Marina Mavromatis received her DVM degree from North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2013. She then completed a one-year small animal rotating internship at VCA SouthPaws Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Center in Fairfax, Virginia and a residency in diagnostic imaging at Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in Massachusetts. Dr. Mavromatis became a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Radiology in 2017. While she appreciates all aspects of diagnostic imaging, her favorite modality is MRI.
Marina was raised in a traditional Greek-American household in Charlotte, NC (gyro is pronounced “yee-roh” 😉). She and her husband, Michael, enjoy traveling the world and they have visited more than half of the United States (Seattle, Washington is their favorite stop to date), Greece, China (they loved walking the wall!), and multiple countries in Central America and the Caribbean. Their preferred way to travel is by cruise ship and they can’t wait to take an Alaskan cruise, hopefully someday soon. When they aren’t traveling to distant lands, they enjoy kayaking, watching movies, visiting wineries and breweries, or renting small planes for a quick flight as Michael is a licensed pilot. They currently share their home with a pair of Frenchie lemons they call Piper Boodawggie and Cirrus Mamaboo (did we mention Mich loves aircraft?), a yellow nape Amazon parrot (you might have seen her in some promotional VRC photos or in the collage in the lobby!), and a 325 gallon semi-aggressive saltwater FOWLR tank with 15 named fish (aka a live daily soap opera).
