LynetteLynette

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.

CherylCheryl

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.

ShannonShannon

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.

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!

 

Rachel WilderRachel Wilder

Veterinary Assistant

I knew from a young age that animals were my passion. At the age of 3, I became a vegetarian (by choice). My family had many pets throughout the years who I loved dearly. I graduated from Weaver Academy as Salutatorian, where I studied classical piano. I then went to UNC Asheville and transferred to UNC Greensboro. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Women and Gender Studies with a minor in Sociology. Political, social, and animal rights activism have always been dear to my heart. After college, I had an internship at Farm Sanctuary. Farm Sanctuary is a place for animals that were rescued from the meat/dairy/egg industry so they can live their lives in peace. This is when I knew that I was meant to work with animals. I got my veterinary assistant certification and began work at Carolina Veterinary Hospital. I worked overnight emergency and ICU for 3 years. I came to Southwoods in March of 2019 and am loving my non-nocturnal schedule. My favorite authors are Daniel Quinn and Haruki Murakami. I am currently vegan and I live with my two precious cats Slowking and Catbug.

AllyAlly

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.

Stephany McCleanStephany McClean

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!

Client Service Representative

I was born and raised in the Southern Piedmont Triad and have always had a passion for our furry best friends. While I didn’t cross my passion and my career until a little later in life, I have been in the industry helping passionate pet parents since 2015. Though I have great experience servicing customers from a financial background experience, the opportunity to go beyond that to building relationships and watching others best friends grow makes me enjoy coming into work every day. I look forward to meeting your best friend and making sure they are taken care of.

I have a total of 7 best friends including 3 dogs, 3 Cats, and 1 bird. Our barker Darren, Hound Lucy, Food Devoted Spike, Lazy Tigger, Shy Peppers, Outspoken Socks, and our High Pitcher Bella.

Outside of spending time with them, I look forward to my next escape room adventure, binge-worthy tv show or a slow night by the fire.

LeiaLeia

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.
