Dr. Pike graduated from Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in 2003. After graduation, she was commissioned as a Captain into the United States Army Veterinary Corps. It was dealing with the Military Working Dogs that spurred her initial interest in behavior medicine. After getting off of active duty in 2006, Dr. Pike worked exclusively in small animal practice where she furthered her love of behavior medicine by seeing cases and teaching puppy socialization classes. In 2011, the Pike family was stationed in the St. Louis area at Scott Air Force Base where Dr. Pike started seeing behavior referrals in a Residency program officially approved by the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists (ACVB) under the mentorship of Dr. Debra Horwitz, DACVB. In October 2015, Dr. Pike passed the ACVB certifying examination, officially becoming a boarded veterinary behaviorist.
Dr. Pike is the owner of Veterinary Behavior Solutions in Louisville, Kentucky where she sees referral behavior cases. Dr. Pike is a clinical faculty member for E-training for dogs, an online education forum for dog owners and professionals and is also a member of the Fear Free Advisory Committee, advising general practitioners on the art of practicing “Fear Free”. In her spare time, she enjoys hanging out with her family, including her Active Duty Army husband, their two kids, ages 2 and 7, a Scottie, a Mini Schnauzer, a Devon Rex kitten, and an African Ring Neck Parrot.
