Dr. Edge grew up in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, and Chatham, Massachusetts. She earned her bachelor’s degree in physics at Connecticut College in 1995, and then went on to pursue a master’s degree in engineering physics at the University of Virginia. It was during her time there that she adopted her first dog, Jefferson, and began volunteering at a small animal hospital as well as an equine hospital. These experiences led to her decision that her true calling was veterinary medicine. She earned her DVM degree from the Virginia–Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech in 2003. During her senior year, Dr. Edge was inducted into the national veterinary honor society, Phi Zeta, and was honored with several awards including the American Animal Hospital Association senior student award for excellence in small animal medicine and surgery.
Also during her senior year, Dr. Edge spent a 4-week clerkship at Greater Annapolis Veterinary Hospital. Shortly after graduation, she joined the staff full time. She loves living and working in Annapolis and feels very fortunate to have developed so many wonderful relationships with her clients and patients over the years. Dr. Edge sees exotic mammals in addition to dogs and cats. She has a special interest in ultrasound and through continuing education has earned certification in advanced abdominal ultrasonography.
Since the birth of her daughter in 2007, Dr. Edge is on a part-time schedule. She currently resides in Annapolis with her veterinarian husband, as well as their daughter, son and 2 cats. Outside of the office, she enjoys traveling, hiking, reading, sailing, and the occasional round of golf.
