Dr. Gallen-O’Neill graduated cum laude from Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2021. While in school, she received the AAFP Outstanding Senior Award, and she is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association. She always wanted to be a veterinarian, ever since growing up on her grandparents’ dairy farm in rural Donegal, Ireland. She loves developing relationships with her clients and being their support system for their four-legged family members, during both the good times and the hard times.
Dr. Gallen-O’Neill and her husband Connor have one dog, a Rottweiler/Retriever mix named Mosley, but they do plan on getting another dog very soon! In her spare time, Dr. Gallen-O’Neill loves traveling the world with her husband, exploring new places and trying new foods and beers. They also love hiking and spending time outdoors. One of her favorite places she’s visited so far is the town of Rinn, located in Austria and nestled in the middle of the Austrian Alps.
