Dr. Smith grew up in Easton Pennsylvania (go Larry Holmes, for those old enough to remember) and graduated with a Business Degree from Penn State University. After a career in Information Technology that took him to Colorado, he followed his passion and moved to Missouri to attend Veterinary School. He built, operated, and sold a veterinary hospital in Asheville before moving to Raleigh. He lives near Lake Johnson with his wife Amy, their mini Brady Bunch family (all teenagers); Isabella, Ashley, Ashton, and Audrey, and a “Genetic Soup SPCA Special” dog named Penny. In his spare time, he enjoys the beach and mountains. And you may see him exploring the back roads of Carolina on his motorcycle.
