Meghan Swayman, DVM
Dr. Swayman's Bio
Veterinary medicine has always been a part of Dr. Swayman’s life. Both her grandfather and father were veterinarians. She has fond memories of “helping” at her dad’s clinic and riding in his truck to numerous farm-calls as a child.
After studying engineering at Purdue University for undergrad, she attended MSU (following in her father’s footsteps) and graduated in 2008 with her DVM. She has been practicing small animal medicine since.
Dr. Swayman started at EVC in February of 2020. She loves connecting with clients and helping ensure a long, happy life with their beloved pets. Meeting a new puppy or kitten with their new family and getting to follow that pet and their family as they grow and bond together through the years is priceless!
At home she has 1 dog, Rue who is a 6 year old Rat Terrier who she and her family adopted about 3 years ago. Rue is sweet and snuggly and likes to bark at anything that moves – in true terrier fashion!
Outside of work, she loves spending time with her 2 kids, Ella (11) and Ryan (9) and her husband, Keith. They play lots of games together, travel for soccer and flag football games and enjoy time at their family cottage in Northern Michigan. She is an avid reader, loves to run and hike, and is working on improving her French!
