Graduate University of Tennessee in Knoxville
Dr. Natasha Self is our newest Animal Oasis Family member. She was born in South Africa, but raised around Memphis, Tennessee. She did not know what she wanted to grow up to be until in High School when she experienced the human-animal bond while working at a horse stable. Caring for those animals daily gave her a purpose in life, which was further fostered while working at a small animal hospital. She went on to The University of Tennessee in Knoxville where she received her Bachelors and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degrees. Dr. Natasha’s favorite part of her job is getting to see owners experience their own human-animal bonds and also working with a variety of animals.
