Dr. Bodie graduated from Ross University Veterinary School in January of 2008 after finishing her clinical rotations at LSU school of Veterinary Medicine. But her love of Veterinary Medicine started long before that, she started at 16 years old as a Kennel Assistant and Veterinary Assistant. After graduation she completed a yearlong internship in Equine Internal Medicine and Surgery in Florida before returning to her home, Mobile AL. Dr. Bodie has been working in and around Mobile, AL as a small animal relief veterinarian for over 10 years but decided to put down her roots by opening up Highlands Veterinary Hospital in 2019.
Since opening her own practice, Dr. Bodie has partnered with several animal welfare and rescue organizations to help reduce the suffering of animals in our community. When opening her practice, she wanted to ensure that pet owners in the community had access to affordable spay & neuter services, as well as routine veterinary care. In 2022, Dr. Bodie was recognized for all her works by Access Magazine and received their Focus Empowers 40/40 award.
Dr. Bodie is married to her husband, A.J., and together they have a son, James, and two daughters, Ava and Emmy. She is also the mom of an adorable red pit bull named Princess Buttercup (Butters), a feisty longhaired calico cat named Fifi, and a beautiful sorrel quarter horse named Lucy.
