Christa Gordon-Worrell hails from the cotton fields of Timmonsville, SC where she spent her childhood operating a stuffed-animal hospital in her grandmother’s guest bedroom. She graduated from Tulane University as a chemical engineer (her Momma made her do it) but eventually left technical sales to pursue veterinary medicine at Texas A&M University. There, she developed a fascination with ultrasound imaging as a diagnostic modality. After receiving her DVM degree in 1995, she practiced small animal medicine and continued to hone her ultrasound skills through additional training. She believes that no matter whether your pets are covered in fur, scales, or feathers, they bring joy and enrich the human experience. She’s proud to support the human-animal bond by lending ultrasound support to the HPH team.
Beyond medicine, Christa touts creative outlets as the key to sanity in a busy world. She writes stories, teaches yoga, and hunts morel mushrooms in the spring. She and her husband are servants to a grumpy, old, barn cat, and have recently adopted a severely-adorable, chocolate standard poodle.
