Receptionists


  • Kerri Schmidt

    Kerri became ALVC's first receptionist in 1994.  Originally from Canada, she has lived in Mexico, Indonesia, and several other places in the United States before landing in south Louisiana. She is married and has two daughters.  Her furry family includes Missy her senior Black Mouth Cur and Jasper & Ella the cats. She feels very blessed to work at ALVC but it is even better that she gets to work with her twin sister Corrine.  Her kids keep her busy, and she also teaches Wednesday night kids classes at church and a preschool class on Sundays in the Awana kids club.  In her spare time, she likes to read and relax in the backyard. 

    Kerri's favorite parts about working at Azalea Lakes are, 'No two days are the same! It's never boring. I love interacting with our clients and their pets. Love, love, love the staff and vets here.'

  • Wendy Lincoln

    Wendy began working 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 2 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!'

  • Patsy Scavone

    Patsy is our kennel manager and one of our receptionists. She has been working at ALVC since May of 2011.  She graduated from Louisiana State University in 2009 with a B.S. in Animal Science.  When she's not working with animals at the clinic, she is usually horseback riding and tending to her own animals, which include the horses, dogs, cats, ducks, chickens, goats, and pot-bellied pigs. Patsy enjoys the outdoor life and if she does get to get away, it's always to the beach! 

    Patsy's favorite parts about working at Azalea Lakes are, 'Kittens and the occasional farm animal.'
