Ashley (aka: Ashley Lou) came to us in 2015, while she was completing her college degree in criminal justice. Her love for animals, large and small, is a direct result of her upbringing on her family farm. Her first hand knowledge of farm to table animal food production & processing really impressed us. Her 4-H skills are a great asset to Dr. Justin when they work large animals together. Ashley has so much enthusiasm as she builds her skills that her joy and energy are happily contagious! She is the pet mom of 3 cats, many sheep, several horses, lots of birds, many ranch guard dogs, and she has shared custody of Hank "the baby seal faced dog". Ashley and Luis share Combo, the dog pictured here with Ashley.

We met Lori in 2018 as a new client bringing her puppy in for his vaccines, Lori was impressed with our clean hospital and friendly Greenfield Animal Hospital atmosphere. On that first day Dr.Jody invite Lori to apply for our receptionist position. Her calm, kind, respectful manner, and friendly personality and beautiful smile are perfect for the front desk position. Like all our ladies, Lori loves animals, but cats are her favorite. Lori enjoys greeting our clients and makes it a priority that everyone feels welcome when they walk through our doors. A great team player, Lori pitch hits in the exam rooms when needed. Pictured with Lori is Toto who comes to work with her. She is the wife of Jared and mother of 3 beautiful children.
Jenna is our youngest team member and started with us as a volunteer. Her dog training skills and 4-H experience really impressed us. Jenna now works with us part time in the afternoon, since she is a Yerington High School senior. Jenna's favorite part about working at Greenfield is learning new things and working with our team. She's a "knowledge sponge" aka quick learner. She does everything we ask (a lot of un-glamerous cleaning) with a smile. Jenna wants to become a vet or work in wildlife management. Pictured with Jenna is Bodie the wonder pup.
Val came to us in 2017, all the way from California, where she has over 20 years of experience working within the animal care field. Val is responsible for exam care and stocking the hospital. Calming pets during exams & vaccinations is her gift. Val is our resident "cat whisperer". Val fits in with our team and always finds the positive in any situation. She is a great team player with a great sense of humor. Married in 2018 in a beautiful ceremony in their rose garden at home, Val and Don raise ducks chickens, rabbits, and have numerous cats, plus 2 dogs. Pictured with Val are Moe Moe (recently deceased) and Cinnamon the Pooh. Puppy "Pete", a surprise gift from Don, recently joined the family.
Lois (Auntie Lolo) came to work for Greenfield Animal Hospital in 2005 after years of visiting as a client. Lois always wanted to work with animals. Lois is so good with her own pets, Dr.Jody asked Lois to come to work for the hospital. Lois can pitch hit in any staff position in the hospital, but her special interests are Pet Care & Client Education and staff training. Lois and her hubby have a family of hunting dogs and Harry (aka: the varmint). Pictured with Lois is Harry, who comes to work everyday. Lois says that there's nothing more rewarding than to nurse an animal back to good health. "There will always be the sad times, but the happy times out weigh the sad."
Lupe (aka Lula Belle) came to Greenfield Animal Hospital in 2013 ,with a certification in dog training and a love for pets. Lupe is our "dog whisper". Lupe is passionate about working with animals and is always striving to better herself and her surroundings. Having Lupe on out team elevates us. She has a special interest in Training & Behavior and Diabetic Education and enjoys working at Greenfield Animals Hospital by helping our clients and, most importantly, our furry friends. Lupe says "they are why we do what we do"! She is the pet mom of ShoeString, Rotten, Abby (pictured).
