At the age of 5, she announced to her family that she was going to be a veterinarian when she grew up. Aside from life on the farm, she followed in her family’s footsteps and became a volunteer firefighter and EMT for the county. She attended Virginia Tech for her undergraduate education. In May 2011, she graduated from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Layton came to join Goochland Animal Clinic in October 2011.
She enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, and has a special interest in emergency medicine and soft tissue surgery. Outside of work, she values spending time with her family, engaging in outdoor activities, riding her horses, and enjoying the company of her own dogs, cats, and horses.
