As a kid growing up in Connecticut, Jennifer DiTrapani-Gimbal loved hiking through the woods with her family to the edge of the horse farm that bordered their property. She also fondly remembers learning to ride horses in New Zealand. These events demonstrated the power of the human-animal bond to a young Dr. DiTrapani-Gimbal, and her interest in veterinary medicine was ignited.
Dr. DiTrapani-Gimbal received her Bachelor’s in Animal Science from the University of Florida. In 2001, she began at the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. After attending Virginia Tech for her clinical studies, she started working in Rochester, NY before moving to Port St. Lucie. In 2009, with her husband Dr. Nathan Gimbal, she purchased Animal Planet and Morningside Animal Hospital, where she is now the Owner.
In 2013 they purchased Ocean Breeze Animal Hospital and in 2015 purchased Hobe Sound Veterinary Clinic.
As a veterinarian, Dr. DiTrapani-Gimbal likes treating geriatrics because she truly believes that age is not a disease and older patients shouldn’t be written off without hope. She has a special place in her heart for animals with no one to advocate for them, like feral and homeless cats. She also enjoys treating small mammals like rats, guinea pigs, and rabbits.
In her spare time, Dr. DiTrapani-Gimbal enjoys running, spinning, reading, yoga, and organic/natural living.
