Our Doctors

 

Dr. Bransford and Max

Dr. Grace Bransford:

Dr. Bransford is a 1998 graduate of the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.  She practices both canine and feline medicine and surgery and has a special interest in small animal oncology (cancer medicine).  She spent 5 post-graduate years at the UC Davis Veterinary Medical School gaining additional knowledge and skills volunteering on the Oncology service working under well-known veterinary oncologists Dr. Bruce Madewell and Dr. Cheryl London.  She also augments her knowledge base by taking occasional coursework at UCSF School of Medicine.

Grace won numerous scholarships at the veterinary school and was also class co-president as well as student representative to the California Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) Board of Governors.  She has continued being involved in organized veterinary medicine at both the state and national levels.  She was a member of the blue ribbon American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) 20/20 Vision Commission, and the AVMA's Task Force on Governance and Membership Participation.  She has served on a variety of AVMA and CVMA councils and committees on topics ranging from the human-animal bond to pet owner communications during the past seventeen years.

In 2008, Dr. Bransford was the only private practice veterinarian to be named to the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine's Admission Committee helping to select the class of 2012.  Working with the Admissions team, she reviewed applications and interviewed candidates to help select the final 131 students out of over 1200 applicants.
 

Prior to becoming a veterinarian, Dr. Bransford worked in advertising for some of the top advertising agencies in the country including J. Walter Thompson, Chiat/Day/Mojo and Foote, Cone & Belding.  She made her career change after 10 years managing accounts in the travel and packaged goods categories.

Dr. Bransford has lived almost her entire life in Marin County with some minor stints in San Francisco, Honolulu and Dallas.  She enjoys swimming, cycling and horseback riding.  She is an avid competitor in the local hunter/jumper show circuits.  She has a Black Lab named Max, an Arab/Quarter Horse gelding named Johnny, and her new pet, a Giant Flemish Rabbit named Bunz.  She earned her undergraduate degree from Stanford University.

Dr. Musman and Amber

Dr. Molly Musman:

Dr. Molly Musman grew up in West Marin.  She earned her Bachelor's degree from UC Santa Cruz (Go Slugs!), and majored in both English Literature and Biology.  While in college, she started working as a veterinary assistant, and then technician.  She went on to attend veterinary school at St. George's University in Grenada, West Indies, and what an education that was!  Not only in veterinary medicine, but also in cultural awareness and sensitivity, obtained by living in another country and being the foreigner for a change.  She did all of her clinical training at the University of Minnesota School of Veterinary Medicine, and after graduation, went on to complete an Internship in Emergency and Critical Care Medicine at a private specialty hospital in the Bay Area.  Dr. Musman's interests include internal and geriatric medicine, and surgery.  Dr. Musman lives in San Anselmo with her husband, two little boys, and animals too, of course.  In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, gardening, and hiking.

Dr. Rabbie with Muddy and BB.

 Dr. Daniela Rabbie:

Dr. Daniela Rabbie has been practicing veterinary medicine in Marin County since she graduated from the University of California at Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1997 (one year before Dr. Bransford!).  Her special interests are internal medicine, dermatology, neurology and dentistry.  She enjoys building long-lasting relationships with pets and their people, and has loved being a "family doctor."

Dr. Rabbie was born in Israel, but grew up in the Bay Area.  She lives in San Rafael with her family, which includes two rescue cats (Muddy and B.B.) and a rescue Standard Poodle (Art Garfunkel). When she's not working, she enjoys walking the dog in the beautiful places of Marin County, making chocolate pudding (and other desserts), and laughing with Jeff and their daughters.
