Leadership

Lexi

Lexi  at Baton Rouge Animal Clinic

Even as a very small child Lexi always knew she wanted a career that involved animals. She would often go to work with her mother, who was a Veterinary Assistant, as often as possible. In this small sweet practice, she acquired an even greater interest for the large and small animals, aspiring to learn more about medicine and animal behavior. After high school graduation she applied to Louisiana State University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science and Technology in 2011.

While at LSU, Lexi secured a job working at Jefferson Animal Hospital in 2007. Having worked in every area of that practice and mastering each station she was honored to be promoted to Practice Manager in 2016.
Lexi currently enjoys her many furry friends! She has Briar, a German Shorthair, Buster a small mixed breed and Bane, a domestic longhair cat! She also rescued several pets that were in need of a loving home, Opal Fire, an appaloosa, Tuff a huge bob-tail and Hank a Spinone Italiano! Everyone needs a little Italian in their life ..right!

One of her favorite activities is being out side with all of her fur babies and watching all of their playful antics! 

 

Kirstin

Kirstin at Baton Rouge Animal Clinic

Kirstin is the lead receptionist at Jefferson Animal Hospital.  When she isn’t assisting her clients and patients with their needs she is at home with her husband, toddler, and 2 dogs.  Together the 5 of them operate a small business out of their home called Beyond the Garage.  They focus on the manufacturing of whimsy and happy thoughts.  Through film production, art making, rabble rousing and puppet building they work hard to fill the hearts of Baton Rouge with foolishness and remind everyone that you don’t actually have to grow up. 

Amy

Amy at Baton Rouge Animal Clinic

My name is Amy. I am one of the veterinary technicians here at Jefferson Animal Hospital as well as the appointment manager. I graduated from LSU in 2002 with a Biological Science degree. I have been a veterinary technician for 17 years and 10 1/2 of those years have been with JAH. My love for animals began when I was only 3 years old with an orange and white kitten named Morris. Since then, animals of all kinds have held a special place in my heart. My husband, our two children, and I are proud to include 2 dogs, Katie and Elsa, 3 cats, Kitty, Newt, and Gus, 2 goldfish, and a bearded dragon named Aveeva to our family. I feel very fortunate to have a job where my love for animals can shine through with the care we give to our patients here everyday! 

Brandy

Brandy at Baton Rouge Animal Clinic

Hi! My name is Brandy Malbrough and I am a 22 years old chick from Bourg, LA. In May 2016 I graduated from Louisiana State University with a BS degree in Natural Resources with a focus in Aquaculture and Fisheries. I have the pleasure of owning two spunky schnauzers who never cease to entertain, and I live in Addis, LA. In my spare time I enjoy fishing, hiking, biking, napping, and learning as much as I can about music and marine biology. I have loved animals of all kinds and sorts ever since I can remember and in May of 2013 I started working at Jefferson Animal Hospital. My favorite part about my job is between our clients, their pets, and my fellow employees, this clinic truly feels like home to me. I can honestly say it's the best environment I've ever worked in! Go JAH!

Naomi

Naomi at Baton Rouge Animal Clinic

Growing up in a small town I was raised around animals; small, big, and giant. I attribute my love and passion for animals to that and to a story of when I was less than a year old, my parents had tried everything to get me to calm down and be the happy baby they were used to, but nothing worked until I was put in my swing directly behind 3 kittens playing, who captivated me completely and animals continue to captivate me 25 years later. Ever since I can remember, I knew I wanted to work with animals and so I went to LSU to study Animal Science, where I graduated in December 2015 with my Bachelor’s of Animal Science. Now I get to see and help these wonderful beings everyday. My favorite part of my job is being able to see a sick animal return home, happy and healthy! I currently live in Baton Rouge with my boyfriend and our 2 animals; Lucy, our 9 year old Lab/Collie Mix and Elmo, our 10 year old Main Coon Mix, who both get way more attention than they desire most of the time. In the spare time I am not with my animals, I enjoy reading, walking or picnicking in the park, and watching TV.

Alley Claire

Alley at Baton Rouge Animal Clinic

I'm from Pineville, Louisiana. I'm 24 years old. I graduated from LSU in May of 2016 with a Bachelor's Degree in Animal Science. I live with my 2 cats Milo and Maisie, my dog Bentley, and my fish Pickle. I have worked at Jefferson for 5 years, and I can’t imagine being anywhere else. I attend LSU Vet School and will graduate in 2021. I have always known that I wanted to work with animals since getting a kitten for my third birthday. I enjoy making lasting relationships with clients and patients through repeated visits at work. In my spare time I enjoy watching Netflix, walking Bentley around the LSU lakes, reading, and traveling.

