I’m Donna, a California native. I started my career in veterinary medicine by becoming a certified veterinary technician. I gained several years of experience by working in small animal practices. After relocating to Arizona with my husband and two children, I decided I would enjoy working with clients along with their pets. As a client relations representative and front office manager, I worked for a specialty practice in Veterinary Dentistry and Oral Surgery for 15 years. We now call Murfreesboro home and I am excited to be a staff member of the SRVH. Other members of my family are our two dogs “Bucky”, an English Bulldog and “Max” , a Cairn Terrier. In my spare time I create shabby antique furniture with my daughter.

Abby, I am a native of Murfreesboro T.N. I love living in the beautiful volunteer state. I recently graduated from Middle Tennessee State University in 2015 with a degree in Animal Science. In my job I appreciate working and making connections with the boarding animals and their families. I love learning about all animals, but I have a special interest in watching documentaries about wildlife and the natural wonders of the world. I enjoy spending time with my family by going to the movies and reading. I also love traveling. I hope one day to conquer all 50 states!

Mary Lou

Born and raised in North Central Jersey, I relocated to Tennessee in 2000 with my husband and two children. My experience in the Veterinary field started in 2007, as a front desk receptionist at a small animal hospital. I made a brief change in careers for a few years and found out that my passion is working with animals. I am back, doing what I love; I am thrilled to be at Stones River Veterinary Hospital since April 2017. My four-legged children consist of one dog, Levi and three cats, Bo, Sassy and Holly. I continue to meet wonderful, furry, four-legged babies and their owners, and I hope to make their experience a positive one.

My name is Wendy. I am married to my best friend and we have five children: two boys and three girls. I have always had a passion for all God's creatures and have always studied about them. I have been in this field my whole life and take pride in learning everything about my job. I run my own animal rescue, which includes cats, dogs, reptiles, rodents, farm animals and anything small and furry. I have always felt a strong bond with animals and knew it was where God wanted me to be, so I have spent my whole life sharing this with everyone I meet.

Holly, a Texas native, has worked in the veterinary field for many years. The most fulfilling part of her job is nursing sick animals back to health and building relationships with clients, both two-legged and four-legged. While she enjoys working with both cats and dogs of all sizes, she especially loves working with cats and believes almost every cat is perfect!

My name is Kathleen. A Tennessee native, I was born in Nashville and raised south of Nashville. My father is a veterinarian who has been practicing in Tennessee since the 80s. Growing up, we always had any and every type of critter in our house, from the baby bird who fell out of the tree to the dog wandering down the side of the road. Always having a passion for animals and animal health, I have been working in the veterinary field for over 13 years. I pride myself in educating pet owners on how to keep their 4-legged babies happy, healthy, and a part of the family for many years to come.
