Kerri became ALVC’s very first receptionist in 1994. It has been her pleasure to watch the practice grow from one vet, one tech and one receptionist to the practice it is today with 5 vets and the 25 support staff that it takes to help our clients and their pets. Originally from Canada, she has lived in Mexico, Indonesia and several places across the US before landing in South Louisiana which she now calls home. She is married and has two beautiful daughters. Her furry family includes 2 cats, Jasper and Ella, and two dogs, Penelope and Chance. She loves working at the clinic and one of the perks is working alongside her twin sister Corrine who is one of the surgical techs. When not at work she enjoys helping at her church with Children’s ministry. In her spare time, she loves to read, go to the beach or to go camping. Kerri’s favorite part about working at Azalea Lakes is, “no two days are the same and it's never boring! I love interacting with clients and their pets. Love, love, love the vets and the staff I work with.
Wendy began working at the front desk at ALVC in April 2007. She attended LSU and took classes in animal science as well as mass communications. She is married and has several pets at home, including 2 dogs, 3 cats and 4 rabbits that are 'ambassadors' for Magic Happens Rabbit Rescue which she founded in 2004. In addition to her own pets, she also fosters several adoptable rabbits and sometimes guinea pigs and hamsters as well. She also spent over 10 years with the Girl Scout horse program at Camp Marydale, and still enjoys horseback riding when she has the chance. When she's not working or running the rescue, Wendy enjoys photography, crafting and spending time outdoors.
Wendy's favorite part of working at ALVC is, 'Helping people with their pets and meeting so many friendly faces - both furry and human!'
