Dr. Belinda is, unfortunately, no stranger to grief. Her father died during her 2nd year in Veterinary School, and more recently she lost two grandparents and her father in law over a six month period. It is through her own experiences with grief and loss that she is not afraid to be vulnerable with families at this difficult time.
