Lauren has been working with animals in some form or another since she could walk. She is a dental guru, our resident tooth fairy, and a stellar aide.
In her free time, Lauren loves to read. Lauren also loves horses, dogs, and cats. To prove it, she has a large crew of her own! Lauren is also food motivated and can be bought with treats and goodies!!
Lauren dislikes Facebook - almost as much as she dislikes sitting still. However, recently she caved, becoming a productive member of the social media world. She has visited Scotland and Ireland and would love to go back some day.
Kendra has been in the veterinary field for 8 years and loves all animals, big and small. Kendra will greet you and you fur-baby with true love and care. She has 7 cats and 1 dog at home. Her love for cats....especially kittens has earned her the nickname "clinic kitten thief".
When Kendra is not working you can often find her at the gym, because she is a gym junkie. Kendra is a loving wife to Will and an amazing mom to her 2 children. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family, friends and her fur-babies and visiting Disney World.
Dawne promises to walk your pet before surgery and cuddle your pet while it is waking up after surgery.
Dawne is such a hard worker that it is possible you will see her one moment, blink your eyes, and she will be gone-because she just never stops! If you don't see her inside the clinic, she is most assuredly making the outside beautiful. She is an avid Christian and her favorite Bible verse is Eph 2:8-9.
Dawne loves her grandson AJ, gardening, reading, and is a huge Carolina Gamecock fan. Her favorite food is pizza and you will probably never see her without a Pepsi in hand. Dawne's mantra is "You have dogs to adore you and cats to ignore you to keep your ego in check." Dawne has 1 dog and 5 cats!
Sparky is our clinic mascot and he started out as many a young pup does. As he grew up and made his way in the world, Sparky met many dogs and cats that didn't receive proper medical care or didn't have homes where they were loved, and he wanted to be a part of the solution.
Sparky joined the SCVC team in December of 2012 as the marketing specialist, and these days gets out whenever he can to educate the public about all the wonderful services Spears Creek Veterinary Clinic provides.
Taylor is a recent graduate of Clemson University. She started with SCVC as an ATEC student in high school and she currently attends school at the University of Georgia's College of Veterinary Medicine.
Taylor's love of animals first started with the Pit Bull breed and her desire to stand up for the well-being of all creatures inspired her to pursue a career in the veterinary field. When she receives her degree, she would like to work with horses and other large breed animals.
She loves all outdoor activities, especially going to the lake and hiking. Taylor has a pit bull, a lab mix, and fish but dreams of owning a bearded dragon.
Fun fact...she is a Type 7 on the Enneagram scale!
Gina will always embrace you and your pet as you walk in the door. She promises to get you situated in a room as quickly as possible and should there be a wait she will chat with you like you are old friends.
Gina is a west-coaster, now living the farm life with an assortment of furry creatures big and small. She is a hippie at heart and loves Mamma Mia!, James Bond (Sean Connery rules!), and she is a reality TV junkie. She especially loves Survivor and Boston Rob to whom she is sure she would be in an alliance with if she ever played!
This is Gina's 3rd career and coincidentally she shares it with her daughter, Madison
Jesse promises to care for your pet from the moment you walk in until your visit is complete.
Jesse loves all animals- even some bugs. She doesn't discriminate (except for cockroaches!). Jesse likes arts and crafts, specifically DIY projects. She likes to cook, bake bread, and play Solitare on her phone, even though she knows there are better games out there.
Jesse is a self described "deep thinker," and she could come up with a million questions over any topic. She likes music and was a member of a Americana/folk band.
Although Madison hasn't been in the business as long as some, she is so well-versed you wouldn't know it! As your Practice Manager and Lead Aide, she promises to make you feel comfortable and happy during your visit with us. Madison equally loves every dog and cat that comes to the clinic and has a knack for remembering them all by name after their first visit!
Madison is mom to 4 dogs, 6 cats and 2 goats Kobe and Birdie. She is the proud wife to David. Fun fact - they all live in a "tiny house!"
Madison is the biggest Lord of the Rings nerd! She is completely enamored with the fantastical reality of Middle-Earth. She loves super heroes, with Batman being her favorite. Coincidentally her favorite villain is his nemesis, the Joker. If you look closely you will see Madison's cape - always used for good!
