Hi there! My name is Brooke and I finished my veterinary assistant program almost 4 years ago. I took a break from working when I had my son and I’m so happy to be back doing what I love! I have 3 dogs of my own, and with the help of my son, they always keep my on my toes. I was born and raised in Georgia, and ended up here in Clarksville as my husband is in the military. I grew up in a rodeo family and have had dogs my entire life so I’m very excited to be working in a clinic that offers exotic care! I’m excited in exploring the exotic world and other animals I haven’t gotten the pleasure to be around until now. I can’t wait to meet you all and your lovely babies!
The military brought Brittany and her husband to Clarksville 12 years ago. Brittany has had an enduring love for all animals since she was a young girl, always taking in stray dogs and even stopping to help escort turtles across the busy roads of Galveston, Texas. She stays active on all local pet pages always trying to make an impact in our community. Brittany looks forward to coming into work everyday, especially if she gets to talk to a new feathery friend. When not working you can catch her watching her two sons play baseball, boating with her husband and caring for her 4 dogs and cat. Her endless smiles help lighten the overall atmosphere at OVAH and we are ecstatic to have her as part of the team!
