Dr. Brian Mann comes to us from Northern Kentucky. He started his veterinary journey caring for the pets in his high school Biology department, then working as a kennel assistant at his local veterinary clinic. Soon he was working as a veterinary assistant at local vet offices and the local veterinary ER. After working through college, he was still sure of his path to become a Veterinarian. He was accepted into the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine right after graduating with a BA in Biology.
While at Auburn University he met his wife Nicole during the first week of classes when they rushed the professional Fraternity, Omega Tau Sigma, and they have not been apart since. They both remain active Alumnus of OTS to this day. After graduating together, they married and moved to Peachtree City. The family unit grew with the addition of a son in 2007 and a daughter in 2009. They always have a full complement of pets so that they are never without animal friends at home or work.
Dr. Mann has been with Braelinn Village since 2003, and became Medical Director in 2015. Professionally his focus has shifted more now to leadership and growing the team. He still has a passion for diagnostic ultrasound, surgery, ophthalmology, and cutting-edge emerging tech and medicine.
When not at the clinic, he enjoys assistant coaching his son's Lacrosse team, technology (computers, wiring, programming, etc.), modifying foam blasters for competitive play, and is a total CrossFit addict! Dr. Mann believes that one needs to balance the mental and physical challenges in life, in order to keep the mind and body strong together.
