Dr. Leah Donahue is originally from Harvest, AL near Huntsville. She completed her undergraduated studies in microbiology at Auburn University before attending Auburn University's College of Veterinary Medicine.
"I've wanted to be a vet since before I remember," she said. "I have always loved biology. Long talks with my grandfather, a college professor, probably fostered my love of science." She says she is particularly interested in radiology, anesthesia, client education and minor surgeries.
While she says it is hard to pick the most amazing thing about veterinary medicine, she says she really loves to use science to help educate people about their pets because "the science of medicine is really amazing." She says, "My favorite part is feeling like I've helped people and their animals."
Dr. Donahue lives in Anniston, but she had to leave her pet horse back home in Harvest, where her younger brother "is fond of having him around."
