Groomed for Success: High energy neurosurgeon combines love of barns and brains

Drive about 20 miles west of Nashville on I-40, wind around on some country roads, turn up the shady lane marked Aden Branch Farm, pass the two-room, pre-Civil War-era log cabin and pull up at the barn.

This is where Lola Chambless, M.D., ’05, trades her blue cotton scrubs for jeans and cowboy boots. Where she puts down the scalpel and picks up supple leather reins. Where she leaves the sterile operating room for meadows, creeks and horse trails.

It’s this balance (perhaps with a common thread of thrill-seeking behavior) that sits at the core of Lola Chambless.
