Jade Pace, Registered Veterinary Technician, Care Pair with Dr. Barranco, Technician Team Lead

I decided to become a veterinary technician because I’ve always loved animals and I thought it seemed like an enjoyable and fulfilling career. I graduated from Tulsa Community College’s veterinary technician program in 2014. I came to Woodland in May of 2013 for a school internship and was hired shortly after.
I love dogs, specifically dachshunds and senior pets. My hobbies include watching formula one racing and playing video games. I currently live in Tulsa with my boyfriend and our 2 dachshunds. I love working at Woodland West because of the compassion the whole team has, and our fun work environment. I enjoy getting to use the technical skills I learned in school and constantly learning new things on the job.

Kelsey Wagoner, Registered Veterinary Technician, Care Pair with Dr. Monaghan

I started working at Woodland two years ago and have enjoyed every second of it. With all of my amazing coworkers, I’ve been able to grow and learn so much here. Though I tend to be the butt of everyone’s jokes I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I’ve always known I’ve wanted to work with animals. They’re just precious angels and I love that I get to help them every day. I have a soft spot for Australian shepherds and cats due to the fact that I own an Australian shepherd (Kairi) and that my best friend is my cat Gryffin. In my free time, you can find me reading a book, binge-watching my newest obsession, and/or playing video games

 Cynthia Fairchild, Care Pair with Dr. Hollingsworth

Prior to getting involved with animal care, I had worked in retail, restaurants…and even factories, but I never felt like going to work when the alarm went off in the morning. When I was about 20yrs old, I got a job at a no-kill shelter. That’s when I knew this was it, I knew this is what I was supposed to be doing with my life. I started going to school with the intent to make a career out of it, and well here I am, 21 yrs later and still loving it!






Crystal Landess, Care Pair with Dr. Clupper

I started working as a kennel tech at an animal rescue in 2008 as a means to make money while I was in college. But I absolutely fell in love with the work and decided to switch my career path. I graduated from TCC’s Veterinary Technician Program in 2013.

I am a fairly new addition to Woodland West as I started 2 months ago. I have worked for a variety of different hospitals, but I was instantly drawn to Woodland West. Not only do they strive to treat their staff as family, but they treat the clients and their pets as such also. I really enjoy working with Dr. Clupper because she is highly skilled, hardworking, intelligent and always looking to expand her knowledge base.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my two dogs (Alice and Roosevelt) and my cat (Posha). I like to cook, read and I’m a highly competitive board game player (I will beat you at Scrabble, every single time).


Bailey Jones, Care Pair with Dr. Heinz

Bailey has been around Woodland since July of 2008. It has always been her dream to work beside Dr. Heinz. She loves all animals (especially the mutts) and has adopted all of hers from Animal aid of Tulsa over the years. She has two dogs: Ellee a 6 year old Aussie mix and Grady a 3 year old Heinz 57 and two precious cats: Harvey, who is the queen of her world, and the cutest siamese named Jinx. She also has a couple rats that are all named after her favorite Harry Potter characters. Bailey enjoys hanging out with friends, drinking a glass of wine or spending time with her sisters and cute little nephews in her free time.



Shelby Scott, Registered Veterinary Technician, Hospitalization / Treatment Team Leader

Hi! My name is Shelby and I have been with Woodland West for 7 whole years! My job as a treatment technician is to take care of hospitalized pets and make sure they are getting the love and care that they would receive at home. I am extremely blessed to have been awarded Employee of the Year for 2021. My favorite thing about working here is getting to live my dream of working with cute little animals next to all of my best friends. Along with my soon-to-be husband, we have 2 dogs: Macy and Netflix, 2 cats: Taco and Lil Pea, and our turtle tribe: Pete, Patròn Silver, Hank, Hugo, and Barney. In my free time, you can catch me sipping on a margarita and hanging out with family and friends.



Alexis Wallis, Registered Veterinary Technician, Surgical Technician Care Pair with Dr. Yeagley

Leah Page, Registered Veterinary Technician, Care Pair with Dr. Kimberly Clark

I started working at Woodland West in 2019. I was placed here during my practicum for the Vet Tech program and never left. Everyone has become like family to me. I graduated from TCC and then became an RVT in 2020. I acquired 2 art degrees before going into Vet Tech, even though I have known since I was a child that I wanted to work with animals. I love working with all the furbabies that come in. However, boxers will always be my favorite.
My husband’s name is Nick. We have 3 children together plus my bonus son Colby. I have 2 dogs: Apollo (pictured) and Zeus, and a cat named Penelope. As you could imagine my days are pretty busy. When I do have free time I like to do anything crafty or play video games.

