When not practicing veterinary medicine, Dr. VanderPol and her husband travel to Arizona and spend time at their second home. Mexican food and sipping margaritas are the two main items on their agenda while soaking up the Arizona sun. Dr. VanderPol has two sons, which keep her quite busy. When they are not keeping her too busy, she enjoys trail running, kick boxing, biking.
