Santa Rosa Beach, Fla. (January 10, 2018) – Gulf Place on 30A welcomes new Veterinarian in the town center and announces a number of events beginning in 2018.

30A Vet, located in Gulf Place on Spires Lane, and Dr. Tonia Shatzel have announced a new veterinarian, Dr. Kelly Brawner, will be taking over the practice. Raised on a professional Quarter Horse farm in central Alabama, Dr. Brawner received her Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from Auburn University, attended veterinary school at St. Matthew’s University, and completed her clinical year rotations at Oklahoma State University.
