Dr. Liff’s veterinary journey, in her own words

“I decided I wanted to be a vet since I was six years old, and that never waivered throughout my many years of school. I wanted to work with horses until the end of my first semester in vet school—but when I decided I wanted a more urban lifestyle, I realized horses were not conducive to that.  

I am now in general practice and do a bit of everything, but I particularly enjoy dermatology and internal medicine. I see about 5,000 pets annually.

I first became involved with Lemonade in January of 2020, leading up to the launch of the pet insurance product. In those early days I worked with several teams to help create the best policy options and insurance journey for pet parents, based on the real experiences they have at the vet.  

Nowadays I contribute to the vision of making the pet insurance product even more awesome—like optimizing content, improving product features, and reviewing insurance claims.

On the personal side, I live with an adopted Labradoodle, Kyrie. She moved to New York from Charleston in a seersucker bowtie in June of 2017. 

Kyrie is a true diva, and thinks she is 100% Poodle. She uses her paws to tap on things she wants—like the counter for treats. When I see patients, she sits in my desk chair, giving the illusion that she’s working at the computer. As if she doesn’t ‘work’ hard enough, she’s starting therapy work with a dog trainer at a local prison.”
