Dr. Robert Lee is the current co-owner of Tidewater Equine Clinic and has been practicing with the clinic since 1991. Born in Akron, OH, he grew up in the Allegheny Mountain town of Cumberland, MD. As a teenager, Dr. Lee enjoyed trail riding his two horses and working at his family-owned boarding facility. He earned his undergraduate degree in chemistry at Duke University and acquired his veterinary degree at Cornell University in 1991. Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Lee enjoys paddleboarding the local waterways and hiking the Appalachian Trail with his wife, Wendy. They enjoy their small farm that includes their horses Tex and Perri, their French Bulldog Oshie, and their barn cat Cecelia.
A recent addition to the Tidewater Equine Clinic veterinary staff, please welcome Dr. Emily Dreher (pronounced Dray-er). Dr. Dreher was born in Detriot, MI and grew up in Williamsburg, VA. At 13 years of age, she acquired ‘Flag’, a Paint mare who followed her through her college years and whom she still owns today. Dr. Dreher earned her bachelor of science degrees in Animal Science and Biological Systems Engineering at Virginia Tech. She then received her Masters degree in Genetics at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and recently attained her veterinary degree from the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Dreher and her husband, Greg, enjoy spending time outdoors, including hiking with their dogs. She also enjoys baking, canning and pickling. Her ongoing passion for rural VA farm life and the desire to help animals will make her quite an asset to the clientele of Tidewater Equine Clinic.
