"'Do not take life too seriously. You will never make it out alive.' As stated by Elbert Hubbard, I tend to try to have fun and bring a smile to as many faces as possible. I love being outdoors. Hunting, fishing, shooting targets with my firearms and spending time in the barn with my two large, four-legged children. I've grown up around animals so I enjoy working with all different sizes and species. I'm currently going to school at Owens Community College. Although I'm unsure of what I want to major in, I know I would love to work closely with animals.
I have quite a few pets. Starting with my large fur babies, I have two horses. LuLu is a sixteen year old quarter horse, appaloosa mix who loves to go for long rides and loves to eat sour gummy worms. I also have two barn cats Simeon and Sweet Pea.

Meredith Since 1999
"The first owner of RRAH, Dr. Tom Young, was going to give me to his niece. However, when Dr. Young brought me to the hospital, he realized I brought such style and grace to the practice, I just had to stay. I can be seen grooming myself when I'm not greeting clients. My job here is to keep everyone in line and to add beauty and class to the environment. My hobbies include napping, posing, being petted, being adored, and looking at Joey with disdain. One day I hope to take over the practice.
I have several human pets that I have trained to meet my every need."
Joey (Derp) Since 2012
"Dr. Roger adopted me as a kitten from a client and I came to live at RRAH. I am a very sweet and affectionate boy. I have successfully kicked the habit of peeing outside my litter box. My job is to bring joy to all of my coworkers (except Meredith). I remind the humans to play, cuddle, and laugh. My hobbies include supervising dental and ultrasound procedures, stealing tape, and inventing toys from every day objects. One day I hope to catch my tail.
I have a pet bird that chirps when I play with him. Meredith says he's not a real bird, but I don't believe her."
In Loving Memory
Our RRAH family was torn apart with bad news earlier this year. We lost one of our valued employees, Kellie.
Everyone knew Kellie with a huge smile on her face and a big hug waiting for whoever needed it. She cared for patients as if they were her own and truly held our work family together. We are all completely heartbroken and will cherish her forever.
