Dr. Carey spent most of her childhood in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. She attended undergraduate school at Clemson University in South Carolina and veterinary school at the University of Florida. Graduating in 2007, she was the student ambassador of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and helped to run the student driven spay/neuter clinic, Operation Catnip. To this day, surgery is still her passion. Dr. Carey worked for Banfield in the Charlotte market for one and a half years before chartering the Blakeney location in 2008. She is very happy spending time at home with her two children. Her veterinary interests include soft tissue surgery, endocrinology and primary care. Despite loving cats, she recently acquired severe adult onset asthma towards cats and can no longer offer veterinary services to her feline patients.
