Dr. Charlotte Tusler

Dr. Charlotte Tusler is a veterinarian for the College Veterinary Service program.

Charlotte grew up in Southern California in a bilingual French household and regularly traveled to Europe to visit family and spent her summers camping on Catalina Island. She developed an appreciation for animals early in life, caring for her many beloved pets.

She completed her undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at the beautiful University of California, Santa Barbara. She was an active member of her undergraduate pre-veterinary club, veterinary assistant at a small animal hospital, and veterinary volunteer at the Santa Barbara Zoo. Following this, Charlotte became an advocate for animal welfare as an animal health technician at the University of California, San Diego, where she worked with rodents, rabbits, birds, dogs, pigs and cows.

Charlotte obtained her veterinary degree at the University of California, Davis, where she was vice president of her class and a participant in many clubs, including the Pathology Club, Canine Medicine Club, Wildlife and Aquatic Animal Medicine Club, and the Veterinary Business and Management Club. She spent many weekends in low-cost spay/neuter clinics and vaccine clinics for the pets of the homeless individuals of Sacramento. Following veterinary school, she completed a small animal medicine and ER internship at the University of Saskatchewan. She then continued her advanced training and nurtured her curiosity for ophthalmology as an ocular pathology fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

When she is not dreaming of the warm West Coast, Charlotte spends her free time cooking, hiking with her dog, and playing badminton.
