Catherine Robinson

Catherine Robinson
DVM Great Bridge

Dr. Robinson was raised on a farm in rural southern Illinois. Animals were her first friends! Dr. Robinson knew she wanted to be an “animal doctor” from the moment she learned that you could do it for a living.

She received her bachelor’s degree at Murray State University as a pre-vet major and also completed the veterinary technologist program in 2000.  Dr. Robinson graduated from the University Of Illinois College Of Veterinary Medicine in 2004.

After graduating, she practiced in southern Indiana for 5 years and West Virginia for 7 years. Dr. Robinson also enjoyed teaching classes for the veterinary technician school while in West Virginia. She and her husband, along with their 2 dogs and 2 cats, moved to the Hampton Roads area in 2016. She joined our veterinary family in 2017.  Dr. Robinson enjoys traveling to new places and also traveling back to the Midwest to watch her nephews and nieces grow up. 

Melissa Williams

Melissa Williams
DVM Great Bridge

Dr. Melissa Williams grew up in Michigan and Ohio with a natural love for animals. Veterinary medicine never seemed like a choice. It was just the only thing that she wanted to do for the rest of her life. Dr. Williams received her undergraduate degree in biology and music in 1999 from Heidelberg College in Tiffin, Ohio. She graduated with her veterinary medicine degree from the University of Minnesota.

Since graduating in 2003, she has been in the Hampton Roads area in a small animal veterinary practice. Her menagerie consists of two senior cats (Isis and onyx), two chinchillas (Merry and Pippin) and a rabbit (Violet). She loves working with the small fuzzy exotic pets too! Dr. Williams enjoys working with families to take the best care of their furry family members, from pediatric to senior care. In her free time, she relaxes by running, hiking, baking and going to the beach.
