For as long as she can remember, Annamarie has had a passion for keeping things organized and helping a team to run like a well-oiled machine. She’s been in management roles almost her entire adult life. When the opportunity arose to combine that passion and experience with her lifelong love of pets, the choice was obvious! Annamarie is proud to serve as the Hospital Administrator here at Pet Doctor.
Annamarie began working at a pet hospital in Katy, Texas in 2007 to get her foot in the door of the veterinary world, and she hasn’t looked back since. She joined the Pet Doctor family in June of 2009, and couldn’t be happier to continue helping her team provide an exceptional level of personalized, high-quality pet care to the area’s animal parents. Annamarie loves to learn new things from Dr. Webb, and she especially enjoys tackling new administrative challenges.
In her time away from the office, Annamarie enjoys interior decorating, watching mystery programs, and spending quality time with her family. She and her husband, Kevin, have two children named Nick and Sara, and they’re also proud grandparents to three young boys. Annamarie shares her home with a pair of wonderful pets: a dog named Charlie who is the most loyal companion Annamarie has ever known, and a sweet Shih Tzu named Dora who will stand up to any dog she encounters, no matter the size.
Crystal was constantly around animals while growing up in her hometown of San Angelo, Texas. She even helped her father to care for the creatures on his ranch. There was truly never a dull moment, and Crystal never forgot the intense bonds she formed with her childhood companions. A career in veterinary medicine simply made sense!
Crystal’s veterinary journey began at an animal clinic in Bellevue, Nebraska in 2001. As a military spouse, she moved overseas in 2004, then returned to the United States from Germany in 2010. Crystal relocated to Texas and joined the Pet Doctor family in September of 2011, where she now serves as the supervisor of the clinic’s Customer Service Representative team. Her favorite part of her work is the way that it constantly keeps her on her toes—there are always new challenges to conquer on a daily basis, and Crystal finds that she never stops learning.
Crystal’s interests outside of veterinary medicine include traveling—she feels fortunate to have seen many areas of the world thanks to military life!—and spending time with her own pets at home. She has two Chihuahua mixes: Nani, who thinks she’s a hunting dog, and Niko, whose calm and gentle demeanor stands in sharp contrast to his sister.
Droina is originally from Romania, where she was always struck by the lack of proper care for pets. She knew that she wanted to make a difference in the lives of animals in whatever way she could. That’s why Dorina decided to become a veterinary professional! She’s been a part of the Pet Doctor family since the very beginning, and looks forward to continuing to care for the pets and animal parents of the area as the head of the surgery department.
Dorina’s veterinary career started when she signed on as a Kennel Technician. She soon realized that she wanted to do more hands-on work to care for pets, so she gained more experience by working in both general and emergency practices. She’s been working with Dr. Keith Webb since 1989, and has been here at Pet Doctor since the hospital’s doors opened for business.
Around the clinic, Dorina enjoys placing IV catheters and monitoring pets under anesthesia during surgery and teeth cleanings… and making sure they’re as comfortable as possible during their recoveries. Her absolute favorite part of the job is the relationships she’s formed with her clients and patients over the years—nothing beats seeing generations of pet owners come to the hospital for their pet care needs!
For Kevin, veterinary medicine is truly a family affair. His wife, Annamarie, serves as the hospital’s chief administrator! When she needed a reliable person to supervise the Technician team here at the clinic, Kevin was happy to step up—he’s been a member of the clinic team ever since.
Kevin was raised in East Texas and has lived here all his life. He joined the Pet Doctor team in March of 2019 on the recommendation of his wife, and he’s been enjoying every moment since. Kevin particularly likes helping to maintain a sense of structure and comradery around the clinic, and he loves to meet new people and their pets on a daily basis.
Away from work, Kevin is an avid car enthusiast and loves everything from old-school muscle cars to exotic sports cars. At home, he and Annamarie have two pets: Charlie, a stubborn but loveable Havanese, and a blonde Shih-Tzu named Dora.
