    Natasha Belton

    Natasha joined VCA Pets Are People Too in March 2009 & has been a great addition to our team. She brings a wealth of knowledge in pet nutrition. She is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the hospital, but enjoys being a technician and working hands on more than anything.
    She truly has a love for the "pets" & the "people" too!
    She brings great enthusiasm to work every day & exceptional client service is definitely one of her strong points.

    "I come to work for the learning experience, continued education, relationships built with my fellow employees, and, of course...the PETS!  I have a love for animals and truly care most about their experience here at the clinic.  I want to make sure that they have a positive and stress free visit as much as possible.  We are their voices and it's very important to me that they are cared for to the best of my ability.  Their health and comfort are my top  priority."

    Lucy Horton

    Lucy came on board with VCA Pets Are People Too in September 2009. She has been one of our main overnight emergency Technicians for over 1 year now. It's comforting to know she is here overnight to care for our hospitalized patients.

    "I work at VCA Pets Are People Too because pets and their people are my passion.  Our canine companions and feline friends make our lives better and being able to help them when they are sick or hurting brings me joy.  The team here is awesome and everyone's passion for helping pets makes my job truly a pleasure."

    Yvette joined the VCA team in 2011 and recently transferred to our location from Gwinnett.  She has been working in the veterinary field for several years with both large and small animals.  In her spare time she volunteers at A.W.A.R.E. (Atlanta Wild Animal Rescue Effort)

    "I have alwyas known I would work in the animal field.  I started by volunteering at A.W.A.R.E. in 2008 and enjoyed the wildlife knowledge I gained.  I then bgan working at a large animal veterinary practice in 2010 in Jersey, GA.  I enjoyed the experience of working in large animal medicine.  I began working at VCA Avalon Heart of Gwinnett, a practice that focuses on exotics and pocket pets, to gain diversity in my career.  I liked the challenges presented and the experience helped broaden my skills as a veterinary nurse.  I'm now the overnight emergency nurse at VCA Pets Are People Too Veterinary Hospital.

    My home life is kept busy with my beautiful daughter, Nadine Elizabeth, who was born on March 14th, 2013 and my other "kid," Charlie. (my dog)

    Kim McCray

    "Veterinary medicine was not my original plan in life.  I was going to be a lawyer.  I fell into this profession by accident 10 years ago and never left.  Animals are my passion!  I can't imagine doing anything else."

    "I am a very motivated open book and this field allows me to soak up knowledge everyday. I enjoy the challenge and responsibility it takes to make a difference in an owner and pets life on a day to day basis. How many people can say they do that at work. The everlasting stressful conditions humble and remind me why I shouldn't take things for granted and should be thankful. This is a passion of mine in which I do want to grow. We save lives as a TEAM everyday that's why I come to work. Our pets are the number one priority. They're people too! And we all love our furry friends!"
