Meet Our Veterinarians

Dr. Mary Williams

Veterinarian

Originally from Alberta, Canada, Mary was born in Edmonton and moved to Lethbridge with her family when her father took a faculty position at the University of Lethbridge. She graduated from high school in 2008 and began her undergraduate education at the University of Lethbridge. She then transferred to the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon where she completed her pre-veterinary requirements and graduated with a B.S. in Biology in 2012.

Mary began her journey in veterinary medicine at Ross University on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts. After completing the pre-clinical courses on the island, she finished her last year of veterinary school at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater and graduated in May, 2017.

Mary enjoys the variety and excitement that veterinary medicine involves. Every case is a new puzzle to be solved and she is enthusiastic about continuing to learn and grow as a new doctor. She has always had a passion for animals ranging from dogs and cats to horses. She grew up riding horses and is hoping to pick up that hobby again now that she has finished school. Right now she shares her home in Bartlesville with one dog, a yellow lab named Hammer who is a retired duck hunting dog.

Dr. Merrijean Becker

Veterinarian

Dr. Becker is a lifelong Bartlesville girl.  Though her father worked in the International division of Phillips Petroleum Company, and she spent many of her early years in São Paulo, Brazil, and Caracas, Venezuela, her family moved back to Bartlesville when she was in 9th grade and she has always considered Bartlesville her home.

When Merrijean turned 16 she joined the Bartlesville Animal Hospital staff, working after school, summers and holidays, as a veterinary assistant for Dr. Grogan.  After graduating from Bartlesville High School in 1988, Dr. Becker attended Oklahoma State University where she completed her degree in Biomedical Science in 1992.  With glowing recommendations from both Dr. Grogan and Dr. Johnson, Dr. Becker continued her education with OSU, earning a coveted spot in their School of Veterinary Medicine.  In 1996, she graduated in the top 10% of her class earning her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.  Throughout all her years at college, she made the commute back to Bartlesville to work summers and weekends at Bartlesville Animal Hospital.

After graduation, Dr. Becker married a fellow classmate and began her career in Tulsa.  In conjunction with practicing medicine, she took on the role of Channel 8 Veterinarian for KTUL and was the “on air” veterinary expert in TV segments with Teri Bowers and Frank Mitchell.  In 2005, she was named “Young Veterinarian of the Year” by the Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association.  While working full time and raising two small children, Dr. Becker pursued 10 years of additional study and in 2007 attained Board Certification with the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. She is currently working on recertification.  Additionally, she was an active member of the Tulsa SE Rotary Club and dedicated to giving back to her community.

After inheriting her childhood home, Dr. Becker returned to Bartlesville and assumed the role of Manager for the Bartlesville Boarding Kennel.  She waited a year and a half for a position as a Veterinarian to become available here at Bartlesville Animal Hospital, and on January 1, 2018 Dr. Becker’s career came full circle back to where her dreams began…at her “Home”.

Dr. Becker has a passion for difficult medical cases, especially in geriatric pets and we could not be happier that she has joined our outstanding team of Veterinarians.

Dr.  Jeffery A.  Williams

Veterinarian

Jeff is a 2017 graduate of Oklahoma State University. He grew up in McAlester, Oklahoma, and moved to Bartlesville in 2018. Along with his skills in wellness, internal medicine, small animal soft tissue, and orthopedic surgeries, Dr. Williams is also certified with the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association and is skilled in both small and large animal chiropractic services.

Jeff has lived in Oklahoma his entire life, spending time as a child in Eufaula, Wetumka, and McAlester. He attended OSU for bachelor’s degree in animal science before attending veterinary school there as well. He spent almost 2 years working in McAlester before moving to Bartlesville Animal Hospital in September of 2018. While in McAlester, he became certified with the AVCA to be an animal chiropractor.

When not at work, Jeff loves spending time outdoors. He uses any excuse to be outside; rodeo, hunting, fishing, or just being with friends. His favorite part of the rodeo and team roping lifestyle is the competition, hard work, excitement, friendships, and atmosphere that surrounds the sport.

Jeff lives with a few pets including Seven a Labrador retriever, a few horses, a handful of longhorn cattle, and the boss of the ranch, a cat named Meredith.