Taylor has adored animals ever since her earliest days, but didn’t realize she wanted to pursue veterinary medicine until she took her first job in a pet clinic. Instantly, Taylor knew that it was the perfect path for her! Her passion hasn’t wavered—she’s now a Patient Care Coordinator with the Pet Doctor family.
Taylor is originally from Virginia, and it was there that she launched her journey in veterinary care by signing on at a local pet hospital to learn the ropes of the profession. In September of 2018, she relocated here to Texas and came across an opening at Pet Doctor. The rest is history! Taylor loves to meet and greet pets and their loving owners at the front desk, and she’s especially fond of going over post-surgery instructions with pet parents.
In her time away from work, Taylor would like to start fostering dogs and loves spending time with her own pup, Draco, at home. Draco is full of energy but is also the best cuddle-bug that Taylor knows!
Andrei has always wanted to do his part to give something back to the animals who have given him so much. For him, caring for the earth’s creatures is simply in his nature. Andrei gets to put his passion and skillset to good use on a daily basis—he’s a proud member of Pet Doctor’s Veterinary Technician team!
Andrei is originally from Romania and moved with his family to the United States in 2001. His veterinary journey began in Plano, Texas when he started working at a local pet clinic. It wasn’t long before he decided to expand his education in the world of animal care—Andrei returned to Romania and attended school to study veterinary technology.
After graduating and returning to the States, Andrei signed on here at Pet Doctor and has been caring for the area’s pets and animal owners ever since. He’s particularly fond of surgical work and loves the way that it keeps him on his toes. Andrei is also passionate about educating clients on the best care techniques for their beloved pets, because nothing beats knowing that he’s made a lasting impact for a pet at home!
Kirstin grew up on a large plot of land in Florence, Texas. Stray animals would occasionally wander onto the property, and Kirstin would always feed and nurture them—much to her father’s chagrin! Those early experiences helping to make a difference for pets left her with no doubt: a career in veterinary care would suit her perfectly. Kristin hasn’t looked back since.
Kirstin started her career by earning her Certified Pharmacy Technician’s license, then tried her hand as a chiropractic assistant. After a few more medical jobs, she decided to take a different path and explore the world of veterinary medicine. It wasn’t long before she had signed on as a Technician at a local pet hospital and started taking courses to become licensed! Kirstin has been a Veterinary Technician ever since, and came to the Pet Doctor team in September of 2020 after hearing her mother—a client herself—rave about the service she’d received here.
When she’s not at work, Kirstin enjoys reading, practicing yoga, running—she used to run five miles a day five days a week!—and making art. Woodworking is her most recent hobby, and she’s even used her skills to make a custom Father’s Day gift for her dad. At home, Kirstin shares her life with one pet: Zen, a Great Pyrenees who likes to woof softly at herself in the mirror before bedtime.
Stefinie frequently brought home stray cats when she was a little girl, and her father always told her that she ought to pursue veterinary medicine. Caring for animals has always been in her nature, and now she gets to do it for a living! Stefinie is a proud member of the Veterinary Technician team here at Pet Doctor.
Stefinie is from North Richland Hills, Texas and enrolled in school to study veterinary technology thanks to the encouragement of a close friend. A few months after starting, she found an opening for a Veterinary Technician position, where she was able to put her studies to good use on the job. Stefinie heard about an opening here at Pet Doctor a short time later and was happy to join the clinic team. She’s particularly fond of cytology work and studying samples under the microscope, but her favorite part of the job is getting to interact one-on-one with the area’s compassionate pet owners.
Stefinie’s favorite thing to do outside of work is curl up with a good book. At home, she and her husband share their lives with their three wonderful children, as well as multiple pets. The family has four dogs—Tommy, Shadow, Daisy Mae, and Toto—as well as three cats named Bella, Oliver, and Ding Dong. Stefinie and her family also foster pets to help out their local rescues!

For Abigail Conner, animals have always been the center of her life. And while she may have started out in human health care, it didn’t take her long to realize that animal medicine was her true passion. Being able to help pets get healthy when they are sick and see them live long, happy lives is an absolute dream come true for her!
