    Ellen Clickard
    School: Howard Payne University

    Ellen joined our team in 2003! She lives in Italy with her husband, 2 year old son, Colton, Bunnie, a 13 year old chocolate Labrador, Chance, a 6 year old yellow Labrador, and their horse, Copper.  She graduated from Duncanville High School in 2000.  Ellen enjoys time with her family and friends during her free time.  However, Colton keeps her pretty busy having to follow him around everywhere!!  Over the years, God has given Ellen a realization that this family, VCA DeSoto Animal Hospital, is where she belongs because she gets to help clients and their babies on a daily basis!  We here it said sometimes and she truly believes it, "You can't find a place like this anywhere else!"