Alisa Greiner, Registered Veterinary Technician, Care Pair with Dr. Gonzalez

Hi everyone! My name is Alisa and I’m an RVT. My Woodland journey started as an internship over the summer of 2020. I soon fell in love with the clinic and accepted a job at the end of the internship. I started out as a treatment tech taking care of all the sick fur babies. At the beginning of this year I switched to being part of a care pair and now work with Dr. Gonzalez. I love WWAH because I am ALWAYS learning more every day and I get to meet so many cute pumpkins (aka dogs) and smittens (aka cats). When I’m off the clock you can probably count on me to be hanging out at home with my pumpkin Noodle and smitten Smokey, with friends, or my husband ❤. I also love being outside (except when it’s cold) exploring and hiking. Noodle is our 3yo corgi mix. He is quite shy with new people and crazy about squirrels and the dog park.
Smokey is by far my favorite (don’t tell Noodle 😬) From a tiny kitten to 19 years later, she has been my best friend. I might be biased but she is the absolute best cat in the whole world. 😻 If you ask me about her I will talk your ear off about how great she is. 😁

Cat Stafford, Registered Veterinary Technician, Treatment and Triage…and world’s best technician trainer!

Hi everyone! My name is Cat (not to be confused with the species) and I am an RVT here at Woodland West. I have always had a love for animals since I was a little girl and knew my passion would grow stronger as I got older. Shortly after high school, I started my career in vet med by working at a mixed animal practice in Pryor, Ok. While there, I worked with a variety of animals: Cattle, horses, goats/sheep, pigs, dogs, cats, zoo animals, and the list goes on. In 2019, I began a new chapter of my life by receiving my RVT license and joining the Woodland West Animal Hospital family. At the hospital, you will either find me taking care of your beloved family pets in the back, working alongside a doctor, or giving everyone hugs. Outside of the clinic, you will find me at a beach or on a cruise ship, spending time with my family and friends, training and competing in agility, watching Disney movies, or taking a nap. My wonderful husband Wes and I have an unimaginably sweet and smart dog named Cyprus, a loving but lazy cat named Katie, and the cutest crested gecko you’ll ever see named Kilo. If I have not had the pleasure of meeting you, I hope to meet you soon!
Life is too short, and tomorrow isn’t promised, so live life to the fullest, give love, and be loved. “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That’s why it is called the present.”- Master Oogway, Kung Fu Panda

Andrea Westberry, Veterinary Assistant Level III, Overnight Assistant

Tawnee McAfee, Veterinary Assistant Level II

Hey there! My name is Tawnee, and I’m a veterinary assistant. Most of my time at work is spent taking care of our furry friends and helping wherever I can. I’ve been with Woodland West for a little under a year and love every minute of it! I chose to work for woodland west because working with animals has been a lifelong dream, and the people there are all so nice and welcoming and are always there to offer any amount of knowledge or wisdom, not to mention the passion they have for offering the best care possible for cats and dogs.

Hello everyone, my name is Diana and I’m a veterinarian assistant here at Woodland. I have been with Woodland for about a year and a half, and I absolutely love working here. Working at Woodland has taught me so much, and I love learning how to care for animals, which is something I have been wanting to do since I was a little girl.

Holli Steinsiek, Veterinary Assistant Level III, Overnight Assistant

Karma Davis, Veterinary Assistant Level II

Hey everyone! My name is Karma and I’m 21 years old. I have one older sister and 2 dogs. One is a 12 years old pitbull named Nicki and a 2-year-old husky named Ozzy. I’ve been at Woodland West for a year now and I love meeting every new pet that comes here. When I’m not at work you can find me sleeping and cuddling with my dog. If I’m not sleeping then I’m reading comic books or playing video games. I started working here because I would always pass by the hospital when I was a kid and daydream about working here and helping out sick pets. I always had an obsession with animals and wanted to see new and exotic pets. My pitbull was diagnosed with degenerative joint disease when she was 4 years old, so that’s when I knew that I wanted to learn and help out pets that were just like her. I’m so happy that I can take care and love on everyone’s pets whenever they stay here or visit the hospital. I hope to continue to work with everyone here and hope to help many more pets for as long as I am here.
