Jenn.jpg
JENNIFER CUTCHENS, LVT, CPhT

Jennifer has been working in vet med since 2000 and also is a certified pharmacy technician. Jenn's great grandfather was a veterinarian in Ozark, AL, thus spurring her interest towards the veterinary field. Her favorite subset of veterinary medicine is the field of internal medicine as she loves problem-solving complex medical concerns. Jenn has a zoo at home: a parrot, cockatiel, multiple cats and dogs, chickens, and occasionally a goat, live under her care, proving that Jenn is not only a skilled technician with companion animals, but also with exotics and farm animals too! A fun fact: Jenn's favorite ice cream is peach (the good stuff from Bruster’s). 

Veterinary Technician

Heather.jpg
HEATHER WILLIAMS
Veterinary Assistant
with MMAH since 2017

Heather is originally from Orlando, Florida, and has been working at  Moores Mill Animal Hospital since 2017. Her favorite part of working here is preventing ailments in the well pets that come to see us, and is determined to save the lives of the sick animals that come through our doors. Heather's favorite animal is the dog, which is pretty evident since both her fur kids are of the canine variety. Heather sees her greatest accomplishment as the fact that she has been in veterinary medicine for over 10 years, but still loves the work she does, the people she helps, and the animal's lives she saves.

Morgan.jpg
MORGAN SIDES
Veterinary Assistant
with MMAH since 2019

Morgan has been with Moores Mill Animal Hospital since 2019 and her favorite part of the job is phlebotomy! She is so gentle when obtaining bloodwork from our patients, but is also efficient so that there is minimal stress. Morgan is passionate about horses and even has one of her own named Hank. In addition to Hank, Morgan has a Pitbull mix named Harley and a Rottweiler/Boxer mix named Prince. Her furbabies keep her busy, that's for sure! Morgan feels that her greatest accomplishment is becoming more confident in herself and her work, as she has worked diligently on growing a constructive and positive attitude towards life's responsibilities and challenges.

LINDSEY ROGERS
Veterinary Assistant
with MMAH since 2021

Lindsey has worked as a receptionist with Moores Mill Animal Hospital but is now pursuing the duties of a veterinary assistant! Lindsey has graduated from Auburn University with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science and Industries and is now focusing on her Master's degree with Auburn. Her favorite part of working for MMAH is putting a smile on our client's faces by caring for their furbabies as if they were her own and by engaging in wonderful customer service. Lindsey's favorite type of animal is a giraffe and although she does not currently have any furbabies of her own, she plans to get one in the future!

BrookeC.jpg
BROOKE CORBITT
Receptionist
with MMAH since 2018

Brooke is an Auburn native and is one of the many bright faces waiting to welcome you to our clinic. Her favorite part of working at Moores Mill Animal Hospital is getting to catch up with clients and greeting all the wonderful furbabies we see. Brooke's favorite animal species is the dog, but specifically of the German Shorthair Pointer breed; see if you can catch sight of her German Shorthair Pointer, Whiskey, hanging out behind our desk! One of Brooke's greatest accomplishments is buying her first house this past year and making it cozy for herself and Whiskey!

ELLIE ARMSTRONG-WRIGHT
Receptionist
with MMAH since 2021

Ellie has been with MMAH since April of 2021 and has already made such a large impact on our clients! As we moved to curbside due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ellie was often the face of the clinic as she met with clients at their car windows. Ellie graduated with a Bachelor's of Industrial Design from Auburn University and is now interested in pursuing a career in neonatal nursing. Her favorite part of working in our veterinary clinic is seeing how excited the various animals are when they come see us; the tail wags and kisses she gets make Ellie's day! Since she has a big tabby cat, Ellie's favorite type of animal is cats, specifically the chunky, fluffy ones. 

Tommie.jpg
MS. TOMMIE THAXTON
Client Experience Attendant and Receptionist
with MMAH since 2021

Ms. Tommie has been with MMAH since April of 2021 and is often the first face that clients and patients see when they arrive at the clinic! Her favorite part about working at MMAH is seeing furbabies reunited with their owners: the wagging tail, cries and barks of excitement, meows of joy, and the immediate demand for parental pats on the head. Although Ms. Tommie loves all animals, she is partial to dogs as she has two Daschunds of her own! That being said, she also has a cat, so it's a close call on her favorite animal species. Her greatest life accomplishment so far was being able to minister to others while she was a nurse, as well as being blessed with a great family.
