Ellen Manneschmidt, DVM, was born and raised in Knoxville, TN. She attended Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, TN, graduating with both her Associate of Applied Science and Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Technology. While in school, her rental house was affectionately known as the vet tech “ICU” because sick animals frequently made their way to her house for care. After undergrad, Dr. Manneschmidt worked as a veterinary technician in several practices in Knoxville, working as she completed her education at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. While she’s been working in veterinary medicine since 2006, she recently left her family in Tennessee to move to Philadelphia and start her career as a vet at Hickory Veterinary Hospital. Dr. Manneschmidt enjoys the diversity of emergency medicine and being able to provide care in a time of distress–both to pets and to families.
Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Manneschmidt enjoys hiking, camping, and staying active with her dog, Remington. When weather is less favorable, she pursues her hobbies in cake decorating and pet portraiture. She also has a cat, Squirrelly, who was a bottle-raising adventure during undergrad–one of the many animals that came through the vet tech ICU.
