"Dr. Fran” Tyler is an Atlanta native and is a 1984 Woodward Academy graduate. She attended the University of Georgia (UGA) prior to attending Tuskegee University's School of Veterinary Medicine. She was accepted to Tuskegee after only 3 years of undergraduate studies at UGA. After graduating from Tuskegee in 1991, she completed a small animal internship at UGA, and then returned to Atlanta where she's been practicing ever since. She loves dermatology, internal medicine, and exotic animal medicine. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, listening to jazz, and taking long walks with her family.
Dr. Tyler has been honored as one of Atlanta's "Best Vets” in Atlanta magazine. She was also selected as a FIVE STAR Veterinarian in that same publication - an honor bestowed to only 7% of the veterinarians in the metro Atlanta area.
Dr. Tyler married her classmate, Dr. Will Draper, in September, 1993. They have 4 children: son David (9/97), and daughters Tyler (5/99), Gabrielle (11/01), and Olivia (7/03). They also have 4 dogs (Max, Frank, Louie, and Satchmo) and 2 cats (Zig-Zag, and Charlemagne).
