Tami Lane, Associate Veterinarian


Dr. Lane was born in Johnston County and moved to Stanly county in 2015. She graduated from North Carolina State University of Veterinary Medicine in 2006 and joined West Stanly Animal Clinic in August of 2014 and enjoys working with all of her patients. 

Dr. Lane states that her Kindergarten teacher asked her class "what do you want to be when you grow up?" and she answered "a veterinarian or a horse trainer." She has always loved science and has been curious about how things worked and helping animals, so it just seemed like the perfect fit.

Her favorite part of her job is watching a sick animal recover and go back to being the loved member of their family that they were before. She also enjoys educating people on how to make the best decisions for their pets so that they can live a long happy life!

Dr. Lane lives with her husband in Albemarle and has a grown daughter and shares two young stepsons with her husband. She and her family have a Yorkie-mix Bonnie and a Siamese-mix named Betsy. In her spare time, she loves riding motorcycles, shooting and collecting guns, and listening to live music - preferably local bands.
