Cameron Brewer Barkley,
DVM Veterinarian and Owner of Millcreek Animal Hospital (with PeeDee)
Dr. Barkley received her BA from Wake Forest University in 1991 and graduated magna cum Laude from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in 2000. Immediately after graduation, she joined Millcreek Animal Hospital. Five years later, Dr. Barkley was presented with the opportunity to purchase the clinic – allowing her to continue doing the job she loves most while pursuing the dream of owning her own business. Today, Dr. Barkley is still an active part of the clinic. She specializes in small animal surgery and medicine and thrives on helping her patients live the happiest and fullest lives. She has been married for 19 years and has three beautiful daughters.

Six cats round out the family – Elvis, Eva, Tripod, Oliver, Cooper and Pirate. When not working, Dr. Barkley is an avid runner and gladly donates her time and expertise to charitable organizations – most notably Carolina Wildlife and The Heartworm Project.
