Roxann

Licensed Veterinary Technician

Hi, my name is Roxann.  I grew up in Newport News, VA, and recently moved to the Toano area.  I graduated from Blue Ridge Community College as a Licensed Veterinary Technician in 2008, and started working at a vet in Newport News.  I have been a part of the Anderson’s Corner family since 2012.  I have a passion for anesthesia, surgery, and, especially, veterinary dentistry.  I enjoy client education and spending time with pet owners to share my knowledge with them.

My love of animals has been part of my entire life, bringing me to rescue a special sheltie of my own, Ruby. Outside of Anderson’s Corner, my favorite things to do are to spend time with my very close friends and family, and I always enjoy going on photography adventures with my husband.

Katie

Treatment Technician

Hello I'm Katie, I have been an employee at Anderson's Corner Animal Hospital since we opened.  I started right out if high school working at The Gloucester Mathews Humane Society. While working there I learned so much about the want, need and desire to take care of our four legged family members & find them all forever homes. I learned my most useful skills while working at the humane society:  compassion & observation. Compassion towards people and their needs for their pets, the much needed compassion for the animals in our care, no matter what the situation is. Also, observation to be able to recognize the state of mind the pet is in and help comfort them in the way they need to be comforted. I apply all that I have learned daily, towards my clients’ pets and even my own. My own two cats are my loves. I have had Dill since he was 8 days old & could not have asked for a better cat with a more amazing personality. He has undergone a few knee surgeries, one that has frozen his leg in place. But through it all he has been very happy and positive and will probably be the best cat I ever own. Lucky is Dills adopted sister who I foundas a stray at 8 weeks old. I like to think of her as my normal cat, she's a bit shy but very lovable after her rough start to life. I'm very happy to work with the Doctors and my fellow employees at ACAH. I believe we have a great mix of knowledgeable staff that can help educate the family's concerns for the patient’s needs. I look forward to going to work because my job truly makes me happy.Every day is a different day & it gives us a chance to help every animal we come across.
