Chris Grasham

Chris' journey with Darien Animal Hospital started with a phone call from Dr. Pope "Hey Chris, come help me look at these properties for a veterinary clinic" and the rest is history (Chris and Dr. Pope have been close personal friends for over 30 years.)  Chris' job description includes "Hey Chris can you fix this?", all of the clinics IT needs, building maintenance and animal care as needed.  Chris has an Associates in Business Management from the University of Cincinnati (1992) and is medically retired from the US Army as a Medic 2003-2011.  The seed was planted for Chris' medical career by helping Dr. Pope on his large animal rotation when he was in vet school and then assisting with pulling calves after he graduated.  Chris found home in Brunswick after living in California, Ohio, Missouri, North Carolina, Texas, South Korea and Georgia.  Chris has had many pets over the years including cats, dogs, birds, lizards, snakes, fish, rabbits and turtles, and he currently has a cat "Seki," and a dog "Aeon." He enjoys spending his off time in competition shooting sports, building/fixing computers and most outdoor activities, but yard work seems to dominate as a result of having a big yard on the marsh in the Georgia climate!
