James Ham - Hospital Manager

James Ham joined the Wilkinson Animal Hospital team in 2020 as our Hospital Manager after retiring from his 21 years of proudly serving our country in the military as a Healthcare Specialist.

Having earned a degree in Business Administration with a concentration on Healthcare Management and a desire to help pets and people, he decided to pursue the veterinary profession as his next career.

“I love this profession because it gives me a sense of purpose to be able to help worried parents understand what may be ailing their pets. Our fur babies cannot speak for themselves and we have a great opportunity to be able to speak for them in such a way that enriches their lives.”

James is passionate about building relationships with our clients and developing a team that works well together delivering amazing service to our pet patients and our clients. “I like helping a person see what they might not see in themselves and instill in them the confidence to grow and develop on their own. I love the culture of this hospital that has a feel of family…it makes me excited to come to work each day. I want to continue to create that atmosphere so that our clients experience the same feeling.”

In his spare time, you can find him spending time with his family, hiking, traveling, photographing weddings and amazing landscapes, chasing golf balls around the course, or hanging out with his own fur babies.
