Joseph With Horse

Joseph is the driving force for all things technical at Chimney Rock Animal Hospital. As our Head Technician, he works closely with Dr. Ratliff to stay up to date with the latest in veterinary care. Joseph came to Chimney Rock from a mixed animal practice where he worked as a technician with Dr. Ratliff before Dr. Ratliff bought the Hospital. Joseph's positive attitude, sharp mind, and strong work ethic make him invaluable to not only our business, but our family.

Joseph was raised in Winters, TX before moving to Greenbrier, AR where he graduated high school. After graduation Joseph returned to Texas where he worked in the oil and gas industry for 5 years. He learned the values of hard work, integrity, and honesty working in this industry. With the downturn of the oil and gas industry, Joseph started looking for other career opportunities. This is where he discovered that his hard-working attitude and love for animals would be a great asset. Joseph now lives back in Winters, TX, where he helps his father with their family farm. In his free time, Joseph enjoys hunting, fishing, roping and working with his horse.  He enjoys the expert level of veterinary knowledge and down to earth atmosphere provided at Chimney Rock Animal Hospital.
