Dr. Jyl’s Mobile Vet Connection Staff

Teryn Teryn - Lead Administrator "From early childhood, I have always had a passion for all kinds of animals. As a young adult I worked as a dog trainer, and then later started managing various veterinary facilities. I’ve had the pleasure of having all kinds of animals such as cats, dogs, reptiles, birds, fish, and frogs. In my spare time I enjoy traveling to the Middle East assisting with vet care for needy pets."

Mike Mike Oliverson, Administrator/ Head Receptionist "My Mom always wanted us to experience the joy of pets growing up (hamsters, turtles, dogs, cats, birds, fish, etc). I settled on dogs as my favorite (Labrador Retriever rescues in particular). My journey into holistic veterinary medicine began 15 years ago when my Lab was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. I saw the astounding effects that natural medicine and nutrition had on him, and I’ve never looked back (and my animals thank me!) After many years in a corporate career that I lacked passion for, I love working where I help improve the lives of companion animals and their guardians every day."

He does have a cardiac catheterization suite for pacemaker therapy and treatment of congenital heart disease. His goal in therapy for your pets is to maintain an exceptional quality of life for his patients with heart disease.

Michelle Michelle, Licensed Veterinary Technician "I've always been connected to animals since I was two. I Decided at seven years old that helping animals was going to be part of my life purpose and have been doing it to this day. Sitting in nature and at the ocean is my bliss and the planet continues to lead me to where I am needed most to help all the animals, Domestic and wildlife. Future vision is to travel the world living my bliss and being a voice for the animals of all kinds."

Nicole Nicole, Registered Veterinary Technician. "I have been working in the veterinary field for 17 years with experience in shelter, emergency and general practice medicine. I have always had a special interest in Integrative Medicine. I am married and have 2 daughters. My animal kids include: a Pomeranian named Neva and 2 rabbits - Fireball and Chunk. In my spare time I volunteer for Girl Scouts and I enjoy reading, camping, knitting, crafting and spending time with my family."

Amanda Amanda, Registered Veterinary Technician. "From a young age I have had a natural connection to animals. It was obvious to everyone but me I should get into the veterinary field. When I finally realized that I should use my abilities to nurture and heal, I started attending Veterinary Technology school. I graduated in December of 2016. After receiving my RVT in April 2017, my intention is to further my education, specializing in pain management. When I am not in school or working at the clinic, I spend time with my English Bulldog "Yogi Berra" and my two cats "Ace" and "Abner". If I am not with them, I am with friends at the movies, or watching baseball. Laughing is my absolute favorite thing to do!"

Kaley Kaley Lucas, Kennel Assistant. "I have been interested in animals for as long as I can remember, but had never really considered working with them professionally until very recently. After working with Dr. Jyl I am thinking about going to school to become a licensed veterinary technician, and/or possibly pursuing another animal related career. I have a huge interest in animal behavior, psychology and training because it gives me a unique opportunity to improve the relationship between animals and their humans. Horses are my current interest. My personal menagerie consists of three cats, two horses and one snake. In my spare time I like to go dancing, horseback riding, studying genetics, reading, spending time with my family and learning new things in general."

Dena Dena Spring, Kennel Assistant "I’ve always shared a special connection with animals. Even at a young age I knew I wanted to be a Veterinarian. I’m currently attending school to become a Registered Veterinary Technician and will graduate in 2018. From there I plan to attend veterinary school to be come a Veterinarian. I’d like to someday open my own practice so I can follow my passion and help animals in need. I have an interest in alternative medicine and animal nutrition and would also like to start a rescue to help animals in shelters who have not been adopted. I currently have a West Highland Terrier named Mac, a Queensland Heeler/Pitbull mix named Lady and a tortoiseshell cat named Tinkerbell. In my spare time I enjoy attending concerts, working on my car or watching tv with my boyfriend."
