Dr. Jackie Holmes has limited her practice to treating only cats since graduating from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Mississippi State University in 1994. During her senior year of veterinary school, Dr. Holmes focused specifically on courses relevant to feline medicine and surgery, including rotations in cardiology, nephrology and neurology completed at the Colleges of Veterinary Medicine at the Ohio State University and Auburn University. She has also received accolades for her research on the effects of consecutive day propofol anesthesia on feline red blood cells published in Veterinary Surgery in 1995. Dr. Holmes is a member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners, the American Veterinary Medical Association, and the local Jefferson County Veterinary Medical Association. Growing up the youngest of eight children, Dr. Holmes is originally from Pensacola, Florida. Her late father, Dr. JW Andress, practiced veterinary medicine for over forty-five years. She and her husband, Jon, have two daughters. Her hobbies include gardening, stand-up paddle boarding and wake surfing.
Jennifer Holmes has been a patient care nurse for 11 years. She has experience with many types of animals including cats, dogs, exotics, and wildlife. However, her favorite creatures to care for are geriatric kitties! On the weekends she spends time with her own cat, Lola, and enjoys adventurous eating.
Ann Ashton Jones wears many hats at the clinic, including kitty husbandry specialist and afternoon receptionist. She has been a cat-lover for as long as she can remember! In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, bargain-hunting and snuggling with her cats, Layne and Violet.
Chelsea Hudecz is our second kitty husbandry specialist and morning receptionist. If she's not here, she's usually out training puppies. When she has some down time, she loves going out with her husband, reading and cuddling up with her cats, Puffs, KitKat and Cooper.
