Meet Our Team
Nicole is our Operations Manager. After starting her career in Veterinary Medicine as a receptionist in 2003, she transitioned into Customer Service Management in 2006, and then into Practice Management in 2013. She has received her Veterinary Practice Management Certification at Penn Foster and has a passion for helping others and ensuring that all pets receive quality medicine at an affordable price. Nicole was born and raised in Florida and moved to Georgia in 2001. She enjoys traveling, being outdoors, and enjoying a nice meal with her husband, children, and grandchildren. Her 2 dogs, Raven and Kaia have been a joy for her to watch their bond and ability to help one another, as Raven is deaf and has learned to rely on her sister for direction and has learned sign language for her commands.
Morgan is the Express Vets Training Coordinator. She grew up locally in Georgia, but was born in Kentucky and decided to return to her roots for her undergraduate degree and received a Bachelor of Science in Animal Sciences from the University of Kentucky. She has worked in the veterinary field as an assistant since 2015 and, after graduating, moved home to Georgia in 2018. Her love and passion for animals started at a young age and continues to grow! In her free time, she enjoys going to the lake, spending time with friends and family, watching movies, and cuddling with her hound-mix Baxter (aka her pride and joy).
Jen is the receptionist here at Express Vets Buford. She is dedicated to keeping clients informed of the best care for their furry friends. While growing up, she loved caring for her two dogs, orphaned kittens and her horse, Pandy. Her compassion and interest led her to a Receptionist and Kennel Attendant position in SW Colorado, where she also joined a small ranch to help care for several alpacas and goats. She’s most content when snuggling her two dogs Roo and Patty, but she also enjoys outdoor adventures, dancing, singing, and sharing new experiences with family.
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.
Katie was born in South Florida but has lived in the North Georgia area since 2000. She began her career in the veterinary field in 2006 and joined the Express Vets family in 2021 as a receptionist and veterinary assistant. Helping care for clients and their pets is her number one passion, but she dabbles in Real Estate in her free time. She enjoys traveling, especially to the beach, exploring local restaurants and breweries, and spending time with her dog, Charlie.
