Veterinary Technicians


  • Corrine Schmidt

    Corrine was one of ALVC's first technicians, joining Dr. Suzie in March of 1994.  She attended Cypress Creek High School in Texas and graduated in 1988.  She received on-site training at Staring Plaza Animal Hospital from 1989-1993 before coming to ALVC as a technician. She feels blessed that in addition to doing a job that she loves, she also gets to work with her twin sister Kerri everyday.  She and her husband Chep have a son, Caulin, and daughter, Allayna.  Their family pets include April, a senior Shepherd mix and Silver, a senior cat. When Corrine is not working at the clinic she is very active in her church doing children's ministry. She also loves camping, reading, and crafting. She is originally from Canada, and has lived in Indonesia and Mexico.

    Corrine's favorite part about working at ALVC is, 'Caring for the pets, especially during difficult times. Since I have been here so long, I have been able to be part of these pet’s and their family’s lives from their very first visit and for some until their last.'

  • Susan Miller

    Susan has worn many hats at ALVC since 2002.  She started out as a receptionist, but has worked as a veterinary technician for many years. She graduated with a BS from John A. Logan College as well as Banfield Paraprofessional Academy. At home Susan has 2 dogs, Tina the Border Collie mix and Sheila the Australian Shepherd. In addition to the veterinary field, she also bakes and decorates cakes. In her spare time she likes to hang out at the beach and go to the spa. 

    Susan's favorite part about working at ALVC is, 'I have the best job EVER! Even after all these years, I learn something new every day.'

  • Kathryn Lorden
