Dr. Smith grew up in Bryan/College Station and went to Texas A&M for undergrad. She never expected to become a veterinarian and started undergrad in engineering. Halfway through school, she changed her major to Biomedical Sciences. After joining the veterinary team on a mission trip to Arizona with her church, she made the life changing decision to become a veterinarian and has never looked back! Following graduation, Dr. Smith hoped to work at a clinic near her home and family. She wanted to work at Boonville as soon as she visited the clinic because of its fun and friendly atmosphere!

In her free time, Dr. Smith enjoys quilting, reading, and spending time with her husband Dylan. She and her Australian Shepherd, Brazos (Brazie), regularly attend agility and obedience practice and they may join a competition for fun in the future.
