Dr. Houser graduated from the University of Minnesota with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. She then completed a post-graduate internship in North Carolina at Carolina Veterinary Specialists. Dr. Houser practiced emergency medicine for a few years before working in general practice across Texas, including Galveston.
