Our Team

Ava

CEO

Ava was found on the side of the road covered in bumps, bruises, and fleas, and brought here to the clinic that she would eventually be named after. The team helped her feel better, and the rest is history—Ava quickly decided that she would like to develop her management skills by sticking around! She’s been a member of the Avalon Veterinary Hospital family ever since.

Here at the hospital, Ava spends her time checking up on patients and relaxing in her basket. She’s most productive when she’s able to get at least four hours of sleep during the work day—her proudest accomplishment is developing the proper loving and cuddling skills in the Avalon Veterinary Hospital staff so that they’re able to pass along those talents to other visiting pets.

When she has time between her beauty naps and her duties as CEO, Ava enjoys eating and would stuff herself during every meal if she could. She’s still trying to talk Avalon Veterinary Hospital’s care team into tripling her diet plan!

Tianny

Receptionist and On-Site Nutritionist

Tianny can’t remember a time when she wasn’t passionate about animal care. She would constantly help all of the hungry, hurt, or sick animals in her neighborhood, and started volunteering with animals by the time she was only 13. Tianny hasn’t stopped caring for pets since!

A Tulsa native, Tianny first worked at a local hospital to gain crucial hands-on experience—she even had the opportunity to work with farm animals!—before transferring to another hospital in Tulsa. Tianny began studying at Northeastern State University in Broken Arrow, and she was thrilled to join the Avalon Veterinary Hospital team shortly afterward. She serves as a front-desk receptionist and as the clinic’s on-site nutritionist.

Jen

Receptionist

When her own cat fell ill, it was up to Jen to nurse her pet back to health. She found herself administering subcutaneous fluids, syringe-feeding, and even expressing her cat’s bladder—it’s safe to say that these experiences made a permanent impression! It wasn’t long before Jen decided that she wanted to help others’ pets in the same way; that’s why she decided to become a veterinary professional.

Jen is originally from Brunswick, Maine and began her animal-care journey as a groomer. After working with pets at another hospital for a time, Jen decided to look for a better opportunity—that’s when she joined the team here at Avalon Veterinary Hospital.

Jen is also fond of doting on the clinic’s visiting kittens!
