Desirae, Hospital Manager
When she joined the team in 1999, she did not expect to become so enveloped in pet’s lives or to develop the friendships she has with so many of our regular clients. Desirae primarily stays in the front office area but she can sub-in wherever she is needed.
There is something different happening here everyday and she likes that there is never a boring day at Southeast Animal Hospital. Desirae loves getting to know our patients by heart, knowing their faces and names before clients have a chance to tell her, and a lot of times she knows your name just by hearing your voice on the phone. She loves being a part of your pet’s life and getting to know and care for you, our clients, as well as your pets.
Nancy, Customer Care
Nancy has fostered and volunteered at several organizations for many years. Before bringing Zen to our hospital in 2014, Nancy helped maintain the integrity (and sanity) of a law office and corporation as an administrative assistant and account manager. Nancy has also managed a spay/neuter clinic where she learned her love for animals is far greater than she ever thought possible.
She is the proud mother of a beautiful pit bull named Chip and an orange tabby cat called LeeLooMinai. Her non-furry dependents include four bearded dragons, two leopard geckos, a large iguana, and a spiny lizard. Nancy loves helping the four-legged and the two-legged and looks forward to meeting new pets and people every day!
Adriana began as a health occupations intern her senior year in high school in 2002. After graduating she became a volunteer, and after seeing her dedication and hard work we offered her a kennel technician position in 2003. Since that time she has worn many different hats in the hospital and she has mastered many different job descriptions.
Like many others in the veterinary profession her reason for being here is one from the heart. Adriana said she was drawn to this field because of an early childhood inclination to love and care for animals. For her, the greatest reward of her job is being able to see patients go home feeling better and happy.
Eighty volunteer hours brought Elizabeth to our door step in 2012. Her volunteer hours were a prerequisite for college, to make sure veterinary medicine was the field she wanted to make her career. Thousands of hours later she is still here, but now she gets paid to be here. Liz has been cross-trained to help with every duty in the hospital and loves learning new things.
She has three dogs: Max, Toby and Saby. Max is her right hand man and travels everywhere with her, including the drive-thru window; his bark gets her faster service. She enjoys kissing and spoiling the pets and knows she has done her job well when she sees the clients walk out with a smile on their face.
