Our Careteam

Emily

Practice Manager

Emily has been a pet owner all her life, and she’s been rescuing stray animals off of the streets for as long as she can remember. What better way to continue working directly with the creatures she loves while making a true difference in the community, Emily thought, than by helping pets in the veterinary world? She hasn’t looked back since!

Emily grew up in both Texas and Minnesota, and moved to midtown Tulsa in 2013 to work in management and administration. After four years, she decided to move to Broken Arrow and take a step back from the multi-entity corporate world; Emily wanted to focus her skills and experience on bettering her local community. That’s when she decided to jump headfirst into the field of veterinary medicine—she was thrilled to join the Avalon Veterinary Hospital family in the summer of 2017 as the clinic’s Practice Manager! Emily never tires of seeing the special bonds between pets and owners, especially when they’re reunited after an extended hospital stay.

Away from the office, Emily enjoys reading, cooking—she even attended culinary school, and currently uses that education to invent creative ways to sneak vegetables into her five-year-old’s dinner!—and making art. She and her young son, Cameron, share their lives with three loveable pets: Sadie Mae, a Border Collie/Pit Bull mix who has traveled across the country with Emily during their many years together; a rescue dog named Kita Marie who defends the family from squirrels on a regular basis; and a Tortoiseshell cat, Tink, who goes for walks, uses the bathroom outdoors, and loves belly rubs just like a dog.

Rainee

Receptionist

Worksheets from Rainee’s kindergarten days proclaim that she wanted to work with animals when she grew up—her dream hasn’t wavered since. Rainee has wanted to help pets ever since she was six years old! She’s proud to make a difference in her hometown community as a member of the Avalon Veterinary Hospital family.

Rainee was only 17 years old when she began an internship with a local animal hospital. Two months later, she was hired on as an employee! She’s worked in the veterinary field ever since. Rainee joined the Avalon Veterinary Hospital team in August of 2017, and greets clients and patients as a member of the front-desk staff.

Rainee has four dogs of her own at home: Cosmo, an elderly Bichon Frise; a Bichon Frise named Toby; Moose the French Mastiff, who will play fetch until he drops; and a retired military service German Shepherd named Chief who especially loves to howl along with police sirens. When she isn’t tending to pets’ needs here at the clinic or doting on her own canine companions, Rainee enjoys working out, cheering on the Oklahoma City Thunder, painting, camping, traveling, and spending time with her boyfriend.

Holley

Veterinary Technician

Holley was only 10 years old when she adopted her first puppy; their relationship lasted for 15 happy years, and Holley has held a deep love and respect for our canine companions ever since. For her, working in the field of veterinary medicine simply makes sense! Holley is one of the hospital’s Veterinary Technicians.

Holley first began working as a Kennel Technician while living in Harrison, Arkansas, and started training on-the-job to become a Veterinary Technician shortly afterward. She helped pets at that clinic for the next six years before moving on to another nearby hospital for a time. Next, Holley relocated to Tulsa, Oklahoma for her husband’s job and signed on at a corporate practice for the next four years. When she heard about an open position here at Avalon Veterinary Hospital from a friend, she jumped at her chance to better pets’ lives in a close-knit, family-centered setting—Holley joined the hospital family in June of 2017 and has been caring for the area’s pets and animal owners here ever since!

In her spare time, Holley enjoys relaxing with a good book and doting on her own pets at home. She and her family have three cats—C.C., Hobiecat, and the extra-grumpy Gertrude—as well as a dog named Poppins.

Kellie

Veterinary Assistant, Receptionist

Kellie grew up surrounded by animals, and was always helping stray or injured critters that she would come across. Helping others in whatever way she can is simply in Kellie’s nature! By working as a member of the Avalon Veterinary Hospital team, she gets to improve the lives of pets and those who care for them on a daily basis.

Kellie is originally from Naples, Florida and lived there her entire life before relocating to Broken Arrow in 2017 for her collegiate studies. She joined the team here at the hospital shortly afterward, and is proud to serve the area’s pet owners as a member of the front-desk staff and as a Veterinary Assistant. Kellie especially likes seeing patients reunited with their loving owners after an examination, procedure, or hospital stay!

Kellie’s interests outside of animal care include singing, horseback riding, hiking and kayaking in the great outdoors, and enjoying the company of her loveable kitten, Moon. Moon’s favorite pastimes include being held like a baby, getting tummy rubs, and pretending he’s a guard dog to protect Kellie from every possible threat.

Brianne

Veterinary Assistant, Receptionist

Brianne grew up right here in Broken Arrow, where she’s adored animals of all shapes and sizes ever since she was a little girl. She always knew that a career spent tending to pets’ needs would suit her perfectly! Brianne is proud to serve the area’s pets and animal owners here at Avalon Veterinary Hospital.

Brianne’s animal-care journey began when she started volunteering at a local wildlife rehabilitation center, where she got the chance to work hands-on with all manner of wild animals (including a bald eagle!). She then secured a position at a horse nursery before deciding to make the jump into veterinary medicine—Brianne joined the team here at Avalon Veterinary Hospital in late summer of 2017. She serves as a receptionist and Veterinary Assistant, and continues to learn something new during every shift!

Away from the office, Brianne enjoys cooking, cheering on her favorite sports teams, and spending time outdoors as much as possible. She and her boyfriend especially like to take their dogs with them on the water; Brianne shares her life with Beau, a Labrador/Rottweiler mix, as well as a Labrador/Chesapeake Bay Retriever mix puppy named Avy.
