Emily Burke

Emily may be the newest member of our Ormewood family, but she and Aubry are old friends. The two veterinary assistants have known each other since they were five. After finishing a degree in film with a minor in art from Georgia State University, Emily joined her long-time friend here at the animal hospital.
When she’s working at the hospital, Emily tends to the well-being of our patients and their families. She comforts our furry friends “while they’re being poked” (those are her words, not ours), though she really loves to assist during surgeries. The act of healing through surgery is something that Emily finds fascinating.
Working alongside Emily, it won’t take long for you to realize that her love for art and animals is strong. Not only did she grow up around Yorkies and cats, but she is also the daughter of a graphic artist.
Today, if you put a blank canvas in front of Emily, chances are she’s going to paint a cat on it (she’s currently working on a portrait of her kitten, Mavis. In addition to painting, Emily enjoys making pottery and playing her ukulele. As far as we know, she has no plans to write ukulele songs about cats.
