Once a gymnast, collegiate pole vaulter and soccer player, Dr. Goodwin’s love of animals eventually conquered that of athletics when she took an apprenticeship assisting Dr. Bonar at the Cleveland Zoo while an undergraduate student at Case Western Reserve University. After double majoring in biology and chemistry, Dr. Goodwin was admitted to The Ohio State University where she earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Jacob WassermanDVM
Dr. Wasserman grew up near Cincinnati, Ohio and attended Xavier University for his undergraduate education. After a brief stint as an accounting major, he ultimately decided to change course and pursue natural sciences, graduating from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2013.
Dr. Wasserman has worked in and around the Cincinnati area since graduation, but is excited about the opportunity to move south and join the team at Main Street Veterinary Hospital. Dr. Wasserman’s wife, Allie, has family in Cornelius, and the opportunity to move closer to family was difficult to pass up. Dr. Wasserman spends his free time with his wife, three children (Charlie, Henry and Ella) and pup (Lily). He also has two lovely cats (Meejy and Terra) that enjoy ignoring him.
Professionally, Dr. Wasserman has special interest in surgery and dentistry. Personally, he enjoys music (both listening and playing) and various home improvement projects.
