Dr. Ashley Hennequin

Dr. Ashley Hennequin

Hello! My name is Dr. Ashley Hennequin and I am a graduate of Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine. I was born and raised in Connecticut, completed my bachelor’s degree at Delaware Valley University in Pennsylvania, and then moved to Tennessee for veterinary school. I am particularly interested in mixed animal medicine, treating large animals, small animals, and exotics! If I could work with any species of animal, I would jump at the opportunity to work with dolphins. Prior to deciding I wanted to pursue veterinary medicine, I wanted to be a dolphin trainer, so if I could combine working with dolphins and veterinary medicine I would be ecstatic! I currently have a Great Dane named Diesel, a bearded dragon named The Dragon, and a few fish. My hobbies include hiking with my dog, coaching cheerleading with my mom, and photography. My favorite foods are pizza and chocolate chip cookies. I am excited to be a part of the Prospect Ridge Veterinary Hospital team!
