Dr. Tammy knew she wanted to be a veterinarian most of her life. She grew up on an island with a dog and kept a horse on the mainland. She began her veterinary medical career as a kennel assistant followed by a veterinary assistant. This experience just fanned her desire to understand medicine more so she graduated from Michigan State University in 1988 as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. After working at several veterinary hospitals gaining valuable experience, Dr Tammy decided to purchase Orchard View Veterinary Clinic in 1995 with the goal of providing the best possible care for pets and their families.
