Georgianna, Customer Service Supervisor
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.

I was born and raised in the LOVELY city of Wilmington, the only time I left home was to attend college in Laurinburg, NC. I have 3 dogs of my own as well as a cichlid fish tank which I enjoy. I have always been fascinated with animals and the way they bond with humans no matter the species. What interest me about the veterinary field is the interactions with animals and the healing process. What brought me to AAH was the supportive team environment and I also wanted to better my knowledge through different challenges and experiences I may not be familiar with. I have spent the last 16 years, or so, working at a local training facility in different departments. I would like to get more veterinary knowledge to better help me in the future since I want to sometime soon become a Rally obedience judge.
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.
I was born and raised in Miami, Florida and my parents are from Columbia. I moved to Wilmington to get a fresh start and try something new. I wanted to work at an animal hospital to make a difference in the lives of pets and their owners. I chose to work at Atlantic Animal Hospital because they are a highly reputable company and I feel like I would be a good fit to the AAH family. I have had some opportunities to work with horses, small farm animals, birds, dogs and cats. In the future, I hope to expand my knowledge on animals and hopefully become a technician or maybe find myself in management at a vet clinic. I feel like my strengths are being bilingual so I can talk to a large variety of people since the community is so diverse and can help get the proper pet care for those who need more knowledge and may not speak only English.
I am from Pennsylvania and moved to North Carolina to be closer to some family and the nice warm weather. I wanted to work with animals and love that they can be sweet and loving but also playful and rambunctious all at the same time. I chose to work at Atlantic Animal Hospital because I had a friend who worked here too and felt like I would fit in well. I am married and have 4 fur babies. We have a dog named Mavis as well as 3 cats Simba, Marina and Little Brother. I am not sure as to how I want to spend my future since I love living in the moment but know that no matter where I end up, it is where I am meant to be and I'm sure it will be around animals (especially cats).
I was born in North Carolina but raised in Ohio. I moved back down to Wilmington as a young adult and wanted to have a fresh start. I love animals because they are kind, loving and are always grateful for their family members. I wanted to work at an animal hospital because I wanted a career change and have always loved animals. My previous experience is from working at a kennel as well as having pets of my own. I currently live at home with my dog and cat and also have 2 wonderful children that I love dearly. I hope that in the future I can work my way to become a veterinarian technician and begin a new and exciting career.
