Dr. Becky Schoenberg is a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. While a student there, she spent three years volunteering on the Pet Loss Support Hotline, also pursuing independent study in the human-animal bond and grief support.

Upon graduation she returned to her beloved home of Massachusetts, where she has been practicing small animal medicine since 2001. Over that time, she has come to understand even more deeply the crucial role that animal companions play in people’s lives, the importance of caring for those companions as they age, and the importance of the veterinarian in helping both pets and people through challenging transitions. Autumn Care & Crossings is the ultimate result of her dedication to those ideals.

Dr. Schoenberg is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Massachusetts Veterinary Medical Association, the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care, and the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management.  She is proud to be a member of the  first ever graduating class of Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Veterinarians, a distinction she shares with fewer than 60 other veterinarians worldwide.

She shares her home and her life with her husband, a pair of slightly eccentric cats, and a rather cranky ball python. When not caring for her patients and clients, she enjoys reading, dance classes, fiber arts, and spending time outdoors.
