Dr. Greg Herbert

Growing up in Baltimore, Dr Herbert had 3 idols- Brooks Robinson, Jonny Unitas, and his father.  Since he couldn't play baseball or football Dr Herbert wisely chose to follow in the footsteps of his veterinarian father, one of Baltimore's original small animal practitioners.

Dr Herbert married his high school sweetheart Susi and together they have two grown sons and three granchildren.  When Dr Herbert isn't working or spending time with his family, he can be found in his workshop making wooden ship models or learning a new song on his guitar.  He and Susi enjoy travelling and hiking in new places together.
