Linda Chalker, Associate Veterinarian

I was born and raised in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. I attended the University of Florida earning a bachelor's degree in Microbiology and then went on to earn my veterinary degree at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. I graduated in 1990 and then completed a small animal medicine and surgery internship at the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine from 1990 to 1991. I then began private practice at Rock Creek Animal Hospital in Cooper City (suburb of Ft. Lauderdale). I eventually became the Medical Director of VCA Rock Creek Animal Hospital for the previous 10 years prior to my move to Crawfordville. My family and I decided to move to Crawfordville for the small town atmosphere and to rediscover the Florida we remembered. I moved to Crawfordville in 2007 with my husband, William and my daughter Amanda. We currently own an Austalian Shepherd (mini) named Pepper and Nugget a CHAT alley cat.

My veterinary interests include internal medicine, dermatology and soft tissue surgery. I also love feline medicine. In my free time (what's that?) I enjoy reading novels, walking and spending time with my family.

"According to my mom, I wanted to be a veterinarian since I was about 7 years old and never waivered from that desire. Even after 23 years as a vet, I am never bored and I am always amazed at how animals heal and greatful that I have an ability to help make their lives a little better. "
