Cheryl Smith - Practice Manager

I got into the veterinary field by accident, but quickly realized it was what I had been looking for most of my working career. On a daily basis, I get to experience the responsibility that comes with educating and supporting the individuals, families and pets who put their trust in our team to keep them healthy, and help them through the tough times. As a Practice Manager, I’ve realized how fortunate I am to be able to support our hospital team in providing for our patients and client’s as we provide an important service to our community. I love what I do and being part of the amazing things we do here. It truly is a blessing to work with such a great staff and to truly enjoy coming into work every day! In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband, two adorable Persian kitties (Caesar and Cleopatra) and my five grandbabies!!!
