Meet our Doctors

Julia Ortiz, DVM

Rotating Veterinarian

I was born and raised in Southeast Michigan. As the daughter of a veterinarian, I spent a lot of time in the vet clinic growing up. I then decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine myself. I stayed in Michigan to obtain my undergraduate degree in Clinical and Diagnostic Sciences. I then moved to Massachusetts to attend veterinary school at Tufts.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two dogs, cooking, and exploring new restaurants. I am excited to join the team at Friendship and live in DC!
