Deborah Adwell is the newest addition to the River Run team but she has been practicing in the Richmond area since 2006. She is a hometown girl, born, raised and still living in Hanover County. She has undergraduate degrees from both UVA and VCU and graduated from the vet school at Virginia Tech. She shares her home with her husband Bruce, two sons Samuel & Bennett, two dogs (Junebug and Frankie), three cats (Ernie, Sarah and Oso) and a small flock of chickens and ducks. Her favorite things about being a small animal veterinarian are the bonds she forms with her clients, coworkers and their pets. She enjoys client education, individualized healthcare and finding ways to ensure both animals and their humans can live their best lives together. In her free time, she loves to read, garden, and find creative ways to keep her boys from destroying the house!
