Joey L., Technician and Office Manager

Originally from Tampa, Florida Joey began working as a veterinary assistant in 1990.  He started at a small animal practice and cat care clinic which later developed into a technician position in 1995. He moved to Asheville, NC in 1999 and found a unique teaching position with the Humane Alliance of WNC, a gold standard spay/neuter program, working as a veterinary technician and program mentor helping to train staff from all over the country for spay/neuter programs and providing ongoing mentorships for more than 100 animal welfare and humane groups. During this time he also worked a relief position with the local emergency hospital in Asheville. Joey enjoys emergency medicine for many reasons but the most evident being the variety of cases seen within this particular arena, he is extremely proud to be part of a team of people that deliver both comprehensive and compassionate care to both pets and their caretakers. Joey lives with his chihuahua “Mr. Peepers."  His hobbies include kayaking, hiking, swimming, reading, music and junk food.

Jennifer D., Technician -

Beginning her veterinary career in 1996, Jennifer first began working in Roswell, GA.  Working her way up via kennel and assistant positions to full-time technician throughout the years, Jennifer's veterinary career is diverse with work ranging from private practice and small referral hospital to shelter medicine and university level specialties.  Having grown up in Largo, FL, it was only a matter of time before she returned to the state.  
Being that nerdy kid that loved all things outdoors, Jennifer sought out a college program that matched her interests.  Earning a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies from Rollins College (Winter Park, FL) with a minor in English in 2001 opened doors via the opportunity to experience a semester abroad in Namibia, Africa with Round River Conservation Studies.  Diving headfirst into wildlife conservation working with The Cheetah Conservation Fund, she instantly fell in love with field efforts and hands-on travels. 
Spending the last 11 years in Gainesville, Jennifer has worked for Alachua County Animal Services, The Institute of Veterinary Specialists, and The University of Florida within the specialties of both Oncology and Veterinary Community Outreach, and even got a chance to deploy with The Humane Society of the United States.  She relocated to the Bradenton area in 2015 for a quieter pace of life near the beach!

Christina N. -

Christina came to us from Virginia. Her first job as a veterinary assistant led to a love of patient care and medicine. Interest in veterinary care brought her to pursue a position as a pet nurse for three years in Lakewood Ranch, Fl at a daytime clinic, and she cross trained as receptionist there. After taking time to stay at home with her newborn baby girl, she sought out her position as Bradenton Veterinary Emergency’s receptionist. She is married with one little girl, Lana, and her dog, Oni. A love of pets runs through her family, and she is happy to help you and your pet with whatever you need. Her hobbies include photography, going to the beach, and spending time with family.
