Elaina was born and raised in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in small animal science from Delaware Valley University. Prior to attending veterinary college, Elaina worked as a veterinary technician at an animal shelter in Pennsylvania. The shelter provided care for underserved populations and animals. This inspired her to become a veterinarian and continues to be a passion for her today!
In 2016, Elaina made the big move across the country to attend Midwestern University in Arizona for veterinary college! Dr. Volpe received her Doctorate of veterinary medicine from Midwestern in 2020 and graduated as a member of Phi Zeta (the veterinary honor society).
During veterinary college, Dr. Volpe married her husband, James. They share their home with their 2 year old energetic Boston terrier, Yoshi. Outside of work, Elaina enjoys reading books of all kinds, watching anything on Bravo TV, hiking, trying new restaurants with her husband and spending time with friends and family.
