Joey L., Technician and Office Manager

Originally from Tampa, Florida Joey began working as a veterinary assistant in 1990. He started at a small animal practice and cat care clinic which later developed into a technician position in 1995. He moved to Asheville, NC in 1999 and found a unique teaching position with the Humane Alliance of WNC, a gold standard spay/neuter program, working as a veterinary technician and program mentor helping to train staff from all over the country for spay/neuter programs and providing ongoing mentorships for more than 100 animal welfare and humane groups. During this time he also worked a relief position with the local emergency hospital in Asheville. Joey enjoys emergency medicine for many reasons but the most evident being the variety of cases seen within this particular arena, he is extremely proud to be part of a team of people that deliver both comprehensive and compassionate care to both pets and their caretakers. Joey lives with his chihuahua “Mr. Peepers." His hobbies include kayaking, hiking, swimming, reading, music and junk food.

Jennifer D., Technician

Beginning her veterinary career in 1996, Jennifer first began working in Roswell, GA. Working her way up via kennel and assistant positions to full-time technician throughout the years, Jennifer's veterinary career is diverse with work ranging from private practice and small referral hospital to shelter medicine and university level specialties. Having grown up in Largo, FL, it was only a matter of time before she returned to the state.

Being that nerdy kid that loved all things outdoors, Jennifer sought out a college program that matched her interests. Earning a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies from Rollins College (Winter Park, FL) with a minor in English in 2001 opened doors via the opportunity to experience a semester abroad in Namibia, Africa with Round River Conservation Studies. Diving headfirst into wildlife conservation working with The Cheetah Conservation Fund, she instantly fell in love with field efforts and hands-on travels.

Spending the last 11 years in Gainesville, Jennifer has worked for Alachua County Animal Services, The Institute of Veterinary Specialists, and The University of Florida within the specialties of both Oncology and Veterinary Community Outreach, and even got a chance to deploy with The Humane Society of the United States. She relocated to the Bradenton area in 2015 for a quieter pace of life near the beach!

Christina N.

Christina came to us from Virginia. Her first job as a veterinary assistant led to a love of patient care and medicine. Interest in veterinary care brought her to pursue a position as a pet nurse for three years in Lakewood Ranch, Fl at a daytime clinic, and she cross trained as receptionist there. After taking time to stay at home with her newborn baby girl, she sought out her position as Bradenton Veterinary Emergency’s receptionist. She is married with one little girl, Lana, and her dog, Oni. A love of pets runs through her family, and she is happy to help you and your pet with whatever you need. Her hobbies include photography, going to the beach, and spending time with family.

Autumn S., Certified Veterinary Technician

Im originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico where I worked for 8 years at Veterinary Emergency and Specialty centers of New Mexico as a Surgical and Internal Medicine Technician and then found myself in Management. I became Lead Emergency Technician in 2012 managing a 3 doctor sister location in Rio Rancho, NM. I am a big believer in patient advocacy and love working in the Intensive care unit. The best part of being a technician for me is being a voice for that animal and being able to provide low stress handling and quality patient care. Over the years I have also done some work with exotics and wildlife and hope to dabble a bit more.

After relocating to Tampa, FL with my husband and 3 children I was eager to continue my career in emergency medicine and Im happy to do so here at BVE. I have a love for Florida because of its diversity, beauty and family oriented activities. My Family and I spend our free time exploring all the nature parks, beaches, islands and taking "Val" our 9yr old boarder collie mix on our adventures.
