Hello, I'm Dr. Ally! I have always had a passion for animals and veterinary medicine, and I think it is easy to say that this is not a career for me but a lifestyle! I started working at an animal hospital when I was 15 years old as a kennel assistant and have climbed the ladder by working in all different positions over the years! I earned my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M) in 2017 after graduating from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and completing my clinical year at Auburn University School of Veterinary Medicine (WAR EAGLE!)!!
After vet school I returned "home" to Georgia and started my career as a mixed animal veterinarian where I learned from one of the best mentors I could have asked for, Dr. Teal! In 2018 I had the opportunity to continue to grow as a mixed animal vet and moved to Fort Myers, FL. As much as I loved where I was at, my life long dream/goal has always been to own my own practice that had a "small town, family feel". After learning from incredible mentors and practicing for 5 years, I felt I was ready to make that jump and purchased the Animal Medical Clinic of Punta Gorda (AMCPG) in August 2022!
My goal as a hospital owner has always been to provide affordable but excellent care to you and your sweet babies. As you get to know me you will see that I have an outgoing personality mixed with a fun, dry sense of humor but also a very soft and compassionate side for those tough times. I believe in treating your pets as if they were my own. During your fur babies appointment when we are trying to come up with a treatment plan, I will always tell you all of the different options for approaching an issue so we can pick the best course of action for you and your loved ones.
As far as the "about me" goes - my family and friends mean the world to me so when I'm not in the clinic you can find me spending time with them! I have 3 brothers who I am extremely close with who have given me 2 “bonus sisters”! My parents are incredible and have always been my biggest cheerleaders. Boats and water are my happy place, whether it's creating memories down in the Everglades on the airboat or out on the ocean doing some fishing and hanging at the local sandbars. I love to travel and hope to continue to do so whether it's a quick trip down to the Keys or across the world in Africa. I love football so during the fall you can find me cheering on Auburn and the Falcons! My four legged children also love a lot of these things so it's not uncommon to see them tagging along with me!
If there are any other questions or things you'd like to know feel free to ask me! I look forward to building a bond and relationship with you and your sweet babies!

Ashlee is a Florida native raised in Fort Myers. She grew up with several animals from guinea pigs to horses and everything in between. Working with animals comes so natural with her so it was no question that working in a veterinary hospital was the perfect job. Ashlee loves to care for all patients and make sure everyone is having a good day and on the path to success! When she is not at the office you can find her outside with her horses, on a boat soaking up the sun or spending time with her family! Ashlee and her Husband have one son named Casin. Casin loves anything outside and loves to be a good helper. Throughout his day he likes to drive his tractor around the yard, eating all the snacks and just enjoying the outdoors.
