Dr. Rak has always had a passion for exploring the intricacies of internal medicine, including areas such as gastroenterology, nephro-urology, and fungal disease, endocrinology, and pharmacology. Her published residency research investigates the gastrointestinal effects of prednisone as determined by endoscopic changes and bloodwork abnormalities, and, upon presenting these findings at a national conference (ACVIM), she was given an award for resident research. Further, she has also co-authored publications in cardiology, endocrinology, and pharmacology.

A native of Poland, Dr. Rak is a fluent Polish speaker. She is also trained in animal disaster response and certified in animal ice rescue operations. A true animal lover, Dr. Rak shares her life with a spunky calico cat named Tosia, and enjoys working on Augmentative Interspecies Communication with her (look up Bunny the talking dog on YouTube!). Some of her favorite activities include hiking, equestrian sports, painting, and reading.
