We have a new Veterinarian! Welcome Dr. Mallory Smith. Here is what she has to say about herself.
I was born and raised in the greater Tampa Bay area and spent my vacations growing up in the mountains! I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of South Florida and earned my veterinary degree from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine after some post-graduate work at Clemson University. My passion for animal health started while spending a summer rehabilitating injured and sick endangered sea turtles and then working with dogs and cats as a veterinary nurse for a few years. My favorite aspects of veterinary medicine are preventative care, dentistry, internal medicine, and simply nurturing the human-animal bond, but love absolutely everything and love to learn new things! My husband and I moved to the mountains to be closer to family, for the seasons, and the culture. We have two older dogs named Ox and Panda, and one tabby cat…named Cat. I consider myself a little bit of a foodie, love cooking and trying new recipes, and appreciate a good dark chocolate. On the weekends, my husband and I love to spend our time outdoors, soaking up sunshine, whether it be camping, hiking, or eating a good meal on a patio with friends and family.
Dr. Smith begins on Monday June 10.
