Valerie Partch, DVM

Valerie Summa Partch was born in Smithville, Missouri. She grew up in rural northern Missouri where her grandparents farmed and raised beef and dairy cattle. In the middle of 4th grade, her family returned to Smithville where she competed in multiple sports (volleyball, basketball, track & field, and softball), met her future husband, Martin, and graduated from high school. She attended University of Texas - Pan American for 2 years on a track scholarship competing primarily in high jump. She completed her Bachelors of Science in Mathematics minoring in Psychology at Missouri Western State University. After 7 years of employment as an analyst for Citigroup in North Kansas City, she decided to return to school to pursue becoming a veterinarian. She recently earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Missouri. Dr. Partch and her husband Martin have been married almost 12 years and recently added a baby girl, Raegan Lynn, to their family. She joins their beloved pets: Bailee & Emma (miniature dachshunds), Cooper (Beagle/Lab mix), Oliver & Alley (cats), Shiloh & Liberty (horses), and Dexter & Turk (pygmy goats). Dr. Partch is joining the Lee's Summit Animal Hospital team as a mixed-animal veterinarian.

Thank you so much for your kindness and compassion shown when, despite our best efforts, we had to say goodbye to "Noel"! Our hearts are broken but knowing she was always in the best medical hands possible throughout her 12+ years helps ease our pain!
