Dr. Riddick grew up in a suburb of Memphis, TN, where she rode horses and became involved in the West Tennessee Hunter/Jumper Association. After high school, she attended Mississippi State University for both her undergraduate degree in biological engineering, as well as her veterinary degree. During vet school, she became interested in pursuing specialty training and entered a one year rotating internship in equine medicine and surgery at Louisiana State University. Following her internship, she moved across the country to enter a one year large animal fellowship at Oregon State University. At the end of the fellowship, Dr. Riddick was invited to stay at OSU for a three year residency in large animal surgery. In early 2015, all of Dr. Riddick’s hard work paid off when she passed her specialty examination, becoming a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.
Dr. Riddick enjoys working on a variety of cases, especially lamenesses and performance injuries. Additionally, she enjoys the challenge of both minor and complex surgeries, such as arthroscopy, laparoscopy, wound reconstruction, angular limb correction, sinus and dental surgery, as well as a variety of other procedures. At home, Dr. Riddick enjoys spending time with her two cats and her mixed breed dog, Roxy. With Roxy in tow whenever possible, Dr. Riddick enjoys riding, camping, and hiking. She also enjoys photography, drawing, and painting. (Source)
