Dr. Eliza Lischin graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. She completed her clinical year at Washington State University where, by serendipity, she met her future husband, Moses Humphreys. Dr. Lischin began her veterinary career in New York City in a small animal private practice. She later worked for 2 years on her family’s thoroughbred horse farm in upstate New York. Since her passions remained with feline medicine and surgery she returned to the city to work with small animals.
Dr. Humphreys received his veterinary degree from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2005, after completing his clinical rotations at Auburn University School of Veterinary Medicine. Following graduation, he completed a rotating small animal internship at a busy emergency and referral center in Brooklyn, New York. In 2010, Dr. Lischin and her husband Dr. Humphreys, also a Ross graduate, opened the doors of their first practice One Love Animal Hospital in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. In 2013, they would open another One Love Animal Hospital in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. A year later they acquired Yorkville Animal Hospital on the Upper East side of Manhattan.
Dr. Humphreys served on the AVMA Educational Commission for Foreign Veterinary Graduates (ECFVG) Committee for six years. He also was a founding member of the RUSVM Alumni Association and became acting president of the association in 2017. In a quest for a simpler life, they have now decided to come “home” to St. Kitts to spend more time with their children Marlin 9, Leilani 6 and “live de life.” They are becoming well known faces on the island so be sure to say hello when you see them.
