Growing up, Jacklyn never let a stray pet go without a meal. Her love of animals never wavered, and now she's been working in the veterinary field since she was a junior in high school! Jacklyn used to work at an animal hospital that was within walking distance from her house. When the veterinarian there retired and the practice went out of business, Jacklyn's job search brought her to Hefner Road. She knew from the very first day working there that it was the place she needed to be! As a Veterinary Technician, Jacklyn is especially interested in parasitology and looking at samples under the microscope. She loves the challenge and excitement of a new case! Dr. Purvis even lets her take organism samples for her scientific collection.
At home, Jacklyn has several pets—she refers to them as her personal zoo! She has a 96-pound lap dog named Dr. Carter, two box turtles, a Mexican red kneed tarantula and a feline named Cowboy. Jacklyn's hobbies include vintage shopping, thrifting, and antiquing. She also likes collecting insects, spending time outdoors, and camping with her pup.
Kevin was born in OKC, but for the most part grew up in the Yukon/Mustang area. He graduated from Mustang High School in May of 2013. Growing up, Kevin had 7 dogs, 2 cats, and 1 gerbil, named Glenn. Two of them are still with his dad, along with two new, energetic boxers, and one is with his mom. In about 7th grade, he decided that he wanted to become a veterinarian. Kevin started his career in the veterinary field at Hefner Road in the fall of 2013. Even though he loves working with the animals, Kevin has worked his way up to receptionist and gets to meet the fellow dog and cat lovers that bring in their animals. During his free time, he likes to find new movies and TV shows on Netflix, volunteer at his church, or spend time with friends and family.
Michaela was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona until 2009 when she relocated to OKC, to be closer to her Native family, and finished school at PCN and Francis Tuttle. Growing up she had two Golden Retrievers, a retired Greyhound, a Dachshund, a Havanese, a black cat, and an assortment of rodents; she knew from a young age she wanted to work in the Veterinary field. Michaela found Hefner Road in 2013, fresh out of high school; she loved working the kennels and spending everyday with animals. After leaving for a couple years to broaden her skill set, she returned in 2016 to her heart’s calling: pets and the people that love them too! Now she works the front reception and as a veterinary assistant, her favorite work passion is dental health!
Michaela’s hobbies outside of work include building props and dressing up for local comic conventions, playing PC games with her friends, and watching documentaries.
