A native of British Columbia, Dr. Anderson grew up actively involved with horses as an eventing competitor, international competition groom, barn manager and racetrack exercise rider prior to obtaining her DVM from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (University of Saskatchewan) in 1986.

Following graduation, she entered private practice in South Hamilton, Massachusetts, under United States Equestrian Team veterinarian Dr. A. Martin Simensen.
