  • Ali

    Howdy y'all! My name is Ali and I have been working here at CAH since 2007! I moved to Texas from California and got here a quick as I could!  I have been having a blast working at CAH! I enjoy all of the perks of working with all of your babies! I have also made friends with many of you as well (bonus)! I have two dogs Austin and Buda, Bichon/Poodle mixes aka fluffy white dogs aka 'Swiffers' ( everything sticks to them when their hair is grown out)!  I love hanging out with my adult children whenever I get the chance! I also love going to concerts and doing anything fun that Texas offers me!  Thank you for allowing me to grow my skills as a tech.

  • 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

    Hello, my name is Olivia and I am a Shih Tzu-holic! I can’t help but LOVE their adorable smushy faces, big round eyes and fluffy bottoms! I just love them all! Fortunately I have the most perfect career for my love of Shih Tzu’s and all the other wonderful dog & cat breeds. I have been at Cornerstone since 2014 and treasure working with the dedicated veterinarians and compassionate staff. My journey in the veterinary field started in 2006 and continues here at Cornerstone. Buda is growing fast but that just means more pets to see and love. I grew up in Driftwood, but now call Kyle my hometown. My amazing husband Chris and I have four, yes that’s right FOUR rescued fur, fur-less, and feathered babies. Jean Luc the rat terrier, Stevie the one eyed Shih tzu, Morticia aka Mimi the Sphynx kitty and Corey a Mexican redhead amazon parrot. Chris and I enjoy snuggling our babies while watching Netflix or Hulu, taking them on walks or for “freebies” time at the park. I love cooking new recipes, doing home improvements and being an essential consultant for Scentsy but being a vet assistant is my true passion. 

  • 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
