Our Doctors

 

Dr. Maya Chapman:

Dr. Chapman was born in Texas and grew up in Hunstville, AL. She moved to Niceville in 2005 after graduating veterinary school and practiced up in Crestview for nine years at the same clinic. In the summer of 2014 she left the clinic in Crestview to open her own place locally. She is married to Stewart Chapman and has a daughter...Charlee (born 2012), two dogs: Sioux (an aussie/heeler mix) and Loki (coyote looking sheltie mix) and one outside cat (Hansel the grey tabby who is a very successful hunter).

Dr. Chapman has three degrees all from Auburn University: 1999 BS in Animal Science, 2001 MS in Equine Nutrition and Biochemistry, 2005 DVM from College of Veterinary Medicine. WAR EAGLE!

Dr. Chapman loves the outdoors. During the summer months you can find her in her spare time somewhere on the water...either the ocean fishing or the local creeks and rivers. She loves cobia fishing and bottom fishing. She spends her spare time in the winter months with her family in the woods where they hunt, camp and relax. She also likes to dabble in wildlife/outdoor photography. For quiet time she is an avid reader, especially of science fiction/fantasy. 

In order to stay in shape, Dr. Chapman participates in trail running, weight lifting, yoga and hiking. She enjoys participating in local 5k races with her friends when she gets the chance. 

Dr. Chapman is a member of the local Miracle Strip Veterinary Society, Florida VMA, AVMA and AAHA. She is also a Lifetime Member of the Auburn Alumni Association.

Dr. Sarah Ham:

Dr. Sarah Ham was born in Birmingham and grew up in Athens, AL.  She attended undergrad at University of Alabama and Auburn University.  She got 2 degrees from Auburn:  a BS in Animal Science in 2000 and in 2006 a DVM from the College of Veterinary Medicine.  Despite her deep and abiding love for Auburn University Dr. Ham has remained an Alabama fan through it all.  Roll Tide!!

After graduating from vet school Dr. Ham practiced in Texas for a year and then moved to Southeastern Illinois where she worked primarily on cattle for 10 years.  Having enough of the snow and looking for a change, she finally listened to her best friend, Dr. Chapman, and moved back home to the South.  And she is so glad she did!

Dr Ham is married to Jeremy Ham and they have two daughters:  Dylan (born 2008) and Madeline (born 2011).  They have one energetic outside dog, a red bone coonhound named Isabelle and a stealthy tabby mouser, Maddy Cat.   Inside they have a feisty Siamese-cross kitten, Walter; a tabby scaredy-cat, PJ and two Texel guinea pigs: Hazel and Holly.

In her free time Dr. Ham loves to go camping with her family in their pop-up camper where they enjoy hiking, biking, canoeing and fishing.  She also loves gardening, canning and reading fantasy/fiction. Dr. Ham and her girls are also very active in Girl Scouts.

Dr. Ham likes to stay active by running and hiking.  She did her first mud run in Niceville this spring and had a great time!  She hopes to take full advantage of the variety of 5ks and fun runs offered in this area.
