After a year-long small-animal internship with Georgia Veterinary Specialists, Dr. Rainwater joined our team in November of 2008. A graduate of the zoological track at UC Davis and a California native, she has a colorful history of globetrotting animal experience, including leading research groups studying black howler monkeys in Belize, working with ringtailed lemurs in Madagascar, and studying elephants in Namibia. She is a Category II USDA-APHIS accredited veterinarian. She attends continuing education seminars several times a year to keep up with the latest developments in avian and exotic medicine. She and her husband welcomed their new baby into the world in August 2013 and they couldn’t be more proud. When not in the clinic she enjoys stand-up paddleboarding and napping on the porch with her cats Dexter and Fireplace.
