VMD, Medical Director

Dr.Simpson was born in Philadelphia and raised in Northeastern Pennsylvania. After graduating from Pennsylvania State University she returned to Philadelphia to attend veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania where she graduated in 2005. Dr.Simpson joined the team at VCA Cat Hospital of Philadelphia in July 2005 and has been here ever since. Dr.Simpson and her boyfriend live in Southern New Jersey with their senior cat Mr.Miyagi and his two younger feline tormentors, Georgia and Hugo. In her free time she enjoys traveling, staying fit at Lithe Method, and trying to grow a green thumb (and some tomatoes) in her vegetable garden. When asked why she does what she does Dr. Simpson said "I chose to be a feline veterinarian because of the relationships I'm able to form with my patients and their families. Whether it's year after year or just one visit I love seeing the joy that cats bring to their families and knowing that I can be a part of that by promoting a long, healthy life for the cats."

Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Holly Peltz graduated with a Bachelor of Science from Temple University. After working in a nursing home as a recreational therapist, she went back to school and earned her veterinary degree from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, which is part of Virginia Tech. Prior to joining the Cat Hospital, she worked in private practice seeing both cats and dogs. Having worked at the Cat Hospital before veterinary school as a technician, she is very excited to re-join the team and provide medical care to the cats of Philadelphia.

While she enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, she has a particular interest in feline medicine. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Gabriel, also a veterinarian whom she met while in veterinary school and their 4 cats - Hunter, Ditto, Stella & Honey Pebbles and 1 very patient dog named Marty McFly. She also loves to visit her family in NY, cheer for the NY Giants, run, hike and explore her new neighborhood in Philadelphia.
