    Valerie B

    Valerie joined our staff in Feb 2014, but she’s not at all new to veterinary medicine.  She has been a veterinary technician for approximately 14 years.  Valerie has been riding horses her whole life and even earned her first broken bone at the tender age of 2 while riding in the snow in her home state of Ohio.   Horses are a large part of her life: she breaks and trains them in her spare time.  Valerie has lived in Florida for 23 years, and as a “local girl”, she was a cheerleader for the USF Bulls.  In addition to her and her husbands 2 Walking horses (Lokey and District) Valerie has 2 Rottweiler’s (Sasha & Reggie), and “a fat Pit bull, Bullet”.


    I love being able to help animals in need. I also like educating clients on pet needs so that can they provide the best care and preventative medicine from occurring.

    Megan E

    Megan has been a part of our dedicated staff since July of 2007. She is a native of New Port Richey, FL. At home, her family consists of Skyy - a sweet pitbull, Bruiser - a macho bulldog, and her 3 cats - Gizmo, Lucy, and Boomer.


    I love working in the animal field. I meet so many new people everyday. It’s very rewarding to have a job that doesn’t feel like a job at all.

    Meliegh P

    Meliegh joined our team in December 2014 after recently moving from Indiana where she worked at a sister VCA for 10 years, she comes to us with 12 years of veterinary experience. She loves animals of all shapes and sizes. She has a full house with her family consisting of a beautiful daughter, 2 dogs, and 4 cats. When she isn't at work you can find her outside soaking up the Florida sun doing yard work, going to the beach, and playing soft ball. I love the happy endings that come along with a sick pet and being able to educate clients on the best care for there pets. I also like all the new pets and people I get to meet at work it almost doesn’t feel like work at all.

    Karen C

    Karen has been part of the VCA family for 8 years. She has always had a great love and passion for animals. Her family is made up of 3 dogs, 6 cats, 2 horses, 4 fish, a wonderful husband and 3 kids. Karen has been married for 23 years. Caring for animals has always come naturally for her and when Karen isn’t caring for our boarding guests you will find her assisting our doctors in the exam room. Her love for animal extends to truly caring about there treatment and well being. When Karen isn’t at work you can find her spending time and riding her horses and planning for the next Halloween. With my love for animal I couldn't imagine doing anything else that would make me even remotely as happy.
