Dr. Chelsie came to My Best Friend Veterinary Center in February 2020. Originally from Springfield, IL she began her pre-veterinary studies in Kentucky at Murray State University. While pursuing her undergraduate degree she had many opportunities for exotic experience including volunteering at Riddle’s Elephant Sanctuary in Quitman, AR and briefly studying Marine Biology abroad in Belize. After obtaining her Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from Murray State she was accepted into University of Missouri’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2015. Graduating in spring of 2019, Chelsie began working in a small animal private practice.

Dr. Chelsie’s wonderful family consists of her husband and three dogs; Millie, Murray and Max. Her three dogs are spoiled rotten and she would love to show you a picture of them. Chelsie is always up for an adventure. She has been skydiving four times and hopes to get her skydiving license someday.

She loves a good “dad” joke.

“I have an appointment with the doggy doctor. How that dog became a doctor, I don’t know.”
