Dr. Linnea Bredenberg

Dr. Linnea Bredenberg was born in Baltimore, MD, but grew up in upstate New York near Syracuse. She received her undergraduate degree at Wellesley College before moving to South Georgia in 1992 where she attended school. She then enrolled in UGA Veterinary School to work on receiving her doctorate. She met Billy (Dr. Roumillat) in 1998 in her senior year of vet school and graduated in 1999 from UGA. They then moved to the Low Country in 2000 where Linnea started veterinary work locally, and she and Billy were married in 2001 (the secret is out!). After years of practicing veterinary medicine together, in March of 2012, Linnea and Billy proudly opened their own practice together. The clinic and their children keep them busy. Linnea’s theory is “Who needs hobbies if you have 2 kids and 16 animals to take care of?” But in any spare time, Linnea does find she tends to her orchard and garden.

Dr. Billy Roumillat, a James Island native, received his undergraduate at Clemson with a degree in biology. He then received his veterinary degree from St. Georges University School of Veterinary Medicine. After attending school, he and Linnea (Dr. Bredenberg) moved back to Charleston in 2000. Both Billy and Linnea practiced veterinary medicine for over ten years. He and Linnea then opened Riverbank, their own state-of-the-art veterinary practice on Johns Island. Billy and Linnea live on Johns Island with their two children, William and Blynn. Billy’s love for animals translates into his work as well as his home life; he and his family have 10 chickens, 2 goats, 2 horses, 3 dogs, 2 cats, and fish. Billy’s hobbies include cooking, enjoying music, spending time with his family, and water sports.
