Like most everyone of my coworkers, the unconditional love of animals is what has drawn me to a career in the veterinary field. Growing up in Spivey's Corner, NC, there was never a shortage, and variety, of animals surrounding me. I loved the trips to the local veterinarian with our pets and watching the advancements in veterinary medicine over the years. While attending UNC- Wilmington for Environmental Science, I volunteered with Paws 4 People where I was able to help train service dogs. In addition to this experience, I have worked in customer service and animal care at a doggie daycare facility and have a menagerie of personal pets which include,5 dogs, 3 guinea pigs, 3 rats, a turtle and a fish. I hope to establish an animal sanctuary where I can help abused and neglected farm animals.
Where to start, I was born and raised here in Wilmington. I have always wanted to work with animals. My plan is to become a vet tech and eventually work with all sorts of animals including small exotics and reptiles. I heard about Atlantic Animal Hospital through a friend I worked with who is a Receptionist here with me now. While working at Atlantic, I also work at Petsmart, and I work hands on with the pets there. I have been an animal lover my entire life and have 10 pets of my own including: 3 dogs, 3 guinea pigs, 2 hamsters, a cat and a bearded dragon.

Ashley S., Receptionist
I was born in Raleigh and raised in Cary NC, I moved here with the military and decided to stay in the area and attend school. I have previous experience working in a veterinary office, volunteering with local animal shelters and fostering dogs. I love animals because they have such unconditional love and chose Atlantic because of the welcoming staff and the positive environment. I think some of my strengths come from becoming independent and having the motivation to push myself to do what is best for me and making a good future for myself. I currently have a German Shepard named Athena who I adore. She loves long walks and playing fetch. I am currently in school to pursue my veterinary technician degree.
I was born in NJ but grew up in Raleigh. I moved to Wilmington for the beach, of course! I love animals because of how pure and genuine they are. They are filled with unconditional love, devotion and loyalty. I wanted to work at an animal hospital because I want to be around animals all the time, and my dogs have been coming to AAH ever since I moved here so I knew it was the best in town and wanted to be a part of that. I have worked as a grooming assistant, kennel assistant and also a kennel manager. I spend most of my time volunteering with local rescue groups and trying to find homes for pets in need.
