Dr. Autumn Madden

I am from Washington, DC, and I wanted to be a veterinarian since watching my uncle on his farm at 8. I graduated from Tuskegee University with a BSc in Animal, Poultry, and Nutritional Sciences in 2010. During that time I was a member of the Marching Crimson Piper Band. I also obtained my DVM from Tuskegee in 2016 as well.

In my spare time, I love camping, fishing, listening to music, reading, writing, and spending time with my 4 fur children. I have spent 5 years in general practice working with cats and dogs. My areas of special interest include: Traditional Chinese Medicine, holistic medicine, behavior, nutrition, internal medicine, and neurology.
