Chantelle
Veterinary Technician
Chantelle has always wanted to protect animals from harm, and she’s felt a lifelong desire to perform hands-on work to better the lives of those who can’t speak for themselves. For her, a career in the world of veterinary medicine makes perfect sense! Chantelle is proud to serve as a Veterinary Technician here at Dr. Kathy’s Veterinary Care.

Chantelle grew up in Dunedin, and started working at a pet hospital in Clearwater at the age of 18. She’s been involved in veterinary medicine ever since! She became good friends with one of the doctors at the practice, and transferred with her to a clinic in Tampa, Florida—Chantelle would help pets and their owners there for the next eight years, expanding her knowledge and skillset even further. Next, she decided to work more locally, and took a job at what would become Dr. Kathy’s Veterinary Care in North Redington Beach. She’s been here ever since!

Around the clinic, Chantelle likes critical care situations and the way that they keep her on her toes. Her favorite part of the job, though, is helping young pets to get started off on the right paw—nothing beats getting to watch families grow over time with their animal companions.

Chantelle’s interests outside of work include catching up on her favorite television shows, playing video games, and doting on her own pets at home. She and her husband, Paul, have four cats: Jinx, who Chantelle adopted from the Humane Society after graduating from high school; Bear, a polydactyl longhaired cat who doesn’t let his struggles with pancreatitis and irritable bowel syndrome affect his mood in the least; Jackson, who wakes Chantelle up every morning by licking and biting her nose; and a Bengal cat named Nala, who lives a posh life of luxury.
Jamie
Lead Receptionist
Jamie and her family always had animals while she was growing up, including dogs, cats, horses, cows, chickens, goats, and even a few squirrels, chipmunks, raccoons, and a skunk! For her, animal care has always been a part of life. When the opportunity arose for her to put her experience in customer service to good use in the world of pet care, Jamie jumped at the chance.

Jamie is originally from rural western Michigan and moved to Florida a number of years ago. Prior to joining the team here at Dr. Kathy’s Veterinary Care, she worked in customer service as a member of the automotive industry for 15 rewarding years. She brought her own pets here to the hospital before she became an employee—when a position opened up, Jamie was the perfect fit! Now, she’s the clinic’s Head Receptionist.

Around the hospital, Jamie loves to interact with pet owners and their furry companions on a daily basis, and she especially likes reassuring pet parents when it’s called for. She prides herself and the whole team on fully taking care of both pet and owner during their time here at the clinic.

At home, Jamie and her boyfriend live with two dogs and two cats: Jazz, an American Bulldog/Pit Bull mix, Kamra the Cane Corso, and two sibling felines named Springwells and Carlisle. Much of Jamie’s free time is also spent with animals—she’s an avid dog trainer and is also very active in the world of fostering and rescue. To date, she’s rescued and fostered more than 40 pets!
