Our Dedicated Staff

Christine:  Office Manager

Christine has always been an animal lover and entered the veterinary field in 1997.  Christine is well versed in every facet of veterinary practice, both in front of and behind the desk, and finds great satisfaction in helping to enrich pets' lives and owner awareness.  In her words, "if pet families are well informed in all aspects of their pet's care, the bond between them is enjoyed and experienced to its fullest potential."  As a valuable member of the Happy Pet team, she brings compassion, practicality, humor, and focus.  She is proud to have been a part of the Happy Pet experience since its inception in 2004.  

Andi:  Veterinary Assistant

With over 12 years in the veterinary field, Andi simply loves this profession!  From the joy and adjustments of new adoptions, through milestones and illnesses, to helping pets and their families with end of life care, she feels truly blessed and honored to be a part of it all.  Andi enjoys the individual personalities of the pets and has a particular tenderness towards the seniors- believing that they hold such wisdom and countless stories.  She laughs that younger pets "live in the moment"….. and that can translate into "T-R-O-U-B-L-E"!  She shares her own life with a 9 year old kitty and 12 year old Corgi, and a "trouble-maker" Jack Russell Terrier of her own.  With her knowledge, humor, compassion, and ability to multitask like a PRO, she helps to keep all of us at Happy Pet rowing in the same direction!

Emma:  Registered Veterinary Technician

Emma received her Associates Degree in Veterinary Technology in August 2014.  Her two favorite aspects of practice are assisting in surgery and being able to help pets who are sick or injured.  Emma is a very trusted member of our staff as she has quickly built her skill set by being willing to help and eager to learn.  Above all, she is compassionate and kind.  She has a soft spot for pit bulls and yorkies- and has one of each of her own!  She also has a couple of kitties, a sugar glider, rabbits and guinea pigs!


Jennifer:  Veterinary Assistant

Jennifer has been in the veterinary profession for over a decade.  She is a true gem and a lovely key player of our staff, demonstrating compassion and sensitivity towards each pet and client, and a soft spot for our seniors.  She loves the opportunity to help those who cannot speak for themselves (woof, woof!), bringing comfort to those who need it, and is a sucker for puppy breath!  "Every appointment is different", she adds, smiling.

Taylar:  Veterinary Assistant

Taylar is relatively new to the veterinary field, but you would never know it.  Her many years working at her family’s restaurants on Kelley’s Island no doubt helped prepare her for this new role, and she has transitioned beautifully!  Taylar is a life-long resident of North Ridgeville who married her high school sweetheart in 2017 and loves spending time with her family.  She also shares her home with Vegas, a young Poodle/Mountain Cur mix, and she recently adopted 2 kittens- which brings her cat total to 6!  Taylar loves being active outside and enjoys playing both softball and volleyball.  She is a valued member of our Happy Pet family!
