Dr. Minnella is a 2009 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine. Prior to attending veterinary school, Dr. Minnella received her Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology and Chemistry from Roger Williams University in Rhode Island. While in vet school, Dr. Minnella contemplated marine mammal medicine but realized her true calling in equine medicine. She enjoyed assisting in the Ultrasound and Cardiology Unit at New Bolton Center and participated in the Rural Area Veterinary Services.
Upon completion of her training at Penn, Dr. Minnella completed an equine medicine and surgery internship at Reid and Associates in Wellington, Florida. A lifelong resident of Chester County and rider in the local hunter/jumper show circuit, Dr. Minnella returned home following her internship and started practicing with Equine Medical and Surgical Associates of West Chester. This position enabled Dr. Minnella to transition into her own private ambulatory practice in the fall of 2012 when she opened Winley Equine Veterinary Services.
Dr. Minnella and the associates at UEA have had the opportunity to work closely on a number of cases. She enjoys cases that challenge her skills in sport’s medicine, internal medicine and general practice. Through our interactions, we have come to realize that Dr. Minnella would be a great addition to our team! Our practice philosophies and medical management skills are very similar and will ensure a seamless transition for Dr. Minnella into the practice.
