Hi, I’m Bri! I am new to the AMC family as of July 2023, but I have been in the veterinary field for over 10 years. I went to Morehead State University for Veterinary Technology and became a licensed technician in the summer of 2018. I received my bachelor’s degree in May of 2019. In my free time, I like to play video games and spend time with my family and pets.

I also enjoy making a positive difference in the lives of my patients and their owners. Outside of the hospital, I am a caregiver for an elderly couple and an artist where I sell my art at local venues. I love camping and taking spontaneous adventures/trips. I am a momma to 3 furbabies. A Bichon Frise named Cotton, and two cats named Squeaker and Gracie. I look forward to meeting you and your furbabies soon!

Stacy H

Vet Assistant

I am a Veterinary Assistant here at AMC. Although I am new to the AMC team, I found my passion for the veterinary field in 2000 where I worked for a small animal clinic in my hometown in Ohio. This led me to eventually going to
school and receiving an Associates Degree in Surgical Technology. My family and I moved to the Frankfort area in August 2022, and I am looking forward to bringing the best possible veterinary care to the residents of the capital city of Kentucky. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two children, traveling to Ohio to see my grandchildren, and caring for my many furbabies of 4 great Pyrenees, a Boston Terrier named Edward, and currently 8 cats. My hobbies include crafting, collecting crystals, and attending local live music events.

Receptionists

Brandie
Receptionist

I joined the AMC team in November of 2019. I have 10+ years working in reception/customer service and thrives to give clients, their pets and families the best care and attention they deserve. I grew up and living in Versailles, but have adopted Frankfort as a second home. I enjoy the tight knit community and all the wonderful residents and their pets I’ve been able to meet. When I’m not helping our clients, I enjoy time with my husband and 3 children. We go camping and to the lake as much as possible. With 3 children, school and sports are important so not much time gets spent relaxing. Our 5.5 year old chocolate lab, Oakley, and our 1.5 year old chihuahua, ChiChi, are both cherished additions to the madness. They think they’re human and one of the kids, we think they are too! Family is very important to me and I’m very proud to be part of the AMC family.
