Dr. Marsigliano (Dr. “Mars” or Dr. M) knew that she wanted to be a veterinarian from the time she could pronounce the word. She grew up in Staten Island, NY, and gained experience working at a wildlife rehabilitation center, animal shelter, and small animal clinic through high school and college. She studied Marine Science at the University of South Carolina, where she studied fish population dynamics and completed an NOAA Hollings Internship studying dolphin diets and performing post mortem exams on dolphins. She returned to New York to attend Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. While in vet school, she adopted her dog and participated in various dog sports, including agility, dog parkour, rally obedience, herding, and even mushing. In addition to her studies, she worked for a mobile spay/neuter clinic, and as an emergency surgery technician and anesthesia assistant in the teaching hospital.
After graduation, Dr. M moved to Jacksonville to escape the cold and work at the Jacksonville Humane Society, where she worked hard to reunite or keep pets with their families. She has been working as a relief (locum) veterinarian for the past year, working at various emergency and general practices throughout Jacksonville, St. Augustine, and other areas. She is currently serving as the president of the Jacksonville Veterinary Medical Society.
Her interests include emergency medicine, pain management, nutrition, neonatal and geriatric medicine. She enjoys client education and believes in empowering owners in the decision process for their pets’ care. She loves all animals but is especially fond of geriatric cats and “spicy” kitties, and works to reduce the stress felt by her patients at every visit.
Dr. Green received her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Florida (GO GATORS!) in 2010 before attending Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in St. Kitts. During her clinical year of Vet School at UF, she wrote a paper that was published in the Journal of Veterinary and Comparative Oncology titled “Bilateral removal of the mandibular and medial retropharyngeal lymph nodes through a single ventral midline incision for the staging of head and neck cancers in dogs”. While living on the gorgeous island of St. Kitts Dr. Green participated in a research project on artificial reefs and the fish that would choose to live there.
After graduation in January of 2015, Dr. Green moved to Jacksonville. She currently works at the Jacksonville Humane Society and is Chairman of the Board of the Jacksonville Veterinary Medical Society.
Dr. Green’s special interests include high-quality, high-volume pediatric spay/neuter, soft tissue surgery, surgical oncology, dentistry, geriatric feline medicine, and preventative care.
Dr. Green has 3 cats: Mama Iris aka The Queen, Hayden, and Ramone along with 1 dog Hank who thinks he is a 65lb cat. She looks forward to meeting your furry family members.
