Born and raised in Texas, Dr. Yu lived in several different cities in the Lone Star State before venturing out to Vegas. She went to grade school in Plano, Texas, then attended college at the University of Houston. While there, her interest in veterinary medicine began after realizing she could have a career that combines both her love for animals and passion for helping people. She then went on to attend and graduate from veterinary school at Texas A&M University. Dr. Yu has since developed a particular interest in internal medicine and preventative medicine. When not at work, Dr. Yu is likely either trying out a new restaurant, hanging out with her cat, watching youtube videos, or napping. Dr. Yu is a first-generation Chinese American and the first veterinarian in her family!
