Dr. Karen Hancock Young, DVM
Veterinarian, Clinic Owner

She decided at the age of nine that she wanted to be a veterinarian and never wavered from the path. Dr. Young graduated from Paul Laurence Dunbar’s Math, Science and Technology program in 2002 continuing her love of science and animals through her high school career. She then went on to acquire her Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Kentucky in 2005 and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. After graduating from veterinary school, Dr. Young worked in a busy mixed animal practice in Summerville, GA for almost 3 years before she had the opportunity to purchase Scott County Veterinary Clinic and move back to beautiful Central Kentucky.
She lives in Georgetown with her husband, Chad and her 2-year-old daughter, Lauren.
