Steve and Teresa Wills and became a partner of the hospital in 2001. She earned her DVM from Auburn University and has since attended numerous continuing education meetings.

One of her favorite aspects of being a veterinarian is caring for her patients, diagnosing and treating illnesses, and interacting with her clients. She especially loves working with puppies and dealing with the challenging cases involved. Over the years, she has welcomed the opportunities she’s had to make a difference in the lives of pets by improving their quality of life, giving them more quality years with their owners.

Dr. Wolfe shares her home with her husband, Buck; and their children, Katie, Kara, and Haley.

She shares her life with her dog, Maggie, who is a beagle mix and in her spare time she enjoys reading for both work and leisure, being outdoors and spending time with family and friends.
