Dr. Nifong grew up in Durham, NC. She received her bachelor's degree in 2008 and her DVM in 2012, both from NC State. She moved to Greenville, SC after vet school for her first veterinary position. Dr. Nifong has always loved animals and was raised around a ton of pets so she decided halfway through college that vet school was the way to go! Dr. Nifong has an interest in exotic pets as well as pocket pet medicine and surgery. She has several pets including Bandit, a 14-year-old pet, Jake, a 7-year-old dog adopted during vet school, Hootie, an 8-year-old cat also adopted during vet school, and Sparkle, a 5-year-old pet adopted from local rescue. In her free time, Dr. Nifong enjoys hiking with Jake, crocheting, doing crossword puzzles, and cooking.
