Veterinary Assistants & Clinic Receptionists

 

 

Kona's sitting on the couth with her tongue lolling out

Tamara, Assistant:

 

I joined the practice in 2008.  It was my love of animals and wanting to pursue a career in veterinary medicine that drew me here.  In addition to my degree from IUPUI, I've attended a veterinary technician program and many continuing education classes.  I particularly enjoy working with some of the more reluctant patients, behavioral issues and seeing our sick patients walk out healthy.  I have fostered and rescued many dogs and cats.  I also work with autistic and special needs adults.

Sharon, Receptionist:

 

I joined the practice in 2009.  In my prior life, I was a hair stylist for over 13 years.  It was my deep love and interest in dogs and cats that guided me towards a new career at a veterinary specialty center.  After working there for several years, I was drawn to the idea of general practice which offers the opportunity for building long term relationships with clients and their pets. I found that in WVC!  I am especially interested in animal dermatology, which includes food and seasonal allergies. When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my dogs Bella and Waffles, or you may also find me visiting Ohio State University and watching my son play Golf. 


 

Aria, Donna's most friendly hedge hog

Donna, Receptionist:

 

I joined the practice in 2010.  The practice I previously worked with closed and I'm happy to have found another clinic where people care about pets and their owners.  With over thirty years experience working at vet clinics as a receptionist, I continue to enjoy helping our wonderful clients.  Over the years I have had the opportunity to further my knowledge by attending many continuing education classes and state meetings.  When I am not working, my own menagerie beckons and calls. It includes multiple cats plus unusual pets like mice, sugar gliders, hedge hogs, a chameleon and a bearded dragon!


Suzy's long haired beautiful black cat named Clayton

Suzy, Assistant:

 

I first met the incredible staff at WVC in December 2010 as a client.  My many pets needed a new veterinary clinic and I immediately felt at home here.  In March 2012, I joined the WVC family as a veterinary assistant.  Since then, I have enjoyed building relationships with all of our clients and caring for their incredible animal companions.  I am particularly interested in cat behavior. At home, I find it very interesting the way that they interact with one another, our dogs and my family.  When I'm not working, my family and I spending a lot of time gardening or enjoying nature.  Our favorite family activity is camping


Leia

Jenna, Receptionist:

  

I joined WVC in March of 2018. Since I was a child I've been drawn to animals and have always had a strong desire to work with them. My first experience in doing so was with my first dog - Otis, who was a black lab; together we participated in 4-H. Since then I have continued to seek work involving animal health. My experience ranges from PetSmart, to local boarding facilities and veterinary clinics. Through my work, my 9 year old son has also acquired a love of animals. In my spare time, I volunteer in the food pantry at my church. I also enjoy spending time with my family, which includes my two dogs; an American bulldog mix named Anakin and a pit mix named Leia.

Crystal, Assistant:

 

I joined Westfield Veterinary Care at the end of July 2019.  I was drawn to this practice because it is small and has a family/home feeling that permeates throughout all the interactions of those working here.  That attitude and the quality of care, with the pet's best interest in mind, have made WVC a great place to work.  I have 3 years experience in working in the veterinary field.  I have worked with rescues all my life which has given me an array of experience with animals experiencing various health issues.  During my free time, I love to spend time with family, friends,  and animals, as well as, reading and watching Netflix.  I also like taking my dog to the dog park, going for walks and helping with the Indiana Reptile Expo by taking care of reptiles, birds, snakes, amphibians and rodents.


Kelly's Dog
Kelly, Assistant:

 

I joined the practice in December of 2019. I  had worked with several of the doctors previously and was excited when the opportunity to work with them full-time came available.  I have worked 11 years in the veterinary field and really enjoy working with clients and their pets. When I'm not working I enjoy running and reading. 


Rocky the poodle
Amanda, Receptionist:

 

I joined WVC in February of 2019; little did they know I had wanted to be a veterinarian since I could talk! I first met the staff when I brought my dogs in for a wellness exam and an assistant saw my curiosity for veterinary medicine throughout the appointment, and she handed me an application. I have been exposed to animals my whole life and have been on the path of veterinary Medicine for as long as I can remember, but sometimes life has a different plan for you. However, I still find that communicating with someone in regards to their pet is a personal strength for me and I'm glad I have the opportunity to continue to do that here at WVC. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my poodle, Rocky, and binge watching old re-runs of Friends.
