  • Sara
    Nurse

    Hello, my Name is Sara. I moved to Florida from New York around 4 years ago. I have always had a passion for Veterinary Medicine since I was around 5 years old. My house has always been filled with presence of animals. Currently I, myself, own two dogs, a German shepherd mix and a Rottweiler. My parents own our other four animals; a golden doodle, puggle, yorkie, and a domestic shorthair cat. I am currently pursuing my Biomedical Sciences degree for pre-veterinary studies, and hope to soon attend the University of Florida for my Veterinary degree. I began working for the Animal Emergency Center June of 2016 as a Patient Care Nurse. I couldn’t have found a better experience than this!

  • Justin
    Nurse

    My name is Justin, and I've been part of the Animal Emergency Center team since 2009. I have had the pleasure of working with animals for almost my whole life. I am originally from the the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee. I started working with horses at an elementary age, and as I grew older I invested my time in the development of raising chickens. This was a community project with a local 4-H Club that I was a member of. We would raise them to adulthood, and auction off the chickens for charity money for the club. I had usually grown so attached to the animals that I had my mother set up someone at the auction that would buy them and give them back to me. I couldn't handle the thought of giving them away since I had raised them since before they had feathers. Time went on and I was later interested in shelter medicine. I worked with the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley for about a year. I have a huge passion for shelter medicine because its where I learned I had a talent with animals. I expanded my knowledge after working with Humane Society in Tennessee by working with a private practice for about a year before I moved to Florida. I moved to Jacksonville, FL and worked with the Jacksonville Humane Society for about 2 years. This was an amazing experience for me because we did a lot for the community. I became a certified member of the medical team D.A.R.T. (Disaster Animal Response Team) of the Humane Society of the United States. I was part of the Katrina relief, where 50 or so dogs were transported out of the devastated area and into a safe environment. We helped medically assess each pet, and treat accordingly. Some the pets were even re-united with their families. I eventually grew more interested in emergency situations, and that lead me to an Animal ER in Jacksonville where I was a nurse for three years. This was great experience because I was trained to work in intense situations. I continued my education going to lectures at Universities and conferences around the United States. I moved to Orlando in 2009, and started working for the Animal Emergency Center. I love my job and I enjoy being there for you and your loved one in a time of need.

Feedback From Our Clients

  • "Wonderful, caring people, helped my dog, Emmi,. right away and the vet tech that greeted us and took care of my dog in the room was very knowledgeable, checked all her vitals and assured me she was stable. She was prompt to inform the doctor what was going on and update me constantly. I brought my dog in for a cute diarrhea. They gave her fluids, meds and made her better! Very knowledgeable! Thank u!"
