Dr. Powell was born and grew up in the Hampton Roads area, only leaving to attend Virginia Tech for both undergraduate and veterinary school. While she absolutely loved Blacksburg, Coastal Virginia has always been home. She works as a small animal general practitioner and is an owner of Animal Medical Center.
As a general practitioner, she notes it has been heartbreaking to hear stories of how many of her clients have struggled to find care for their pets after hours and on weekends. In founding Ally Urgent Veterinary Care with Dr. Brookshire, she is excited to provide support for her veterinary colleagues and the region’s many pet owners.
“There is no worse feeling than seeing the pet you love in discomfort. It makes you feel helpless!” said Dr. Powell. “We started Ally with the hope that we could offer some relief to local veterinarians, while providing accessible care to pet owners in our area.”
Dr. Powell’s favorite parts of practice include surgery, dentistry, but above all, the relationships she gets to form with clients. When she isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her husband/high school sweetheart, Travis, and their wild toddler.
