Dr. Jennifer Godman is a North Carolina native, lifelong horse owner, rider, and a passionate equine veterinarian.  She obtained her undergraduate degree from North Carolina State University and her veterinary degree from the University of Glasgow School of Veterinary Medicine in Scotland. Following vet school, Dr. Godman completed a one-year hospital internship with Peterson Smith Equine Hospital + Complete Care and a six-month Equine Internal Medicine Fellowship with Hagyard Equine Medical Institute in Lexington, Kentucky. This led to a three-year Residency in Equine Emergency & Critical Care at The Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center. Her clinical research focus was emergency abdominal surgery and laminitis. Following her residency, she worked in private practice for 4 years providing Elective & Emergency Surgery, Internal Medicine, & Sports Medicine Services to North Florida.  Always trying to advance her knowledge and training to provide the utmost patient care, Dr. Godman completed the Equine Veterinary Medical Manipulation (Chiropractor) course and Acupuncture certification at the Chi Institute where she fell in love with Integrative Medicine.  In early 2020, she moved back to North Carolina and has worked both at home and throughout the USA treating many top level performance horses. The results of adding integrative therapy to traditional sports medicine has led to the establishment of Integrative Veterinary Medical Solutions in 2021 with the focus on the equine athlete.
