We are happy to announce Dr. Emily Rhoades will be joining us throughout next year to help with appointment availability during times when we have veterinarians on leave for continuing education, personal or medical reasons.
Dr. Rhoades is a North Carolina native, originally from Greensboro. She attended Guilford College for her undergraduate degree in Biology and Health Sciences. Dr. Rhoades continued her veterinary education earning a degree in Veterinary Medicine at the University of Tennessee. Dr. Rhoades was Active Duty in the U.S. Army for five years after veterinary school. Besides working with families and patients, she enjoys multiple aspects of veterinary medicine but her special interests include critical care, internal medicine, and soft-tissue surgery. Dr. Rhoades continues to work as a relief veterinarian in Western North Carolina. We are happy to have her join our team.
When Dr. Rhoades is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, including her husband, daughter and feline friend, Ava. Ava is a great travel companion. She traveled with Dr. Rhoades from Tennessee to Texas, South Carolina, Cuba, Hawaii and then back to North Carolina. Ava loves to lounge under the Christmas tree, sleep in the bed and bird watching. Dr. Rhoades also enjoys running, cooking, and reading.
