Hamilton, Practice Manager
I was born in Colombia, South America. After a little traveling I made it to New Jersey/New York Metropolitan area where I attended high school and later I attended college in the state of Pennsylvania. After college, I began working as Veterinary Technician for a few years, where I fell in love with Veterinary Medicine. I have since been delighted to grow into the management role where building teams and servicing clients drive my career. I have served in a management role for 18 years now. Since stepping into management, I have been fortunate and honored to speak and teach at various conferences to spread the benefit of a practice manager in a veterinary business. My goal of benefiting the practice management position has led me to be the founder of 2 Veterinary Practice associations, one in Texas and the other in South Carolina.
The most important things to me in this world are my 3 special ladies (Kristina, Makayla, and Danyella) along with my other babies (2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks = Obi & Imani). They are what remind me on a daily basis what it is to have life and love!
After going through life with a very deep passion and admiration for ALL animals I have finally fallen into my dream career position! Serving as the Practice Manager for Animal Hospital of Dunedin. Please know that I am honored to be your team mate in making this wonderful facility the most spectacular veterinary hospital ever!!!
Julie, Patient Care Coordinator
I am a Dunedin native and have loved being around animals all my life. I found the perfect opportunity in 1997 to work with animals at the Animal Hospital of Dunedin. During my time here I have held several positions and I am currently the Patient Care Coordinator. I love that I am able to help pet parents obtain the very best veterinary care for their fur babies and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. The Animal Hospital of Dunedin is truly a home away from home for me. I still live in Dunedin with my husband, Jon, our son Ian, and our five cats (yup we are crazy cat people). I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies!
Abby, Reception Manager
I’m a Michigan native, but decided to stay close to the beach after graduating from Clearwater Christian College with a bachelor’s degree in Biology. I have a silly Blue Tick Coon Hound named “Angel” and mischievous Plott Hound name “Harper”, who love to snuggle and play with my Bengal cat “Finnigan”.
My husband and I moved to Florida in 2009 and have settled nicely into the Dunedin community. After being in emergency medicine for 10 years I'm very excited to be a part of the animal hospital of Dunedin's staff. Being able to build a trusting relationships with owners and their pets is very important to me. My love of animals has lead me to not only caring for my own 3 dogs and 2 cats, but also rehabilitating abandoned squirrels. Any free time I get I spend with my four legged kids, kayaking, biking or walking on the Pinellas trail.
I was born and raised in Florida. I thoroughly enjoy caring for your babies during their visits with us in the kennel. On m off time, I spend time with my Pit Bull Jax. We enjoy trips to the dog park regularly. While it may not be a trip to the dog park, I hope to make your baby’s visit with us as enjoyable as possble.
I'm was born in New York and grew up in the Tampa Bay area. I graduated from the University of Tampa with a B.A. in Communication and worked in radio for 8 years. Most recently before working at AHOD, I was a dog nanny to 9 Rhodesian Ridgebacks in a private home. I have always wanted to work with animals and plan to start vet tech school in the Fall. I currently live in Tampa with my husband and our 2 dogs, Rufus, a deaf American bulldog mix and Gogo, a border collie/Australian shepherd mix.

Lesley, Technician Manager
I am originally from a small town in Tennessee, where my love of animals started at a young age. At around the age of 16 I started working at a local animal hospital. I later moved to St. Louis, MO where I also worked with animals. Then after moving to Florida in 2006 I have continued my career as a veterinary technician. I currently live on Clearwater Beach with my boyfriend Brian. We share our home with "Darby" our senior canine, and "Goose" and "Creep", the felines. When I am not taking care of animals I love to travel and go boating.
I joined the team in May 2012. Prior to working at Animal Hospital of Dunedin, I graduated from Florida State University and worked at a small animal practice in Tallahassee. When not caring for patients I enjoy reading, playing poker and relaxing with my husband Chris and our 2 dogs and 2 cats.
I was born in Chicago, IL but moved to Florida in February 2013. I have two dogs, a cat, and an eight year son who is my whole world. I have always wanted to be a technician and I received my CVT in 2015. I couldn’t be happier to be a part of this team and look forward to meeting your fur babies!
I moved to Florida in 2004 from Colorado. I worked as a Certified Veterinary Technician for 5 years before joining the team at the Animal Hospital of Dunedin. I, have a rescued a dog who I lovingly call Sawyer The Destroyer.
I am originally from Shreveport, Louisiana. I have lived in Florida since 2005 and definitely consider this my home. I have two sweet cats and a bearded dragon named “Dude”. I have been a vet tech since 2007.
I moved to Florida from Maryland when I was 10 years old. I come from a family of animal lovers and because of that I have always had lots of pets. Currently I have a 16 year old Lhasa-poo named "Kenzie", a 4 years old kitty named "Puffin" and a kitten I just adopted from the animal hospital. I look forward to meeting and taking care of your pets!
