Dr. Racheal M. Redman has been working with animals all of her life. She grew up in the rural area of Waddell, Arizona where her family had a small 2 acre farm. As with most little girls, it did not take long for Dr. Redman to fall in love with horses. By the age of 13 she had gotten her first dun paint mare, joined the local 4H Waddell Hoofprints Club, and had quickly started to learn about hard work and responsibility. For many years she took lessons, learned how to ride English and Western, and even competed at the local, state, and national level. Dr. Redman attended high school in Goodyear at Millennium High School. Throughout high school she became very active in the FFA, showed a variety of livestock, competeing on many career development events, and traveled with the high school rodeo circuit. After graduating from high school, Dr. Redman attended Arizona State University for undergraduate work. There she recieved a degree in Agribusiness Sciences. Dr. Redman then went on to complete veterinary school at Western University of Health Sciences in Southern California. While in school she focused on mixed animal practice and was an active member of Equine Club, Veterinary Business Club, and Bovine club. Dr. Redman has had the opportunity to complete multiple poultry externships and enjoys working together with backyard flocks and producers as well with other fowl producers and breeders. Along with this she truly enjoys working with horses and small ruminants. In her spare time Dr. Redman enjoys showing her two paint horse yearlings with her fiance, working out, and spending quality time with family and friends. Providing quality care and medicine for backyard livestock and pets has always been something Dr. Redman is passionate about and this has served as the foundation of her studies. She is excited to be in Mesa and to have the opportunity to work with and provide service to the animal owners throughout the valley.
