Ashley Conner

Technician/Business Manager
Ashley came to us in August of 2009. Her beaming smile and her quick wit make her a fun and cheerful addition to our staff. Her three children Kasey, Paisley, and Presley keep her hopping! The past few years she has been working diligently to obtain her undergraduate degree with a Bachelor’s in Animal Science and Industry. Her dream is to make it in to vet school so that she can obtain her DVM to help continue to operate this clinic, as well as to follow her passion and expand her knowledge in to the large animal side. Ashley has always been eager to learn about animals of all kinds, even exotics, and works hard each day to balance all of her duties and be successful. Ashley has taken a step back from the technician side of things as school has become more demanding for her and currently manages the finances of the business.
