Preddy Creek Animal Clinic - Our Staff




Rebecca is our Licensed Veterinary Technician and has a passion for animals! She comes to us after working many years in Emergency Veterinary clinics and always remains calm when faced with our most critical cases. You will find Rebecca assisting our doctors during your pet's visit to the office and she also oversees the care for our hospitalized and surgical patients during their time here at the clinic.

When not at work Rebecca enjoys spending time with her family and catching up on her favorite Netflix shows. Rebecca's busy household also includes a cat, Havanna Brown. 




 Kat is one of our veterinary assistants and is another local Virginian. She has been involved in the veterinary industry for several years before coming to join the Preddy Creek Animal Clinic team. 

Kat enjoys educating clients on patient care and helping with surgical procedures. 

Outside of work you can still find Kat surrounded by animals at home. 



Heather is our client relations specialist and is typically the first one to greet you on the phone and when you come in for your appointment. With many years of experience working in the reception area of the veterinary industry Heather was a perfect addition to our team. 

When away from the office Heather can be found tending to her sheep on the farm, hiking with her dogs and enjoying the outdoors. Heather's household includes her 3 dogs; Grover, Jess and Neil. 




 Elizabeth is another one of our dedicated Veterinary Assistants and you can find her helping our doctors and technician with patient treatments, diagnostics and care throughout the hospital. With over a decade of veterinary care experience she has a large amount of knowledge to share with all of our clients when questions arise. 

When not at the clinic Elizabeth can be found hanging out with her Beagle Champ, her three cats and the family rabbit. Elizabeth is a talented baker and can often be found trying out new recipes or baking up a sweet treat to be shared.  



Elise is the clinic Practice Manager. She graduated from Delaware Valley College with a degree in Zoo Science. Born and raised in Earlysville, VA, Elise has come back to central Virginia to live and has been at the clinic since we opened in 2011. Before coming here she interned at several zoos across the country including working with two elephants at Little Rock Zoo in Arkansas.

A passion for training animals from the mundane to the unconventional has led Elise to training a wide range of species from giraffes to chickens. Dogs started the training obsession and led her to the current hobby of dog agility. She actively competes with several dogs in dog agility and recently added a Kooikerhondje puppy to start training in agility.

When not at the agility field, Elise is usually out hiking with the two dogs she lives with or judging dog shows around the country. 




Xavier is one of our kennel attendants and helps keep the clinic running behind the scenes. While he doesn't have any pets at home he makes sure to to give all of our patients plenty of love and attention during their time at the clinic. 



Pam is a part-time Veterinary Assistant who lives with a much loved menagerie. Pam helps keep the books straight and appointments running. When she's not helping at the clinic or working her full-time job she is at home knitting and enjoying her cats and dogs.
