Elena Graves

Special guest

Elena’s love for veterinary medicine started at the age of 7 when she sat on a horse for the first time. She practically lived out at the horse barn, caring for and riding horses, until she started her freshman year at Auburn University in the Fall of 2008. During her college career, she became a kennel assistant at a small animal general practice and quickly worked her way up to becoming a veterinary assistant. While in Auburn, she also met her husband Keith. Shortly after graduating with a bachelor's degree in Animal Science, she relocated to Huntsville, AL.

Elena was working at a small animal general practice in Huntsville when her manager recommended that she advance her career and obtain her license in Veterinary Nursing. Elena went on to graduate from Jefferson State Community College and became a Licensed Veterinary Technician in 2016. She now works at Huntsville Veterinary Specialists and Emergency as the Lead Internal Medicine Nurse.

Her interests and passions include the Veterinary Nurse Initiative, Dentistry, Emergency and Critical Care, Anesthesia, and Internal Medicine. She spends most of her free time riding and showing horses, hiking with her dog, and traveling around the world with her family. She and her husband are the proud parents of Grizzly, a lab/pointer mix, Colonel, a chestnut thoroughbred, and a rambunctious human toddler named Michael.
