Millie Grimes, DVM (practice limited to internal medicine)

ACCESS – South Bay

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, went to undergrad at Cal State LA (biology major), vet school at UC Davis, followed by a rotating and specialty internship at ASEC in West LA, and an IM residency at Texas A&M.

Like most veterinarians, my love of both science and animals drew me to the field. Internal medicine, specifically, drew me in because it involves a lot of problem solving/detective work and covers so many different body systems (though GI disease is my favorite).

Outside of veterinary medicine, I enjoy playing board games, trying new beers, reading, and learning strange science/animal facts. Recent obsessions include fermentation (ex. kombucha, sauerkraut), podcasts, and houseplants. Post-pandemic, I look forward to swing dancing. My only pets are two cats — a long-haired tabby named Sullivan and a Devon Rex named Hubble.
I met my husband, Mateo, in Texas, although he, himself, is Croatian. We are super excited to have moved to San Pedro and look forward to meeting everyone!
