Dr. Jacob “Jake” Martin grew up in a small town called Monticello in Kentucky. He and his wife, Morgan, landed in New Orleans in September of 2015 after his wife was accepted as General Surgeon Resident.
Originally an Archaeology and Paleontology scholar, Dr. Martin switch gears and embraced his love of animals. He decided to go to veterinary school to follow his passion and one day return to his hometown desperately in need of a fulltime vet.
Dr. Martin and his wife have two rescued dogs, Dozer and Liz, and three rescued cats, Rupert, Two Socks, and Gunju. He enjoys Cross Fit, caving, fishing, and spending time with his family.
