Receptionists | Operators
I jumped at the chance to live by the beach after having spent my childhood in Lancaster, PA. I chose to be a part of the Atlantic Animal Hospital team after hearing of a customer service position opening from my, then neighbor, Mica (a technician here). I have spent my life around animals and can't think of a more rewarding way to spend my day then caring for the pets that come through the doors. My cats Marina & Simba are nice enough to share their home with my husband, Sean, our German Shepherd (Mavis) and myself.
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.
