Our Staff

 

Terri:

Terri is our fabulous receptionist. She is accomplished, assertive, and organized and has more than fifteen years experience as the right-hand woman in (human) medical offices. She helped a medical clinic transition from paper to electronic records, which is a huge asset as we’re in the midst of that conversion at Sedona Animal Clinic right now! 

 

Terri is the consumate professional, empathetic, trustworthy, and dependable. She is a problem solver who’s magnetic personality draws people in. She is the proud mother of 3 very accomplished young men and the grandmother of 2 terrific young women and 1 adorable little boy. Terri loves people and pets and as she says, “I believe we all choose our road, and I set off from Minnesota on a new path, to a new place, Sedona, and a new beginning. Every day I get to make a difference in someone’s life. That is a very rewarding feeling.”


 

Melanie: 

Melanie can do it all! She is an experienced vet tech who relocated to Sedona from Michigan several years ago. Mel has been working with domestic and wild animals since 1986. Mel was state and federally permitted to rehab wildlife in Michigan. Among other tasks, Mel trained raptors to hunt!  However, Mel paused that phase of her life to raise her daughter and three sons.  

In more recent years Mel was the general manager at Almost Home, a 100% no-kill shelter in Michigan, a professional groomer, an animal trainer, and she worked at the Humane Society of Sedona. In addition, Mel is currently enrolled in college courses to become a licensed vet tech, and she and is working to reinstate her wildlife rehab permits here in Arizona. We couldn’t be more proud to have Mel’s experience, expertise, and warm heart to help us serve our clients.


 

Lisa:

Lisa is our amazing new vet tech who recently moved from Clearwater, Florida. Lisa has been working in the veterinary field since she was 16 years old. She obtained a New York State vet tech license in 1991 and graduated from Adelphi University with Bachelor's degree in Biology in 1992. She spent the past 10 years working as a vet tech in Florida and fostering kitties for her local Humane Society. She is extremely experienced caring for animals during surgery and dental procedures and she monitors your pets like one of her own. 

 

She loves to work with animals and people and has a heart of gold. When she’s not working at the clinic, you can find her riding horses and taking care of her two daughters (ages 4 and 16), her father, and her four cats: Goblin, Simba, Simon, and Potty. Yes, she loves cats!! 

 



 

Carrie: 

Carrie is our super caring veterinary assistant. Carrie has been working with animals since she was a little girl. She grew up with all kinds of animals including raccoons, deer, horses, cows! Carrie trained horses for two years and has always wanted to be a vet and work with animals. She assists the veterinary technicians and doctors with diagnostic tests and procedures and fills in at the front desk when Terri has a day off. 

 

In addition to being a military wife and expectant mother, Carrie has 3 dogs and a cat: a chocolate lab, a husky mix, a shorthair pointer, and Siamese mix. In her free time Carrie loves to volunteer at animal shelters and rescues.  



 



Cookie & Turtle:  

These two clinic-kitties work very hard to make the clinic a nice place! When they aren't sleeping, they are entertaining the staff with their antics. Turtle is the more adventurous of the two, despite her limited vision. You might spot her roaming the halls from time to time. Cookie loves to sit on the couch and be pet. She lives a life of leisure!
