Nicole M. Arms, V.M.D. grew up in North Coventry Township of Chester County with a love for all animals.  It was here that she obtained her first job in the veterinary field during high school as a kennel assistant at her local veterinary hospital.  She worked her way up to veterinary technician and raised her first bottle fed kitten, Zoe, who would be by her side for the next 15 years as she built her career as a veterinarian.

Dr. Arms obtained her undergraduate degree in Psychobiology from Arcadia University.  She was able to expand her animal experience with both a London Zoo Internship and a conservation trip to Africa.  Dr. Arms graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, School of Veterinary Medicine in 2005.

After graduation Dr. Arms joined a busy emergency, referral and general practice.  With more than 10 years of experience, Dr. Arms is excited to come back home and join the GVH team where she looks forward to building strong doctor-patient-client bonds with her patients and their families.
