Getting to Know "Doc"
Dr. Everett Mobley was born and grew up in Kennett. Horses were his father's only hobby and horses sparked his first interest in veterinary medicine.

She taught high school social studies in Columbia until graduation in 1978. They moved to Pocahontas, Arkansas, and went to work for Dr. Dwight O. Creach, in the picturesque foothills of the Ozarks.
In 1979, the Mobleys returned home to Kennett and began operating Kennett Veterinary Clinic in the old building put up by Dr.Bill Baker in 1948. Roberta Baker worked with them and they benefited greatly from her thirty years of experience as a veterinarian's wife. 1984 saw the construction of the present hospital and the birth of their daughter Blair. Their son Tom was born in 1986.
