I am originally a Georgia girl, St. Simons Island and Gainesville. I got my first pony when I was eight and always had dogs and cats throughout my childhood. Always dedicated to my animals, I worked two jobs in high school to pay for my horse and one in college for the same reason. I never lived in a dorm room because I always had to have my dog and cat living with me. My dog and I were inseparable throughout college: hiking, fishing and camping every weekend. She really got me through vet school!
I graduated from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in 1996. Upon graduation, I moved back home to Brunswick, Georgia where I met and married my husband, Shannon, and started working with Dr. Sybil Davis. In 1999, Shannon and I moved up to South Carolina so that Sybil and I could start our dream practice. We have never looked back! My dad always said, “You spend as much time working as being at home, so you better like your job.” I really took that to heart. My clients and patients are like family to me. I enjoy not only the medicine and surgery, but the updates and stories of my patients and their families.
I still ride my horses every chance I get, barrel racing in National Barrel Horse Association (NBHA) shows around South Carolina and Georgia. Shannon is an inshore fishing captain and owner of Carolina Fishing Adventures where he takes people fishing for redfish, cobia and whatever else is biting. Our son, Austin, is a student at Thomas Heyward Academy. He loves skateboarding and geocaching as well as reading Harry Potter books.
