Dr. Meghan Ellis

Dr. Meghan is the founder and owner of Family Veterinary Mobile Clinic.  She graduated from NC State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008 with a Concentration in Zoological Medicine.  She worked as a small animal and exotics associate at a busy low cost high volume practice in Fayetteville for 4 years, then started her own practice, Family Veterinary Hospital, in Sanford.  

Hospital ownership was stressful and Dr. Meghan didn't feel like she was doing anyone any favors trying to be an expert in preventive care, infectious diseases, internal medicine, emergency medicine, endocrinology, cardiology, soft tissue surgery, dentistry, behavior medicine, urology and nephrology, anesthesiology, etc.  In fact, the only thing she felt like she was an expert in was burnout.  

So Dr. Meghan closed Family Veterinary Hospital and started Family Veterinary Mobile Clinic instead.  Being able to focus on preventive care, chronic disease management, and behavior medicine in a relationship-based practice is just what the doctor ordered.  

Dr. Meghan lives in downtown Sanford with her husband, Dave, and 4 dogs and a cat.  Favorite activities are grilling and chilling, gardening, and anything on, in, around, or under water.

I’ve had a passion for animals and knew I wanted to work with them since I was 4 years old. I have worked in veterinary medicine since high school. After working at PetSmart, I’ve been a veterinary assistant/technician for about 18 years. I moved to NC from NJ in 2010 to pursue my career and goal of tech school. I graduated from Gaston College Vet Med program in 2013 and have been a registered vet tech since 2014.  I have a dog named Bear and we enjoy hiking & camping. I enjoy volunteering for a church organization and visiting NC State Parks.

Chelsea has been with Family Veterinary Mobile Clinic since the very beginning!
