Dr. Whitney Hall DVMDr. Whitney Keller, Owner

Whitney grew up in the suburbs of Houston and travelled to the University of Kentucky for undergraduate studies in Biology and Piano Performance.

She hopes to use VWC as a tool to increase the quality of life for both her patients and her staff. Through Veterinary Wellness Center, she is able to provide low stress handling, wellness plans, flexible staff scheduling, and staff benefits within a framework of accessible and affordable care.

In her free time, Whitney enjoys reading sci fi/fantasy novels, gardening, and spending time outdoors with her husband Brad, son Max, and eleven-year-old Brittany Spaniel Roscoe.
