Meet the Staff

Peggy ~ F/T Lead Receptionist (Off on Wednesdays)

Peggy joined the staff of Leland Veterinary Clinic in February 2008, after having been a client for many years. She is a Georgia native and has lived in Mableton since 1992. Peggy’s extensive office experience is a valuable asset to Leland. Her skills encompass excellent organizational and communication skills. Peggy enjoys learning new things about cats and dogs every day by assisting Leland’s clients. She also enjoys gardening and spending time with her rescues which include her five cats (Zelda, Oliver, Benny, Houdini, and Merlin) and two dogs (Josie and Pearl). Leland, and many of our clients, would be lost without Peggy. Leland is proud of Peggy and appreciates her loyalties and trustworthiness.

Bri ~ F/T Bilingual Receptionist (Tuesdays – Fridays)

Bri joined our team in December of 2017. She has become an amazing addition and asset to Leland, and she has a great personality and sense of humor. We are very fortunate to have Bri for many reasons. Firstly, she helps to bridge relationships with our Hispanic community by assisting in providing or relaying useful education and information, quality care, and sincere empathy to our clients and their animals. Secondly, Bri has a loving heart as a proud parent of a baby boy, past teacher, and as an animal owner. Bri’s interests include many different “avenues” like going to church, trying new foods, enjoying bubble tea and coffee, music, and spending time with her family. We should also mention, that she loves the character “Snoopy” (Of course, her favorite character would be a dog!). Leland, and our clients, look forward to a long relationship with Bri.

Alice ~ F/T Certified Veterinary Technician (Off on Mondays)

Alice began working with Leland Veterinary Clinic in 1997. She graduated from Jacksonville State University with a 4-year degree in Computer Information Systems. She spent fifteen years in the Army. In 2008, Alice earned her license as a Certified Veterinary Technician. Alice is an incredible asset to Leland and its clients. Her knowledge and capabilities are extensive; she is a huge component to the success of our clinic and is an invaluable asset to our doctors. Alice has several cats (which includes one special cat that only has three legs, one cat named Millie – aka “The Church Cat”, and one cat named Benjamin – aka “The Dumpster Cat”). Alice thoroughly enjoys going to church, spending time working in her yard, and putting her skills to work towards woodworking and painting ceramics. She also loves playing computer games. Alice has always been interested in caring for animals and is extremely devoted to their welfare. We cannot imagine Leland without Alice.

Lisa ~ F/T Veterinary Assistant (Off on Thursdays)
Lisa joined the Leland Veterinary Clinic family in September 2007. She brings with her business experience and most importantly a love of animals. Lisa completed a course in Animal Care and Kennel Management from Professional Career Development Institute, and is our coordinator in prescription foods required for different ailments from which our patients suffer. Lisa is also a multi-talented assistant to all staff positions within the clinic and she has an abundant amount of knowledge in many areas. In Lisa’s spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, her two cats (Winston and Junibe), doing puzzle books, and relaxing with scented candles. Leland looks forward too many more happy years working with such a talented person as Lisa – who always offers exceptional care and love for our patients and their families.

Danielle ~ F/T Veterinary Assistant (Off on Wed. & Thurs. afternoons)

Danielle joined the Leland team in September of 2014 but has been working with animals in one capacity or another since 2010. Throughout the years, Danielle has had more and more of a calling to put her sincere love and appreciation for animals to use by investing in learning more about animal/pet care and their all-around health. Of course, Danielle is the type of person that has many passions including her beautiful family (a husband of many years, an older daughter, two young boys, a new baby boy, two dogs, one cat, and a partridge and a pear tree – j/k), learning about and cooking food, and cycling. Danielle even cycles to work sometimes which is at least 13 miles one-way (that will get you ready for a good day at Leland!). Danielle has a degree from Johnson and Wales University and is currently pursuing other “avenues” of obtaining knowledge within the scopes of her passions. Danielle is a valuable addition to our team and is great with our clients and patients. We hope to never lose her.

Genesis ~ F/T Bilingual Veterinary Assistant (Off on Wednesdays)

Genesis, who came to us in late 2018, is one of our youngest members to join our team and has quickly become an important element to the functionality of Leland. Genesis is very smart, a quick learner, and has a very big and kind heart. She has always had a passion for helping others; so, it only makes sense, that she would wanIMG_20190124_103113t to help the four-legged children of the world as well. Genesis offers great support to our Hispanic clients by being able to communicate and relay important and educational information to them in the exam rooms or while assisting doctors or other co-workers. Genesis believes family is extremely important, and she has two close sisters that she enjoys doing everything with. Some of Genesis’s favorite things to do when she is not working, is sleeping without an alarm clock (don’t we all), shopping, and taking pictures of beautiful and interesting things that she can learn from. Genesis is growing fast in her “pet care” knowledge, and we all hope she continues to flourish along with Leland as the years go by.

Akita ~ P/T Veterinary Assistant (Off on Mondays and Tues./Fri. afternoons)

Akita has recently joined our family and has already made a great impression on her fellow co-workers and clients; she is fun to work with and has a great sense of humor. Akita has always had a love for animals and their well-being. Just recently, she has taken her enthusiasm for the care of animals a step further by going to school at Penn Foster to become a Veterinary Technician. At such a young age, she has become a great example to others by proving that one can transform a passion into a career path (we are all very proud of her)! Akita has several brothers and sisters and believes family is very important through all stages of life. She also loves to socialize with her friends, go shopping, and try new things. Akita is also a Georgia Peach and loves Southern/Soul food. Actually, she just loves food period, lol! Here at Leland, we hope to become more familiarized with Akita and be able to help her with her chosen path of obtaining more knowledge of pets and their healthcare.
