Dr. Hendrick, owner and veterinarian

 

Dr. Kimberly R. Hendrick was born and raised in Odessa, Texas.  Her two passions growing up were her animals and sports.  She competed in the 1994 NAIA Nationals in hurdles for Howard Payne University.  She earned her Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science and Veterinary Science from Texas A&M University in 1997 and 1998, respectively, and her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine, also from TAMU in 2001. She initially practiced medicine in Lubbock for five years before moving to the Brazos valley.  She and her husband Cory have two children, Audrey and Bruce, plus a herd of Angus Cross cattle, and a variety of dogs, cats, turtles, chickens, and birds.  In her spare time, Dr H. likes to run, read books, play tennis, sew, knit, and crochet.

Dr. Jimmy R. Lloyd was born and raised in the Kurten community and attended Texas A&M University. He earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Texas A&M University, College of Veterinary Medicine in 1959. He practiced in different areas of Texas and Iowa but came back to Bryan in the early ’90s. What Dr. Lloyd loves most about veterinary medicine is the relationships he has built over the years with his clients. He has three grown sons- John, Jerry, and Judson- and five grandchildren. He enjoys attending church at Reliance Baptist, watching his grandchildren play sports and talking politics.