Abigail joined the Pet Doctor team in March of 2021. While she’s currently working as a Veterinary Technician, her ultimate goal is to become a vet, just like her cousin Katelin. Clinically, Abigail’s favorite thing to do is watch dentals and surgeries. She is also fascinated by radiology. Being able to learn the anatomy and find out what is ailing a patient is mind blowing to her.
At home, Abigail is Mom to three fur-babies of her own: Olive Bear, Sophie and Lucy. Olive Bear loves cuddles, running around the park and getting as much attention as possible. Lucy is the newest addition to the family – an energetic pup who is well on her way to becoming a tug-o-war master.
In her free time, Abigail can often be found binge-watching movies or reading – especially if it has anything to do with Harry Potter. She also enjoys playing sports, including sand volleyball and softball. One of her most memorable moments occurred during the first round of softball playoffs. With both teams tied in the seventh inning, Abigail hit a walk-off homerun for the win!
Dana Brennan has always felt a strong connection with animals. She credits her dog Nala as being the one to inspire her career in the veterinary field. Nala’s multiple medical ailments meant countless trips to the vet, during which Dana was complimented on her intuition and dedication. When someone mentioned what an impact those skills could have from a professional standpoint, she decided to give it a shot. As it turns out, it was the perfect fit!
Dana initially got her feet wet by volunteering with animal transport, moving dogs and cats to other places to ensure optimal care. From there, she graduated to a shelter, where she continued to gain experience and industry knowledge. In September of 2021, Dana joined the Pet Doctor team as a CSR. She appreciates the opportunity it affords her to exercise both her people skills as well as her animal care skills. She particularly enjoys interacting with our patients, each of whom she treats as if they are her very own.
Originally from Long Island, NY, Dana’s family relocated to Dallas in 2016 in search of warmer weather. She is a proud mom of two pups: her beloved Nala, who loves to be dressed up and has Dana wrapped around her little paw; and Dixie, who is obsessed with ice cubes.
When she’s not busy working or cuddling with her dogs, Dana enjoys crocheting – a hobby she picked up from her grandmother. Her greatest achievement was finishing a queen-size blanket. She also enjoys spending time outdoors, particularly fishing or swimming.
When Lacee Pearson was younger, she always had a love for animals and a desire to help them. She got her very first opportunity when her cat Sugar went into labor and began experiencing complications. Lacee jumped into action immediately, helping to clear the kittens’ airways and saving their lives. It was at that very moment when she decided she wanted to work in the veterinary industry one day.
Lacee officially began to pursue her dream in 1988, when she enrolled for courses at the Veterinary Technician Institute in Dallas. Upon graduation, she was hired as a Vet Tech at a clinic where she spent 11 years. From there, she joined a different practice where she worked for 18 years. In September of 2021, Lacee joined the Pet Doctor team. In her role as CSR, she enjoys greeting our clients and their pets, answering questions and assisting in any way she can.
At home, Lacee cares for her two senior dogs: a Lhasa Apso named Trotter and a bossy long haired Chihuahua terrier mix named Foxy. In her spare time, Lacee enjoys gardening, which she finds both relaxing and rewarding. She also loves to fish, which she has been doing since she was old enough to hold a pole in her hand.
When Sara was a child, she would receive daily visits from a neighborhood cat named Tiger. When Tiger was in an accident and needed emergency medical attention, Sara remembers watching in awe at how lovingly the vet worked to save Tiger’s life. It was then that she decided the veterinary field would be her future. Being able to help animals the same way that vet did so many years ago is something that Sara takes great pride in!
Sara’s journey in the industry began as a Kennel Technician, which she did while attending high school. This experience officially solidified her desire to pursue veterinary medicine. Becoming a Veterinary Technician made perfect sense, because she loves people as much as she loves their fur babies. Professionally, Sara has a particular interest in radiology. She appreciates the opportunity to learn and the ability to contribute to saving and improving the lives of animals.
Outside of the clinic, Sara has 2 dogs of her own: Sargent, a perpetually youthful German shepherd and a new puppy named Dak. Her hobbies include enjoying the outdoors, fishing, spending time with family and, of course, playing with her dogs.
