Our Careteam

Adam Rhodes
Veterinary Assistant
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!

Adam was born in Marietta, Georgia. He filled out an application in March of 2003 and had his interview the next day. He has served as a Veterinary Assistant ever since. Adam particularly likes assisting with surgeries, and also enjoys bathing animals because of the one-on-one time he can get with pets.

At home, Adam lives with his wife and two children. The family has three pets: Keeper, Hope, and Little Bit.
Cathy Ennis
Head Veterinary Technician
29 years ago, Cathy walked into the clinic looking for a job. She came out with a career! Dr. Wolf called Cathy into his office, interviewed her, and hired her right on the spot. Now she serves as the Head Veterinary Technician at Smyrna Animal Hospital.

Cathy grew up right here in Marietta. When she started at the clinic, she bathed pets, pulled blood, and took x-rays. In 2004, she was given the opportunity to take the Georgia licensing test, which she passed to become a certified Veterinary Technician. Her favorite parts of the job are preparing for surgeries, monitoring surgeries, and seeing a pet the whole way through until they’re healthy enough to go home.

Cathy is married and has two daughters. She has one pet at home, a dog named Piper. She’s also taken in turtles, rabbits, a chinchilla, several squirrels, and a lot of cats!

Outside of work, Cathy is active in her church and even traveled to Alaska on a missionary trip last year! She also likes boating and going to the lake with family and friends.
Charlotte Rhodes
Office Manager
Having been downsized from the banking industry and having to drive to Buckhead every day, Charlotte was looking for something less stressful and closer to home. She applied at Smyrna Animal Hospital and was hired in March of 2003 as a receptionist. When the previous office manager moved on, Charlotte was ready to fill the position!

Charlotte has always enjoyed math and accounting, so she’s a great fit for the Office Manager role. She says that when the numbers start running together, she can take a break by going to the treatment or boarding area of the clinic and love on a pet—it’s a great stress reliever!

Charlotte is married and has four children as well as two grandchildren. At home, she has two Chihuahuas, a Yorkie, a Black Lab, and a cat. When she isn’t working or spending time with her family, Charlotte enjoys watching college football, reading, and attending church.
Kate Bennett
Veterinary Assistant, Exam Room Assistant
After exploring various career options and degree programs, Kate knew she wanted to do something in the medical field. She realized she would probably have more varied medical experiences in the veterinary field, so her mind was made up!

Born and raised in Lithia Springs, Georgia, Kate was hired at the clinic in August of 2004 when she was going into her senior year of high school. She continued her education at Kennesaw State University, in biology and chemistry.

Kate enjoys acting as the “Air Traffic Controller” around the clinic, helping to expedite and provide quality appointments for all clients and patients. She loves building relationships with clients and hearing about the various relationships people have with their pets.

Kate has one dog and a cat of her own at home. Snickers is a 16-year-old mutt who likes being a couch potato. Frank Sinatra is a 12-year-old tomcat that rules the roost!
Misty Rhodes
Veterinary Technician
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.

Born and raised in Georgia, Misty came to the clinic in 1998 to apply right out of high school. Once hired, she started school at Kennesaw State University. Later, she took the state board test and became a registered Veterinary Technician. Wound care is a specific interest of Misty’s; she loves seeing how treatment makes a difference each day.

Misty is married and has two children. She also shares her home with three dogs: Little Bit, a Jack Russell; Keeper, a Chihuahua; and Hope, also a Chihuahua. Little Bit and Hope are actually rescues from Smyrna Animal Hospital!
Ryan Carmichael
Ryan grew up around animals, and was always able to coax even the most skittish cats into approaching her. She knew that her appreciation for pets coupled with the veterinary industry would be a perfect match! Ryan feels fortunate to improve the lives of the area’s animal companions on a daily basis.

A native of Smyrna, Ryan joined the hospital family in 2015 and serves as a receptionist. She particularly likes getting to see new pets visit the clinic and grow over time.

Ryan’s interests outside of veterinary medicine include fantasy and science fiction—she attends Dragon Con in Atlanta every year!—as well as art, music, and attending concerts. Ryan is also passionate about photography and even holds a Bachelor’s degree in the field. She has one pet of her own at home: August, a bobtail cat who has become fast friends with her roommate’s dog.
Megan Snyder
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. Ever since she can remember, she’s been passionate about helping others—as a receptionist with the Smyrna Animal Hospital team, Megan gets to do just that every day!

Megan joined the hospital family in June of 2016, and has been serving the pets and animal owners of Smyrna ever since. Her favorite part of the job is working alongside her outstanding fellow team members to make a lasting impact on the community’s families.

Outside of animal care, Megan’s interests include horseback riding, genealogy, volunteering, 2D and 3D art, and developing and designing virtual products. She lives with one pet of her own at home: Jake, a rescued Maine Coon cat who enjoys playing catch, fetching toys, and getting long belly rubs.
