Our Dedicated Staff

Christine:  Office Manager

Christine has always been an animal lover and entered the veterinary field in 1997.  Christine is well versed in every facet of veterinary practice, both in front of and behind the desk, and finds great satisfaction in helping to enrich pets' lives and owner awareness.  As a valuable member of the Happy Pet team, she brings compassion, practicality, humor, and focus.  She adopted her senior rescue dog, Weaver, in 2021 and is proud to have been a part of the Happy Pet experience since its inception in 2004.  


Andi:  Veterinary Assistant

In the veterinary field since 1999, Andi simply loves this profession!  From the joy and adjustments of new adoptions, through milestones and illnesses, to helping pets and their families with end of life care, she feels truly blessed and honored to be a part of it all.  Andi enjoys the individual personalities of the pets and has a particular tenderness towards the seniors- believing that they hold such wisdom and countless stories.  She laughs that younger pets "live in the moment"….. and that can translate into "T-R-O-U-B-L-E"!  There is always a rescue cat or dog (or both!) that has the good fortune to live the good life at Andi's.  With her knowledge, humor, compassion, and ability to multitask like a PRO, she helps to keep all of us at Happy Pet rowing in the same direction!


Emma:  Registered Veterinary Technician

Emma received her Associates Degree in Veterinary Technology in August 2014.  Her two favorite aspects of practice are assisting in surgery and being able to help pets who are sick or injured.  Emma is a very trusted member of our staff as she has quickly built her skill set by being willing to help and eager to learn.  Above all, she is compassionate and kind.  She has a soft spot for pit bulls and yorkies- and has one of each of her own!  She also has a couple of kitties, a sugar glider, rabbits and guinea pigs!

 

Jennifer:  Veterinary Assistant

Jennifer has been in the veterinary profession for over a decade.  She is a true gem and a lovely key player of our staff, demonstrating compassion and sensitivity towards each pet and client.  She has a soft spot for hounds and shares her home with a hound dog, 4 cats and a rabbit.  She loves the opportunity to help those who cannot speak for themselves (woof, woof!), bringing comfort to those who need it, and is a sucker for puppy breath!  "Every appointment is different", she adds, smiling.


Taylar:  Veterinary Assistant

Taylar is relatively new to the veterinary field, but you would never know it.  Her many years working at her family’s restaurants on Kelley’s Island no doubt helped prepare her for this new role, and she has transitioned beautifully!  Taylar is a life-long resident of North Ridgeville and loves spending time with her family.  She also shares her home with Vegas, a young Poodle/Mountain Cur mix, and she recently adopted 2 kittens- which brings her cat total to 6!  Taylar loves being active outside and enjoys playing both softball and volleyball.  


Kelsie:  Registered Veterinary Technician

Kelsie knew she wanted to work in the veterinary field from a very young age.  The gift of helping the helpless spoke to her, and she loves being an integral part of the human-animal bond.  She began her studies in high school and earned her degree from Tri-C in 2017.  Kelsie has worked in veterinary emergency and specialty clinics and has a wide range of impressive skills as a result.  She is obsessed with anything Disney (her words!), and as a college student she participated in the Disney College Program.  She shares her home with 2 cats, Pumpkin and Boo.
