Monique Koll, DVM
Senior Clinician, Emergency Medicine
On The Job
A true story of perseverance, Dr. Monique Koll had an unexpected pause in her career after being partially paralyzed in an accident. A Louisiana native, she grew up raising ostriches and emus, certain she would be a veterinarian. After her first job, placing ultrasonic tags in fish to track their movement on the Missouri River, she entered vet school. She worked for a number of years in private practice, emergency medicine and research before her career came to a halt when she was hit by a car while riding a bike, leaving her with a broken neck. Four months later, she made national news when her friend pushed her in a wheelchair through an entire half marathon, then helped her walk across the finish line. Two years and a move to Texas later, she was at work again in primary care and emergency medicine. Dr. Koll’s clinical interests include wound healing and the use of multimodal therapeutics to help provide a patient the best quality of life.
