Judi Gaddy-Filipiak
Hospital Manager
Judi relocated to VCA Appalachian from Northern Illinois where she spent 30+ years working in veterinary medicine. She has had the opportunity to work in many specialized areas with surgery and ophthalmology being her favorites. She also had several chances to volunteer her time and work with the veterinarians at both Lincoln Park and Brookfield Zoos. Prior to her move to Georgia, Judi was the Inventory and Equipment Manager at VCA Arboretum View Emergency and Specialty Hospital.

Judi currently shares her home with her Catahoula mixes, Ellie Mae and Jethro, her Corgis, Kensington, Wills and Harry, and cats Maggie, Lucie, and Sallie. In her free time, she enjoys exploring nature, cooking, reading, and starting craft projects that will probably never get completely finished!
