Park Equine Hospital would like to welcome another one of our new interns, Dr. Tanner Walls.
Originally, from Chillicothe, Ohio, Tanner Walls received her Bachelors of Science in Animal Science and Biology and an Associate of Arts in Western Equestrian Studies from the University of Findlay. She received her DVM from The Ohio State University in 2017.
Dr. Walls knew she wanted to become a veterinarian at an early age. She grew up showing horses and instantly fell in love with them and the industry.
Dr. Walls chose Park Equine Hospital because of the variety of cases and interests of the doctors, as well as the comfortable and welcoming environment of the clinic. Her favorite part of her job is seeing the variety of cases and seeing the improvement in the horse after working up, diagnosing, and treating the problem.
When Dr. Walls isn’t at the clinic, she enjoys reading, riding, hiking, and spending time with her family and dogs. ... See MoreSee Less
Park Equine Hospital would like to introduce one of our newest inerns, Dr. Rebecca Christel.
Originally from Long Island, New York, Dr. Rebecca Christel received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from High Point University in North Carolina, and her DVM from Ross University. Her clinical year was at Texas A&M University.
As a child, Dr. Christel tried saving every sick and stray animal she encountered. She knew she wanted to become a veterinarian while she was on a veterinary mission trip to Costa Rica and Nicaragua during her undergraduate years. Learning new skills and being able to use them to aid and better a community was just one of the many experiences that eventually led her to veterinary school.
Prior to graduation, Dr. Christel worked in ICU at a VCA Referral and emergency Animal Hospital in New York. She came to Kentucky for the vast horse population and culture. Dr. Christel said Park Equine Hospital was the right fit for her as the veterinarians and staff come together as a family to help each other out and every patient is taken care of as if it were their own horse. The relationship with the clients is truly special.
Dr. Christel’s favorite part about her job is that no two cases are exactly the same. Not only is there the chance to treat horses, but also to learn from each and every patient along the way.
Dr. Christel enjoys playing volleyball, hiking, and horseback riding when she’s not at the clinic. ... See MoreSee Less
