A 1981 graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Mili Bass founded Village Veterinary Clinic in Farragut, TN in 1982. She is board-certified by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners, with Canine & Feline specialty.

In addition to running a busy, AAHA-accredited practice, she has served her profession through organized veterinary medicine. Dr. Bass was the first UT graduate and first female to sit on the Board of the Tennessee Veterinary Medical Association, as well as the first UT graduate and first female to be appointed to the Tennessee Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners. She currently is the Tennessee Delegate to the AVMA House of Delegates.

Dr. Bass sold her practice in 2003, and currently works as a relief veterinarian at Village Veterinary Clinic & Laser Center, and at practices in Hawaii and the Caribbean. She also serves as an ABLE facilitator at UTCVM.

Prior to becoming a veterinarian, Dr. Bass, whose undergraduate degree from the University of Alabama was in Journalism and English, was a TV news reporter and anchor, and also wrote a gourmet column for Metro Hampton Roads Magazine in Virginia. She and her husband, Richard, lived in the United Kingdom while he completed a post-doctoral program in Computational Mechanics, (and she rode horses, mucked out stalls, and was generally lazy).
