Dr. Tierney Whalen is a proud Gator and attended University of Florida for both her undergraduate and veterinary medicine degrees. She knew she wanted to be a veterinarian by age 4 when her mom informed her she was unlikely to become the next Crocodile Hunter. She grew up riding horses and playing competitive soccer, all the while dreaming about healing and advocating for animals. Since graduating from veterinary school, she has found her niche in urgent and emergent care. She spends her free time laughing with her son Teddy, her husband Josh, and their fur babies ChevyDawg (Lab mix) and Mr.Man (exotic Siamese “Roof” Cat). She is honored to be a member of the Flagler Animal Hospital team.
