Dr. Carlson's long-standing professional interests include infectious disease, critical care medicine, and toxicology.

Since coming to Northeast Wisconsin, Dr. Carlson has developed a passion for sled dog medicine. An active member of the ISDVMA (International Sled Dog Veterinary Medical Association), Dr. Carlson has volunteered her professional services at several mid- to long- distance dog sled races in northern Michigan and Minnesota. She recently attended a seminar on sled dog medicine in Anchorage, AK, and will be working at a large race in the Yukon Territory of Canada later this month. She hopes to work one of the long-distance marathon races in Alaska such as the Iditarod or Yukon Quest in the next several years.

A lifetime resident of the Midwest, Dr. Carlson enjoys the four seasons and wide variety of outdoor activities available in this part of the country. During her free time she enjoys running, hiking, kayaking, camping, fishing, and skijoring with her dog in the winter. Dr. Carlson shares her house with her skijoring partner Abby, a 5 year old Husky/German shepherd cross and three cats, Russel, Spic and Span.
