Dr. Carlen Ledain was born in Queens, New York and is of Haitian descent. She moved to South Florida as a teenager. She started out her adulthood as an interior decorator and knew something was truly missing. She decided to enroll in a local university and a few months later a life changing event happened for her. She unfortunately lost her young cat to a terrible accident. At that moment she knew that the fulfillment she was missing was caring for the welfare of animals. She completed her Bachelors of Science in Biology from Florida International University in Miami, FL and graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine on the island of St. Kitts and Nevis in 2017. Dr. Ledain spent two and a half years living the beautiful island life and studying hard. She completed her clinical year at Auburn University School of Veterinary Medicine in Auburn, Alabama.

After graduating, Dr. Ledain moved again for a short term internship in Akron, Ohio and then worked at a small animal general practice nearby for almost two years before moving to the beautiful Charlotte area. She has joined The Veterinary Hospital of Davidson in 2019 and is starting her journey studying integrative medicine under our mentorship. She is very eager to be part of our hospital and is excited to take care of our adored pets.

During her free time, Dr. Ledain loves reading, drawing/painting, and salsa dancing. She can also be found hiking with her pup Dex or having a glass of wine cuddled up with her cat Jolie while watching scary movies.  She truly enjoys traveling and has been to amazing countries such as Egypt and Peru, to name a couple.
