Hospital Administrator

I have been working in the veterinary industry since 1999 and I absolutely love my job! It started because of my love and passion for animals and grew due to a desire to be more involved in my community, assisting clients with helping their pets live happier, longer lives and a need to feel responsible for how business is growing. I am a member of the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association. It is a great pleasure to work here because I love to be around compassionate, kind-hearted veterinarians and staff members and because I truly appreciate every client and patient and the bond that develops when a client finally meets veterinarians they feel they can completely trust with the well-being of their pets. When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my family. We have 2 dogs who have been a part of our family since 2005: Elizabeth, a Labrador retriever and Rizzell, an Australian Cattle Dog, and a mischievous feline, who sometimes answers to Kion (only when he wants something). I also enjoy cooking, gardening and swimming.

I look forward to making your experience a great one here at Southwoods Animal Hospital. Please feel free to reach out to me if there is anything I can do to help us exceed your expectations.


Registered Veterinary Technician

I was born in Nashville, TN, but my family relocated to Greensboro when I was in the 4th grade. I am a Registered Veterinary Technician graduating from Central Carolina Community College with an Associate Degree in Applied Science in 1976. At the time, CCCC was the only accredited program for veterinary technicians in the southeastern part of the United States but is now one of three in NC, so I feel very fortunate to have been a part of that history. When I first started at Southwoods Animal Hospital in 1997, I had been a stay-at-home mom for several years. It was scary getting back in the profession again as things had changed quite a bit. Dr. Joe evidently felt I was up to the challenge and I have been at Southwoods ever since! I have been married for over 30 years to the same great man, have two wonderful children and son-in-law, and am the proud “Nana” to two grandchildren who are the light of my life.

I knew at the age of 11 years old that I wanted to help animals. One of my friend’s fathers found a beagle puppy in a lake where someone had tried to drown him because he was sick. I begged my parents to let me take him but unfortunately, he passed away from distemper virus soon after. It was at that moment that I made up my mind to pursue veterinary medicine and save as many animals as I could. I have definitely lived up to that promise! I presently have 10 dogs and 6 cats!

My grandchildren have top billing with my spare time, but I also enjoy taking canine acting classes with my corgi Franklin, taking my dogs to various parks for hikes and plan to do agility training with my border collie sometime in the near future.


Veterinary Assistant

I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC. I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2006. When I was growing up, my family always had pets. Being around animals just made me happy, and after doing an internship at a wildlife rehabilitation center when I was at school, I realized just how much I enjoyed helping them. I worked at a vet hospital in Charlotte for four years before moving to Greensboro. I currently have two cats and a beagle. I enjoy hiking, reading, and spending time with friends.


Veterinary Assistant / Client Service Representative

I was born I Morganton, NC and raised between Asheville, NC and Greensboro NC. Growing up my family has always had a family pet of some sort. When I was little I always wanted to work with animals and I have always been passionate about the well-being of all animals. My friends have always joked with me about how I will go hang out with them and then spend time with their pets instead. I am recently married and my husband and I have adopted two cats who are now spoiled!

My other interests are reading (I almost always have a book in my purse or car), Playing video games, and spending time with family and friends.


Veterinary Assistant / Client Service Representative

I have been working with Animals since I was 16, I started working at a local pet store in my hometown of Winston Salem, North Carolina. I graduated high school and moved to Greensboro where I got a job as a kennel Tech, I moved up to a vet assistant and relocated after a year. I have worked for two AHAA accredited hospitals, and have played many different roles in the veterinary field. I have done kennel, tech, and reception, and my goal is to someday have a degree in business management and be a hospital administrator. In my free time, I love spending time with my family and my fur baby, willow.

Andee Hill

Veterinary Assistant

I am originally from California but grew up in Reidsville, NC. Currently I’m working on BA in Business Administration. I started working as a veterinary assistant a while ago then took a break from it for five years while I enjoyed working at Starbucks during that time. During my free time I enjoy running in half marathons and running in my running group with my running friends. I have two cats, a greyhound and a love for coffee & animals!


Animal Care Assistant

I was born in Lexington, North Carolina and raised between Welcome, NC and Winston-Salem, NC. My Mother has been a Veterinary Technician since I was born so I have been around animals and animal hospitals all my life. When not with my mom I stayed at my Grandparent’s house a lot with them and their six dogs and two cats. One of the cats, named Tigger, I always claimed as my own and begged my mom to let him live at our house, but to no avail. Living with my mom and step-dad we had cats, but never a dog. So just like any other kid around my age, I begged my parents for a dog until one day I succeeded and mom rescued a Corgi/Beagle mix from work and a Cocker Spaniel shortly after and we have had even more rescues since then.

I moved to Greensboro in 2013 after graduating high school to attend UNCG. My original goal at UNCG was to become a teacher. I began working at Southwoods around July of 2015. After working in the field that I practically grew up in and becoming frustrated with the ever-changing curriculum required to become a teacher I decided to commit myself more to caring for animals and to become a registered veterinary technician. I live with my girlfriend and our three cats Radar, Winter, and Figaro. Radar was rescued by my mom around 10 years ago, I rescued Winter from Southwoods when she was an abandonment case, and I found Figaro at our old apartment complex and took responsibility for him. I enjoy reading and playing video games in my free time.


Animal Care Assistant

I was born and raised in Greensboro, NC. I am a student at NC Agricultural and Technical State University studying Animal Science and Laboratory Animal Science. Growing up, I’ve always loved caring for animals; just being around them made me happy. I’ve had many pets over the years (dogs, cats, birds, fish, and a turtle) and I’ve also had experiences working with wildlife, farm and lab animals. Over the years, I was able to volunteer and intern at Southwoods Animal Hospital while attending middle and high school. My hope is to continue working with animals after graduating and continue to make a difference caring for animals no matter how big or small.



Meagan has been grooming dogs and cats for over 20 years. She is originally from Walkertown, where she grew up on a farm, and as a kid, she had all kinds of animals, including horses, cows, dogs, and cats. She spent most of her time at the barn with her animals. She loves spending time with her husband and kids while camping. Their furry family members include one cat and two dogs.

Meagan has a strong compassion for animals, their care, and well-being. Grooming keeps her connected with her passion, and she considers it a wonderful way to spend time with animals and their pet parents.


Client Service Representative

I have had pets almost all my life. It started with a goldfish and progressed to dogs, cats, horses and even chickens when I was young. I love them all. I grew up in Mebane, NC around my grandparents who had a farm. I spent a lot of time with my grandfather in the barn with the cows and horses. I’ve spent most of my working life enjoying sales and the financial industry but the past 3 years have been the most enjoyable – being in the veterinary world. I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.

We have 3 dogs, Luna, Ogie, and Remi, and a cat, Angel. I enjoy camping, being outdoors, working out and spending time with my husband and 3 kids!
