Myia Griffith, Area Coordinator
Myia began her career in Veterinary Medicine as a kennel technician when she was 15. She quickly discovered her passion for veterinary care and animal welfare and has been in the industry ever since. She has years of experience working in numerous positions in day practice as well as emergency medicine and animal toxicology. Myia has also been very involved in helping Georgia’s homeless pets. Prior to joining Express Vets, she helped manage a non-profit dog shelter and fostered over 50 animals. Her favorite fosters are neonatal orphans and fearful dogs who need to learn how to be loved by humans again. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends and going on adventures with her three dogs- Chai the Catahoula, Nigel the Frenchie, and Bella the Chowsky Sheptriever.
Nina Drumm, Controller
While most people find accounting and human resources to be a bit dry and boring. Nina knew from an early age there was nothing more she wanted to do, thus it became the focus of her education and long-standing career. She was born in Long Island, NY, raised in Orlando, FL, and relocated to Canton, GA in 2018 with her 2 children (Matthew and Taylor). She and her husband live on a small farm with 3 dogs (2 Australian Shepherds – Gunner and Layla and 1 mini-Dachshund – Roxy), 2 goats – Snickers and Oreo, 5 chickens, and 3 ducks. In her time away from work, Nina’s hobbies are fitness, spending time with friends, and traveling to new places around the world.
Brandon Ashley, IT Coordinator
Brandon is our IT Coordinator. He has loved technology since he can remember, but he also loved animals, and luckily, he found Express Vets. He started his career three years ago as a kennel technician in 2018. After pursuing many sides of the field, from training to emergency care, Brandon happily settled with Express Vets in 2021 as a receptionist. Brandon was born in Vermont and raised in Georgia since he was 3. In his spare time, he and his fiancé love to spend time working, training, and lying around with his 1yr old Hound Mix, Capernicus.
