Charlie Pye

Dr Charlie Pye grew up outside of London, England and moved to Prince Edward Island, which she now calls home, at the age of eighteen. There she attended the University of Prince Edward Island where she completed a three-year bachelor of science undergraduate degree majoring in Biology. She went on to receive her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the Atlantic Veterinary College, PEI.

She then moved to Saskatoon to complete a one-year rotating internship at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. Following her internship, she travelled back across the country for a Dermatology Residency at the Ontario Veterinary College. While at OVC, she also completed her Doctorate of Veterinary Science degree specializing in Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacterial biofilms. After completing her residency she began working at Guelph Veterinary Speciality Hospital in Guelph, Ontario. During her time in Guelph she continued to travel back to PEI to teach the veterinary students at the Atlantic Veterinary College a few times a year.

As of May 2018 she joined the team at the Atlantic Veterinary College as an assistant professor, and established the first ever Dermatology service at AVC. She has lectured all over North America and has contributed to multiple journals and textbooks. She is also currently on the executive committee of the Canadian Academy of Veterinary Dermatology.

In her spare time she enjoys camping, crafting and spending time with her partner Andrew, their two kids Sydney and Logan, their 3 cats and 2 terriers (both of which have allergies)!
