Bo Williamson grew up traveling the world. His father was an Air Force fighter pilot from Louisville, Kentucky, and that explains his birth in Texas, travels to Germany, Mississippi, New Mexico, Nevada, and Okinawa. With lots of family in Kentucky, the Williamsons returned to their home state in 1965. After high school, Bo attended Centre College and majored in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, graduating Cum Laude.
A love affair with animals and people led to Auburn University and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1981. After graduation, he headed west to Torrington, Wyoming and a five man mixed practice for several years. Deciding he wanted to try a specialty practice, a four man dairy practice in upstate New York was the next stop. Both were exceptional experiences and led to the decision to return to Kentucky to purchase two practices in Elizabethtown.
Heartland Veterinary Clinic and Elizabethtown provided the perfect opportunity for professional growth and community involvement for fourteen years. During that time, Dr. Williamson participated in 4-H, Boy Scouts, Rotary, Hardin County and Lincoln Trail Boards of Health, a veterinary radio program, local and state Veterinary Medical Associations, as well as the American Animal Hospital Association, AVMA, and AAFP.
Family obligations prompted the sale of his practice in Kentucky after fourteen years, and moves to Florida, California and finally to Cincinnati. He recently sold his shares in a small animal practice after five years as a partner. With ten state licenses, he has continued to do some relief work in several states. In addition, he works with My Veterinary Career as a matchmaker for practices and associates, is the President of the Cincinnati Veterinary Medical Association, and has begun Ventures in Veterinary Acquisitions with his long time friend, Dr. Chuck Keiser.
In his spare time, he enjoys investing in the stock market, veterinary practices, and real estate, as well as home brewing beer, hiking, wine tasting, and traveling.
