Brynn, Kennel Technician
I was born and raised in Raleigh and recently moved to Hampstead in 2016 and love the Wilmington and surrounding area for the beaches. I love animals because they have life long bonds with people and each animal is unique in their own way. I have had some past experience working at another local boarding and play facility. I also have 2 cats and a dog of my own. Once I was introduced to AAH, I thought it was a great opportunity to get my foot in the door at a veterinary office and obtain more knowledge to pursue a career in the veterinary field. I hope to get my Bachelors degree at UNCW then go to NC State to get my DVM.
Fiona, Kennel Technician Supervisor
I was born in Alexandria, VA but then moved to Raleigh when I was in elementary school. I relocated to Wilmington at 19 and stayed here since. I originally moved here for school but have loved visiting the area since I was a little girl. I love all animals but dogs are my absolute favorite and I love that they are honest and lovable. The reason I chose to work at an animal hospital is because I want to be surrounding by dogs! I ended up here at Atlantic Animal Hospital because there was a friend that told me about it and I felt like I would make a good asset to the clinic as a whole. My animal care experience originally started with me as a dog trainer which helped me learn and connect with dogs and their behavior. I currently have 2 dogs of my own, Lacey and Luna as well as a cat named Aramis. One day I hope to run an animal rescue/foster group and foster kids in hopes that they will help make each other whole again
Tiffany, Kennel Technician
I was born in Wilmington and though I have travelled all around but always end up back home in Wilmington. The unconditional love animals show for us drove me to a career with them. I have always been around animals from fostering, rescuing and owning. Some personal experiences I have had came from moving around because you learn to adapt to change and it helps me to learn to say goodbye when needed such as finding a forever home for fostered pets. I currently have 2 dogs, Dexter and Ruby as well as a cat Oliver. I also have 3 turtles and a leopard gecko. My long term goal is to establish my own no kill shelter that allows animals to live out the wonderful life they deserve.
Donna, Kennel Technician
I was born in Winston-Salem, NC but have moved all over including Oklahoma, Tennessee and a variety of cities in North Carolina. I chose Wilmington to get a fresh start on life but mainly for the warmer weather. I love animals, for all the obvious reason such as unconditional love and devotion, the puppy kisses and sometimes if you are lucky their goofy grins. I love how they always know when you are sad and want to make you feel better. I wanted to work at Atlantic Animal Hospital because I wanted a place that would help me reach my career goals, gain hands on experience and if you love your work, it never feels like work. I have experience in volunteer work for varies animal species, basic obedience training, doggie daycare facilities and am certified in animal CPR. I have 2 dogs which are named Dutchess and Tank as well as an outside cat that adopted me as their own plus my little gerbil named Joey.
Gabi, Kennel Technician
Having been around animals all of my life, working with them seemed like a natural career path. I enjoy photography and am currently studying this at Cape Fear Community College. My career hopes are to utilize my photography interest in a branch of the military. Meanwhile, I enjoy my life loving my 3 dogs, Lucy, Miley and Finley and my cat, Bailey and spending my days caring for the animals of Atlantic Animal Hospital.
