Dr. Myra Southwell

Associate Veterinarian

Animal care was a big part of Dr. Myra Southwell’s family life while growing up. She’s been caring for the earth’s creatures ever since she can remember! For Dr. Southwell, helping animals professionally as a veterinarian was simply a natural fit. She’s proud to now serve the pets and animal parents of the Charlotte area here at Hambright Animal Hospital.

Dr. Southwell is from Currituck County in the northernmost portion of North Carolina’s beautiful Outer Banks. After graduating from the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics in 2005, she studied biochemistry at North Carolina State University, working in an immunogenetics research laboratory as an assistant during her studies. Dr. Southwell graduated as valedictorian of her class in 2009, then continued on to North Carolina State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine to earn her Doctorate.

Around the hospital, Dr. Southwell enjoys surgerydentistry, and feline medicine. She’s currently working toward becoming certified in veterinary acupuncture. Above all, Dr. Southwell likes meeting and greeting new pets and getting to know their animal parents.

Dr. Southwell is married to her high school crush, John, who works as an engineer. They have a human son, two dogs, Jake and Barry, as well as a cat named Karen. When she’s not at work or doting on her own pets, Dr. Southwell enjoys traveling, reading about history, and being a mother.
