Your Pet's Best Friends
Tammy – Office Manager
I’m blissfully married with two grown children, two dogs, and two cats. I have an associate degree in Animal Science and Poultry and Livestock Technology. Plus, I have vast experience working as a veterinary assistant, receptionist, and now as an office manager.
I’ve been part of the team at Willow Grove Animal Clinic since 2002.
I entered this field because I’ve always enjoyed working with and helping animals and their owners. Being employed here for so long, I feel I’ve come to know our clients like family, and that makes me extremely happy.
The aspect I enjoy the most about my work is building trustworthy relationships with everyone who comes in. Getting to know your pets and your family on a personal level is what makes us unique and helps us give the guidance and support you both need.
In my spare time, I enjoy hunting and fishing. I also love traveling with my family. In fact, one item on my bucket list is to visit Hawaii with my loved ones.
Kimberly – Front Desk
I’m a wife and mother of one. I grew up in Stokes, NC and relocated to Walstonburg, NC about 4 years ago. I love the small town feel where everybody knows everybody.
From a very young age I’ve always had a passion for helping and caring for animals. The best part of my job is getting all the wet kisses!
I enjoy spending my free time outside, especially in the summer. I love going to the beach and playtime with my 13 year old golden retriever and 7 year old australian kelpie. One item on my bucket list is to start a farm for abandoned animals.
Christy – Front Desk
I am a military wife and a mom of two young men I adore. I grew up in the Midwest, but now I enjoy living in North Carolina. I love dogs, and I would have a million if my husband would let me.
I was a client before I came to work at Willow Grove Animal Clinic. Seeing how much they love and care for animals made my decision about working here simple!
The best part of my job is helping you care for your best friend, no matter its shape or size. Assisting people to feel comfortable and relaxed every time they visit is something I genuinely enjoy. However, knowing we offer the best care we can to every client and their pet is what puts a big smile on my face.
Outside of the office, I try to live my life by something my grandfather told me when I was a child: “If that was the worst thing to happen to you all day, you’re doing pretty good.” I’m a book and a music lover. Nothing helps me relax more than a well-written book and some classic rock.
Emily – Veterinary Assistant
I’ve lived in Greenville, NC since starting middle school and look forward to starting a family here.
Animals have always had a special place in my heart, and I am so glad they are a part of my daily life. I’m thankful and blessed to be able to say I am in a career that I love.
The best part of my job is building relationships with families and your furry companions. Even if it’s a one-time visit, I do my best as a healthcare provider to give you the best experience and a feeling of comfort.
In my spare time, traveling to new places and exploring mother nature are things I genuinely love. I also enjoy art, music, and dancing. One fun and interesting fact about me is that I can wiggle my ears!
Lori – Animal Caretaker
I was born and raised in Connecticut. I come from a small family of just me and my two brothers. I went to a two-year college, where I met my future husband, and we’ve been happily married for more than 40 years. We have a son named Jeremy and two amazing dogs, Cinnamon and Pepper.
I always believed there was something unique about how I interacted with animals, and as I grew older, I realized I had found my passion. I feel fortunate to work with all kinds of animals and provide them with the love and care they deserve.
Although my passion for animals drives me to be the best at what I do, I also adore the fantastic group of people I work alongside. Our team is amazing!
Outside of the practice, my hobbies include playing Bingo, hunting, going to the beach, and playing games on the computer.
Katie – Animal Caretaker
I have lived in Snow Hill, NC my whole life. I am currently going to school to become a veterinary technician.
My whole life I have always loved helping and caring for animals. I grew up on a farm and have a couple of fur babies of my own. Taking care of them brings a lot of joy into my life.
The best part of this job is all the love you give and get, also when the owners come pick up their animals and you see the animals’ reaction and excitement.
Outside of the office, I love walking and going fishing when the sun is out. I also love spending time with my family. When I get older, my dream is to have a family and a little farm for my kids to grow up on.
Victoria – Veterinary Technician
I am from a small town called Kinston, NC. I love my family, especially my parents, brother, and papa. We grew up small and never really had much, but family is all we needed. I have two degrees, Marine Technology and recently Vet Technology from Cape Fear Community College. I plan to take my VTNE to become an RVT.
I chose this job for my love of animals. I want to be able to help other families get their pets back home safe and sound. For some, their pets are all they have, and to be a part of their lives and help them is the best feeling in the world.
The best part of my job is being able to meet the clients and patients. I also enjoy being able to help people understand their pets better, and teach them things they don’t know.
In my spare time, me and my dad are round track race car drivers. I love it! Otherwise you’ll see me with my friends and family. One day, my dream is to go skydiving or scuba diving.
Will – Veterinary Technician
I received my degree in Veterinary Medical Technology with honors from Nash Community College. Nash’s VMT program started in 2018 and I was a member of the inaugural class. Now that I’ve graduated, I am continuing to study for the VTNE, the national board exam for the status of Registered Veterinary Technician.
Prior to joining the Nash VMT program, I spent 20 years in the financial services industry. I worked for the same company through two mergers and name changes. I always joke if anyone wrote a book about my life, the title would be “From Banking to Barking.”
For fun, I like to attend concerts, go to movies (especially those about dogs and horses), listen to music, and read books. My favorite movies are the Star Wars series. I also enjoy attending Carolina Hurricanes hockey games.
I am super excited to start my career here at Willow Grove. I plan on being an integral member of the team for many years. I truly admire Dr. Morphis and can definitely learn a lot from her. I have a dog named Daisy that I rescued from the Nash Animal Shelter and enjoy spending time with her.
The staff was amazing! They treated our baby just like he was their own. He is already feeling better, and we just left the office 10 minutes ago. I highly recommend Willow Grove Animal Clinic!
BJ H. (Patient's Owner)
Your animals are in safe hands at the Willow Grove Animal Clinic.
We know pets quickly become part of your family (and ours too!). We’ve made it our purpose to honor that special relationship whenever you visit our clinic.
Dr. Susan has created a unique experience where our team’s love for animals is translated into every treatment and service. Whether they need a “good boy” or a quick belly rub, we’ll ensure they stay calm and can feel our genuine concern.
What’s more, we enjoy playing around with your puppy and cuddling with your kitten to help them (and you) feel safe and sure that they can trust us.
We are the most compassionate, fun, and loving veterinary family in Farmville, NC!
