Our Care Team
Adam stumbled into the veterinary field by accident when he was 23 years old. His sister-in-law had just started working at Smyrna Animal Hospital, and told him about an open position. He had never considered working with animals, but it wasn’t long before he fell in love with the profession!

Since his official retirement in 2006, Mick has applied his love for dogs and cats to become the Groomer for Smyrna Animal Hospital. He says that he loves to work with people, and that he considers dogs to be “persons”, capable of communication. He says: “dogs are not human, it’s true. Yet, there’s this sense there’s a person staring back at you.” He relates that this is an important factor to consider for one who bathes dogs and cats. Most pets have a mind of their own, and an idea of how they think things should go in the clinic. It will go a lot smoother in the bath, he says, if one does not ignore the “preconceived notions” the animal may have, and work to make them more comfortable. About cats, Mick had this to say: “Cats are “persons”, too, but they don’t need you as much as dogs do. I love cats differently than dogs. Cats are independent, cunning, and extremely athletic. There is a lot to love about cats, but you have to respect their attitudes.
Misty knows that being a Veterinary Technician isn’t just about helping pets—it’s about helping their owners as well! She always wanted to help both people and animals, and serving as a Technician allows her to do just that.

Fiorella has harbored a passion for animals ever since she was young, and never took for granted all that our pets offer us.

Diana constantly begged her parents for a puppy while she was growing up—although they weren’t always keen on the idea, they eventually gave in.

Megan spent many of her childhood summers growing up on her family’s horse farm in Milledgeville, Georgia, where a love of animal care developed early on.

Jonathan has had a soft spot for animals ever since he can remember, but his mind was made up during his time serving overseas as a member of the United States Army. One day when rock-climbing in a small town outside of Mosul, Iraq, he and a few friends happened across an injured dog. They hiked 17 miles back to their camp, the dog in tow, and nursed him back to full health! Ever since, Jonathan knew that he would love to work with animals professionally.
