Dr. Mandy Willis, Whit Willis (husband), and Hagan Willis (son)
Middle TN Vet Service, family-owned and operated in Morrison, TN, since 2008. We treat every customer like they are a part of our family.
Dr. Willis grew up on a farm in west central Kentucky and graduated from the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. She practiced in rural, mixed animal practices for 3 years after graduation. In 2008 she started a large animal ambulatory practice in the Middle TN area, serving Warren and surrounding counties. The haul-in facility became operational in 2011 and became fully staffed in October of 2012. Dr. Willis' passion is working with farm animals and with the people that own them. She thoroughly promotes rural veterinary medicine and the rural way of life. She invests in the future of rural veterinary medicine by hosting many student externs throughout the year and speaks at local pre-veterinary and high school vet science classes about rural veterinary medicine. In past years she served on the boards of the Tennessee Veterinary Medical Association, Farm Animal Care Coalition of Tennessee, and the Academy for Rural Veterinarians. In 2015, Dr. Willis and her husband, a local Hillsboro farmer, welcomed a baby boy to their family. There is a good chance you will see his smiling face around the clinic.
