Dr. Nicole Mueller
Since the 5th grade, Dr. Mueller was drawn to the veterinary field. She considered teaching or even becoming a Park Ranger, but she always came back to veterinary medicine—she felt it was her obligation to determine pets’ medical needs and figure out how to meet them.
Nicole grew up in the Milwaukee area. She attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for her undergraduate education and worked part-time at the veterinary school teaching hospital and campus dairy research barn. She stayed in Madison to receive her veterinary degree, and completed an internship in wildlife and conservation medicine at Tufts University in Massachusetts after graduating with her DVM. She then moved back to Milwaukee and now serves pets as an Associate Veterinarian at Brook-Falls!
Dr. Mueller particularly likes the wide variety of species she sees come through the clinic and educating owners on how to best care for exotic pets. Each winter she works at the UP200 Dog Sled Race in upper Michigan, and she loves taking what she’s learned at the clinic and applying it to the canine athletes on the trail.
Nicole and her husband, Chris, have a Golden Retriever named Talia and a Labrador mix named Violet. Talia and Violet enjoy long walks on the beach and their agility classes. When time permits, Dr. Mueller frequently backpacks, hikes, canoes, skis, runs, and bikes in the outdoors with her husband and dogs. Her dogs even have their own backpacks to share the load while on the trail!
