After a year of gutting homes in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina she returned to UC Davis. During vet school she tracked Large Animal, and in 2011 she graduated with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. Her first employment was an internship during the foaling season at a Thoroughbred breeding farm in New Zealand. After returning to the States she moved north to Alaska where she continued to practice equine medicine and gained an appreciation of the California sun. Eventually, she moved to the Auburn area and has been loving practicing in the foothills with wonderful clients and patients. In early 2018, she has added chiropractic services to her many talents

Current hobbies involve raising her two young daughters. Pre-child hobbies included running. hiking, back packing, singing, and of course, horse back riding. She has competed in upper level Dressage and goes trail riding any chance she has.

Beau is the reason Dr. Anne went to Vet school. He is an elderly Holsteiner/TB mix that Dr. Anne broke and trained to Fourth Level. His extreme parrot mouth inspired her love of equine dentistry. Her other pets are Coco, a Rhodesian Ridegeback and running partner extraordinaire, and a cat named Maya. She also has chickens and Guinea Hens.

Dr. Allison Williard

Dr. Allison completed her Bachelors degree in Animal Science from the University of Georgia in 2012, then stayed to complete her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) in 2016. She completed a rotating equine medicine/surgery/ambulatory internship at Tennessee Equine Hospital in Thompsons Station, TN in 2017. She is very excited to start her career in the Auburn area, having never lived outside of the southeast until now!

Dr. Allison enjoys spending time outside in whatever way possible: running, hiking, biking, camping- you name it! She ran her first ever half marathon this past April in downtown Nashville and plans to continue training for more in the future. She also enjoys riding whenever she can. Prior to veterinary school, she rode hunter/jumpers in Georgia, but currently enjoys a more laid-back life of trail riding. She is also very passionate about Georgia football (two of her dogs have UGA-themed names) and can be found watching football almost every Saturday during the fall.

Dr. Allison has three dogs– Sanford and Walker, two male corgi mixes, and Fiona, a black lab/Bernese Mountain dog mix. These three stooges keep life interesting and make great hiking buddies! However, Sanford is the only one patient enough to endure a long run. She also has a yearling paint filly named Arrow that she adopted during her internship
