WHO WE ARE
Allergies and hot spots and ear infections, oh my!
Following graduation from veterinary school at UC Davis in 2006, Dr. Laura Wilson completed a one-year internship and three-year private practice residency before becoming a Board-Certified Veterinary Dermatologist in 2010. Dr. Wilson is passionate about all aspects of dermatology, especially getting to know her clients and working with them to provide the best short- and long-term plans to remedy their pets' dermatologic diseases. She loves the challenge of tailoring treatment plans that the client and pet will tolerate, including her own environmentally allergic dogs Talulah and Harry!

Dixie grew up in metro Atlanta, GA. and started working with pets in 2010. She has worked in Veterinary Medicine since moving to Chattanooga in 2016, both at a busy General Practice and an Emergency / multispecialty clinic. The complex nature of skin and ear cases and continued interactions with patients and clients are some of the reasons Dixie enjoys the Dermatology Specialty. Dixie lives with her husband, James, and their pets, Bumi and Piwwow. In her free time, Dixie enjoys painting, crafting, costuming, hiking and playing board games with her husband.
Shelby moved to Chattanooga from Philadelphia in 2019 after her graduation from the Vet Tech Institute in Pittsburgh, PA. She has dabbled in “a little bit of everything” when it comes to Veterinary Medicine – General Practice, Emergency / multispecialty clinic for small animals and Equine Medicine. Shelby has always found Dermatology cases to be satisfying and when she learned Animal Dermatology Specialists – Chattanooga was looking for a licensed technician, it just felt right! Shelby lives with her husband, Devon, and their three dogs (Boo, Molly and Oakley) as well as 4 cats (Jetta, Raptor, Coconut and Agatha). In her free time, you will most likely find Shelby at the barn, hanging out with her horse, Yoshi, or hanging out with her crew of pets at home.
“Find a job you enjoy doing and you will never have to work a day in your life.” -Mark Twain. Following high school graduation in 2004, Lyndsey began working as a veterinary technician for a Specialty and Emergency Veterinary hospital in Tampa, FL. During her 18-year tenure, she obtained her Veterinary Technician Certification and has helped pets and their families as an Emergency / ICU / Critical Care Technician (which is when Dr. Wilson first met Lyndsey in 2006!). Following an equine accident in 2016, Lyndsey transitioned to working as a Patient Care Coordinator for the Dermatology, Neurology and Ophthalmology Departments and again worked with Dr. Wilson. Lyndsey enjoys relaxing on her mini farm with her husband, 3 boys and Teil, her Belgian Malinois. She unapologetically admits she has too many chickens to count, including a “house chicken” named Trooper.
