He is a jack of all trades and helps with everything from hospital construction, client services, and keeping hospital morale high. Kevin ensures that every client and patient have a positive experience starting from appointment booking to check-out. His fur family consists of 2 Yorkshire terriers, an Airedale terrier named Fergie, and a Siamese cat named Thomas. In his spare time he enjoys fishing, working on his modified mini race car, cooking. If you ever have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to call and ask for Kevin!

 

Hospital Nurses

Katie always had a passion for pets and joined the Heritage Oaks family in 2019. She quickly became an integral member of our team who has excelled as a veterinary technician. Katie has a strong drive to learn new things and is exceptionally passionate about surgical assisting and anesthesia. 
Katie is a local; born and raised in Citrus County, where she participated in 4H in middle school and FFA through high school. Katie and her fiancé Brandon share their home with their two rescue dogs Molly and Trixie. When not at work, Katie enjoys four wheeling, mud bogging, and going to the beach. 
 

Amber joined Heritage Oaks Veterinary Hospital in March of 2021 and is a licensed veterinary technician. She has a special interest in oncology and dentistry, but is always looking to learn something new! 
She is originally from Connecticut and her family includes her fiancé Paul, four English Springer Spaniels (Buckshot, Kimber, Gauge, and Reload), and a tabby named Arnie. She spends her days off enjoying Florida’s outdoors and checking out local restaurants. 

 

Kelsey has long since left Heritage Oaks to work with family in Colorado, but as a snowbird, you'll often see her popping in and out of the hospital. She will still lend a helping hand when asked nicely, as her heart is always with pets and patient care. Kelsey is known for her sense of humor and empathetic nature with our clients. When she's down in the cooler months, you can find her most weekends out on the salt water fishing. Kelsey's fur babies include a blue-tick hound named Slim and a tuxedo cat named Willy.
