Dr. Sammons, a South Carolina native, decided at a very early age (three) she would become a veterinarian. Her passion for animals and desire to work as a veterinarian led her to an undergraduate degree at Emory University followed by a veterinary degree at the University of Georgia.
Dr. Sammons followed veterinary school with a 1 year specialty and ER internship in Nashville, TN. From there she moved to the Triangle area where she worked for 5 years at a 24 hour ER and specialty referral practice in the area. She then worked for Pet Poison Helpline full-time before going to a part-time position so she could return to ER medicine and join the Quail Corners Animal Hospital staff as an ER DVM. She is a member of the AVMA and VECCS.
Dr. Sammons shares her home with her husband John and several fur kids. In her spare time, enjoys cooking, kayaking, and traveling.
