Meet Our Team


Nurses


The Nurses at Bailey Veterinary Clinic are here to help you and your pet during your visit to the clinic. Some of their duties include assisting the doctor by inviting you and your pet into the exam room, taking general information and getting a current weight and temperature.

They will be the ones assisting the doctors in the hospital by administering the medications, taking radiographs, performing any laboratory work needed and any other care requested by your veterinarian as well as giving general comfort to your pet during their stay with us.

The surgery doctor will have a Nurse assisting them during surgery by administering and monitoring anesthesia during procedures and keeping you informed of your pets surgical recovery.

Our goal is to provide you and your pet with a professional and comfortable visit while you are with us.

BRIANNE 

With her exceptional phlebotomy skills, it has been established that our lead Veterinary Nurse BRIANNE is the i.v. catheter “Queen”. Joining Bailey’s Nursing staff in 2004, she continues to inspire us with her exceptional work ethic, her nurturing nature, and her great sense of humor. In her spare time you can find Brianne at dog shows with her French Bulldogs and Bostons , honing in on her photography skills, and doing a little hunting and fishing. She enjoys spending time with her family which includes her 3 amazing children and, of course, her beloved dogs.

RENEE 

RENEE started as a kennel crew member in 1998 before leaving to go to school to become a Veterinary Nurse and returned to Baileys in 2001. She shares her home with 2 adorable felines, Tinkerbell & Nyx, and two cute Corgis. With her mothering instincts, it makes sense that Renee will often foster abandoned kittens whenever the need arises.
Outside of work, you can often find her at any event pertaining to sports. Her favorite sports include women’s slow pitch softball, basketball, and football.

Renee grew up around animals and always knew that whatever job she had would be centered around them. She “really appreciates” her work family and has plans to stay in the veterinary field indefinitely.

SARA

SARA’s ridiculous love for animals stems from childhood and eventually brought her to Baileys back in 2005. She enjoys all aspects of the clinic but she is especially fond of blood work (lab). With her positive attitude and unceasing smile, it’s not surprising that Sara helps to brighten everyone’s day. She has 3 precious pooches, a trio of spoiled felines, and chickens.
​​​​​​​
Her spare time is spent reading, playing sports, hiking, spending time with her family and a number of varied pursuits which include helping make the Bailey’s Red Cross Blood drive possible and participating in the Relay for Life several times over the years.

FAVORITE SAYING/QUOTE: We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.

KIRSTAN 

KIRSTAN worked as a kennel crew from 1991 until 1996 and then rejoined the clinic in 1998 as a Veterinary Nurse. She can easily work any Nurse position that our veterinary team asks of her. She does it effortlessly and without hesitation or complaint. Her heart is as big as they come and she shows it in the way that she always puts pets first.

Kirstan chose the veterinary field because of her love for animals. Her pets include dogs, cats, turtles, and horses. She also has 2 rowdy, yet wonderful boys, Blake and Daniel.

Outside of the clinic, Kirstan volunteers at Huecrest Elementary School and enjoys scrapbooking, watching her boys play sports and hanging out with her family(pets included).

RONNIE 

Wanting to work with, and help animals, RONNIE knew that the veterinary field was the right choice for her. Joining Bailey's in August of 2005, Ronnie brought with her a ton of energy!

She likes many different areas of the clinic but has a strong passion for pets’ dental health and works hard to keep your pets mouths clean and healthy. It’s not unlikely that you will hear us refer to her as “The Tooth Fairy”.
Her fur kids include 2 dogs, Phaith and Tinkerbell, 2 cats Angel and Tiger and 2 sheep. Ronnie also has 2 fabulous girls who she enjoys spending time with. Camping, yard work and traveling are some of the fun things she likes to do in her free time.

In June of 2022 were so happy to have Jessica join our Bailey family. Let me have her tell you in her own words a few things about herself!

I have found my calling, just needed the perfect home. I was introduced to the veterinary industry as a child, going to work with my grandmother who was a vet tech. I found that I loved it so much that I’ve made a career out of it. 22 years later and I still love it and look forward to helping the community and their fur babies. In my spare time I love hiking, hunting, gardening, cooking, reading and my 2017 883 Sportster. My main interest is in emergency medicine, and I can’t wait to learn more about large animal medicine! I love what I do and am happy to call Bailey’s my home.

When you come in and see Jess at work, she will be all business, with a heart of gold and passion for her job.

Derek came to join the Bailey team in October of 2022, He grew up in southern Florida and graduated high school with his CVA in 2012, and ended up getting his first job in February 2012 at a veterinary clinic that sees exotics, large animal, and small animals. Derek is a big fan of rodents and marsupials, and he also has rehabbed opossums in Florida. His hobbies include video games, anime, kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking, camping and nature trails. When Derek goes on any outdoor adventures he is always sure to take his dog Samantha Mae along for the adventure. She is a 2 yr. old dachshund Catahoula mix. We have been so fortunate to have had Derek apply and accept a position here at Bailey Veterinary Clinic. He is such a fantastic addition to our work family.

We welcomed Holly July of 2022! She has been a wonderful addition to our Bailey family! Holly's passion for animals began when she was a child, raising dogs, cats, rats, rabbits, goats, chickens and more! After high school she went searching for her career, but nothing felt right until she fell into veterinary medicine. When Holly started volunteering at a local animal shelter, she quickly knew this was the right career path for her. She is currently in school to be a Certified Veterinary Technician and very excited to continue this journey with Bailey Veterinary Clinic. Holly recently moved to Douglas County with her partner Logan, her pug Otis, and her cat Stanley. She is really looking forward to exploring the community and continue helping animals here in Douglas County, so if you get a chance to chat with her, let her know your favorite outdoor area!!
