Dr. Kristy Sopkin

A lifelong Florida resident, Dr. Sopkin developed a career in marine science, researching hurricane impacts with the National Hurricane Center in Miami and the U.S. Geological Survey in St. Petersburg, before deciding to return to college to fulfill her lasting dream of becoming a veterinarian. She is a 2020 graduate of the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. While pursuing the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, she earned the Professional Certificate in Shelter Medicine. Her particular interests in veterinary medicine include primary care, internal medicine, and radiology.

Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Sopkin enjoys spending time with her cats, tinkering with various hobbies, and visiting Florida’s parks. She is thrilled to be working with the team at Parkway Animal Hospital and to find herself, once again, close to Florida’s beaches!
