Dr. Sophy Jesty

I received my doctor of veterinary medicine degree from Cornell University in 2001. I worked for the next 4 years with horses at the University of Pennsylvania, mainly interested in equine cardiology and its intersection with athletic performance. I received board certification in large animal internal medicine in 2006. Immediately after this training, I completed a small animal cardiology residency at Cornell University and received board certification in 2008. I spent two additional years at Cornell University pursuing research in cardiac regenerative medicine. I, then, spent two years working in private practice as a cardiologist in New York City. I accepted a faculty position in Cardiology at the University of Tennessee. After four years in Knoxville, I left UT to go back into private practice. I began working at AVS/REACH in 2015.

Outside of work, I love exercising and being outdoors (especially at the beach). I enjoy home projects and yardwork. I love spending time with my wife Val, young daughter Emi, 2 dogs Biscuit and Carlos, and three cats Scout, Olive, and Bug Bug.
