Veterinary Nurses


I am in my 6th year of roller derby and I will not stop until my dream of having an eye patch and broken appendage are satisfied. I love my cats. AJ likes food but hates water. Louie loves food but Louie hates humans, the sun and other living things. He also hates thunder, affection and definitely eye contact. “the end”


I am a CVT that has been at the hospital since early 2011. I have been in the veterinary field since 2005. When not at work I am taking care of my 2 chihuahuas and french bulldog. I also volunteer/foster for the French Bulldog Rescue network. My hobbies include hiking, running, hunting, reading and traveling.



I have two gorgeous boys, Diesel and Nugget. My hobbies include reading and fishing. My favorite basketball team is the San Antonio Spurs. I love my job because it allows me to spend time with different types of animals.


I love people and enjoy being with them. I like spending my time engaged in crafts and scrap-booking when able. Despite my love for people, my passion is seeing the faces of all the animals that come in each day…this is what makes me happy.

Office Assistant


My first job was volunteering at an animal clinic as a Girl Scout at the age of 12. I returned to the animal health industry 25 years ago. My husband, Justin, (who is very understanding) and I share our home with a rotating door of sick or elderly rescue wiener dogs!

Lab and Pharmacy Technicians


I started at Mellina Animal Hospital as a kennel technician in 2015. I am now working in the laboratory and pharmacy. It has always been my dream to work with animals and I am so thankful to be here. My favorite animals are cats. I have 4 of my own that I love to death. In my spare time I like to play video games, draw and binge watch shows on netflix.

Doctor/Nurse Assistant


When I’m not hard at work to provide the best service possible, you will most likely find me at home working on some random computer project, playing video games or even giving one of my 4 cats a hard time. I started around 2013 in the kennel and have worked my way around the hospital, so I know this place inside and out. I am currently being trained as a technician. I have always wanted to work with animals so there is no place I’d rather be.


I love drawing, crafting, classic cars and protecting mother earth. “Animals over people any day!”
