Mobley Veterinary Clinic Staff Profiles

Dr. Summer Mobley, DVM

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 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 UT Knoxville for pre-veterinary medicine courses. He graduated from UT Knoxville in 1974 with a BS in Agriculture. He was then accepted to Auburn University in 1974, and graduated in 1978 with a degree in Veterinary Medicine. He has been practicing at his father's clinic since then.

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 of the year, he enjoys the Pensacola Beach area and the Caribbean when he is able to set and stay there. He took up 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.

Dr. James Fullerton, DVM

Dr. Fullerton was born in the town of Arab, Alabama. He grew up on a small farm, where his family owned a variety of animals, including mules, cattle, dogs, chickens, and rabbits. As a child, he was constantly involved in their care, and saw many animals die due to tragedy and disease and wanted to do more. Going into veterinary medicine gave him that chance.

Dr. Fullerton graduated from Auburn University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1978. After graduating, he accepted a preceptorship at Mobley's Clinic and has now practiced here for 34 years. Dr. Fullerton is particularly interested in the surgical aspect of veterinary medicine, especially orthopedic and abdominal surgery.

He has been married to his wife, Anita, for 33 years. They have three children and three beautiful grandchildren. At home, he and his wife own two dogs: Rocky and Maggie, and two cats: Lucy and Pearl. Rocky is a little Papillon and Maggie is a mule hunting/pug mix. Lucy is a delicate little cutie and Pearl is a bruiser grey kitty. All four run the household now that Dr. Fullerton's children are grown.  Dr. Fullerton loves the outdoors, and when he is not working he enjoys hiking, exploring, biking, and taking photographs. He has been to many places in the US with his camera and hopes to explore even more in the future.

Cassie Poteete

Veterinary Technician Assistant
Cassie was born and raised in Madison, TN and currently resides in the East Nashville area. As a child, she lived on her family's farm in Madison, so she was constantly around animals. This background made her want to seek out solutions for suffering animals and to make them happier as a result. She has been working with animals professionally for nearly seven years. In the past, she worked as an Assistant at Mobley's for three years, then spent three years at the Nashville Humane Society. Now, she has since re-joined the Mobley team. Animals have primarily taught her patience. As they cannot speak directly, she recognizes that it is up to pet owners and healthcare professionals to help solve any issues an animal is going through, even when this process may be  frustrating, she exhausts all possibilities for the sake of the pet, and the unconditional love they provide their owners.

Outside of work, she also pet-sits for out-of-town pet owners, and assists with any pet-emergencies which may arise for her family and friends. She enjoys hiking and traveling, and loves to take her two dogs to Shelby Park. She has a pit-bull named Cheyenne and a rescue from her days at the Humane society, "Mama Dog", named so because she was found pregnant at a truck stop. She cares for her family's pets, Andy, Joe, Roxy, Sophie, Toby, and Rastis, many of which she has herself rescued. In the future, she hopes to learn more and more about animals and in doing so, save as many as she can.
