A native of Germany, I moved to the United States in 1994, following my husband Shane who is from Georgia (those Georgia boys will sweep you off your feet!). Veterinary medicine is my second career and I feel that it is my calling. I finished my undergraduate studies at the University of North Georgia in 2004 with a B.S. in biology. I studied veterinary medicine at the University of Georgia and graduated in 2009. Since then I have been working in private practice and started working for Barrow Veterinary Hospital in 2015 as a relief veterinarian.
I live in Winder with my husband Shane and our dogs Stanley and Copper (our special needs wheelchair dog), and our cat Piefke. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, jeeping, playing guitar, and swimming.
I feel privileged to have had the chance to work alongside Dr. Powers for the past several years. The staff at Barrow Veterinary Hospital and I will continue serving the community as Dr. Powers has done for so many years.

My name is Anita Allbritten. I was born in Winder ,Ga and I began working for Dr Powers in 1981 while I was at Winder Barrow High School. I continued through college and when I graduated from UGA with a BS in EnvIronmental Health Science , I continued working at Barrow Veterinary Hospital doing something I love; working with animals. I obtained my Vet Tech License in 2007 and now I am the Office Manager here at Barrow Vet . In 2015 I married my wonderful husband Jeff (who is also from Winder) and we have quite a menagerie of 1 Chihuahua (Tinkie, who is in charge) 2 cats and 13 chickens. Tinkie comes to work with me every day and is my little mini me. It is a privilege to help with our clients and their pets in happy times and in sad times because I know and understand there will be both . Our pets are our part of our family . We are blessed to have them and their unconditional love.
