Clinical Services Grand Strand Humane Society

Our staff veterinarian, Dr. Jennifer Matera, is a native of western Massachusetts and graduated from Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. She earned her undergraduate degree at Mount Holyoke College. After earning her DVM, she moved to South Carolina to work in small animal private practice. Dr. Matera joined Grand Strand Humane Society in 2017 and to Dr. Matera, making the transition to shelter medicine has proven to be the most gratifying experience of her career. When not in the clinic, she enjoys DIY projects, crafting, restoring or upcycling furniture, everything beach-related, riding her cruiser bicycle, and quality time with her very spoiled kitties.
