Dr. Brian Becker was born and raised in Northern Kentucky, very close to Cincinnati. He studied a bit of everything at the University of Notre Dame, especially Biology and Philosophy. After working a stint at the local zoo, he decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine, culminating in his graduation from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine in May 2018. Fulfilling a need to return to nature and a small, friendly community, he has decided to make the Peninsula his home.
Dr. Becker is extremely interested in animal behavior, anatomy, cardiology, and ultrasound imaging. He is hoping to build these skills to better contribute to the community.
In his spare time, the Doctor enjoys books and music, hiking, kayaking, and all things soccer. He loves spending time with his small family, including his partner, Emily, and their assorted pets. Keena is their very relaxed, middle-aged Labrador. A regal and aloof calico tabby rescue cat named Minerva is the matriarch of the household, and Leon is a rescued tuxedo cat who the family “scaredy-cat” because he is afraid of his own shadow.
Dr. Becker and Emily recently opened their home to a Guide Dog puppy. They will be acclimating her to all sorts of stimuli and teaching her the basics before sending her to her intensive training with Guide Dogs for the Blind.
