Stephanie

Hi! My name is Stephanie. I have worked at the Animal Health Clinic since February 2012 as a receptionist/ technician assistant.  I am a huge animal lover but my favorite animals are tigers and other exotics. I own a bearded dragon named “Mushu”, a Japanese Chin/Bichon mix named “Max”, a Maine Coon named “Dutchess” and a Siamese mix named “Bella Boy”. Usually on my days off I like to take my dog for bike rides or I’ll hang out with my cats. I also like to play poker, pool, my violin and go out to dinner.

Cori

Cori

Hi my name is Cori, and I have worked at the Animal Health Clinic for a little over a year now. My main role at the clinic is to work at the front desk as one of the receptionist. I enjoy my position because I am able to communicate with the clients and reassure them their pets are in good hands while at the clinic. Although I love all kinds of animals, my favorite would have to be dogs, specifically Boston Terriers. Outside of the Animal Health Clinic, I enjoy spending time at the beach, hanging out with my dogs, going to the gym, and spending time with my family.

 

Michael

Michael

I have worked at the Animal Health Clinic as a technician since 2002 when I was in ROTC in high school. After I graduated I became a Marine, served for 4 years and then came back home and to the clinic, because I enjoy working with animals, especially dogs. At the Animal Health Clinic I am the morning person 6 days a week. I get to work early and make sure all the animals get medicated, weighted, fed, walked, and bathed as needed, I also set up for appointments and surgeries. I keep the clinic moving efficiently by always being prepared. My favorite pet is my Boxer. When I'm not at the clinic, I like to spend time with my dog, my friends and family and my Harley. I also love surfing.

Reece

Reece

I have worked at the Animal Health Clinic since July of 2011. I am technician at the clinic and assist both veterinarians with examinations and various diagnostic and surgical procedures. I also care for and treat the animals’ independently over the weekends. My favorite pets are my horses, but to me they are more like my kids than my pets. In my free time, wait, what free time? Ok, when I'm not at the clinic, or in class, or studying in hopes of one day becoming a veterinarian myself, and having technicians of my own to help me care for the animals’, I like to spend time with my horses, reading and going to the gym.

Initially I came to the Animal Health Clinic in 2002 to explore the option of becoming a Groomer, I discovered here that I loved grooming! I then went to Grooming School full-time and became a Master Groomer. Once I achieved this goal I stayed on at the Grooming School and taught for several years. I returned to the Animal Health Clinic in September of 2008 as a National Certified Master Groomer with significant experience. I enjoy enhancing every single quality on the outlook of our canine/feline customers. My role is to provide them with the best service and experience, using the highest quality grooming products on the market and attending Grooming Shows & Dog Shows to keep up with the latest styles and industry trends.
