  • 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 our 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. 

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Luna

    Hello! My name is Luna and I have been in the Veterinary Industry since January of 2013 and  working at Cornerstone since December of 2017. I'm fascinated with my current position as a veterinary assistant. I am proud to say I partake in making a tremendous difference in the life of our pets. I am a mother of four irresistible canines. They are my every day exuberance. If time allows, I am out exploring the outdoors, learning to cook, doing arts, DIY projects, and many other nerdy hobbies. I am fond of family time as well. I wish here at Cornerstone, we meet and exceed your expectations and look forward to meeting you soon!

  • Cailee

    Hi, I’m Cailee! I grew up in Canadian, Texas all the way up in the Panhandle. I have been working with animals for about 5 years. I first started volunteering at our local veterinary clinic and was eventually hired on part time and would work after school as well, helping out with boarding on the weekends. I have been working here at Cornerstone Animal Hospital since June of 2019 and absolutely loving it. I am also currently a full time student at Texas State University and am studying in the pre-veterinary program. I enjoy spending my free time out shopping with friends or going home to visit my family. I hope to see you and your lovely pet soon!

  • Daniel

    Howdy I'm Daniel... I've been around animals my entire life, and I couldn't imagine it any other way. If it has fur, feathers, scales, digs, swims, flies, or crawls; I'm all about it. I got started in the veterinary field back in 2016, and I've enjoyed meeting and helping as many animals as I can ever since. When I'm not playing with my many pets/plants, or hanging out with wildlife I'm usually working on a project building something. I enjoy using my imagination to create. As a result I'm a huge geek for creatures, and anything fantasy/anime. I'm also big on family so when I'm not doing things with them, I'm probably out somewhere looking under a rock for something I haven't seen before. I'm addicted to animals, and I can't wait to meet your four legged partner in crime!


  • Amanda

    I'm from  Austin, Texas. Born and raised! I'm a huge pizza lover, and I'm here to tell you pineapple does not belong on pizza. I enjoy going on walks on South Congress with my handsome German Shepard, along with painting on the weekends. Dream places to visit are Australia, and Bora Bora. Volunteering at Austin Animal Center for 3 years made my love for animals grow, and is the reason  I chose the vet field. Super happy to join this team, hope to see you and your fur babies soon!

  • Nedra

    Hi there! My name is Nedra, I am a certified veterinary assistant with eight years of experience in the veterinary industry.  I started to develop my passion for animals while working for a non-profit organization in Houston back in 2012. After spending a few years in the shelter environment I found my true passion for veterinary medicine while working as a technician in various vet clinics. Since I am not a current pet owner my favorite part about working in a clinic is being able to give extra TLC to every fur baby I meet. I also enjoy baking, writing, spending time with my family, and traveling during my free time. I look forward to sharing a smile with you and showering your fur babies with pets and yummy treats soon!

  • Melinda

    Hey everyone, my name is Melinda! I am originally from San Antonio, TX. I am a graduate from Tarleton State University located in Stephenville TX, where i graduated with a bachelors degree in bio-medical sciences with an emphasis in pre-veterinarian studies. Future plans are to continue to vet school and become a veterinarian myself. I am having a blast living my life working with animals everyday and gaining so much knowledge working in a hospital.  Having one pet in the house, who we call 'old man',  makes me want even more fur babies! I look forward to meeting all your pets in the hospital. I hope to see yall soon! Come say hi!  


  • 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.
