About Dr. Yau

Dr. Yau grew up in New Jersey and then went to the University of Delaware for college. She continued south for vet school where she attended North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Despite her parents having a no pet household, she knew she had an interest in animals and volunteered at a local animal shelter when she was 14. Her desire to care for animals led to her then helping the shelter’s medical team, forming her first experience in veterinary medicine. She then continued on as a pre-vet major in college.

She was first drawn to veterinary medicine by her love of animals, and continues to be inspired by the amazing bond between pets and their owners. She enjoys the wide variety of cases that she sees in small animal practice, and has particular interests in dermatology and internal medicine.

After just fostering a few animals in high school, she adopted her first pets Nugget and Naomi, two cat siblings last year. When they’re not keeping her busy with their mischievous antics, she also spends time hiking and exploring different restaurants in the Triangle with her fiance Ty.
