Dr. Nikki Graham

I grew up on a small farm in Bloomington, Indiana.  My early years were spend surrounded by animals, and I always knew that I would someday become a veterinarian.

I attended DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, and graduated with a B.A. in Zoology in 1981. I then graduated from veterinary school at Purdue University, and moved to New Jersey in 1985.  I originally thought that I would spend a year or two in New Jersey, but I’m still here! (and loving it!)  On August 1, 1989, after 4 years of veterinary practice in New Jersey, I opened the Nottingham Animal Hospital.

My husband Joe and I are the parents of 3 children:  Joe (26), Abigail (24), and Amy (22).  We are caretakers for our crazy terrier mix, Bridget, Abby’s adorable dog Jessie, and our 2  kitties, Finn and Duncan.

I think veterinary medicine is the greatest career in the world.  Every day is different; every day brings new challenges and interesting cases.  I enjoy treating internal medicine cases and geriatrics, and I particularly enjoy interacting with our patients’ owners, many of whom I consider friends.

When I am not at Nottingham, I spend as much time as possible with my family.  My son Joe currently lives in Arizona, and is a cook. My daughter Abby graduated from Mount Holyoke College, and will be attending law school in the Fall of 2023. Amy is a recent graduate of  Hofstra University, where she won 3  National Championships with the Hofstra University Dance Team. When I am not at work, I can be found reading, knitting, or dreaming of traveling.
