Dr. Johana Cenera DVM | Mid-Atlantic Veterinary Hospital
Dr. Cenera grew up in York, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia, PA with a major in biology and minor in chemistry in 2008. She then completed a Master of Public Health degree with a specialization in Veterinary Public Health at The Ohio State University in 2011. Her studies included courses on zoonotic diseases (those that pass between animals and humans), foodborne illnesses, herd health programs and bioterrorism. Dr. Cenera enjoyed Ohio so much she stayed to complete her DVM degree at Ohio State’s College of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 2015.
After graduation, she worked in a mixed animal practice for seven years and has also provided relief coverage for an urgent care practice for the past three years, both in Frederick, Maryland. In 2018, she became a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner after completing a program through the University of Tennessee. Dr. Cenera is excited to join Heart + Paw’s Mid-Atlantic Veterinary Hospital practice with interests in feline medicine, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, rehabilitation, dentistry and pain management. In her spare time, she enjoys baking, running, traveling and relaxing at the end of the day with a good book. She is currently owned by one cat, Olive.
