Jennie Yarborough, DVM, JD
HSVMA SOUTH CAROLINA STATE REPRESENTATIVE

Dr. Jennie Yarborough, pictured with one of her "foster failures," Gidget, became a veterinarian after deciding her mission in life was to help the animals of her home state--South Carolina.  Before graduating from the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Georgia, she worked as an attorney.  Dr. Yarborough combines her legal and veterinary backgrounds to improve the laws pertaining to and the care of South Carolina animals.  She also serves on the South Carolina Bar Animal Law Committee.

Dr. Yarborough has a husband, three awesome step-kids and a motley crew of five dogs, one of whom she picked up from the side of the road on the way to a farm call.  This dog was a skinny little Chihuahua--probably from a puppy mill--who, after her liver shunt was repaired, is now thriving as a fat, happy diva.
