Graham DiPinto is from the Wilmington, North Carolina area and has always loved the beaches,  marshes and the wildlife that comes with them. Growing up with an Italian immigrant for a father and hog farmer’s daughter for a mother, he learned from a young age what hard work is as both his parents built multiple businesses from the ground up. He got his taste of veterinary medicine through his American grandfather, “Buck” who raised horses, small livestock and bred purebred Treeing Walkers for hunting. Being isolated in the swamps of coastal North Carolina, veterinary care wasn’t the most accessible so most of the work was done by his grandfather who taught Graham many tricks that previous veterinarians had passed down to “Buck”. Graham has had a desire to become a veterinarian since age six and began working at local hospital at age 12 until he left for his undergraduate studies. After graduating from North Carolina State University with a degree in Animal Science: Veterinary Bioscience, he was accepted into Lincoln Memorial University-College of Veterinary Medicine and is a member of the class of 2022. Graham has a passion for both orthopedic/soft tissue surgery as well as practice management and financial operations. He also has a passion for one of the most important aspects of veterinary medicine: the people that are at the other end of the leash. Developing relationships and building trust between pet parents is extremely crucial to Graham and he hopes to carry that over in his future practices. Learning of BHC through financial literacy classes through LMU-CVM, Graham was quickly interested in becoming an intern for BHC to be able to put the passion for business along aside the skill set that it takes to run successful practices.

In his down time, Graham enjoys spending time with his wife, Elizabeth and their two cocker spaniels, Hattie and George.
