Patient Care Team

Paige has been working in veterinary clinics since she was 16. She graduated veterinary technician school in 1992 and has been working as a licensed technician ever since. Her favorite aspect of this profession (besides the animals) is being the “spoke person” for the pet to the pet parent. Helping clients understand the best care for their pet and getting to know the families individually are what keeps her coming to work everyday.

Paige grew up in Florida on a farm and has had many different species of animals. Currently, her family has a rescued pitbull named, Dozer, 2 cats (Kudzu and Mary Weebles), a guinea pig (Nibbles) and a bearded dragon named, Skitter.

She and her husband have two boys and as a family, they love to explore and do outdoor activities like hiking, paddling and fishing. They moved from Atlanta, Georgia and have lived in Kentucky for about 10 years and are loving the change of seasons and the slower pace.
