Lindsey Van Brown

DVM

Dr. Lindsay VanBrown grew up in northern MN, and obtained her BA in Biology from St. Olaf College in 2005. Immediately after school, she worked at the Mayo Clinic, and eventually made her way to a small animal shelter in McCall, ID where she realized veterinary medicine was calling her. It was there that her interest in integrative medicines began as she realized that just medicating the shelter animals for various diseases wasn't enough to make them wholly healthy.

She attended Washington State University and received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree in 2012. While in veterinary school, she traveled to China and completed coursework in Veterinary Chinese Medicine at the Beijing Agricultural University. Dr. VanBrown furthered her Chinese Medicine training at the Chi Institute where she completed her acupuncture certification.

Since graduation, Dr. VanBrown has been a shelter and general practice veterinarian, with a private practice in Helena dedicated to Chinese veterinary medicine as well as hospice care. She followed her Helena-native husband to the area, and happily enjoys biking and skiing with him and their two dogs, while they all watch their house get taken over by an infant.
