Dr. De Lacey grew up in Houston, Texas before leaving his beloved home state for Macalester College in St. Paul, MN. He completed his undergraduate degree in neuroscience and philosophy before working in veterinary medicine in Boston, Oakland, Phoenix, and now Austin. Along the way he completed a DVM at the University of California, Davis, and a small animal internship in Phoenix, AZ. Nick has a special interest in emergency medicine, neurology, animal behavior, and has a soft spot for urban wildlife. When he is not being a veterinarian Nick loves road biking, cooking new things, trying to grow plants, and listening to podcasts. Nick lives with two cats and his partner, who is also a veterinarian in Austin.
