From working in the laboratory to working in vaccine clinics, Brian has over 15 years in the veterinary field. He can be found greeting customers at the front desk with a smile as big as his personality. In his off time, he can be found riding his motorcycle or volunteering in the community. He's even our local Buddy the Elf!
I was born and raised here in Melbourne before I adventured to Gainesville, FL for school. I started my dream of being in veterinary medicine in 2019 at a family-owned practice there in The Swamp. I have 3 rambunctious huskies, a lab and a feisty cat that my world revolves around. I'm excited to be back in my hometown working at EGVH. I can't wait to meet all our wonderful clients and be a part of your 'fur babies' care!
I retired from USAF after 20 years of service. I started working in veterinary medicine immediately following retirement and have enjoyed every minute of it! I own a farm with horses, chickens, ducks, emus, cats and dogs, so it only makes sense that I would be in vet med. In my off time, I enjoy carriage driving and horseback riding.
I have always loved animals and knew since I was a little girl that I wanted to work in this field. I graduated high school with my associate degree and straight from graduating I enrolled in the veterinary technician program in eastern Florida. I have been a vet tech since early 2022 though recently had my beautiful baby boy so I had to put a pause in my career for him. I missed working and came back as soon as could, I am proud to be apart of this wonderful team.
I’m really into cars, especially modding them. Computers are something I love and come naturally to me. Prettiest thing on earth besides my car would definitely be a nice park or a space full of greenery. I have two American Bully's and Two Sphynx Cats.
