Chris was born in Virginia, but raised in Alpharetta, GA. He attended boarding school at Christchurch School in Virginia, and after graduating in 2001, moved to south Florida to pursue a career as a chef. In 2007, Chris returned to Alpharetta and started working at a local veterinary clinic. It was here that he discovered his love for animal care and veterinary medicine. Chris recently married his wife, Alissa (aka Dr. Stephens), who is also in the veterinary field. They got married in May 2015 on Tybee Island, with their dog Stitch, by their side on the alter. Chris is currently in school to obtain a Bachelor's degree in Healthcare Administration. He and his wife have 4 rescue dogs, Stitch, a lab mix, Captain Jack and Virginia, shepherd mixes, and Madison, a pit bull mix. In his spare time Chris enjoys cooking, traveling, and spending time with his wife on their days off.
Why he does this: "After I found myself in the veterinary business I felt like I was always changing lives at the end of the day . Knowing that I am not only able to help animals but also bring a sense of relief to their owners with the excellent care I am able to provide their pets, it brings a sense of completion to me. I can no longer see myself in any other business."
