Ramona Simko DVM graduated from UC Davis Veterinary School in 1992 and entered mixed animal practice for two years in Northern California. She practiced western medicine in small animal private practice for 15 years all the while developing an avid interest in the healing powers of herbs and natural organic foods. This interest sent her to study Traditional Chinese Medicine with Dr Xie at the Chi Institute in Florida.

Dr Xie introduced America to Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine in the 1990’s. Dr Simko has been practicing Integrative Veterinary Medicine in Davis, California since 2006 and is a member of the Sacramento Valley Veterinary Medical Association, Veterinary Botanical Medical Association and the American Association of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.
