Merri Walden Crenshaw, D.V.M., is living her childhood dream of practicing veterinary medicine in her hometown of Spartanburg, SC. She and her husband purchased the Animal Clinic of Woodruff in 2002 to provide the Upstate with excellent medical care paired with a loving, family approach.
Merri was born in Spartanburg, SC, and graduated Dorman High School as valedictorian of her class. She received a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in biochemistry from Clemson University, then attended the University of Georgia for her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.). She graduated vet school magna cum laude, with honors, in 2001. Merri was honored to be named Veterinarian of the Year by her fellow clinicians at the University of Georgia.
After graduation, Merri returned to Upstate South Carolina to practice veterinary medicine. She married Christopher Crenshaw, who is a native of Savannah but also attended Dorman High School and Clemson University. Together they decided to build the Animal Clinic of Woodruff to serve the Spartanburg, Woodruff, and Roebuck areas that they call home. After four years of planning and hard work, the new Animal Clinic officially opened in 2004.
Merri and Christopher reside on a farm in Spartanburg with their many dogs, cats and horses.
