Dr. Hammond’s inspiration for a medical career stems from her family. Her father is a physician and her grandfather is a veterinarian who helped to found the Virginia/ Maryland School of Veterinary Medicine. Her love of horses started at a young age when she started riding and showing horses. She worked as a veterinary assistant in high school and through college, where she attended the University of Virginia. During vet school, she rode with equine practitioners on their calls, worked as a large animal technician in the school’s hospital and was an active member of the Student Chapter of Equine Practitioners.
Dr. Hammond grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia and while her family is still there, she and her husband Trey have settled in the area and have a son named Liam. She also has a miniature Australian Shepherd named Zipper, a black cat named Ivy, and a miniature pony name Bean. She enjoys outdoor activities such as riding, hiking, skiing and trips to the beach.
