Dr. Anne Harrell

DR. ANNE HARRELL,
Associate Veterinarian

Originally from Ohio, Dr. Anne Harrell grew up in a family surrounded by pets and wildlife, and grew a strong connection to marine life while spending summers in Florida. In fact, these summers sparked her desire to attend the University of North Carolina where she earned a degree in Marine Biology after which she worked for a marine mammal and sea turtle rehabilitation center. This work led her back to Ohio to attend veterinary school at the Ohio State University where she graduated in 2008. Since graduation, Dr. Harrell has practiced in Bend, OR and several cities in California before relocating to Nevada County to be closer to family. Outside of work, she spends time with her adventure-loving husband and their pets and can frequently be found hiking, climbing, trail running, camping and snowboarding.
