Veterinary Assistant

David

David followed his passion for animals and turned it into a career. We are happy that his journey led him to us. He is a wonderful addition to our team.

David joined the Mountain Ridge Animal Hospital family in November of 2021. David is our only male staff member on the Veterinary Team (he is brave to put up with all of us ladies) and he is a joy to work with! Ever since David was a kid he loved being around animals. Whether it was dogs, cats, gerbils, rabbits, ducks, turtles, frogs, or any insect he could get his hands on, he just wanted to be around wildlife and pets. This led him to knowing early on in his life that he was made to work with animals someday. David attended Auburn University for Marine Biology from 2008-2012. He is from Birmingham, Alabama. He is a proud Dog & Cat Dad! His dog's name is Marley, he is half blonde lab and half golden retriever. His cat is named Gandalf, she is mostly Russian Blue. David lights up when he talks about his fur kids!
