Building a Practice

Dr. Kelly Wathen Keymer ('10)
Make no mistake about it, Kelly Wathen Keymer is a veterinarian. But she is also a Navy spouse and her husband's frequent transfers continue to take her around the United States. Everywhere from Virginia Beach to Seattle and now back to the East Coast in Maryland. Her career has ranged from a mixed animal practice to a small animal emergency practitioner. Today's Keymer's passion for equine medicine has led to her starting Solis Veterinary Care. "I enjoy horses so much and there is just so much to learn that my time is best spent focusing on how I can help these amazing animals," Keymer said. "Taking good care of horses is the only thing I had ever wanted to do, so it was a natural transition."
