Dr. Richard Joyce

My name is Dr. Richard Joyce, ERVC’s newest veterinarian. I attended the University of Florida where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology in 2019 and received my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from St. George’s University in 2024. I completed three years of my education in the beautiful country of Grenada and attended Louisiana State University for my last year of clinical rotations. I have always been passionate about veterinary medicine, but leading up to vet school I had every intention of pursuing research. During my time in vet school, I fell in love with surgery and collaborating with my clients to provide patient care. The opportunities within veterinary medicine are vast. I have been fortunate to partake in work with shelters, community outreach, and emergency services. I am excited to be joining the ERVC team and explore the beautiful state of Virginia.
