Dr. Amy Brewbaker - Veterinarian
Dr. Brewbaker is a native North Carolinian from Wilmington, where she grew up in a family of medical professionals. She has always had a love of animals since a young girl.
Dr. Brewbaker did not take a direct path into veterinary medicine. After graduating from Rollins College in 2006, she worked in pharmaceutical research and software industries. The career turning point was while she was working as a volunteer at Wake County animal shelter. She had been a dedicated member of the rescue community for many years before this. She fostered and found homes for more than 40 homeless dogs and cats. Working with litters of puppies, helping nurse sick animals, and helping provide care to special needs and senior pets was the encouragement she needed to enter into the world of veterinary medicine to help families offer the best medical care for their pets. Having found her true passion, Dr. Brewbaker returned to school and earned her degree in veterinary medicine from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, completing her clinical year at the University of Florida.
Dr. Brewbaker is Fear Free Certified and has completed the Heroes for Healthy Pets Infectious Disease program. During veterinary school, she completed several unique externships in shelter medicine, integrative medicine, and community outreach. Other special interests include preventative care, cardiology, and dermatology. When not helping care for our four-legged friends, Amy enjoys yoga, hiking, kayaking, and watching movies with her senior rescue.
