Dr. Tammy Anderson, DVM, Associate
Dr. Tammy Anderson was born in St. Paul, AB., in 1981 and spent the first 5 years of her life on her parent's farm. At the young age of 3, Tammy told her father that she was going to be a "horsie doctor", and she spent a great deal of her childhood helping him take care of the animals on the family farm. Her arrow was pointed, and it's never wavered from that direction. At the age of 5 she moved to PEI and spent the next 22 years there.
Although she loved PEI, Tammy always felt that Alberta was her home. During her University years she tried to spend every summer in Alberta and one fateful summer (2006), Tammy met Jordan, whom she would marry in 2010.
Tammy graduated from the Atlantic Veterinary College in 2008, and quickly moved back to Alberta. She accepted a veterinary position at the Edmonton Veterinarian's Emergency Clinic and during her 3 1/2 years working there she cared for many cats and dogs. After working the stressful hours of emergency, Tammy decided that she wanted to work in a clinic where she could provide high-quality preventative medicine to pets and their families. She soon became a welcome addition to the BVC team.
Tammy and Jordan decided to settle in Lottie Lake where they currently live with their two adorable children, Madalyne & Maddox.
