Kristin Edds was born in Overton County, Tennessee and has enjoyed small town life from a young age. As a Vol For Life, she graduated from the University of Tennessee with her Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science, fulfilled a United States Army Reserve contract as a Military Police Sergeant, and then completed her Doctorate Degree from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine.
She and her husband have been blessed with two wild and wonderful children (which you will likely see running around the office on any given afternoon). They all live in White County, together with their small herd of dogs and cats: a bird dog that hunts nothing but the couch, 1 old retriever mix that acts like a nanny, 1 obese cat that steals food, 1 barn cat that is the greatest hunter that’s ever lived, and 2 lively goats.
Her professional interests include working dogs (military, police, and agriculture), geriatric/quality of life care, rescue/trauma cases, and advanced soft tissue wound healing. Outside of work, Dr. Edds’s most important hobby is being a mom, and she can always be found toting a kid or two wherever she goes. She also enjoys target shooting (if you want your appointment to go over your scheduled time, ask about her favorite handgun), trying not to cry during football season, hobby farming (or rather digging their property out of the weeds so they can have their own livestock one day), being outside in general with the family, and reading a good book.
