Dr. Amari Wells (she/her), DVM, USDA AccreditedDr. Amari Wells was born and raised in Ithaca NY, only a few miles from the Cornell Veterinary School – so some might say she was destined to be a veterinarian. She attended Bucknell University and graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in Animal Behavior. She then returned to her hometown and fulfilled her dream of becoming a veterinarian, gaining her veterinary degree from Cornell University Veterinary School.
After graduating, Amari moved to Northern Virginia to begin her career as a small animal veterinarian. Her deep passion for strengthening the human animal bond led her to become Fear Free Certified and guides how she practices medicine. She is also a Category 1 USDA accredited veterinarian. While she enjoys all aspects of general practice, Amari’s particular interests include preventative medicine, dermatology, palliative care and surgery.
Outside of work, you can find Amari adventuring anywhere near the water with her lovable rescue dog Lucy “Goose” and equally lovable husband. She also enjoys reading, gardening and anything that involves eating!
