Office Manager

lynn@oahstaff.com

Lynn has been with Oxford Animal Hospital since August 2003. Her love for animals began at a very early age, when the neighborhood strays just followed her home. Later, she began showing and breeding Saint Bernards and that love lasted for more than 10 years. She still misses the show ring!

Lynn made a dramatic change from her beloved Saint Bernards when she fell in love with a little 7 lb Chihuahua named JeeJee. She loved that little one so much that she added another chihuahua, Mickey, who is a whopping 3.2 lbs! This is quite a difference from her heaviest dog, who was 210 lbs. Her newest addition is a Golden Retriever named Trinity.

She is proud to work at an innovative, high-tech hospital. Most of all, she enjoys being part of the caring, compassionate staff, which is incomparable to any other hospital she’s seen in the 20-plus years she has worked in the animal care field.

Outside of Oxford, Lynn enjoys spending time with her grandchildren, working in her yard, planting flower gardens and is always making new spots for those “have-to-have” flowers.

Brooke loves ``working with animals especially in grooming because `{`she`}` gets such a satisfaction promoting pet health. Finding something that the owner, or even the doctors might not be able to see (like a mass) is in a way, so stress relieving, knowing I might have saved the animals life. I also like making them look pretty. It's super fun and challenging.``
