“Dr. Will” grew up in Inglewood, California, and graduated from Morningside High School in 1984 before matriculating to Tuskegee University (4th generation) for both undergraduate and veterinary medical studies. He was accepted to veterinary school after only 3 years of undergraduate studies; and after receiving his DVM in 1991, he continued his training at North Rockville Veterinary Hospital in Rockville, Maryland before moving to Atlanta in 1992.

He loves music (big Dave Matthews Band fan), movies, painting with acrylics, and enjoying family activities. His favorite veterinary interests include dermatology, internal medicine, and surgery. He married his classmate, Dr. Françoise Tyler, 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, Louie, Frankie, and Etta James) and 2 cats (Zig-Zag and Charlemagne).

Dr. Will has served as the featured veterinarian on WebMD's web series, "Ask The Veterinarian”, and serves as a veterinary expert in WebMD magazine. He received the Purina ProPlan 2013 National "Veterinarian of the Year", and has been honored as one of Atlanta's "Best Vets" in Atlanta Magazine consistently since 2001, and was selected as a FIVE STAR veterinarian in that same publication- an honor bestowed to only 7% of the veterinarians in the metro Atlanta area.
