meet our veterinarians
Natasha Ungerer, DVM – Dr. Ungerer is a native of western New York. Growing up she always knew she wanted to be a veterinarian, and still feels that was a great decision! Dr. Ungerer obtained her BS degree from Sweet Briar College in southwest Virginia and her DVM degree from North Carolina University College of Veterinary Medicine. She then completed a one-year internship at a large referral/emergency hospital in Gaithersburg, MD. She has since worked in Richmond, VA and Frederick, MD before settling in Northern Virginia. Her professional interests include internal medicine, pain management and wellness and preventive care.
Dr. Ungerer and her husband (who keeps our offices digitally functioning!) have two daughters, as well as growing menagerie of pets: two crazy dogs, a fish, a snail, and six backyard chickens (named by their daughters ~ Moana, HeiHei, Pua, Diamond, Sparkle, and Tiara). In her spare time she enjoys being active outdoors, and has recently ventured into tennis and attempted vegetable gardening.
Kayleen Gloor, DVM, MS - Dr. Gloor is a true local. She grew up in Springfield, VA nd worked as kennel help/veterinary assistant at her neighborhood veterinary clinic while in high school. She graduated high school a bit young, so stayed close to home and attended NVCC while working in customer service for her father's furniture company. It was there she learned about the value of good client communication and service as well as got some great insight into small business ownership. She transferred to Virginia Tech for her undergraduate studies and stayed there for veterinary school. Upon obtaining her DVM in 2006 she came back to the DC area for a surgical/medical rotating internship at a large emergency/referral hospital in Gaithersburg, MD. It was there she met and befriended Dr. Ungerer. She has practiced in both general practice and emergency hospital settings in the DC area since 2006. Additionally, in 2009 she went back to school for a Masters in Public Health Microbiology & Emerging Infectious Diseases (nerd) at GWU. She completed this degree in 2011 - something she did while continuing to practice as well as working in a research lab at GWU. Her professional interests include infectious diseases, pain management, soft tissue surgery, emergency medicine and internal medicine.
Dr. Gloor is married and has two daughters, two cats, and a big, goofy English Mastiff named Gozer (the Gozerian - aptly named after the god of destruction from Ghostbusters). In her spare time she enjoys travelling, hiking, yoga, snowboarding and spending time with her family.
Sarah Tew, DVM - Joined CAC May, 2017 - Dr. Tew is a native of the Midwest with roots in Iowa and Missouri. She grew up with many family dogs and cats, and while working for her family veterinarian during college she was quickly set on her career choice. Dr. Tew earned a BS in Biology from Park University in Kansas City, and then went to the University of Missouri (Go Tigers!!) where she graduated with her DVM degree in 2006. During her first year as a veterinarian, she completed an internship in equine ambulatory practice at The Ohio State University. Although she loved it, continuing with equine practice was not in the cards so she turned to small animal medicine and hasn’t looked back. Dr. Tew’s professional interests include preventive care, dentistry, feline medicine (especially senior kitties), pain management, and internal medicine. Beyond medicine, she loves building relationships with her clients and patients and educating clients how to best care for their furry family members.
Dr. Tew lives in Leesburg with her Pointer mix, Stewart, and her former tabby farm cat, Emmitt. In her spare time, you will most often find her in her kitchen or backyard garden, at yoga, reading in or near a body of water, and most importantly, spending as much time as possible with her two adorable nieces, family, and friends.
Laura Adkins, DVM - Being part of a military family, Dr. Adkins was born in Tennessee and moved around the U.S.; though she spent the large majority of her youth in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. Her love of animals was apparent at a young age, when at 5 years old, she declared a desire to become a zoologist to study and help panda bears. She also had many childhood pets including dogs, guinea pigs, and gerbils. Dr. Adkins stayed close to home for her undergraduate degree, attending Georgia College and State University, where she pursued many interests, including music, art, and college level soccer. She earned a B.A. in Mass Communication and shortly afterward moved to New York City to launch her first career path as an advertising account executive. After working for a few years, Dr. Adkins felt a need to go back to her roots and find a career that incorporated her lifelong love of animals. She moved back to Atlanta and began volunteering at the Atlanta Humane Society, working at a local emergency animal hospital, and taking additional college coursework to apply for veterinary school. Dr. Adkins received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Georgia. Following veterinary school, she moved to Washington, DC to complete a one year rotating internship in small animal medicine at Friendship Hospital for Animals. Dr. Adkins’ professional interests include dentistry, surgery, dermatology, preventive care, behavior, shelter medicine, and animal welfare. Dr. Adkins enjoys educating her clients on how to help their furry family members live healthy, happy lives and is focused on providing compassionate care for her patients.
Dr. Adkins shares her home with a sweet, gentle, adopted hound mix named Brody. In her spare time, she enjoys being outdoors (hiking, biking, camping), yoga, reading, cooking, volunteering at local animal shelters, and spending time with friends and family.
Dana Carr, DVM - Dr. Carr is originally from Michigan. She grew up surrounded by animals and decided from an early age that she wanted to be a veterinarian. Dr. Carr earned her BS in Biological Anthropology from the University of Michigan (GO BLUE!). She then earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Michigan State University graduating in 2006. After veterinary school Dr. Carr moved to the Washington, DC area to complete a rotating medicine and surgery internship at Friendship Hospital for Animals. At the completion of her internship she continued to serve as a staff doctor at Friendship on and off for many years, as well as practiced briefly at hospitals in both Arlington, VA and Pittsburgh, PA. Her clinical areas of interest include senior and geriatric care, feline medicine, endocrine disease management, preventative and wellness care, soft tissue surgery, and dentistry.
