Desiree Henderson

Desiree Henderson grew up in Ocala, Florida. From an early age, she knew she wanted to work with animals. Her favorite memory consists of her childhood dog, Mac, always waiting at the bus stop every afternoon to meet her and her siblings to make sure they did not walk home alone.

Outside of the veterinary field, Desiree loves to go kayaking and snowboarding. She’s also an avid reader and enjoys baking. She lives with her boyfriend, daughter, dogs – Jocko (a four-year-old Jack Russell Terrier), Lucy (two-year-old Maltese), ferrets (Bear and Brownie), and an aquarium of 100 fish!

Desiree comes to UrgentVet Gainesville with ten years of experience working in a general practice setting.

She’s proud to lead her care team and serve the pets and pet parents of Central Florida.
