Grace Gottwald was born on Nantucket and has spent every summer on island. Always an animal lover, Grace found her passion for veterinary medicine as a child and pursued it during her undergraduate studies at Northeastern University. 

Grace currently works for a veterinary health start-up company called Fuzzy Pet Health, a telemedicine/home-visit pet care service. On Nantucket, Grace and her fiancé take rescue dog Murray on long walks at Sanford Farm and to the beach, where he has become the best scalloping buddy.
