Tammy has been volunteering with us since May of 2012 – you may have seen her on Saturdays or the occasional weekday. In 2019, she agreed to become a part time technician with us, so you'll be seeing more of her!
She’s originally from Los Angeles and moved to Ohio in 1993 to work for Limited Brands. In 2002 she started volunteering at a local animal shelter, where she discovered her passion for veterinary medicine and animal rescue. Tammy wanted to become more knowledgeable as a volunteer, so she attended Columbus State Community College to achieve her goal of becoming a Registered Veterinary Technician, which she became in November of 2010. She works full time as a Store Inventory Planner during the week, and on weekends can be found working as a Vet Tech for us, for Clintonville Animal Hospital, or training for an upcoming marathon - the L.A.

She moved to Nashville, Tennessee when she was 20, and while there became a mother to her identical twin daughters Mariah and Makenna. Shortly after having them, a bonded pair of stray dogs showed up in her yard. As she was unable to locate their owners, she took them in, named them Beauty and Beast, and cared for them until she was able to find a reputable shelter that would be able to adopt them out together. While it was a difficult decision to turn them over to the shelter, it renewed her resolve to be heavily involved with rescue, and was the main driving force in her pursuit of a career in animal care.
In 2017, Jessica returned to Columbus to pursue her passion. Shortly after returning, she began taking classes at Columbus State Community College to obtain her veterinary technician degree. While performing an internship at Berwick, she found that she was a great fit with our team, and happily accepted an opportunity to work with us. She loves the clinic life, with all of the constant inconsistencies and mysteries it has to offer, as well as being an integral part in helping to care for animals.
Jessica graduated with her Associate’s degree in Veterinary Technology in December of 2021, and passed her her boards in April of 2022, becoming a Registered Veterinary Technician. She has plans of continuing her education by specializing in anesthesia, veterinary western herbal medicine, and by going on to vet school in the future.
Michelle’s favorite quote, one that has guided her throughout her life, is by Anatole France - “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened”.
Thanks to her parents, she’s had a passion and respect for animals her entire life. She grew up visiting (and at times adopting) dogs from the local shelters in San Diego.
Michelle moved to Ohio in the mid 1980s to further her education, and has never left. She met her future husband Bob in Ohio, and they raised four wonderful children with whom she shared her love of animals. While they were growing up, they had many pets including parakeets, a Cockatiel, rats, cats, dogs, and a bearded dragon. Even though the children are grown, Michelle still has two spoiled dogs – Mia, a Tennessee Treeing dog, and Yogi, a pit bull. She also owns an Arabian horse named Marley. She’s "that girl", who never outgrew her “I love horses” phase!
In her working career, Michelle’s best and most enjoyable years have been spent working at a pet boarding facility and at several horse barns, caring for pleasure and show horses. She enjoys working with and around animals, and with their humans who love them!
In her spare time, she enjoys playing with her grandson, cooking, watching action movies, walking her dogs, “barn time” with horse friends, and going on trail rides or, when it’s too cold, indoor arena rides with Marley.
We offer both preventative care services (much like your visits to the dentist), along with dental x-rays and tooth extractions. Good oral hygiene is the best thing that you can do to ensure a longer life, with less health concerns, for your pet. Call us to schedule a dental exam or service.x
Laboratory services are a vital part of the diagnostic process when it comes to veterinarian care. This is because in many cases it is not possible to be able to give a firm diagnosis without undertaking additional tests to confirm the root of the problem. If you have any questions or concerns your vet will be happy to speak to you.x
