Our Team

Dr. Elizabeth Price
Owner, Veterinarian
Dr. Elizabeth Price loved biology and the sciences ever since she was a little girl, and developed a passion for healthcare during her college years. After volunteering at a hospital for human patients throughout her college career, Dr. Price had a thought: why not satisfy her desire to help others while simultaneously getting to work hands-on with animals in a medical capacity? She quickly settled on veterinary medicine and hasn’t looked back since!

Dr. Price is originally from South Carolina, and moved to Hixson, Tennessee with her family when she was 12 years old. She completed her undergraduate degree at East Tennessee State University, before gaining acceptance to the University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Price signed on with the South Rhea Animal Hospital team as an Associate Veterinarian shortly after graduating in 2012, and became a co-owner in the fall of 2016 along with Dr. Sherle Thompson.

Away from work, Dr. Price enjoys kayaking and relaxing in the peace and quiet of the great outdoors. She and her husband have a young daughter, Charley Kate, and several pets. Dr. Price and her family own Buster, an aging Chihuahua who often comes to work with his mother; a big-eared mutt named Ellie; Lady the 90-pound Black Lab mix; a senior Boxer named Baxter; and a black cat who goes by Kiko.
Dr. Sherle Thompson
Owner, Veterinarian
Dr. Sherle Thompson is proud to serve the area’s pets and animal owners as a veterinarian and co-owner of South Rhea Animal Hospital.

Dr. Thompson completed her undergraduate studies in animal science at Auburn University in 1993, then earned her Doctorate at the University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 1997. She joined the South Rhea Animal Hospital team in 2000, becoming a co-owner in 2005. Three years later, Dr. Thompson was instrumental in the founding and building of Sequoyah Animal Hospital, where she currently practices.
Dr. Joshua Singer
Dr. Joshua Singer used to work on a ranch in Colorado. One day, his horse fractured a bone in his foot; working directly with the local veterinarian to help heal his equine companion showed Dr. Singer just how much of an impact a veterinarian can have. He knew right away that he wanted to do the same thing!

Dr. Singer grew up outside of Atlanta, and attended Colorado State University to complete his pre-requisite coursework before heading to the University of Georgia for veterinary school. He joined the South Rhea Animal Hospital family in June of 2017, and couldn’t be happier to live and work in eastern Tennessee—an area he’s always loved—as an Associate Veterinarian with the clinic team.

Dr. Singer brings with him special interests in orthopedic medicine and ophthalmology work. He also loves being a part of a close-knit team that works together to do what’s best for each and every patient; Dr. Singer especially likes meeting new pets and their owners on a daily basis!

Aside from his interests in the veterinary world, Dr. Singer enjoys outdoor activities, exercising, renovating his home, and spending quality time with his family. He and his wife, Alisa, have a beautiful and fun-loving daughter named Eliza, and share their home with two dogs: a cute but mischievous Golden Retriever, Hank, and an athletic Black Lab named Gunner.
Dr. Karen Crocker
Dr. Dayna Love
Dr. Dayna Love has adored animals from the time of her earliest memories—she grew up riding horses, and spent every weekend at the barn or attending horse shows. After shadowing a few of her local mixed-animal veterinarians, Dr. Love’s mind was made up: she would one day help others’ pets as a veterinarian herself! Her dream never wavered, and she’s proud to now serve animals and their owners daily as a member of the South Rhea Animal Hospital team.

Dr. Love grew up in Canfield, Ohio, where she was active in the 4-H Club and showed livestock at the local county fair. She moved to Columbus to attend Otterbein University, earning a double major in molecular biology and equine pre-veterinary medicine while riding for the school’s equestrian team. Next, Dr. Love headed to Ohio State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine to earn her Doctoral degree and become a licensed veterinarian. She graduated in May of 2018 and was thrilled to accept a position with the South Rhea Animal Hospital family that June.

Here at the clinic, Dr. Love enjoys small-animal surgery and the way she gets to work with her hands to directly improve a pet’s health. She’s also fond of going out on farm calls to treat large-animal patients—Dr. Love enjoys getting to work outside in the beautiful Tennessee scenery on a regular basis!

When she’s not helping pets to live happier, healthier lives here at the hospital, Dr. Love can be found hiking, exercising, traveling—she’s made several trips out of the country, and even completed a month-long externship at an equine hospital in Sydney, Australia!—and spending time with her dog at home. She shares her life with Simba, a young Boxer mix who becomes the world’s largest lap dog when he isn’t outside chasing things.
