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 began working at a veterinary clinic as a kennel assistant in-between classes, and worked her way up to becoming a veterinary assistant. She also met her husband, Keith, at Auburn University. Shortly after graduation in 2013 (Bachelors in Animal Science) she moved to Huntsville, AL with him.

While working at a small animal general practice in Huntsville, her manager recommended that she advance her career and obtain her license in Veterinary Nursing. Elena graduated from Jefferson State Community College and obtained her license in 2016. She worked in general practice before she now works at Huntsville Veterinary Specialists and Emergency as the lead Internal Medicine LVT.

She spends most of her free time riding/showing horses, playing with her dogs, 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 human baby, Michael.
