Dr. Jami Van Hemel - Veterinarian
Dr. Jami Van Hemel is a graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine.
She is originally from Florida, but fell in love with the mountains during her time in Tennessee and decided to make Western North Carolina home. Jami originally went to school for engineering, but during her time at University of Florida, she decided to switch paths to medicine for a more hands-on and fulfilling career. While working as a veterinary technician in University of Florida’s shelter medicine department, she developed a passion for shelter animals and surgery. She is also interested in preventative care, clinical pathology, and dermatology.
When not working, Jami spends as much time as possible being active— hiking with her two dogs Juno and Jolene, gardening, or fly fishing. On rainy days she enjoys cooking and water-coloring, or spending time with her three-legged cat Jose.
