SOPHIA NORBERG, DVM

A native of Connecticut and UCONN alumna, Dr. Norberg graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. She pursued a rotating internship in large animal medicine and surgery at the University of Georgia where she learned to appreciate sweet tea, air conditioning, and a good bottle of roach killer. Hired by a private practice in 1995, she returned to Minnesota, home of her favorite sport, broomball. The brutal winter of 1996 and lack of marriage prospects in a small town compelled her to return to the U of M for a residency in large animal internal medicine.  During that time, she met her husband, Dan, and they have three grown children and three grandchildren.  She has worked in small animal private practice for 25 years focusing mostly on urgent care type cases. She spent 6 years at the University of Minnesota, helping get their new Urgent Care Service off the ground first as a relief doctor and finally as an Assistant Professor. Her professional interests include internal medicine cases, ultrasound, and client education. She has a soft spot for Labradors and elderly cats that belong to elderly clients.
