Hello! My name is Penny and I’m the Office Manager at Woodstock Veterinary Hospital. My passion in life is my family and animals. I have two amazing children, Victoria and Hunter, an active lifestyle, and an Animal Cruelty Blog that keeps me busy. I love working with Dr. Bustelo and Dr. Salazar, we share the same principles when it comes to being a voice for animals. I’m a firm believer that charity starts at home and I’m very thankful that I work in a profession that allows me to practice my beliefs daily.
I am Lorie. Married and live in Canton, Ga. I am Canadian and moved to Georgia in 2005. I started working for Woodstock Veterinary Hospital in August of 2007. I enjoy meeting our clients with all their furry family and appreciate the opportunity to care for their pets.
Hi, I’m Kendall. I grew up in Powder Springs with my four sisters and one brother. My large family has always shared a love for animals and never had a house without multiple pets running around. Even today at family events pets always outnumber people. I adopted my own dog, Kahlua, while I was still in high school. After graduating as a Harrison Hoya I continued working in the veterinary field for nine years before moving to Woodstock, with my fiancée Gibson. I am currently enrolled in the Pennfoster program to obtain my RVT license, in hopes to furthermore advance in the veterinary field, and eventually work in specialty. In my free time I love doing anything outdoors, including hiking, kayaking, and traveling, as well as painting and photography.
Why do I do this? I have always had a passion for animals and can’t imagine doing anything other than giving these creatures the love and care that they so effortlessly dote upon on. Nothing brings me more joy than the opportunity to learn and grow in a field I genuinely love.
I have been working with animals since Spring of 2005. I’ve had the privilege of working in various areas in the same field, including kennel, vet assistant, grooming, and office work. I graduated from Liberty University with a Business degree in 2013, but still find that work with animals is my calling. I have been a Cherokee county resident since 1999 and now reside in downtown Woodstock, where I continue to groom dogs. I live with my husband, children, and several dogs and cats. In Fall 2014 I joined the Woodstock Veterinary Hospital Team and have enjoyed expanding my knowledge in the animal health industry.
Hello! I am Drew, and I have lived here in Canton, Georgia my whole life. I love animals! As I was growing up I was always told that I would be a great vet. I have two dogs at home that love to go on adventures with me. I’m currently attending Kennesaw State University studying Software Engineering.
Hi, I’m Sarah! I was born and raised in Georgia. I have a Boxer named Diesel and a cat named Lucy. I love spending my time outdoors with my friends and family. I have been working with animals since I was a Sophomore in High School, volunteering here with Dr. Bustelo and Dr. Salazar. Working with animals has been my passion since I was little.
“Hi, I’m Sassy! Welcome to my home! I have lived here at Woodstock Veterinary Hospital for approximately 13 years. I moved in when I was 2 years old, when my owners couldn’t take care of me anymore, and the wonderful doctors decided to give me a chance and join their family. I quickly learned that these humans were trainable, so I decided I would stay and make this my new home!
I may greet you as you arrive, depending on my schedule. I like to sleep the day away. My main focus is eating and getting attention, on my terms, of course! I will talk to you if I feel like it, and when I’m done I will simply walk away. I may lick you endearingly and then might surprise you with a “love bite”.
So, next time to come in to my home, please take some time and come and pet my head, or at least listen to what’s on my mind! See you all soon!”
Hello! My name is Amy, and I’m married and have three beautiful children: Alyssa, Mark Jr., and Kyle. My husband Mark and I moved our family from Long Island, NY, here to Woodstock in 2005. After raising my family my love of animals led me here to Woodstock Veterinary Hospital, where they welcomed me into their family. I am grateful for the people that I meed every day, and especially their furry friends.
