Dr. Amanda Finch
University of Kentucky football and basketball fans may well recognize Dr. Finch since she was a member of the UK Dance Team until her graduation in 2015 with a degree in Animal Science. She graduated magna cum laude with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Alabama’s Tuskegee University in May 2020.
Like many Richmond Road Veterinary Clinic staff, Dr. Finch was raised around animals. “I grew up with four golden retrievers. My pets are Lyla, a Labrador-hound mix, and Sadie, a Labrador mix.”
Not surprisingly, her first job was as a veterinary technician in Lexington, her hometown. “Since I grew up in Lexington, it means the world to be in Kentucky and learn from such wonderful doctors at this clinic.”
On the personal side, Dr. Finch met her husband Braeden in 2014 before a UK basketball game. They welcomed a baby boy, Campbell, in 2023 and have terrific role models for parenting. “I always looked up to my parents while growing up. My mom set the perfect example of how to treat people as you’d like to be treated and always have a kind heart.”
“My favorite part about working at RRVC is the atmosphere. Everyone is so eager and willing to learn and work together to ensure the best quality medicine and care. It’s great to be here!”
