"While I was in college in Kentucky in the late 1970s and early 1980s, I was trying to figure out God's plan for me. I felt called to serve. I felt called to serve the ones in our world who seemingly have no voice. The ones who need an advocate. So, for me, that meant kids (a pediatrician) or critters (a veterinarian). Well, critters it was and it has been, and continues to be, an exciting and ongoing adventure!"
Dr. Eileen Langdon received her degree in veterinary medicine from Auburn University in 1986. She joined the Willowrun family and health care team as an associate veterinarian in 1990, and became a partner in 2007.
Dr. Langdon and her husband Mike have three children: John Michael, Hunter and Megan. Together as a family, they run a 3rd generation farm in the McGees Crossroads community. Livestock and crops are raised on the farm where preserving its natural resources are always the first priority. As the 2010 winner of the NC Conservation Farm Family of the Year Award, they take stewardship very seriously. One of their favorite hobbies is tending to their purebred and crossbred cattle herd of Red Angus and Simmental. Look them up at the NC State Fair where they show their purebred cattle!
