Dr. Summer Mobley
Dr. Mobley was born in 1951 and raised in the East Nashville/Madison area. His father, Dr. Ralph Mobley founded Mobley Veterinary Clinic in 1950. His father, mother, and family friend Sam Mitchell all parented him, spending much of his childhood at the clinic. As a teenager, he began working at the vet clinic before and after school and on weekends. When he began college, veterinary medicine was a natural path for him to follow.
Dr. Mobley attended Belmont University, MTSU, and University of Tennessee Knoxville for pre-veterinary medicine courses. He graduated from UT Knoxville in 1974 with a BS in Agriculture. He graduated from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1974 and has been practicing at Mobley Vet Clinic ever since.
At home, he and his wife Mary have an Australian Cattle dog and a Border Collie. Being herding breeds, their favorite pass time is herding each other and futilely attempting to herd the birds, ducks, herons, geese, and squirrels that frequent their yard. He also has two gray stray cats, Lucky Kitty and Gray Kitty who have adopted him and apparently feel that their accommodations are satisfactory to their stray cat taste. Outside of work, Dr. Mobley enjoys anything that involves the water. From April through October he enjoys the lake, water-skiing, boating, and simply watching the water flow. In the colder months, he enjoys the Pensacola Beach area and the Caribbean when he is able to set and stay there. He took up a guitar a few years ago and practices (but not necessarily plays) on a daily basis. As he has grown older, he enjoys reading and studying history more than ever before.
