Our Careteam

Julie
Pet Stylist
Julie has been passionate about animal care and grooming ever since she was young—she recalls working on her own family pets’ hairstyles when she was only a teenager. Julie’s ambition never wavered! In total, she’s been grooming for 36 fulfilling years and is proud to serve the area’s pets and animal parents here at Oak Hill Animal Hospital.

Julie is a Georgia native and has been grooming pets locally for the past 20 years. She’s a certified Master Pet Stylist, pet stylist instructor, and a certified behavior specialist, and also serves as a pet dermatological consultant.

In her time away from work, Julie enjoys practicing her photography skills, swimming, horseback riding, and spending time with her family. She has three children and a grandson, and loves going on new adventures with them whenever the opportunity presents itself!
Sandi
Bookkeeper (Himalayan cat pictured)
Sandi has been enjoying the company of pets nearly all her life, so she knows just how valuable animal companions are to the families of the area. She’s thrilled to be able to use her analytical and mathematical skills to improve the lives of others—four- and two-legged—every day! Sandi serves as the clinic’s bookkeeper.

Sandi is originally from Arizona, and has been involved with the financial community since her time serving in the United States Army. She further developed her skills by earning a degree in mathematics, and she has served military service members as a tax consultant. Sandi joined the Oak Hill Animal Hospital family in April of 2015 in order to combine her passion for animal care with her knack for numbers, and hasn’t looked back since. Her favorite part of the job is working alongside a team of compassionate animal-lovers just like herself!

Sandi and her husband have seven children and six grandchildren. Currently, they live with a rambunctious feline friend named Libby who tends to act more like a dog than a cat. When she isn’t spending quality time with family or enjoying Libby’s antics, Sandi likes staying active in her church community, practicing yoga with her husband, and quilting.
Kate
Veterinary Technician
Kate has always been fascinated by science, especially biology and medicine, and she’s felt an intrinsic connection with the earth’s creatures ever since she can remember. Veterinary medicine is where those two passions intersect. For Kate, getting to use her skillset and knowledge to better the lives of not only pets, but those who care for them, is a dream come true!

Kate grew up in New Jersey and started working as an Emergency Medical Technician there during her senior year of high school. She attended college to earn her Bachelor’s degree in public health education, continuing to work as an EMT during her studies, then moved to Georgia after her husband accepted a job with a local fire department. Kate worked as an Advanced EMT while her husband finished his fire training and graduated from paramedic school, and then she decided to chase her dreams—that’s when she joined the Oak Hill Animal Hospital family!

Kate has been a member of the clinic team since March of 2019 and finds that she has a special interest in running diagnostic tests in the lab. Finding connections between the clinical signs her patients present with and the results she finds in the lab is extremely rewarding for her! Kate also loves to work directly with hospitalized pets and help their progress improve day after day.

Outside of veterinary medicine, Kate is interested in crafting, cooking, reading, music—she sings and plays the trombone—and spending time with her husband and their pets. The couple shares their home with a Carolina dog mix, Sheldon; Turner the Black Mouth Cur who is the tough guy of the family; a loving Pit Bull mix named Austin who wants nothing more than to sit in someone’s lap and give kisses; and a stoic bearded dragon who goes by Jörmugandr.
Renee
Kennel Technician
Ever since she can remember, Renee has wanted to better the lives of pets in whatever way she could. Ultimately, she would like to open her own animal sanctuary! That’s why becoming a part of the Oak Hill Animal Hospital family was so important to her—Renee gets to help animals stay healthy and happy on a daily basis.

Renee joined the Oak Hill Animal Hospital team in May of 2019 and has been caring for the pets of the area ever since. She serves as a Kennel Technician, and her favorite part of every shift is getting to meet new animal personalities on a regular basis. Nothing beats knowing that her efforts make a lasting difference for the pets and families of the area!
Tara
Manager & Senior Veterinary Technician
Tara owned and operated a 10-acre hobby farm for nine years, where she trained and boarded horses and bred Nigerian Dwarf goats. She loved what she did, but always wanted to learn more about the medical side of animal care. That’s what inspired Tara to join the veterinary world! She couldn’t be happier to serve the area’s pets and animal parents alongside a team of fellow animal-lovers here at Oak Hill Animal Hospital.

Tara grew up in Gwinnett County, Georgia and has lived in the state her whole life. She was first introduced to the veterinary field by a friend of hers who worked for a large-animal veterinarian, and Tara immediately knew that she wanted to learn more. She began working here at Oak Hill Animal Hospital in the spring of 2019, and now helps pets and their owners on a daily basis as the Manager & Senior Veterinary Technician.

Around the hospital, Tara now cares for the day-to-day operations making certain things run smoothly. She’s also passionate about working with nervous or aggressive patients to help them stay calm and comfortable during their time here at the hospital.

When she’s not here at the hospital, Tara enjoys caring for her wonderful young daughter, and spending time with her animals at home. She has four cats named George, Shiloh, Bagel, and Macey; a long-haired Chihuahua named Nemo; Lexi the Border Collie; a playful German Shepherd named Okami; and Marshmallow and Strawberry round out her pack. Tara also keeps a Paint Horse named Nevada, and a loveable miniature donkey who goes by Honkey.
Donna
Patient Services Coordinator
After many years spent helping patients in the human healthcare field, Donna wanted to make a change. She’d always wondered what it would be like to work hands-on with animals, and she decided to take a leap of faith! She couldn’t be happier with her choice. Donna is proud to help the area’s pet parents and animal companions as a Patient Services Coordinator.

