Danielle was raised in Port Orange and moved to New Smyrna Beach when she was 17. She’s always loved animals and wanted to work in a vet clinic where she could help care for them. She came on board when friends who work here told her about an open position.

Danielle likes to do things outside in her free time, including wake surfing, riding horses and hiking.
Amanda grew up in Volusia County and has lived here all her life. She came to the clinic when a good friend told her about an opening. Amanda has always loved animals and hoped to study wildlife biology, so working here she gets to learn new things and care for great pets. Amanda shares her home with Franklin, an African sulcata tortoise, who had his shell painted and was released in Rima Ridge. She also has a puppy named Turbo and a kitten named Hannah. She spends her free time with her family, fishing or watching races. Amanda likes to decompress after work by sitting with her chickens.
Melissa grew up here in the New Smyrna area and realized she wanted to be a veterinarian when she got her first dog, a shepherd-mix named Angel.
