Dr. Melanie Phillips was born and raised in Arkansas and graduated from Mississippi State College of Veterinary Medicine. She moved to Washington with her husband shortly after graduation and lives in Mount Vernon. Dr. Phillips family consists of a very supportive and loving husband – Stephen, 2 corgi’s Radar and Doppler, 2 cats Murphy and Emma and 3 horses Reynolds, Frodo and Luna. In her spare time she loves to ride horses – both English and western disciplines, snow ski, rock climb and snowmobile with her husband. She has 4 years of experience as a small animal veterinarian but has dreamed of the opportunity to be a mixed animal veterinary and is incredibly excited to be joining the Arlington Veterinary Hospital family to start fulfilling that dream! While she loves all her patients, corgis are definitely her favorite! She loves meeting new clients and developing bonds with both owners and pets!
