Lisa has been a resident of Myrtle Beach for four years. A New Jersey native who worked in a physical therapy office for nine years before relocating to South Carolina. Her passion for animals was what brought her to the decision to leave the human medical field and pursue a career as a veterinary assistant. Lisa spent four years with another area clinic before we were so blessed to add her to our team. Lisa enjoys spending time with her daughter and their three Staffordshire Bull Terriers Aiden, Ready and Bubba. Her dogs lead an active lifestyle by participating in a variety of dog sports from lure coursing to weight pulling. An advocate for responsible dog ownership and training, Lisa's pets boast a number of titles from AKC Canine Good Citizen, obedience, Rally-O, Lure Coursing, Therapy dog, temperament Test and Weight pull. As you can see Lisa spends a lot of time with her pets and is very proud of their accomplishments.
