I was raised in southeast Texas and started working in a veterinary clinic the summer I turned 13. I knew from that age I wanted nothing more than to be a veterinarian! I worked every summer and holiday at Groves Veterinary Clinic, gaining as much experience as I could. I graduated from Nederland High School in 1991 and went to Texas A&M University for my undergraduate education. I then went on to attend veterinary school at Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine. I graduated from vet school in 1999 and my husband and I moved to Austin in 2000. I worked in a couple of veterinary hospitals in town until I opened Austin Urban Veterinary Center in 2009. We have grown to a five doctor practice now and I love the relationships we have built with the downtown community! We continue to grow and plan to be in the downtown area for a long time!
My husband and I met at Texas A&M in 1992 and we have been married 21 years. We have two amazing boys, Gavin, 14, and Logan, 5. We have two dogs, Cassie the Frenchie and Gus the Terrier. We are super fortunate to have the majority of our family within an hour of us so we get to spend a lot of time with them. We love to snow ski, we enjoy the outdoors, and I love to scrapbook my kids’ lives!!
I recently moved from Virginia, where my partner and I had our own pet sitting business. I could not be happier living in such a dog-friendly city, and I love that I get to meet new pups every week!

Hi, my name is Nick and I am, you guessed it, a dog lover. Whether it’s a Saturday lunch out at yard bar or a Sunday out at Zilker, you’re probably going to catch me with a pup whether I’m on the clock or not. I love getting to know dogs of all sizes, shapes and breeds, and i find there’s no better way to do that than a nice long walk!
I'm Tyler and I just recently moved to Texas from Virginia. I have been here only a short while but I'm certain I have found my forever home. My happy place in Austin with all of its fur babies!

I'm a local Austinite with a lifelong passion and love for all animals. I have been caring for animals since I was young and I truly feel the most comfortable when I'm helping others and their pets. I will treat your fur babies as if they are my own.
I was born and raised in Houston. I come from a family of animal lovers and grew up with pets. I worked with a pet sitting company in Houston for 6 1/2 years before I moved to Austin. I love living downtown and walking around and exploring with dogs.
