Meet the Allegheny Veterinary Services Team
Professional, Skilled, Experienced and Compassionate
Dr. Tracy Walker, Veterinarian
Doctor Tracy Walker grew up just East of Elkins, WV, near the Cheat River. Dr. Walker studied at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine, with a focus on large animal medicine and surgery. After graduating from veterinary school, Dr. Walker continued her advanced training, clinical studies, and internship at the University of Georgia.
Aside from formal university training and education, Dr. Walker has traveled extensively throughout the country, where she gained significant hands-on veterinary experience. Despite much of her prior experience being related to the equine industry, Dr. Walker has extensive experience treating many types of livestock and companion animals. Following her education and training, Dr. Walker returned to practice veterinary medicine in West Virginia, after realizing that there is, indeed, no place like home.
As a highly active member of several local and state organizations that contribute to the overall welfare of the community, as well as the veterinary profession, Dr. Walker proudly serves on the local Randolph County Park and Recreation Board, the Randolph County 4-H Leaders, and is an active member of the Randolph County Regional Riding Club. Dr. Walker has served as a state board member for the West Virginia Veterinary Medical Association. Dr. Walker is pleased to have become a member of the American Association of Equine Practitioners Professional Conduct and Ethics Committee as of 2012. In her spare time, Dr. Walker enjoys spending time riding any of her eight quarter horses and showing her cutting horse.
Dr. Jessica Harvey, Veterinarian
Dr. Jessica Harvey is a Buckhannon native. She completed her undergraduate degree at West Virginia Wesleyan College. Her veterinary degree was done at St. George’s University with her clinical year being completed at Iowa State University. At Iowa State University, she focused on theriogenology and food animal production. After clinical year, she completed a 6 month internship at Iowa State in mixed animal to help prepare her for mixed animal practice.
Dr. Harvey has had a love for cows since she can remember. She grew up raising beef cattle. Through 4-H and FFA, she showed and sold market hogs, market lambs, market goats, market rabbits, market steers, and feeder calves. She achieved her American FFA degree. During summer and winter breaks, she worked in a small animal clinic that allowed her to gain small animal experience.
In her spare time, Dr. Harvey loves to spend time with her animals whether it be dogs, cats, or cows. She can also be found on a tractor if the occasion arises. Dr. Harvey’s main interests are food animal reproduction, herd health, and small animal surgery.
