Dr. Friedman opened My Vet Animal Hospital in May of 2006 after 14 dedicated years as an associate at another practice in Chicago. Since opening, we have grown into a thriving practice and continue to grow our professional team and services.


Dr. Friedman graduated from The University of Florida School of Veterinary Medicine in 1991 and obtained her undergraduate degree from Boston College.  Dr. Friedman is a member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners as well as a Fear Free Certified Professional. She was born in Tampa, Florida so she is definitely partial to the warmer weather months and enjoys being out in the sun or on the water with her family in Florida as much as possible.


She is raising her daughter, Cici, and her four legged family member, Evie! In her spare time you will find her enjoying long walks, running and the other love of her life – sushi!




Originally from Kansas and growing up in Wisconsin, Dr.Fry studied biology at UW-Stevens Point before obtaining his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from  Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in the Caribbean.

Dr. Fry has been practicing in the Chicago area since 2015 providing  high-quality care and exceptional service to our clients and their pets. Dr. Fry thoroughly enjoys teaching clients about their pets so they can better understand them and develop an even greater bond between them.  




Maggie joined the team at My Vet after working at various Chicago hospitals. She has been in the animal care industry for over 14 years, managing pet retail and boarding facilities before changing her focus to veterinary care in 2012. In her spare time, she creates handmade greeting cards, soaps, body scrubs, and candles.  



Meredith joined the My Vet team after moving to Chicago from Philadelphia. She previously studied Environmental Science and Art History and is currently a human radiology technician.  She has a kitty named Olive and a Great Pyrenees mix named Abner. When she's not caring for her human patients or our clients' pets when she is here at My Vet, she is caring for and nourishing her numerous houseplants!


Rebecca is our Treatment Manager. She has an adorable rescue mix named Charlie that loves to come to work with her. Rebecca is very talented with surgeries, dental procedures, and making sure our treatment area is run professionally and safely according to AAHA standards.


Jeanna joined the My Vet team in 2015. She runs the show when it comes to surgeries and training new technicians in treatment. She and her husband have a sweet french bulldog named Odin. When Jeanna isn't here with us, you can find her at a craft fair where she is showing off her talent in creating decorative pins.



Cynthia joined the My Vet team after she completed her externship with us. She is a Certified Veterinary Assistant and has a background in public relations and marketing. Cynthia owns 3 rescued pets; Zoofie, the sweetest golden chihuahua mix, Milo, an energetic terrier mix, and Micho, the singing cat.
