About Our Speaker:

Dr. Oakley is a veterinarian with Wellington Equine Sports Medicine in Wellington, Florida.  She is a Diplomat, ACVSMR a Diplomat, ABVP (Equine) and Certified Member of ISELP.  

Dr. Oakley is a board certified specialist in sports medicine and rehabilitation, and in equine practice. Dr. Oakley is one of the few veterinarians in this country certified by the International Society of Equine Locomotor Pathology (ISELP). Her practice focuses on lameness and imaging in performance horses and she has a special interest and extensive training in the use of ultrasound for the diagnosis and rehabilitation of sport horse injuries. She feels that a complete and accurate diagnosis of the whole horse is the most effective tool in the rehabilitation of an injury, allowing the horse to return to work as soon as possible.

Dr. Oakley has lectured nationally and internationally on equine musculoskeletal anatomy and ultrasound and shares her advanced proficiency in musculoskeletal ultrasound as an instructor at veterinary ultrasound courses, including ISELP. She is also a courtesy adjunct professor in the Practice Based Equine Clerkship at the University of Florida. Dr. Oakley currently practices in Orlando, Ocala, and Wellington Florida.

A classical dressage rider, Dr. Oakley is particularly interested in the use of basic dressage exercises as part of physical therapy and rehabilitation protocols. Dr. Oakley employs rehabilitation protocols and modalities into practice such as Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES), LASER and therapeutic ultrasound to maintain soundness and increase the horse’s comfort and performance.
