Technician SupervisorGeorge Jackson
George came to VCA in September, 2010 from North Carolina. He brings with him more than 10 years of veterinary experience, including emergency medicine. We were thrilled to have George (and his dog Daphne) join VCA Annandale July 2012. George loves helping clients with their behavior questions.
Outside of work George enjoys running, spending time with his family and friends, especially at the beach.
"Ever since I could remember I wanted to care for animals. I remember the days when my mother would make me empty all of my pockets before entering the house, because if she did not all the "creatures" I befriended would end up spending the night inside. I love the appreciation that is expressed across the faces of the pets I see when I have provided some sort of help. I could not see myself doing anything other than working in the animal care field." - George.

Veterinary AssistantDanielle C
Hello my name is Danielle and I have been in the veterinary field for over 13 years. I have been with the VCA family for over 8 years now. I started my VCA career at VCA Barcroft Cat Hospital and was there for 6 years before coming to work with VCA Annandale Animal Hospital. Being in the veterinary field is my passion and what I love to do. I currently volunteer at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria where I foster all the neonates which require 24 hour around the clock care. I am a mother of a 4 year old son who also shares my passion and love for animals. We currently share our home with 3 dogs named Hopie, Dally, and Tiny Tim. We also have a cat name Lilo and a bearded dragon named Spike. I look forward to meeting you and you feline or canine friends when you visit VCA Annandale.
Veterinary AssistantKrystal S
Why I work in veterinary medicine....
I have always loved animals, big and small alike. When I was young my family lived on a racing horse farm in Maryland, and I can remember riding my tricycle through the barns. We have always had at least one family pet for as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until I was 18 that I started to truly find my passion for animals. The first hospital I worked for was an exotics clinic. In a typical day we saw birds, reptiles, rodents and a lot of wildlife. I was even able to help care for a pair of lion cubs. While working there I kept thinking what an awesome experience this was and if I could do this for a living, work would not feel like work, I would actually have a job I loved going to. Fast forward 10 years and I have now worked at several practices from MD to AZ and I still love what I do. I am now pre-vet ant University of MD and will hopefully start vet school in the fall 2014.
Veterinary AssistantTammy T
School: George Mason University
Tammy has been with VCA Annandale since July, 2011. Having worked in the Veterinary field for over 5 years her favorite thing that keeps her smiling are the surprises each day brings. She has a special interest in emergencies and the occasional cat with an attitude.
When she is not at work Tammy enjoys marine biology; specifically shark and turtle research and going to the beach. Tammy has a dog, Brownie and 2 cats, Darwin and Orange Juice at home, which keep her quite busy while going to school and working.
"Since I was 6 years old I knew I wanted to work with animals... Well I knew I wanted to grow up and be a dog...same thing. Since then I have worked with all kinds of animals; from cats and dogs to fish and cows. I came to VCA in 2011 to continue my passion for understanding animals. For the past few years I have realized my curiosity for animals has reached beyond cats and dogs and I have recently started working with aquatic animals.
I am about to graduate from George Mason University and will be working with sea turtles and larger marine mammals, but my heart will always have room for the cuddly cats and dogs of the world. I am here doing what I do every day because I love learning something new every day and always being on my toes with VCA.
At home I have a cat named Darwin who is more like a dog than my actual dog Brownie, who I have grown up with for the past 6 years. Both Darwin and Brownie make up my family as well as my best friends. I recently added Orange Juice who has proven to be the one to try and control the house but without them I never would have made it this far in life." - Tammy.
