Dr. Christy Wilkerson
Dr. Christy Wilkerson is delighted with the career path that she has worked toward since the age of three. A graduate of Liberty High School in 1987, Dr. Wilkerson obtained her Veterinary degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1994.
A career long Northland veterinarian, Dr. Wilkerson started at Eagle Animal Hospital in Riverside Mo. After nine years there, she went to Amity Woods Animal Hospital and Shoal Creek Animal Hospital. In 2007 she rejoined her high school mentor, Dr. Joe Howard at Crossroads Animal Hospital. "It has been an amazing fit and where I am
supposed to be," says Wilkerson.
Dr. Wilkerson's goal as a veterinarian is to provide the best quality of life for all her patients. She wants everyone to know the true joy of having a four legged kid in their life. She strives to listen to owner/parent expectations and give them the best options for care.
Dr. Wilkerson married her high school sweetheart, Neil Wilkerson in 1990. They have two children, Nathan born in 1997, and Josie born in 2000. The Wilkerson's share their home with a German Shorthair Pointer named Jessie, and a Fox Terrier mix named Annabelle.
In her spare time, Dr. Wilkerson dedicates herself to supporting her kids in their school, debate, football and dance endeavors (i.e. she is a taxi service).
