Bianca joined us in 2020, and brought experience as both a Veterinary Technician and Veterinary Receptionist. As a result of her outgoing personality and infectious laugh, it didn't take long for her to become RAH's Lead Receptionist. Bianca loves exotic pets & has a tortoise named Jumba. She also has Polly, a chihuahua mix, and Lilo, a little terrier mix that survived Parvovirus as a puppy. Bianca enjoys taking her pups on walks & hanging out with them in the yard while she gardens. Interesting fact: Bianca has a BFA in Dance & Choreography from UNT!
If you've been to RAH or the Royal Pet Resort, there is a very good chance you've met Bryan! He has been serving our clients since August 2014, when he and his partner Thomas packed up the car and moved from Hartsville, TN to Texas. We feel so blessed that they did! Bryan loves our clients and working with the public, and you'll always know he is around because laughter fills the air and his southern drawl and 'hill folk' sayings can't be missed! At the moment Bryan's house contains 2 Standard Poodles, 1 Goldendoodle, 2 Dachshunds, 2 Abyssinian cats and a Yellow Nape Amazon Parrot. Brian & Thomas are also proud foster parents to 13 year old Jose.
It was a wonderful day in September, 2020 when Abby joined RAH! If you have met Abby you know how special she is - no matter how stressful the day, she displays empathy, kindness, and grace during all interactions with our clients and their pets. Abby is pictured here with her senior Catahoula mix, Geordi, her constant companion, and her energetic 2 year old Dachshund, Captain 'JT' Kirk, who, according to Abby, is the very best at giving kisses! Fun facts about Abby (besides being a 'treky'); she was homeschooled through 12th grade, would like to own a bakery/coffee or tea shop or be a costume designer, and on top of it all she writes books!
Gabby has been part of the RAH family since July of 2021, and she came to us with almost 7 years of experience as a veterinary receptionist. Gabby and her husband have two young sons, and a four-legged family member, Emma, who is an adorable and energetic 2 year old Corgi. Clearly free time isn't something she has a lot of at the moment, but when she can find the time she likes to read and binge watch her favorite shows or movies. According to Gabby she can recite every line of her favorite movie, White Chicks, a cult classic from 2004!
Krista started with RAH in October of 2021 during National Veterinary Technician Week. She came to us looking for a change after many years as the Lead Receptionist at another veterinary hospital. Krista loves animals and has been working in the veterinary field since 1996. She has two beautiful daughters, and two grandchildren who get a ton of love! Krista enjoys spending time with her family, boyfriend, and dogs out on their land, and she loves to tend to her plants at home. We are so grateful she chose to join us!
Liz joined RAH in March of 2021. Born in Russia, she has lived & travelled all over the world...even white water rafting on the Nile! At work, Liz loves educating our clients and being able to help them get the answers they need. She and her husband share their home with 4 pups - Phantom, Slick, Kaos, and Charisma (pictured here)! They are an energetic bunch, especially Kaos, a 2 year old German Shepherd with a unique log obsession (yes, a real log he carries around the back yard with him!). If Liz didn't work with animals, she would like to be a photographer or a party planner - we definitely need to take advantage of those talents!
Marnie joined our team in July 2023 after a long career as a Senior Zoo Keeper at the Dallas Zoo, where she was responsible for the husbandry and welfare of over 100+ exotic birds. Originally from New Jersey, Marnie received her degree in zoology from Maryland University. Currently Marnie's pets include Ponce (pictured here), and two guinea pigs named Bitz and Pancetta. While Ponce is an absolute snuggle bug and lover, the pigs just love lettuce (and have no use for her!). Marnie is enjoying the change of pace from life at the zoo; she likes interacting with all of the pets, and the people that consider them family, that come through our doors every day.
Mackenzie - Picture Coming Soon!
Mackenzie joined RAH in early Summer 2023, and it has been a delight having her on our customer service team! An Arlington native, she would like the opportunity to spread her wings and travel some day. Coraline, Mackenzie's four-legged baby, is a 4 year old bully who loves to cuddle. Apparently Coraline also has a habit of eating ANYTHING that isn't tied down - toys, food, paper, bugs...you name it, she will eat it! In her free time Mackenzie enjoys spending time with her friends and playing horror video games. Her favorite part of working at RAH is having the opportunity to interact with so many different pets and their people.
