Dr. Anna Simmons has been an animal advocate starting at a young age. She knew she was destined to partake in animal welfare and care once she discovered her love for animals.
Dr. Simmons received her B.S. in Psychology with a minor in Biology at The University of Texas at Austin. While she was a student, she began working in local vet clinic and animal rescues to full-fill her dreams. She started out as a vet tech in East Dallas for about two years before attending Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, thereafter went to the University of Wisconsin for a year in clinics. Shortly after, Dr. Anna moved back to Texas to start practicing veterinarian medicine while becoming a founder of EMBRACE Veterinary Wellness. Dr. Anna has a daughter named Anaiya and is married to her high school sweetheart living in the Dallas area. They all share their love equally to their three dogs Ivy, Nala and Tyli and their cat Pepper Saltzman.
