Dr. Victoria Skoog, DVM

Ohio State University School of Veterinary Medicine – 9 years in practice.

Dr. Victoria Skoog graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in 2008 and graduated from the Ohio State College of Veterinary medicine in 2012. She has a strong passion for internal medicine, parasitology, and soft tissue surgery. Her ultimate goal was always to run a veterinary practice, and thanks to Dr. Jody Dickey, her wish came true in May of 2019 at Confederate Woods Veterinary Hospital. She loves her employees and hopes that she will be able to help lead and grow the practice.

Dr. Skoog has been interested in the veterinary field from a very young age. When she was four, she wanted to be a professional singer, but at five, she realized veterinary medicine was the way. At ten, she saw her first surgery, a cat declaw, with an eccentric, well-loved local veterinarian, Dr. Wassel (Dr. Wassel was famous for bringing a pheasant to a local chicken flying competition at the county fair).

At fourteen, she worked for a local dog groomer and worked her way up to veterinary assistant in undergrad. In graduate school, she worked as a veterinary technician on weekends. She can’t imagine doing any other job, although occasionally daydreams about being a Starbucks Barista on really intense days at the clinic. She has a very excitable, destructive, affable Irish setter-golden retriever mix, Beaker, and two lovely felines, Miss Beans and Lily. In her free time, she attends a book club, rotary, and likes to go for the occasional swim at the YMCA.

Dr. Kelly Smiley was born and raised in Hanover Pennsylvania. She has traveled extensively, spending 4 years in Japan teaching English and working part time as a veterinary technician on Yokosuka Naval Air Station. She graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelors degree in microbiology and earned her veterinary degree from Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine 4 years later. She commissioned in the US army and was stationed at Travis Air Force Base for 3 years, caring for the military working dogs and for the service member’s pets. During her time in the military, she completed the animal acupuncture course at Colorado State University. She relocated to Cheyenne Wyoming and worked for a busy small animal practice before accepting a position as a contract veterinarian on FE Warren Air Force Base, once again caring for the working dogs and privately owned pets.

Dr Smiley moved back to Hanover Pennsylvania to be closer to family and friends. She joined our practice in April 2016 and is very pleased to be part of such a progressive and compassionate practice.
