Dr. Ober’s Departure


June 1, 2015

Dear Clients –

I wish to inform you that after much consideration, Dr. Christiana Ober will be leaving the practice and moving to England this summer. Dr. Ober has been with the practice since 2007 and in that time has been to the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games and two World Championships as the team veterinarian for Canadian Eventing.

Since giving birth to her son, Luca, Dr. Ober has raised him mainly on her own while her husband, also a veterinarian, practices in England. During this time she has continued practicing veterinary medicine in both Virginia and Florida. She is incredibly devoted to our clients, and has an amazing work ethic that has never changed. The move to England will make it possible for her and her husband to be together with their son, and as a family business we understand the importance of this decision. Dr. Ober has been incredibly passionate about the care of our clients and we appreciate all of her hard work and efforts and wish her well on this new adventure.

We also want to commend Dr. Lisa Casinella and Dr. Jill Copenhagen on the excellent work they’ve been doing since they joined the team at Peak Performance Equine Services. Dr. Copenhagen, in particular, did a great job in the past year taking care of many of Dr. Ober’s clients while she was learning to juggle motherhood, and we are sure that the business will be in excellent hands moving forward. Should you need to reach out to either of them, their cell phone numbers are: 434-960-9482 (Dr. Casinella) and 908-552-5031 (Dr. Copenhagen). Dr. Casinella will continue to be based out of Ocala and Dr. Copenhagen will continue servicing Virginia in the summer and Ocala in the winter. We are very fortunate to have such an outstanding client base and look forward to continuing to provide you with outstanding service. Should you need to reach out to me, please direct any emails to Adam Furlong, Project Manager, at afurlong@bwfurlong.com, or by phone at (908)-439-2821×220.

We hope you will join us in wishing the very best to Dr. Ober, her son, and her husband, as they embark on this new adventure together!
