"Caring for animals isn't what I do, it's who I am."
Jennifer followed her love for animals into the veterinary field in 2004. She has been working as lead tech and practice manager since 2008. Along with her degree in Biological Sciences, she is certified in Pet Nutrition, a CVA Level 3, and has worked with and owned many exotic pets. Since joining VWC in 2017 as practice manager, she has enjoyed watching our practice grow and our clients become family. Her weekends are spent with her husband, children, and 4 crazy dogs. She won't say which dog is her favorite, but her standard poodle, Linus, has been her fur baby since he was 2 days old.
"Everyone should see themselves the way their dog sees them"
KayLynn joined our practice in 2020 and has been a veterinarian technician for 8 years. She has obtained her CVA level 2 and enjoys attending continuing education courses. She spends her free time at the barn with her horses, or at home with her boyfriend and family and their 2 dogs. She has had a passion for animal care and rehabilitation since she was young and her mom had to tell her not to bring any more animals home. So she fed all the strays and they followed her.

Groomers need a strong love for their work and an infinite amount of patience. Karin is the best example of that. She has over 30 years of grooming experience. She enjoys not only making your animals look their best, but also helping them feel their best. She works closely with our veterinary team to help address allergy issues, skin conditions, coat maintenance, and behavior. Karin moved to Texas in 1983 and has raised her family here. She spends time with them and her dog and cat when she's not busy making your pets look, feel, and smell gorgeous.
"An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language" ― Martin Buber
Niki is excited to have recently jumped back into the veterinary field. Since she would have way too many animals at home if she could, she is very happy to get to spend time cuddling yours. She will be the smiling face you see when you walk in, and you may spot her working on her technician skills with the doctor. Niki is our only born and raised Texan. Her spare time is filled with her kids activities. Most weekends she spends as a soccer mom and mom of 3 dogs.
"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened" ― Anatole France
