Dr. Samanthia Fierstein grew up in Calvert County Maryland and attended undergrad at Towson University. She then completed her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, magnum cum laude, in 2020 from St. George’s University located on the beautiful island of Grenada. But after living in the Caribbean for three years, and finishing her clinical year at North Carolina State University, she was drawn back to Maryland to practice small animal medicine.
While in school, Dr. Fierstein was very involved with Feral Cat Project, a trap-neuter-release program. From this, she became passionate about shelter medicine and improving feline care. Her love for travel and giving back to the community has led to her going to Africa and Ecuador for veterinary relief work. However, you can always find her planning her next big trip!
When she’s not working, Dr. Fierstein enjoys hiking and soaking up her surroundings; whether it’s on a beach, boat, or even mountainside. She loves to hang out with family and friends, especially when able to explore new cuisines and restaurants.
