An associate veterinarian at our clinic since March 2016, Dr. Ashley Homm and her husband Daniel are expecting their second child in early August.
While Dr. Homm is away, three temporary relief veterinarians—Dr. Stephany Griggers, Dr. Lori Fruit and Dr. Patti Neyenhaus—will work alongside Dr. Brady and Dr. Goodman to care for clinic patients. We also welcome back Dr. Emily Anderson, who has worked with us as an associate before and now will work one day a week at the clinic through Spring 2018.
Dr. Griggers, who worked at the clinic last year during Dr. Brady’s maternity leave, is a Tulane alumna who completed her DVM degree at Louisiana State in 1995. She’s been a relief veterinarian for 18 of her 22 years in practice.
Dr. Fruit is a classmate of Dr. Brady’s from the Purdue University’s School of Veterinary Medicine Class of 2005. Since graduation, she made various cities home before returning to her true home here in the Midwest. She currently lives in Louisville with her husband of five years and their many four-legged family members including three dogs (Matilda, Addison and Bullet), five cats (Fester, Mortimer, Seamus, Spooky and Mamma), and her turtle (Myrtle). Dr. Fruit has a passion for outstanding patient care and strives to minimize any fear for her patients in their visits with her.
Dr. Neyenhaus is a 2004 graduate of Purdue’s School of Veterinary Medicine. She worked in small animal general practice in Columbus, Indiana, for three and a half years, followed by six years of service at an emergency referral clinic in Indianapolis. She has done relief work for the past four years. Dr. Neyenhaus is married with three children, a golden-doodle named Hagrid and a cat named Baymax. She has worked with exotics and is trained in acupuncture. After-hours, she enjoys hiking and camping, reading and gardening.
We welcome these four doctors to our practice and look forward to working with them in the coming months. Dr. Homm plans to return from her maternity leave in November and will then be working three days a week.
