Amanda began her veterinary career in 2001 as a receptionist, later becoming front office manager, at a small animal hospital in Clinton, TN. Seven years later, she moved to Knoxville and joined the AHAH team in September, 2008. Amanda is a born animal lover who knew very early on that she wanted to dedicate her life to their care and well-being. She and her husband, James, currently have 3 dogs (Becky, Jasper, & Parker), 3 cats (Toby, Olive,& Colin) and a pot-bellied pig (Sammie) in their care. Amanda enjoys nothing more than spending quality time at home with her family, a good book, and a giant cup of coffee.
