Heather O'Brien


Hello! Thank you for considering Animal Medical Clinic of Loudon County as your partner in caring for your 4-legged family members. My name is Heather O'Brien and I have been the owner and veterinarian at AMC for the past 20 years. Practicing veterinary medicine is a joy, and for me it is living out a childhood dream. I am a 1989 graduate of University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. The human/animal bond is remarkable. I have seen pets get autistic children to speak, give the elderly a will to live, and help those recovering from a serious illness a reason to get better. I am especially interested in preventative health care to help our pets live the longest and healthiest lives possible. My own 4-legged family consists of five dogs, seven horses, and one cat. The rest of my family consists of one husband, Jan Hahn, a retired family physician, and three wonderful daughters, Micah (29 yrs.), Avi (24 yrs.), and Mara (20 yrs.). We look forward to seeing your pets at Animal Medical Clinic and pampering them as if they were our own!

Hi, my name is Azaria. I have lived in TN most of my life, but I am originally from Kentucky. I have worked at AMC since April 2010 and I love every minute of it! I have no children so my animals are my kids. I have 3 dogs, Chili, Patches, and Diesel(who I adopted from the clinic). I also have 3 cats, Lucy, Whiskers, and B-cat. I look forward to meeting all of your furry friends!

Brittany Davis

Veterinary Assistant

Hi! I'm Brittany and I'm a lifelong resident of Loudon County. I graduated from MTSU with a degree in television; after I got out I found I wasn't really into the whole TV thing. So after months of soul searching I found that I wanted to work with animals. I have been a veterinary assistant for four years now. I enjoy being around animals and hope my career continues. I have a husband, Clint, two dogs, Oscar a pug and Ella a black and tan coon hound, and a cat named Dublin. I look forward to meeting everyone and especially your pets.

I was born and raised in TN. I have always had a love for animals especially pigs. I have been in the veterinary field either as a receptionist, vet assistant or Office Manager for almost 11 years. I am currently the Client Service Director and enjoy everything about what I do. In my spare time I love to play with my kids, scrapbook, read and most anything outdoors.

Pat Kent

Customer Care Representative

My family and I moved here from Florida recently to be able to enjoy the change of seasons. I've always loved animals and have had pets all my life, so being around animals is comforting to me. For most of my life I've worked in medical offices as a medical receptionist, only switching to veterinary medicine about 4 months ago when I accepted the position here at AMC. I love reading, walking, shopping and watching TV with my family.