A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Donna joined the Oak Hill Animal Hospital team in September of 2019 after transitioning from a job in human emergency medicine. Her favorite part of every shift is the face-to-face interactions with pet owners and their furry, tailed, or scaled companions.

When she’s not at work, Donna likes cheering on the University of Georgia’s football team and doting on her own pets at home. She has three rescued cats—Anastasia, Kudjo, and Kirby—as well as a Yorkie puppy named Little Debbie.
Tina
Veterinary Technician
Tina has been helping pets and animal parents as a member of the veterinary profession for more than 26 years. It felt like her calling in life from the very beginning, and that passion hasn’t let up since. Tina couldn’t be happier to continue bettering the lives of animals as a Veterinary Technician with the Oak Hill Animal Hospital family!

Tina is from Hampton, Georgia and remained at her very first clinic for a rewarding eight years. She moved on to an emergency hospital in Dekalb for a time, and then worked at a few day-practice hospitals before moving to Missouri with her family. There, Tina worked at a clinic in Kansas City until she moved back to her home state. She signed on at another local hospital, where she served for five years, before joining the team here at Oak Hill Animal Hospital in March of 2020. The rest is history!

As a Tech, Tina’s favorite part of her work is serving as an advocate for animals who can’t speak up for themselves. She loves being able to “read” her patients in order to give them the help they need.

Outside of work, Tina likes spending quality time with her grandkids, doing arts and crafts, and doting on her own pets at home. She has a German Shorthair Pointer, RzR; a Miniature Pinscher named Harlee; Sassie the aging Rat Terrier; and a domestic shorthair cat who goes by Rum.
Imani
Veterinary Assistant
Imani always knew she was destined for a career in the world of animal care. She recalls sneaking Animal Planet programs as a little girl when she was supposed to be in bed—that unwavering passion for the earth’s creatures just never quit. Now, Imani helps pets and animal owners on a daily basis. She’s a member of Oak Hill Animal Hospital’s Veterinary Assistant team!

Originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Imani graduated college in Decatur, Georgia before attending Fort Valley State University to study veterinary technology. She worked in a dog grooming salon during her schooling, giving her invaluable hands-on experience in the world of pet care. In the summer of 2020, Imani signed on here at Oak Hill Animal Hospital to complete her clinical externship—she has been a member of the hospital family ever since.

As an Assistant, Imani particularly likes interacting one-on-one with the area’s pet owners. She’s also fond of how much she gets to learn on a daily basis. She finds that her job always keeps her on her toes!
Stephanie
Veterinary Technician
Stephanie used to work in the human healthcare field. While she loved what she did, she realized her true passion lay somewhere else: in the veterinary field. Stephanie knew that she wanted to combine her background in medicine and her passion for pets! Now, she gets to live her dream every day: she’s a Veterinary Technician with the Oak Hill Animal Hospital family.

A native of Conyers, Georgia, Stephanie started her veterinary journey as a Kennel Technician and a Room Assistant before becoming the Lead Surgical Technician at another clinic. When it came time to move on, she joined the team here at Oak Hill Animal Hospital and serves the area’s pets and animal parents as a Veterinary Technician, Room Assistant, and the clinic's Kennel Supervisor.

Medically, Stephanie loves to help pets hands-on during surgical procedures, and she loves the way her work constantly keeps her on her toes. She also enjoys making the clinic’s boarding pets feel as comfortable and welcomed as possible in the kennel area.

When she’s not at work, Stephanie can be found riding her four-wheeler, fishing, traveling, volunteering at a local wildlife center with her mother and aunt, and doting on her own pets at home. She has five dogs—Rosco, Daisy, Doodles, Buttercup, and Pebbles—as well as a trio of loveable cats named Franklin, Gabby, and Simba. She also has a turtle, Lucky, the elder statesman of the group.
Christina
Receptionist
Christina is a natural caregiver—before joining the Oak Hill Animal Hospital team, she worked in pediatric medicine. When the time came to look for a new position, Christina had a thought: why not combine her love of medical care with her passion for animals? Now, she gets to help pets and their owners daily as a member of the Oak Hill Animal Hospital family!

Christina grew up in Conyers, Georgia, and began her career as a phlebotomist at an after-hours pediatric clinic in McDonough. Next, she took a job at a primary-care office in Gwinnett, serving as a back-office medical assistant and a triage nurse, before joining the Oak Hill Animal Hospital team in the fall of 2016. As a receptionist, Christina particularly loves interacting with pet owners and their loved ones on a regular basis; she just never knows what might walk through the door at any given moment! She looks forward to getting cross-trained in the near future so that she can work hands-on with the area’s pets.

When she’s not tending to pet owners’ needs here at the clinic, Christina can be found journaling and writing, working on homemade decorations and projects, reading, listening to music, and enjoying the company of her own animal companions. She shares her life with three pets: Callie the cat, who insists on having the curtains opened each morning before Christina leaves for work; Lhasa Apso/Pomeranian mix Chewbacca—Chewy for short—who looks like a miniature version of his namesake; and Gabby, an affectionate black-and-white shorthaired cat.
