I was born in Oklahoma into a military family and spent the first 10 years of my life moving. I lived in Alaska for four years when my dad retired. We moved here to Austin and I was able to finally keep a pet. I grew up in the city as well as the country so my love for animals is for large and small. I’ve always wanted some horses and goats. I absolutely love goats. I graduated from Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology in Denver, Colorado with an Associate Degree in Applied Science in Veterinary Technology in June 2014. I have worked in both small and mixed animal clinics. I love relaxing and spending time with my 11 year old dog, Daisy Mae. She’s my shadow. My favorite hobbies are sewing, quilting, baking gluten and dairy free treats (I have Celiac Disease), reading classics novels, drawing, and hiking. I’ve also known Chris since I was 18 when I adopted Daisy Mae, so getting the chance to work with him is really cool.
We are currently offering two appointment options:
1) CURBSIDE: you may call upon arrival and a tech will meet you at your vehicle to retrieve your pet. The doctor will perform an exam and call you to discuss treatment options. Payment will be taken over the phone and your pet will be returned to you along with any medications, food, etc.
2) IN-CLINIC: you may accompany your pet into the exam room, as before. Please note that you will be asked to wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you. We also ask that you try as much as possible to maintain a 6 foot distance from other clients, staff, etc. All employees will be wearing masks and all techs/doctors will be wearing gloves.
If you opt for an in-clinic appointment and the lobby becomes crowded, please let the receptionist know you are present and wait outside or in your vehicle until we can get you safely into an exam room.
We are taking employee temperatures daily and asking employees who feel ill to self-isolate at home and contact their healthcare provider.
In addition to our pre-existing sanitation protocol, we are now sanitizing door knobs, pens, clip boards, etc. between each client.
We are encouraging all clients not scheduled for an appointment with the veterinarian (i.e., tech appointments, picking up meds/food, etc.) to stay in the car and call to pay over the phone. We will send someone out with the meds/food or to bring your pet inside and back out to you.
