Brianna Patten, Veterinarian
Brianna Patten joined our team in July 2019. She is a graduate of Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine with an undergraduate degree from Auburn University in Animal Science. She graduated Magna Cum Laude and was inducted into the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society.
Dr. Patten grew up in Prattville, Alabama where she was the president of the local 4-H horse club and volunteered with a handicap riding stable. She was frequently requested to open many of the local events by flying the American Flag on horseback. Horses are not her only passion, however – she has spent a great deal of time volunteering at a multitude of animal shelters.
While she was growing up, she became motivated to make a difference in the lives of the people in her community. She began shadowing her local veterinarian and states that “I was able to see how helping people’s cherished animals can make a huge difference in their lives”.
While in veterinary school, Dr. Patten developed a special interest in nutrition, sports medicine, and preventative medicine. When she graduated, she decided that she would like to continue working with both large and small animals and has found a special niche here at Scenic City Veterinary Services.
When she is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her dog, Tripp, who is a 4-year-old miniature Golden Doodle. The 2 of them spend hours hiking together and cheering on the Auburn Tigers. Dr. Patten also likes to do a bit of antique shopping, enjoys going to concerts, and trying new foods. She attends Cross of Calvary Church and would love to opportunity to go on another mission trip with Christian Veterinary Missions in the near future.
Sarah Wallace, Veterinarian
Dr. Sarah Wallace graduated from The Ohio State University in May of 2020. When growing up she would play “dogtor” with various family pets and over time accumulated various animals that needed help or saved from the family cat. She thanks her parents for their patience and support while she brought in snapping turtles found along the road, baby birds that fell from their nests, and bunnies that the cat got ahold of.
Undergrad at The University of Findlay is where her career path changed and she found her niche in the barn. Still a girl who loves to dress up and wear her high heels and lipstick, she is just as excited to get into some boots and coveralls and get dirty working on cattle, and other large animals.
Dr. Wallace spends her spare time struggling to control her two large breed dogs as they pull her every which way as they explore and chase squirrels. She currently has three animals- a Irish Wolfhound named Waffles, a Great Dane named Gypsy, and a naked cat named Scrotum. When not spending time with her pets she’s usually spending time with her family, thrifting, exploring new places, or participating in some sort of sporting activity. All in all she considers herself a “pretty rad individual”.

Linda joined our team as a veterinary technician in March 2020. She brings more than 35 years of veterinary experience to Scenic City Veterinary Services.
