and water enthusiast. Dr. Chelsea practiced in Deltona, FL after graduation and feels fortunate to have joined the Island Animal Hospital team in 2013. Her interests are small animal internal medicine, surgery, and particularly, dentistry. When not caring for pets, she enjoys spending time with her sweetheart, Reid, doing outdoor activities such as paddle-boarding, hiking, canoeing, and running. They are the proud "parents" of their greyhound, Justice, miniature dachshund, Scooby, Cuban anole, Amelia and chinchillas, Fiona and Dagny.
