Marissa Torre, DVM

Internal Medicine Intern

Internal Medicine

I am originally from Long Island, New York. I have always cherished animals from when I was young, but did not consider becoming a veterinarian until my senior year in high school. I went to Binghamton University in upstate New York for undergraduate studies, where I completed countless volunteer hours with horses, alpacas, exotic, and small animals. I attended University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine for veterinary school where I met my fiancé and adopted multiple pets! We have a French bulldog named Frankie, a boxer named Helix, a ball python named Hyperion, and a three-legged leopard Gecko named Milton!

During veterinary school, I developed a strong interest in small animal Internal Medicine. After graduation, I completed a rotating internship at Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners in Tampa, Florida before coming to Friendship to start my Internal Medicine internship. I am excited to continue learning and growing with the Friendship team and hope to pursue a residency in Internal Medicine after completion.

I love to spend my free time outdoors. I especially love water activities like kayaking, swimming, and boating! I love to cook, read, travel, and spend time with my family.

Clinical Areas of Interest: Small Animal Internal Medicine with special interest in minimally invasive procedures, interventional radiology, and hemodialysis.
