Dr. Amanda Kaczmarek Parker grew up in the suburbs of Buffalo, NY with a passion for rescuing animals of all sorts. Her family was accustomed to seeing Dr. Amanda bring home injured birds, bunnies and basically anything she could catch. She moved south to Alabama with her family in high school where her love for all things southern began.
Her passion for animals fueled her collegiate career at Mississippi State University and Auburn University, where she received her bacherlors degree in Zoology and her doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2007. After graduation, Amanda returned to Buffalo to practice medicine while being surrounded by two of her other passions in life, family and Buffalo BIlls football! In her off time, Dr. Amanda cheered on the Bills from the sidelines as a Buffalo Bills cheerleader. She stayed in Buffalo for 2 years before the south called her back. Dr. Amanda moved to Atlanta, near her mom, and cultivated her surgical skills and love for orthopedics at another small animal practice.
She returned home to Alabama in 2010 to reunite with her high school sweetheart Jason. They married in 2012 and love calling Decatur home! In June 2013, Dr. Amanda and Jason purchased Animal Tracks Veterinary Hospital together. Jason works primarily as an engineer but Dr. Amanda keeps him busy at the clinic in his “off” time. They share their lives with a Golden Retriever named Aurora, a Great Pyrenees named Gracelynn, a lab mix named Ladybug and two crazy felines Sofia and Thumper.
Dr. Amanda and Jason are excited about all the future holds for Animal Tracks and look forward to providing great veterinary care for all our furry friends in the north Alabama area.
