Dr. Chillemi grew up in Colorado camping, hiking, and skiing. On vacations, she learned to ride horses and mules with her grandfather in Oklahoma. Dr. Chillemi moved to Oklahoma as a teenager, where her interest in and love for horses continued to grow.
Dr. Chillemi received her Bachelor of Science in Physiology and her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine at Oklahoma State University. She went on to complete an internship in Theriogenology (Reproduction) at Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Followed by a rotating medical, surgical, sports medicine and reproduction internship at Weatherford Equine Medical Center for 18 months. After completing both internships, Dr. Kendra accepted a position on a Cutting Horse Ranch as the sole equine practitioner.
Her main areas of focus are Equine Reproduction, Sports Medicine, Internal Medicine, Colic, Neonatal, and Foal Care. When she is not working she enjoys riding her quarter horses, attending NCHA events, and spending time outdoors.
Dr. Chillemi is now thrilled to be returning back to Weatherford, TX to join the Foland Veterinary Services Team! She looks forward to providing exceptional care to your horses and small animals.
