First Celebrity Crush
Dr. Danielle Wyatt was born in Atlanta, Georgia and moved to her dream location, Washington, in June of 2021 (after living in the flat state of Florida for way too long!). When she is not hanging upside down in her yoga trapeze, Dr. Wyatt spends her free time exploring/hiking the beautiful Evergreen state with her husband. She has one very petite tuxedo cat and a retired dermatology research beagle, and is obsessed with Golden Retrievers.
Veterinary medicine has always been a passion of Dr. Wyatt’s. In elementary school, she asked the librarian to provide her with a scanned copy of every book that she could find about veterinary medicine, including the encyclopedia. This was Dr. Wyatt’s first introduction to fanatically reading about veterinary medicine and this experience has led to a life-long pursuit of reading/writing scientific articles within the field of dermatology.
This passion was further developed during veterinary school where Dr. Wyatt decided to forgo “state schools” and was determined to study abroad to experience new cultures – she made the decision to live on an island in the middle of the West Indies and loved (almost) every second of it. During school, Dr. Wyatt quickly realized that all she really cared about was skin. The more scaly and gross, the better! Her final year at Auburn University solidified this interest, and Dr. Wyatt pursued research with the dermatology service at the University of Florida where she later attended and completed her dermatology residency.
Dr. Wyatt, alongside Dr. Danielle Tulloss, has recently purchased the Dermatology Clinic for Animals in Lacey, WA, after the untimely passing of Dr. Kimberly Coyner. Dr. Wyatt’s love for dermatology and passion for education drives her to ensure that Dr. Coyner’s legacy lives on by continuing research, striving to provide excellent patient care and bedside manner, and practicing the highest quality medicine.
While skin disease if largely uncurable, Dr. Wyatt’s ultimate goal is to provide a better quality of life for her patients and clients. Dr. Wyatt is excited to extend her services and education to other veterinarians and hopes to begin teaching veterinary students again in the near future.
