Dr. Tiffany Chappell joins our VCA team from Portland, Oregon to be closer to family and live life back in the sun.  She was raised in Athens, Georgia where she attended undergrad and received a bachelor's degree in biology and minor in animal science.  To continue her education in bulldog country she attended the veterinary school at the University of Georgia and graduated in 2008.  Upon completion of school she did an internship at an emergency referral hospital in Tampa, Florida and then headed west for Oregon.  While in Portland, Dr. Chappell enjoyed life with her husband Bobby, daughter Luna and her four legged children, Izzy the terrier mix and Tsunami the lazy cat.  In her spare time she enjoys kayaking, travel, DIY arts and craft, reading, and relaxing with her family.  Dr. Chappell is excited to provide quality care for the pet community of Wilmington and looks forward to meeting you!

"I chose this career to be an advocate for the pets we all know and love.  It is fulfulling to know I can help people care for their pets and keep them healthy and happy for a long time.  I think my favorite thing about being a veterinarian though is the family that is created between the clients, the pets and the staff."
