Meet Our Team
Melissa has lived in Georgia her whole life, right here in Gwinnett County. She started working in the veterinary field at a young age progressing to her current position of Veterinary Assistant. She is truly passionate about helping animals & watching them grow and learn new things. Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her husband, Chris, their two daughters, and their insanely crazy fur bunch of 3 Maxel, Meeko & Maze.
Nikki, one of the Receptionists at our Buford location, is a devoted animal advocate and is dedicated to delivering an excellent client and companion animal experience. Nikki grew up an Air Force brat and has lived in several different countries. It makes the question of “where are you from” a bit difficult to answer. She moved here with her three kiddos who constantly keep her on her toes. Nikki loves all things geeky and strange and recently learned to crochet as a new hobby during the pandemic. She can often be found multitasking while catching up on Marvel Universe movies/shows, crocheting a new project, and keeping an eye on the kids all while working on the first draft of her novel in her head. Chaos is often embraced in her household.
Julia wears a few hats as she is one of the Express Vet’s Assistants and Receptionist. Julia has loved animal’s her entire life and always wanted a future where animals would be prevalent. She has been in the veterinary field since 2021 and loves being a part of it. She will continue growing her knowledge and experience here with us at Express Vets Buford! Julia moved from Nashville with her 9-year-old poodle, Lola, and partner. And they recently added a kitten to their mix, Dunkin. Julia is excited about continuing her life and career here in Georgia with us!
