Dr. Susan Brosman

Dr. Brosman and Tiger.jpgDr. Brosman was born in the countryside of Wiesbaden Germany to a military family. At very young age her family came to the United States and traveled from base to base as her dad was active in the US Air Force. She knew from the time she was five that she wanted to be a veterinarian when she found an abandoned little puppy that needed help. She continued helping all kinds of animals that were found along the side of the road. She entered the veterinary field at age 15 where she was an assistant and learned the ropes of veterinary medicine.

Pursing her dreams; in 1992, Dr. Brosman received her B.S. in Animal Dairy Science from Auburn University and then went on to attend Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine where she graduated in 1996. After vet school one of her first opportunities was to work in Florida with the exotic 400lb tigers. She enjoys internal medicine now working with the smallest of kittens

Currently Dr. Brosman resides in a community in Greene County where her daughter has the opportunity to attend Lake Oconee Academy and excels at playing the French Horn and advanced math. Dr. Brosman shares all her stories with her each night, as she lets her know the importance of taking care of animals; a brief look into her mom’s day and life. Her husband Greg is retired after 23 years in the US Air Force and turned his hobby of balloon making into a business adventure of its own. He has the pleasure of making all ages smile with his balloon artistry at all kinds of events. They have 2 cats and 2 dogs (Shih Tzus).

Dr. Brosman has a special interest in client education and believes that empowering the pet owner with knowledge will ensure their piece of mind and help their pet live a full, happy and healthy life.

She began her career with animals as an animal caretaker then advancing to a registered technician. Jennifer wasn’t done pursuing her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian, so she applied to the University of Georgia’s Vet School and graduated in 2013. Over the past 25 years Dr. Ladue has been surrounded by animals from dogs, cats, horses, cattle, wildlife and exotics. Her passion is in emergency medicine and working up an internal medicine case.

Dr. Ladue resides on a tranquil farm in beautiful Monticello with her husband and son where she takes care of her critters ranging from horses, birds, dogs and cats. Dr. Ladue’s son would like to pursue a career as a pilot/chef since graduating high school in 2015.

When Dr. Ladue is not busy taking care of her own animals or yours, she does enjoy fishing, team penning, reading, watching movies, farm work, painting and working with wildlife.

Tara Coile

Veterinary Assistant

Tara was born and raised in Greene county, and has always had a passion for animals. She received her B.A in Anthropology from UGA in 2005, and probably picked the wrong major as she has only had two jobs where she wasn't working with animals large or small. Taking care of animals is what she has done her whole life and when she isn't taking care of yours here at Park Place, she cares for 6 horses at a private facility, and her own two Australian shepherds, two ducks, one cat, and her personal horse. In her spare time, Tara enjoys horseback riding, hiking with her daughter and dogs, and spending quality time with her daughter.
