Danielle Moore Kettelkamp DVM, MPH (aka Dr. Moore)
Dr. Moore grew up in upstate New York in the Adirondack mountains. She is a 2002 graduate of Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She has an extensive research background, and her work is published in the Journal of Parasitology. She is an experienced practitioner in clinical medicine, emergency medicine, and soft tissue and orthopedic surgery. After 14 years of working in private practice in North Carolina, her desire for a new challenge prompted her to enroll in the University of Iowa Master of Public Health program for practicing veterinarians. She completed her Masters in 2018 while working for the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service as a Supervisory Public Health Veterinarian at the Shenandoah Valley Organic poultry plant in Harrisonburg, VA. She also completed a work detail with the Applied Epidemiology Service branch of the USDA working as a surveillance epidemiologist.
When the unique opportunity to step into a partnership role with Dr. Erin Barney and Longleaf Veterinary Hospital presented itself, the decision to return to North Carolina was an easy one. While her husband will be working full time at the clinic, Dr. Moore will be splitting her time between the clinic and working overseas. She is so excited to be joining the team!
When not working, Dr. Moore enjoys outdoor recreational activities with her veterinarian husband Don, and two teenage sons. She loves to travel and does so every opportunity she gets. The most recent adventure was a family trip to Madagascar. Dr. Moore and her husband also have a passion for home renovation and recently completed the restoration and renovation of a 1930s farmhouse in the Greensboro, NC area.
Dr. Moore has had Great Danes over the years, but now has two small dogs as pets; a rescued geriatric Chihuahua named Ricky, and an energetic miniature dachshund named Finn.
Away from work, Dr. Kettelkamp enjoys traveling the world with his adventurous wife and boys. He and his wife have travelled to 6 of 7 of the world’s continents. He has been a commercial pilot for years and enjoys flying numerous types of aircraft. Dr. Kettelkamp also enjoys weight lifting, jogging and attempting to keep up with his active wife and boys.
