Chartia graduated from Grand Valley State University with a Bachelors in Business Administration in Accounting. After graduation, she interned at Brookfield Zoo for the summer where she discovered her love for nature and animals. Shortly after her time with the Zoo, she began working for a corporate veterinary group as a Client Service Coordinator and Lead Reception Staff. In 2019, she received her MBA at Western Governors University and is currently studying to become a Certified Veterinary Practice Manager.
In her spare time, she loves spending time with her dog, Lovey, and her family. She and Lovey take long walks along the beach. Tia is also working on a personal photography portfolio focused on nature, pets, and people.
Chartia is ecstatic to be a part of the Urban Veterinary Associates team.
