Our Careteam

Andrea
Office Manager / Registered Veterinary Technician
Andrea grew up on a farm in Anderson, IN. At the age of 10, she attended a cattle auction with her father and grandfather. One of the cows they bought went into labor and the vet had to pull the calf. He let Andrea help, and she was hooked. Despite a few detours along the way, Andrea’s path eventually led her back to where she belonged: working with animals.

Initially, Andrea pursued a career in accounting because it was practical, and she was good at it. It wasn’t her passion, however, so she enrolled in International Business College Vet Tech Institute. A couple of years after graduating, Andrea was invited back as an instructor, which she did until 2020, when she joined the PVC team. Professionally, she loves educating clients on the importance of preventative care.

Andrea and her husband, Chris, have been happily married for nearly three decades and are the proud parents of three adult children. Their furry kids include three dogs: Gus, Jaq, and Rue; two cats: Fluffy and Flame; and several pygmy goats. Andrea’s favorite pastimes include reading and gardening.

Eric
Veterinary Technician
Eric is a proud Kansas City native, born and bred. Growing up, his passions included cheering on the Chiefs and Royals, fishing with his dad and brothers, camping with the boy scouts, and being around animals. As a child, Eric watched Jaws and saw the massive shark not as a terrifying creature, but as a misunderstood soul who just needed a hug.

Unlike many of his colleagues, Eric decided later in life to finally pursue his passion for pets. He enrolled in Harrison College and graduated at the top of his class at age 39. From there, Eric spent five years at an emergency clinic, then another two years in general practice before joining the Pendleton team in May of 2021. Professionally, Eric has a knack for calming scared patients. He also has an unusual interest in cleaning abscesses. As he puts it, ‘the grosser, the better’.

At home, Eric and his wife share a son and many pets, including an Irish Setter named Finnigan, who thinks he’s a goat and likes to climb on the house, and three cats: Othello, a senior who loves napping with his people; Reese (Goblin), a three-legged rescue who loves people and grouching at the other cats; and Adallo, who is named after adelie penguins because he’s black and white.

When he’s not busy working or spending time with family (two-legged, three-legged, and four), you can usually find Eric fishing, attending Chiefs games, or participating in his Eagle Scout duties.

Taylor
Registered Veterinary Technician
Taylor grew up playing “vet” with all of her family dogs and cats, as well as her stuffed animals. She’s had a passion for the field of animal care ever since she was a little girl! Taylor decided to dedicate her life to helping all of the pets she possibly can—she loves being able to make a difference in the lives of families by making sure their companions stay happy and healthy.

Taylor is a native of Anderson, Indiana and studied nursing and radiology in college before taking time off to raise her first daughter. She was six months pregnant with her second child when she enrolled at Harrison College to study veterinary technology—the rest is history, and Taylor is now proud to help pets and their loving owners as a Registered Veterinary Technician.

Taylor joined the Pendleton Veterinary Clinic family in March of 2017, and especially enjoys running anesthesia during surgical procedures and helping pets to recover from dermatological issues. Her favorite part of the job, though, is getting to work alongside a team of compassionate, skilled animal-lovers just like herself on a daily basis!

Most of Taylor’s free time away from work is spent enjoying the company of her family and pets. She lives with her boyfriend, Kyle; two wonderful young daughters, Ava and Ana (Ava just competed in and won her very first horse show, and Ana isn’t far behind!); and plenty of animal companions. The furry side of the family includes Snow, a cat who was Taylor’s first surgery patient during Technician school; four dogs who go by Keva, Echo, Tito, and Whiskey; and a pair of horses named Stormey and Angel.
Olivia
Veterinary Assistant
Olivia grew up in Daleville and Lapel, where she showed animals in the 4-H club for 10 rewarding years. Her early experiences showing dogs, rabbits, poultry, and swine made a lasting impression—she always knew that she would love to care for the earth’s creatures as a part of the veterinary world! Olivia’s passion never quit, and she now gets to help pets daily as a Veterinary Technician.

Olivia attended Harrison College to study veterinary technology and has worked in a number of general-practice animal clinics since graduating. She joined the Pendleton Veterinary Clinic family in August of 2019 and couldn’t be happier to serve the area’s pets and animal owners.

Olivia still trains and shows dogs in American Kennel Club events during her free time; in total, she’s been showing dogs for 18 years. Her dog, Wrangler, was the number-one in the country for his breed in 2019! Olivia also enjoys horseback riding, fishing, camping, and spending quality time with her family at home. She has a son, Gavin, a rabbit named Cuddles, and two dogs: the aforementioned Wrangler, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, and a Golden Retriever who goes by Henry.
Jaime
Client Service Representative
Jaime grew up right here in Pendleton with two older brothers and an innate love of everything furry and four-legged. Even at a young age, she knew she wanted to spend as much time as possible with animals, even if it was just to sit with them. Jaimie fulfilled her childhood dream in August of 2020, when she changed careers and joined the Pendleton Veterinary Clinic team.

At home, Jaime is happily married. She and her husband, Kevin, have two sons, whom Jaime describes as her greatest inspiration in life. Their family is made complete with their attention-loving dog, Scooby, their cat-tree climbing kitty, Lucky, and their other cat, Axel, who is the resident lazy bones.
Karlie
Customer Service Representative
Karlie grew up in Henry County in the middle of a cornfield with two cats, a dog, and a whole lot of space to run and trees to climb. Shortly after Karlie’s third birthday, her family adopted Roscoe, a beagle basset hound mix. The two were inseparable right through Karlie’s high school years. When Roscoe crossed the Rainbow Bridge, Karlie decided she wanted to honor his memory by helping animals for the rest of her life.

Karlie’s career journey began at the New Castle Career Center, where she completed a class in veterinary science. She then worked in a clinic as an intern and started her own grooming business on the side. The desire to return to a clinical setting drove Karlie to join the Pendleton Veterinary Clinic’s team in November of 2023. Her favorite part of the job is welcoming new puppies and kittens.

Outside of the clinic, Karlie has a couple of animal companions of her own, including a goat and a horse. Having completed all 10 years of 4H, she’s an old pro at caring for livestock. She is currently in the process of breeding her goat so she can expand her furry family.
Kristy
Customer Service Representative
After spending many years in the human mental health field, Kristy decided it was time to change gears and focus on clients who had four legs and fur. In weighing her career options in the veterinary field, she considered the fact every pet has a person, and given her love of helping others, a job as a CSR seemed like the perfect fit!

Kristy joined the Pendleton Veterinary Clinic team in April of 2022. It was her first experience in the animal health care field, and she has no intention of ever leaving! In the short time she’s been here so far, Kristy has already learned so much and looks forward to continuing her journey for many years to come!

Outside of work, Kristy shares her life with her husband, Carl. Together, they have four children, six grandchildren, and have fostered 83 children over the years. Their animal family consists of two dogs, two cats, two ducks, 24 chickens, and a guinea pig.
