My name is Greg Echols, and I am currently a small animal relief veterinarian providing services in North Carolina. My non-traditional career path to become a veterinarian was very extensive. I obtained my associate degree from Alamance Community College in Burlington, NC. I then completed my bachelor's degree in Lab Animal Science from NC A&T State University in Greensboro, NC. I obtained my DVM degree from Virginia Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in Blacksburg, VA in 2020.  I am also a competitive bodybuilder and powerlifter. I do have special interest in dermatology and soft tissue surgery.
