She completed an equine internship at Park Equine Hospital in Lexington, KY in 2016, after which Dr. Wimms worked for Woodside Equine Clinic in Virginia as an associate. Following that, she joined Woodbine Animal Clinic in Pace, FL, and then worked as a small animal relief veterinarian (in many corners of the country due to her husband’s military career!).
