Jordan

Jordan

Receptionist

Jordan brings with her a strong customer service background by managing restaurants and working in tech start ups as well as the Perot Museum in Dallas TX. Her vibrant personality and ability to keep things organized are her strong points. She is often the first smile that you will see when you enter our hospital. She was born and raised in Houston Texas and comes from a long line of animal rehabbers and rescuers. Growing up with multiple dogs, cats, snakes, turtles, parrots and an occasional raccoon, opossum, duck or bird started her love for all living things.

For many years, before she met the love of her life, she wrote, sang and recorded music for her own band. She built her own music studio where she recorded her own EP. She shares her home with a Swiss mountain dog, Pollo, Tibetan terrier, Cooper, a Greek tortoise named Grootie, a Bearded Dragon named Gordito and 4 fresh water fish. She shares her little animal kingdom with her husband and three kids.

Shawn is a native Texan with lifelong ties to Round Rock. Her love of animals comes from being raised with many dogs and cats, and spending summers with her grandparents and their sheep, goats, and chickens. She has moved and lived all over, taking full ownership of a gypsy soul. As a veterinary receptionist, her joy comes from building relationships with the clients and their loved ones. She enjoys the teamwork with her coworkers, and can never get enough of all the fur-babies. Outside of work at the hospital, Shawn is also an artist, with pet portraits being one of her main staples. When not at work, or painting, she enjoys geeky stuff, arts and crafts, books, and music of all kinds.

TK

TK

Technician

TK started tech school in 2008. Starting a family delayed her finishing but her attention to detail got her into a lead Anesthesia position at a specialty hospital. Even though she spends most of her time in surgery, her favorite part of her job is bonding to her patients and she does an excellent job calming down our anxious and fearful pets. She prides herself on owning/taking responsibility for the fur babies placed in her care. She grew up in El Paso, Texas and came to Austin in 2003. She lives with her husband and three sons along with a 10 yr old Catahoula mix named Dakota, a Miniature Australian Shepherd named Sky and a nine year old cat named Goldie. Her family loves fish and has many fish tanks in her home. Halloween is her favorite holiday and if she could, she would celebrate it all year.
Carissa

Carissa

Technician

I moved to the Austin area around 25 years ago from West Texas. I grew up in Carlsbad, NM, and Midland, TX. I met my husband shortly after moving here in 95’ and we’ve been together ever since. We have a 9-year-old daughter, Makena, and 2 dogs. Zoe, a 4-year-old Boston Terrier, and Isla, a 5-month-old Boxer. I’ve had Boxers in my life for the past 25 years. Love the smooshie faces!

I started working with animals when I was 22, and have helped out in all areas of the hospital. From working in the kennel to being a technician, and helping out at reception and inventory manager. I had my daughter in 2011 and decided to stay at home with her. Once she started preschool, I went back to taking care of animals again through walking and pet sitting, and now back to being a technician. I even helped out with horses for a while. I absolutely adore being around animals and definitely missed my time away. One of my favorite things about my job is being able to help calm a nervous pet, and hopefully, make them feel more comfortable during their visit.

When I’m not working with animals, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, reading, and staying active. I love watching scary movies and true crime shows. Yoga and Pilates are some of my favorite ways to exercise, and taking my pups on a hike around my neighborhood. Hawaii is a favorite travel destination for my family. My husband and I were married there in 2007, and I’ve been lucky enough to travel back several times. My daughter is named after the beach we were married at, Makena Beach. Hawaii is definitely my happy place and I would love to live there someday!
