Dr. Cummings-Hurst was born and raised in the Seattle area of Washington state. She received her DVM from Washington State University in 2008, then went on to complete a private practice internship at Willamette Valley Equine Medical and Surgical Center in northwestern Oregon. Craving warmer weather, she moved to New Mexico in 2009 where she worked as a mixed animal practitioner for 4 years.

Dr. Cummings-Hurst and her husband share their home with Rupert, a Welsh Corgi mix. She lost her beloved British Shorthair cat, Penelope, at the age of 21 after adopting her 11 years prior.

Some of her favorite things about veterinary medicine are client education, preventative care, and chronic disease management.
