Kristen

Practice Manager

Kristen has been at CAC since 2015. She was born and raised in Paris, TN and graduated from Mississippi State University in 2018 with a degree in Animal and Dairy Sciences.

She began working in the veterinary industry as she always had a love for animals. She grew up with a dog at home who followed her everywhere. Kristen loves working with animals and seeing their wagging tails when we have helped them since they are so loving and quick to forgive. She knew she was in the right profession when our clients started remembering her name and genuinely thanked her for helping their pet.

Kristen’s family is very dear to her heart and are her best friends. Outside of work, she enjoys watching the MSU Bulldogs football team, the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team, attending concerts, training her GSP, fishing, spending time with friends, and trying new foods.

Sylvia

Veterinary Receptionist

Since 1999 Sylvia has enjoyed meeting and greeting CAC clients and their four legged friends at the front desk. Her hard work is rewarded when she sees a pet that came in very sick or injured with a very concerned and worried client leaving with its tail wagging and owner smiling. Sylvia knows that happy healthy pets are what we are all about. Sylvia’s family includes husband, Daniel, and daughter, Brianna, a cat and two dogs.
