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 from 2011 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 so many of the Richmond Road Veterinary Clinic staff, Dr. Finch was raised around animals. “I grew up with four golden retrievers. My current 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 back in Kentucky and learning from such wonderful doctors at this clinic.”
On the personal side, Dr. Finch met her husband Braeden in 2014 before a UK basketball game. She has two siblings, a sister who is an attorney and a brother who is a clinical psychologist. “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!”
