  • Ali

    Ali came to Cornerstone Animal Hospital in the fall of 2007 after moving here from her home state, California. She loves Texas but does miss her family out west! Ali was new to the field when she started, but has grown to be one of our friendliest and efficient technicians. She will be celebrating 10 years with Cornerstone in 2017. We could not be more grateful and honored that she has spent this time with us! She has two bichon/poodle mixes, Austin and Buda, who will also be turning 10! In her free time, Ali enjoys being a mother to 3 wonderful young adults, eating and cooking vegan food, exploring Texas, sewing, and hanging out with friends.

  • April

    Hi there! My name is April...and I'm a serial Chihuahua lover! I've been a veterinary technician since 2001, and have been with my CAH family since February of 2012. I enjoy working here at CAH, I still learn something new every day and love the small town friendliness I feel from clients and their pets. My husband and I have been together for 22 years, and we have 3 pretty amazing kiddos. I have 2 Chihuahua's - Roman and Tina ( but will eventually convince my husband to let me have more to love one day!). I also have a Sphynx named Loxy. During my free time, I enjoy looking at antique stores and spending time with out family.

  • Olivia

    Olivia has been in the veterinary industry for 8 years. She grew up in the Driftwood area, and now resides in Kyle. She has several pets including an Amazon parrot Corey, who was rescued from a bad environment but now is happy, loud and messy. Olivia can be found cracking us up in the back, or bouncing around the clinic spreading her contagious positive attitude. In her down time, she enjoys movies, humor, concerts, eating and spending time with her sweet bird.

  • Liz

    Hi, I'm Liz! I have been working with animals for the past 11 years. I got my start at a variety of boarding facilities, animal shelters and now have been a Veterinary Assistant here at CAH since the Spring of 2015. I have a Bachelors Degree in Political Science with a Minor in Psychology and am now pursuing a Nursing degree. I was born and raised right here in Buda but I currently reside in North West Austin with my boyfriend Michael and my four fur babies; Mr. Biggs the Dachsund, Baron the Corgi and two cats by the names Wooly and Pico. What I love most about this profession is educating clients about preventative care! In my spare time I enjoy going to the movies and spending time with my loved ones.

  • Fallon

    I’ve been at Cornerstone Animal Hospital since  August of 2015, but have been in the industry since 2008.  I’ve always had a soft spot for animals and and I truly do love what I do. I have 2 dogs.  Oliver, a blue heeler mix, and Lunabell, an Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix. They have a lot of energy, and are very smart!  During my free time I love spending time with my family, playing softball, watching movies, or whatever we can do together. I look forward to meeting your lovely pet!

  • Kirsten

    Hi, my name is Kirsten! I started working in the veterinary field during my last 2 years of college at the University of Texas at Austin, and I’ve been working at Cornerstone since March 2016. I love spending time with my guinea pigs, Kuzco and Sylvester, and my 2 beautiful cats, Beo and Frida. Outside of work, I enjoy reading, eating at restaurants in Austin, and traveling.

  • Kat

    Hi, my name is Kat! I have been working in veterinary medicine for 16 years now and came to CAH in 2017.  I grew up in Dallas Tx but have spent the last 11 years in San Marcos and Austin.  I’ve had furr babies my entire life and I currently enjoy the company of 2 cats, several dogs, and 2 hilarious Guinea pigs.  I also have had a unique chance to travel to South Africa in 2015 to work with the wildlife and study environmental conservation. My favorite part of working at CAH is the quality time I am able to spend with my clients and patients! 

  • Ashley

    Hi, I’m Ashley! I have been at Cornerstone since mid 2017. I grew up right around the corner in Dripping Springs, now living close by in Austin.  I am obsessed with my mini zoo, the household containing my yorkie mix, Smokie, two rabbits Jasper and Marbles, hamster Bingo, and sister’s cat, Giovanni. When I’m not wrestling all of them for meal times and grooming, I am out by the pool or at the dog park. From waitress to wagging tails, I find enjoyment in taking care of others.


  • Janet

    Hello! My Name is Janet and I have been at CAH since the fall of 2017.  I am originally from San Antonio but moved to San Marcos to attend Texas State University for nursing.  Although, I am new to the veterinary industry, I always knew I wanted to work with animals. I have four fur babies named Papi, Chloe, Patches and of course Bailey, my wild child. My favorite part of my job is, watching puppies and kittens grow into wonderful and playful adults. In my down time, you will see me at Camp Gladiator or at the drive-in movie theatre watching the newest super hero movie with my husband George.

  • Houston

    Hello my name is Houston.  I have been in the vet industry for almost 4 years as a client representative and I have been with Cornerstone since the beginning of 2018. When I’m not helping answer phones, I love to spend time with my horses at my parents ranch as much as possible. BUT when I’m not frolicking about in the pastures with animals, I am going to Austin Community College to be a licensed Veterinary Technician. Cant wait to meet all of your fur babies!


  • Danielle

    Welcome! My name is Danielle and I have been with CAH since the fall of 2014. I began here as a receptionist but have progressed to become the Hospital Relations Manager.  I have spent my life surrounded by animals. Growing up I was active in showing cattle, chickens, and lamb in the local 4-H and FFA. I was notorious for finding and bringing home all sorts of animals ( my mom has a few good stories, I am sure!). I am currently owned by a Yorkie/ Dachshund mix named Penny Bell and a wire-haired Dachshund mix named Lincoln. When I'm not taking them on walks I spend time with my Husband Chris and our son Damon. My favorite part of coming to work every day is being a part of the amazing staff here at CAH. I could not ask to work with a more knowledgeable and caring group of veterinary professionals. I hope to see you soon!

  • Chris

    Chris is a co-founder of Cornerstone Animal Hospital along with her husband, Dr. Joe Burke. She manages most of our business accounting and finances, and is always looking for new opportunities to reach out to the community. She and Dr. Burke have three sons, all Aggies, who make their parents very proud. The Burke family has always had a wide variety of pets, ranging from dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, pigs, chickens, and turkeys.