Annamarie

Annamarie at Baton Rouge Animal Clinic

I graduated from Louisiana State University in 2000 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science.  I began working at Jefferson Animal Hospital in 1999 and have been fortunate to work in the same place for so many years.  From a young age, I have always loved animals and wanted to work with them.  One of my favorite things about working at Jefferson Animal Hospital is getting to know the animals and their “people” and taking care of them over the years.  When I’m not working, I’m a full-time wife and mother.  I am blessed with a wonderful husband, Jason, and two beautiful children, Evelyn and Samuel.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to movies, taking the kids to the park, going to church, vacationing on the beach, and just having a good time.

Michelle

Michelle at Baton Rouge Animal Clinic

Michelle and her husband live in Baton Rouge with their six pets; Izzy a Siamese mix, Tigger an orange tabby, Zoe a French Bulldog, Kobe a British Lab which is her husband's Diabetic Alert Dog (aka DAD for short), Tucker a Boxer, and Leonidas a Bengal. 

She moved to Baton Rouge in 2006 to attend LSU, where she received her degree in Animal Science and Technology. She was hired at Jefferson Animal Hospital right after graduating from LSU in 2011. She is now kennel and surgery manager. 

Michelle’s father was a veterinarian and animals have always been a constant in her life. She has owned a wide range of pets, everything from cats and dogs to emus and chameleons.  She has always enjoyed caring for animals. Her very fist job was working as a veterinary assistant with her father.  He introduced her to the field of veterinary care and taught her how important her job is in caring for the animals. 

Faith

Faith at Baton Rouge Animal Clinic

Born in Baton Rouge, raised all over the US, I love to smile, be silly and to learn new things! I enjoy hiking with my boyfriend and two dogs, looking for native Louisiana species of venomous and non-venomous snakes to photograph and study, foraging for wild mushrooms, and appreciating the small things. I plan to study Herpetology at LSU in the fall, eventually obtaining a degree and traveling the world to see and experience everything I can. Working at JAH has opened my eyes to the world of companionship, everyone here is warm and welcoming and I am beyond happy to be a part of this team!

Kiara

Kiara at Baton Rouge Animal Clinic

My name is Kiara and I am a veterinary technician here at Jefferson Animal Hospital. I completed my studies in Animal Science and Technology at Louisiana State University in the summer of 2013. I then continued my studies at Baton Rouge Community College where I completed the Veterinary Technology program in 2017. Growing up, there were always animals in my home; and very early on it was clear to my parents that I had a very strong love for animals. Through the years to adulthood the love and passion I have for animals and their well-being has only grown! Being able to be an advocate for them brings me such joy. I was born in Pensacola, Florida but I’ve lived most of my life here in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and call this place home. I am a mother of 2 very loving and charismatic children. One son who loves to be the center of attention with all of his comical dancing; he truly has a love for music, and one daughter who has the most tender heart and is in love with everything creative (much like her mother). I currently own two pets, Rollx and Kodak who are now the best of friends! On my spare time I serve as Executive Secretary for Beta Delta Tau Youth Sorority, Inc., mentoring high school girls and allowing them to experience what sisterhood is all about. I am also a free-hand artist and express myself through drawings, paintings and cake decorating. I am elated to be a part of a team that is so loving, and who carries the same gold standards that I do when it comes to caring for our furry family.

Laney

I am from Loranger, LA. I graduated from Louisiana State University with a degree in Animal Science in May of 2014. I have always had a deep love for animals and have been around them all my life. Before starting at Jefferson Animal Hospital, I managed a dog and cat boarding facility for 7 years. One of my favorite things about working with Dr. Larry and Dr. Kim is getting to see the amazing transformations these animals make and helping to improve their lives. I am also very involved in animal rescue and foster for multiple rescues in the Baton Rouge area.

Lillian

Lillian at Baton Rouge Animal Clinic

In 2012, I moved to Baton Rouge from Richmond, Virginia to attend LSU. I graduated from school with a degree in Renewable Natural Resources with a concentration in Wildlife Ecology. I hope to use this degree to become a wildlife veterinarian and study diseases thats impact wildlife populations and domestic pets. Conservation of wildlife and their habitats has always been my passion. I have three pets--a Doberman named Kronk and two cats named Gwen and Leonard. I enjoy taking my dog for runs and hikes and relaxing after work with the cats.

My name is Paris and I’m originally from New Orleans, La. I am currently enrolled at Louisiana State University working towards a Bachelors degree in animal science. My favorite part of being an animal care coordinator is being able to interact with all the pets that come and visit us and also learning new things along the way. Along with working at Jefferson Animal Hospital, I am also employed with a Baton Rouge based dog rescue. While working in rescue, I found my forever best friend Mrs. Louise Eleanor, a beautiful boxer mix, with a huge personality and an even bigger heart.
