Dr. Novak has been involved in the veterinary profession for more than twenty years. Her father, grandfather and uncle were all veterinarians, so the profession seems to be a family trend. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine in 2006 and started working here that summer. She lives with her husband, two kids, two cats (Doyen and Gelpi), and Boston Terrier dog Alma. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time outdoors, socializing with friends and family and reading.
