Dr. Chelsie Steele
Hello! My name is Dr. Chelsie Steele. As a Knoxville native, I earned a bachelor of science degree from Tennessee Technological University and a doctorate of veterinary medicine from Lincoln Memorial University.
In my free time, I enjoy running, reading, and most importantly, spending time with my family including my beagle and cat.
I first decided to become a veterinarian because I felt called into the profession.
As a teenager, my family dog was like my child, and I found a passion for helping others with fur children. I began volunteering as a 16 year old and worked my way up, keeping my hardworking parents as role models.
I have a deep rooted passion for pet wellness, science, preserving the human animal bond, and improving the quality of life of my patients.
When I enter an exam room, my mission is to meet the needs of my patients and build a client relationship centered around trust and a mutual agreement on a plan of action for health care.
As a veterinarian, I am honored to make a difference.
