Dr. Martha Briley
Dr. Martha Briley has practiced veterinary medicine for 24 years. But, she’s been in a veterinary clinic her entire life. Martha’s dad, a veterinarian, encouraged her love of animals and science. At the age of 6, Martha decided to become a veterinarian and never considered any other career.
Dr. Briley was born in Abbeville and grew up in Gulfport, MS. She graduated from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1993. Martha has been very involved in organized veterinary medicine serving as president of the local association and chairman of state committees. In the community, Dr. Briley has volunteered in the Junior League of Lake Charles, Good Shepherd Episcopal Church and Episcopal Day School. Her most rewarding volunteerism is mentoring young students in their decision to become a veterinarian.
Martha’s free time is spent with her family. Her two wonderful children, Ellen and Spencer, keep her very busy. Martha can always be found on the sidelines of either the softball field, soccer field or track field cheering on her 2 favorite athletes. Martha’s hobbies are reading, gardening and cooking.
It’s not a surprise that there is a menagerie of animals at her house…Jilly, a Chug, ; Jake and Michael, 2 orange cats, ; Truffles, a rabbit,; and Rosie, a French Bulldog
Dr. Briley’s clinical interests include dermatology, internal medicine, and geriatrics.
