Christina (Cricket) Russillo ~ DVM & Sr. Associate
Dr. Russillo (Known to many as “Cricket”) graduated from the Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. Following graduation she completed a Large Animal Medicine and Surgery internship at Texas A&M and realized her desire was to work on elite sport horses. After 13 years of practice at Fairfield Equine Associates in Newtown CT focusing on high level show jumping and dressage horses she joined Virginia Equine Imaging in June of 2015. Dr. Russillo met and worked alongside Dr. Allen at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games as the primary after-hours treat veterinarian and since joining Virginia Equine Imaging has become a valued team member in our practice.
Dr. Russillo relocates to Florida every winter to support our clients and patients in Wellington and the surrounding areas. She is a member of the International Society for Equine Locomotor Pathology, and hopes to attain Certification next year. We are proud to announce that in 2017 Dr. Russillo got appointed to be the new USA Dressage Team Veterinarian.
In addition to her busy schedule of sports medicine, Cricket enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and daughter. She has competed through 3rd Level in Dressage and loves to play tennis. She and her family are excited to be a part of the VEI team and love living in Northern Virginia.
