Hi all! My name is Cheryl and I joined the Ben White Team in November of 2015. Although new to Ben White I have been part of the VCA family since 2011. I love to hunt and collect all sorts of cool bugs! While strange to some, I do have a degree in Entomology from Texas A&M University..so it's completely normal! My furry family consist of two dogs, Milly & Shepherd and a cat named Patches! During my spare time I enjoy being with my husband Jake and my 20 month old son, Zane. I look forward to meeting all the wonderful pets and clients at VCA Ben White!

Hi! My name is Kelsey and I am on my fourth year working with companion animals. I worked at a no kill shelter for three years with neonatal kittens and parvovirus puppies, as well as counseling potential adopters. I recently began working for VCA Ben White and love the new experience! I am hoping to finish my undergrad and go on to vet school in the future. I absolutely love working with animals and can't see myself doing anything else. My four legged family includes 2 rescue dogs and 3 rescue cats. I look forward to meeting you and your extended four legged family!

Hi my name is Monica Olivera, at the clinic they call me Luna. I've been working at VCA Ben White since February 2013, and so far its been a wonderful experience. However, the real story came about in January of 2011. I was a senior at Akins High School and enrolled in a Vet Practicum class that brought me to start an internship. I am so grateful because not only did I gain my first job but, I also got to be part of the beautiful Ben White Family. I enjoy kayaking and scrapbooking for fun with my loving family. I am currently attending school to become a Veterinarian, however I also love children and a teaching is not a bad idea. I am a mother of three lovely dogs named Ginger, Lily and Samantha. Every day is a precious gift for me and life itself will only tell.
Veterinary AssistantAllyson P
Hi! I'm Ally. My husband and I have two dogs, an Akita (Ogie) and a Border Collie mix (Murphy), and we love them more than anything! We try to take them to the park as much as we can as a special treat -- maybe we'll see you there! I've been with VCA since the fall of 2013. Although my degree is in English, my love for animals drew me to explore the veterinary field. I soon discovered that the entire staff here truly holds each patient's interest at heart. They're truly amazing at what they do, and I'm grateful to learn something new from them everyday! I look forward to meeting you and your pet soon!
Veterinary AssistantKat R
Hi All, my name Kat. I moved to Texas from Seattle, Washington in April of 2013, and lived in Nacogdoches for a year before coming to Austin. I have worked with animals for over 6 years now in both a shelter and veterinary environment. I am the proud owner of 4 amazing kitties; Blake Monty, Pitch Black, Pixel Ray and Gavin Goo. Working with animals has been extremely rewarding for me and I love seeing all the pups just as much as the cats.
