Dr. Karla Mejia

Dr. Karla Mejia

Veterinarian

Dr. Mejia (formerly Bean) is a native of Rowan County. Raised on a small hobby farm, her interest in animals and animal care began at a young age. After attending Wake Forest University, and spending 3 years of active duty in the United States Army, she decided to pursue her dream and attend Veterinary School. After another bachelor’s degree at NC State in Animal Science, she entered NC State’s Veterinary School and graduated in 2006. She is a member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners.

She and her husband Wil own a small hobby farm, complete with horses, a mini mule (Jelly Bean), llamas, a steer, chickens, and ducks. A fan of kitties, you can see many at her home, as well as at the clinic. Their two Chihuahuas, Charlie and Petunia, go everywhere with them and get spoiled daily. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling and horseback riding.
