“I love being a veterinarian because of the people I work with on a daily basis – clients and team members. When everyone works together to help our beloved animal family members, amazing things can happen.
Seeing the joy of a puppy or kitten joining a family, seeing a cat or dog patient enjoy the prime of their lives in a loving home, and treasuring the bond a geriatric patient has with the ones who love them are all the things that make me want to do what I do.”
Dr. Chessie Green’s contributions to our animal hospital are diverse. Compassion and a gentle touch perfectly compliment 22 years of going above and beyond for her patients, clients, and various organizations that support both.
In 1996, after earning her DVM from NCSU, Dr. Green began her veterinary career right here at Falls Village Veterinary Hospital! She feels fortunate to have found her home here so early in her career and really enjoys the long-term relationships she’s been able to develop with her patients and their human families.
Now co-owner of our hospital, along with Dr. Suzy Brink, Dr. Green’s love for animals and medicine is as strong as ever. Her approach to our furry friends is one of calm and ease, making her a great choice in doctor to nervous pets who respond best to softness when here for their appointments. She’s completed dozens and dozens of additional Continuing Education courses over her career to stay cutting-edge and widely versed in various technical areas of veterinary medicine. But above all, Dr. Green just LOVES animals.
“I really enjoy working with my fellow veterinarians to help promote our profession. This is an amazing job that encompasses so many opportunities. In my time with the NCVMA, I enjoyed working with colleagues to ensure that animal health in NC was getting the support needed. Through the Friends of the NCVMA and the NCVMA, hundreds of thousands of dollars are donated to animal charities in NC, from rescues to shelters to emergency management as well as veterinary and veterinary technician scholarships. I am very proud that I have had a hand in making these things happen.”
Dr. Green is also very active in her church, participating in its Missions & Outreach Committee. She’s gone to Peru and Mexico on mission trips. As a music-lover, she will start in a bell choir this fall.
Dr. Green also volunteered with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Triangle from 2013-2016.
