    *************************

    My mother was from Eastland, Texas, and my father was born in Cleburne, Texas. He was in the Air Force for 32 years so we travelled a lot, but we had our family farm in Ranger where I spent all my summers and a little high school.

    From 1974-1976, I was at Tarleton State University, and then from 1976-1979 I was at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine for my doctor of veterinary medicine. I spent five years in the Army as a veterinarian, serving in Washington state, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and biological warfare medical research at Ft. Detrick, Maryland. I also had reserve activation duties at Ft. Hood and various posts from 2004-2006.

    Since 1984, I have had a veterinary practice in Glen Rose. My career in Glen Rose has covered exotics at wildlife ranches, livestock, and small animals. I’m currently on the Chamber of Commerce and just finished a term on the Glen Rose Economic Development Corporation. I’ve been a trustee on the local school board, president of baseball and football associations, and president of the Extension Service Executive Committee, among many other committees in the 27 years of living in a small town.

    I look forward to active discussions with you in an open format!

    About Fredda Jones

    Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.
