Dr. Chmaitelli, a Houston native, spent ample time at his grandfather’s ranch as a young boy, where he was tasked with feeding and medical treatments for the cattle. These responsibilities and experiences put him on a lifelong path towards Veterinary Medicine. He graduated from South Houston High School in 1993 and went on to attend Texas A&M University. He briefly walked on to the football team before realizing more important goals academically and becoming involved with the TAMU Singing Cadets. Dr. Chmaitelli obtained early acceptance into veterinary school at Texas A&M and graduated in 2000. Along with GOVC, he owns A to Z Exotics and Capture, which provides services to African Game ranches across the state. To this day he still enjoys his profession and has learned to balance it well with life. He enjoys playing, piano, guitar, and singing, but has also found time to stay active by playing semi-pro rugby for Houston United (and has been awarded Clubsman Of The Year twice!).
