More about Dr. Grimes

Dr. Chelsea Grimes originally hails from Metro Detroit. She is excited to be living and working on the west side of Michigan so she can explore the natural beauty and entertaining events that the greater Grand Rapids area has to offer.

She graduated "With Honors" and the highest GPA of her program at Michigan State University's Lyman Briggs College with a bachelor of science degree in Biomedical Laboratory Diagnostics. She then went on to the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University graduating in 2013 with a DVM degree along with the classmates that she lead for four years as the class co-president. 
 
Dr. Grimes extended her veterinary knowledge with a rigorous, one year small animal rotating internship at VCA Advanced Veterinary Care Center in Fishers, Indiana. Here, Dr. Grimes completed rotations working alongside board certified veterinarians specializing in: neurology, oncology, emergency care, radiology, ophthalmology, dermatology, surgery and internal medicine. Upon completion of her internship, Dr. Grimes returned to her home state of Michigan working as an associate veterinarian at both The Michigan Humane Society in Detroit and then later in at Madison Veterinary Hospital in Madison Heights. 
 
Outside of the hospital, Dr. Grimes enjoys snowboarding in the western mountains of the United States, boating/water sports, going to the beach, and reading. As a former gymnast and diver she also enjoys pilates and yoga exercises. 
 
Dr. Grimes is thrilled to be an associate veterinarian at Cascade Hospital for Animals where she has the opportunity to practice a high quality of medicine with a collaborative group of colleagues. She is looking forward to developing the trust of long term clients/patients and working with you to maintain the health of your cherished four legged companion(s) so that bond between owner and pet can continue to flourish!
