Dr. Carrie Edgerton
Dr. Edgerton grew up in eastern North Carolina in the town of New Bern. She has wanted to be a veterinarian for as long as she can remember and began her dream as a volunteer at a local vet hospital. With her family’s support she completed her undergraduate degree at North Carolina State University and was well on her way to vet school.
While attending NC State’s veterinary school, she became heavily involved with the Wild Turtle Rescue Team which helped develop her interest and passion for exotic pet medicine. As a senior veterinary student, Dr Edgerton spent several weeks at Griffin Exotics during an externship rotation and enjoyed her experience so much that she joined the GAEVH team in June 2007. She became a full time associate in January 2010 and enjoys working at such a diverse practice.
Dr. Edgerton shares her home with Sprinkles, her cat, Jasper, her Red-Footed Tortoise, and her two bearded dragons, Sydney and Stitch.
