Christie McHughes, DVM
Dr. Christie McHughes was born in Harahan and grew up in Amite, Louisiana on a farm with plenty of animals. Caring for animals was a part of her life from early on. She graduated from Covington High School in 1996, and attended Southeastern Louisiana University acquiring a degree in biology with a concentration in zoology. She was accepted to Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine directly after graduating SLU. Her concentration was mixed animal veterinary care including small animals and equine. After graduating LSU SVM in 2004, she began her small animal general practice career in Covington and has practiced at 2 other small animal hospitals in the Covington and Mandeville areas.
Dr. McHughes always wanted to be a practice owner, but timing business ownership with family life was always a balance. She and her husband of 15 years, Sean, have three little boys ages 11, 8, and 6. In 2014, Dr. McHughes and Sean purchased the property where Crosspoint Veterinary Hospital went from being a thought to being a new build, state of the art veterinary hospital.
In September 2015, Crosspoint opened its doors and the rest is history. Veterinary Medicine and client services should always be top priority according to the vision of Crosspoint Veterinary Hospital. The staff at Crosspoint is beyond superb and your furry family member will always be our number one priority. Dr. McHughes is very passionate about veterinary medicine. She serves on the board of the Louisiana Veterinary Medical Association as a member at large and is the incumbent President of the LVMA. She will always keep continuing education for herself, her staff, and her clients as a forefront in hoping to achieve an exceptional veterinary medical practice. Dr. McHughes cannot wait to meet you and your family members.
