Hey, My Name is Dani, and I am client care representative here at Westchase Veterinary center! I was born and raised in Florida and I am currently going to Hillsborough Community College to pursue a career in Veterinary Medicine! When I am not at work or school I am either playing with my furry friends Tornado and Merlin the horses, Harley and Carley the dogs and Bandit and Cletus the rats, as well as spending time with friends and family or going outside to explore nature. I can't wait to see you and your furry family member on your next visit!
My name is Steve and I am the Practice Manager at Westchase Veterinary Center. Originally born in Florida, I lived the first 25 years or so in Georgia. Here I attended Georgia Southern University and received my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. I eventually moved back to Florida and started my career as a staff chemist working at Mote Marine Laboratory. From there, I pursued my career in veterinary medicine as a hospital administrator. I bring 10 years experience to Westchase and a desire to service our clients and community to the best of my ability. I am married with 2 small boys, Jackson and Gunner. I greatly enjoy golfing, riding my bike (road bike or mountain bike) and my living saltwater reef aquarium.
Assistant Hospital Manager
My name is Katina and I have been with Westchase Veterinary since 2010, and am now the Assistant Hospital Manager. I am originally from El Reno, Oklahoma, but moved to Florida in 2002 to pursue my college degree. I attended and graduated from the University of West Florida in Pensacola, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Marine Biology in 2010. After graduation my husband, Jeremy, and I relocated to the Tampa area. We have a son, Jaxson, and 4 four-legged daughters, Ophelia and Hermia (who are Chihuahuas), Serafina (a Pomchi), and Leia (a Terrier Mix). When not at work, I love spending time with my family and going to Disney.
Hello! My name is Lauren and I love being apart of the Westchase Veterinary family as the reception supervisor! I am originally from Rhode Island and moved to Tampa 7 years ago. I attended Hillsborough Community College and graduated with my associates in business administration. I love meeting and getting to know our awesome clients and patients. My fiancé Tony and I have a four legged child, Rhody, who we named after our home state! In my free time, I enjoy hanging out at home, trips to Disney, and spending time with my family and friends!
My name is Ariel (like the little mermaid) and I am a new Florida transplant from Los Angeles, CA. where I was born and raised. My husband and I recently made the drive cross country camping our way through the states along with our pit bull/ dogo argentino mix, Eva. I have been in the veterinary world for 13 years and got my certification in CA (RVT license) around 3 years ago. A little over a year ago I also became a Fear Free Certified professional. I love volunteering and working with large exotic animals (lions and tigers and bears Oh my!) as well as helping our small animal companions. When I'm not working or volunteering I was a big hiker/ camper in CA but now I'm usually hitting the beach or exploring my new home state!
