In late August 2013, Dr. Otterburn announced his retirement and shared the exciting news that Dr. Stacey Chappell would be the practice's new owner. A native of Greensboro, Dr. Chappell grew up just minutes from Animal Medical Centre and is thrilled to be practicing in the neighborhood where his passion for veterinary medicine first began. Dr. Chappell is a seasoned veterinarian with 20+ years’ experience with small animals. He spent most of his career as the owner and medical director of a veterinary emergency hospital, where he gained vast experience in diagnosing and treating critical care patients and performing advanced surgical procedures. Dr. Chappell enjoyed the challenging experience of emergency medicine, but he missed being
able to form lasting relationships with his clients and patients, share in the joys of new puppies and kittens, and educate clients about preventive medicine. At Animal Medical Centre, Dr. Chappell looks forward to being your partner in your pet’s care and to providing client-centric services in a relaxed atmosphere. Dr. Chappell is a graduate of Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time outdoors with his sons, John Thomas and Lucius, and their myriad of dogs, cats, reptiles, horses and his bird.

Jennifer is a lifelong resident of North Carolina, born on the outskirts of Randleman and living most of her life in the rural areas surrounding Greensboro. Destined for this career, Jen grew
up in a veterinary clinic, going to work regularly with her mother who worked as a veterinary technician and wildlife rehabilitator. At the age of 14, Jen got her first job working after school as a kennel attendant. Learning all she could between her kennel duties, she quickly knew that animal medicine would be her life career choice. She was later hired as a veterinary assistant in the spring of 2001 and worked her way up the ladder at the same clinic as the Lead Technician until the clinic closed in late summer of 2016. She joined the AMC family in August 2016. When Jen isn’t caring for “fur babies” at the clinic, she devotes her time to her daughter Maisyn and spends time with her own furry children; an English Mastiff named Ruby Ann, and Asher, a sweet feline rescue.

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her beloved pets as well as dog and cat sitting for clients and friends.
Sam came to us in 2013 as a stray. The whole team at AMC fell in love with him from the start, and could not part with him. This is how he took on the very important role of Clinic Cat and he has been a fixture here ever since. He can be seen sprawled out on the countertop in the reception area or napping under the desk.
Opal is a very special English Mastiff that is beloved by clients and staff for her gentle nature and goofy mannerisms. She was born in 2017 and quickly became one of AMC’s official mascots. If you see Opal up front, feel free to pet her and give her a cookie. She’s a gentle giant with a loud bark and a huge heart!
Calique is a feisty African Grey Parrot that loves talking, making sound effects, and eating french fries. She sometimes hangs out near the front where clients can enjoy watching her antics, but we don’t recommend getting too close, she likes to surprise unsuspecting humans with an occasional nip!
