Client Service ManagerDiana Kennedy
Born and raised on the Jersey Shore until I was 18 and moved with my family to South Florida. I have two grown sons, 2 cats and a dog. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, going to local festivals, concerts, reading and collecting anything to do with the "Wizard of Oz."
I have worked in the vet field as a receptionist for 15 years now. I’I've chosen this field and position because I not only love working with pets but I also love working with the owners. Working for VCA Wiles Road Animal Hospital allows me to be confident that the pets are getting the best care and the clients minds are put at ease because of the quality of care our doctors and staff provide. I admire the fact that we are able to receive the most up to date information that we are able to pass on to our clients. Seeing a client not only come in with a smile on their face but leave with a smile on their face means we did our job, and that’s why we’re all here!
Client ServiceTracey Dougherty
I have been with VCA since 2006. I love my time at the front desk assisting our clients. I am the proud mother of a son, Brian and we share our home with three cats, Ari, Squeak and Keani. I love spending my free time painting, visiting art museums and attending Brian's concerts.
Why do I believe in VCA?
To be perfectly honest, I knew nothing about VCA when I was first hired, only that I was desperate for a job & yes, I love animals. What I would learn in the years to come is my "Why".
I have learned that the doctors are amazingly dedicated.
The leaders constantly inspire me to be better.
Co-workers commit daily acts of kindness.
Everyone really cares about what we do & everyday brings a chance to make a difference.
I have also learned that I love people as well as animals!
I believe in VCA whole-heartedly!
Oh-& I am not just an employee, I am a client because my animals deserve the very BEST!!

School: Howard University, BS in Health Sciences
Born and raised here in South Florida, I recently graduated from Howard University. I share my home with my dog I resuced last year. In my spare time I enjoy paddle boarding, playing volleyball, cooking and drawing.
I have had many blessings in my life, but none like the opportunity to
work with such a great team here at VCA Wiles. I graduated with my degree unsure of what I wanted to do until the summer after college. I had my first rescue experience with my dog Bella, and I'm so honored to say she is the reason why I am pursuing my dreams in studying veterinary medicine. Outside looking in, one would think I'm taking a major risk in changing my career path, but I know it will be most rewarding because I can honestly say it is effortless to wake up every morning and work with animals and their owners that love them so much.

Originally from Augusta, Georgia, I moved to South Florida in 1995. I enjoy spending time with her family and friends. I share my home with three dogs Trina, Goofy ,Taz and one cat Dante.
Growing up, I have always had a love for animals. I traveled a lot and my pets always were there by my side. As I grew older, my interest in helping animals and working with animals became who I am. Working with VCA gives me the opportunity to do what I love, help me further my career in the veterinarian industry and work on a more personal level with clients and their pets.
