LaDon Wallis, DVM relocated to Charleston several years after she graduated from the University of Georgia, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004. She wanted to become a veterinarian since the age of five, and remembers interviewing her family vet when she was ten years of age. Her profession affords her the ability to educate and influence people and care for animals that many consider family. She also has a passion to preserve and protect the environment and Lowcountry habitats. She considers Charleston one of the most beautiful places and takes every opportunity to enjoy the outdoors with her husband, whether it be hiking, paddling, or photography.

She was recently appointed to the State of South Carolina Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners to represent the First Congressional District. She is excited to further her profession in this capacity, as well as serve on the Board of Directors for Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary.
