Dr. Kahl was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She has a BS in Animal Sciences and is a 1994 graduate of the Kansas State College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduating from K-State, she spent 5 years practicing in the Chicago area, and in 1999, moved to the Tampa area where she practiced as a relief Veterinarian working in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco Counties.

Dr. Kahl quickly learned the importance of the relationship between veterinarian and client. To better serve pets and their owners, Dr. Kahl began her own practice in 2008. She believes strongly in making a personal connection with each client to better understand the needs of her patients. At Van Dyke, she established a culture that appreciates and respects the input of each client and carefully communicates the best care plan for you and your pet. We challenge you to find a more caring vet that is more invested in each and every pet’s health.

When not at the clinic, Dr. Kahl enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and cheering on the Tampa Bay Lightning.
