Dr. Albert F. Williams, III
President, Owner, Veterinarian
Dr. Albert Williams grew up on a farm in Lake City, Florida, where he was surrounded by everything from dogs and cats to cattle, horses, pigs, and chickens. When he was three years old and got his first pet, a German Shepherd puppy named Skeeter, he accompanied his mother and the pup to the local veterinarian’s office. As soon as the doctor entered the exam room, young Dr. Williams was in awe. He knew that he wanted to become an animal doctor himself!
Dr. Williams began his journey by studying animal science at the University of Florida. He started volunteering at a clinic in Gainesville at the same time, and was hired on about two weeks later—he credits his experiences there for forming the foundation of his veterinary knowledge that he still uses every day. Next, Dr. Williams graduated with his Bachelor’s degree, completed a year of post-baccalaureate studies, and was then accepted into the class of 1992 at the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Amanda Walton
When Dr. Amanda Walton was a little girl, she would constantly tell her father that she wanted to become a dog when she got older. Her father would in turn try to convince her to become a doctor. Now, she likes to tell him that they compromised! Dr. Walton’s passion for pets hasn’t let up since her earliest days—for her, helping animals daily as a veterinarian was simply the only path that made sense. She’s proud to serve as an Associate Veterinarian here at Arch Creek Animal Hospital.
Dr. Walton was born in Denver but also spent time growing up in California, Georgia, and Pennsylvania. She completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Miami, then moved on to veterinary school at the University of Georgia. After graduating, Dr. Walton moved back to Miami to launch her career as a veterinarian.
