VCA Augustine Loretto Animal Hospital

Client Services

  • Receptionist


    Julie joined the clinic in May 2011, with previous experience. She was born and raised in Jacksonville, and has been married since 2010. She has two cats, Dash and Sweetie.

    I love taking care of the animals (especially cats!) and working to make sure owners are best informed. Julie

  • Receptionist


    Pam has been living in Jacksonville since 2005, starting at the clinic that year. She has an Akita-mix named Benjamin, and two tabby cats (Daisy and Tiger). She has a daughter that attends UNF, and her husband works at FSCJ!

    I love having a job I can walk to; I have always been fascinated by cats and I am  thankful the hospital  gives  me an opportunity to work with them. Pam

    Crystal Cochran

    Crystal is a Florida girl who has grown up with cats, dogs, horses and pigs. She loves being outside in the Florida Sunshine when she isn't working.



    I started working at VCA Augustine Loretto Animal Hospital in July of 2014. This is truly a dream job for me. The chance to work with animals big and small is such an inspiration. I have always loved animals , having  the opportunity to help  make them well is such a wonderful experience. I have 3 dogs that are my spoiled little babies. They are what make my day so great and are so awesome to come home to everyday.  Crystal

    Lucinda moved from the Orlando-area in 2006, and started at the clinic as a technician, but now works as both tech and receptionist. Lucinda is a 2013 graduate from UNF, but wishes to never stop learning! She enjoys SCUBA diving, travel, and hanging with her awesome German Shepherd Dog (Anja), and fluffy kitty, Yahtzee.

    I love being able to see medicine help any animal in need; all creatures (great and small) are very important to me!  Lucinda
