President, Chief Medical Officer, Veterinarian
Growing up in Whiteville, North Carolina, Dr. J. Linwood Jernigan’s home was within walking distance of a veterinary practice. In the seventh grade, Dr. Jernigan started working there. This early exposure to the veterinary profession convinced him that the animal care field was the only choice for him!
Upon entering college, Dr. Tess Jordan knew she wanted to get into the medical field and help patients, but she struggled to find her exact calling. It wasn’t until she started working at a local no-kill shelter that the pieces fell into place—Dr. Jordan realized veterinary medicine was where she was meant to be!
Throughout his veterinary career, Dr. Tim Queeney has been exposed to various fields of animal healthcare, including wildlife conservation, animal rescue, laboratory work, and agriculture. He settled on small-animal medicine for one reason: to develop personal relationships with the clients who entrust him with their pets’ care!
During her high school years, Dr. Courtney Pierce had the opportunity to volunteer with a local animal shelter. The shelter was underfunded and the adoption rate was rather low—the experience opened Dr. Pierce’s eyes to the significant plight of homeless and neglected pets. She was so moved that she decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine! Now, she’s able to care for animals daily as an Associate Veterinarian.
A native of Greensboro, North Carolina, Dr. Catherine Smith grew up adoring animals and all that they had to offer. It wasn’t long before one thing became clear: she wouldn’t be satisfied unless she was working with pets on a regular basis! Dr. Smith hasn’t looked back since—now, she gets to fuel her passion while helping others as an Associate Veterinarian with The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt.
