Kimberly Carter, DVM
I was born in St. Petersburg, Florida, and I have been close to the water all my life. From the time I was 4 years old, I knew in my heart that I wanted to take care of animals. I was blessed with parents that encouraged me to follow my dreams, and in 1991, I graduated from the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine. I truly believe that I received an exceptional education there, and was instilled with a desire to always keep an open mind, and that you NEVER stop learning! I came to Fernandina Beach after graduation, and fell in love…..my affinity for the ocean, and my desire to live in a small community where I could make a difference, all came together. I opened Nassau Veterinary Hospital in 1997 and was committed to making our hospital a place for the animals, not the “people”. I wanted a medical facility that was outstandingly clean, and extremely comfortable. My patients must “feel” the love that happens inside our walls…..
I would like to tell you that I truly enjoy my job and have special interests in Internal Medicine, Orthopedic Surgery, and Preventative Health Care. I find my job to be challenging and rewarding. I strive to make my patient’s lives and the interaction they have with their owners as rewarding, healthy and happy as possible. I value each and every family that visits us and realize that each situation is unique and is to be cherished and respected.
I am married to Brian Scott, and have 2 furry children. We share our home with 2 dogs, "Maddie" and "Liza". Both dogs were rescues….Liza from our local humane society after she came to me to repair her broken leg. Maddie was an abuse case that I took in…
I enjoy running, scuba diving, international travel and just being with Brian and the dogs, no matter what we are doing!!!
Thank you for placing your trust in us at Nassau Veterinary Hospital….we promise to do our best to make your pet’s experience the best they have ever had!!!
