She knew she always wanted a career working with animals, but wasn't sure what that would be. After high school Katie studied biology at Ga Gwinnett College. After working with primates for 2 years as a keeper, she knew what her calling was, and returned to school, receiving her RVT (registered veterinary technician) credentials from Athens Technical College.  When she's not here working, she enjoys crafting, reading, and spending time with her husband Cody, and their crazy cat Walnut!

  • Reagan Reese
    Technician Assistant

    Beginning my veterinary science career working alongside the Apalachee team is an amazing experience.  Currently I have two rescue dogs, Wilbur & Mela.  In my free time I enjoy camping, hiking, swimming and volunteering for the Georgia SPCA.  I hope to continue with the career I love in animal science

  • Jenny Hernandez
    Technician Assistant

    As a child, I always knew I wanted to work with animals. I started in the veterinary field in August of 2014. In December of 2015, I started working here at ARAH as a Customer Service Representative but wanted to be able to interact with the animals more so I moved to the back as a Kennel Care Counselor. After some time working in the kennel, I developed a strong interest in learning the in's and out's of the medical side of things, so I transitioned to a Technician Assistant. I hope to further my career in becoming a Registered Veterinary Technician. I truly love what I do and enjoy working with such an amazing, exceptional, and compassionate team. In my free time, I enjoy spending quality time with my fiancé, friends, family, & of course my beloved animals.

  • Mickey Nuzzo
    Customer Service Representative
    After 30 plus years as a veterinary receptionist it still surprises me how much I love what I do. I started as a part time receptionist in 1985 at a large animal hospital in New Jersey. After 18 years we decided to move to Florida where I continued in this field for another 10 years. We moved to Georgia in 2014 to be near family and that is what brought me to ARAH.  I am proud to be a part of this exceptional animal hospital. I look forward to many more years working at a job I love coming to everyday.

  • Britt Coon

    Britt has lived in Georgia her whole life, and has been in the veterinary field for the past 10 years. She lives with her husband and daughter, along with their 2 German Shepards, Tough Guy & Tank, and a bunny named Sweetie. 'I am passionate about animals, and I love my job because I get to help people and their pets.' Britt joined our team in October of 2017.

  • Karen Coriell
    Customer Service Representative

    My husband and I relocated to Georgia, from New Jersey, in 2008. I have had a love of all animals my whole life. When I was 8 years old my family adopted our first Newfoundland, Liz, who was my 'lifesaver' and I have been in love with the breed ever since. I have owned many Newfies over the years, and are currently 'owned' by 4 Newfie rescues; Norman, Salem, Ruth & Ethel. After 18 years working on the human medicine side, I came to the veterinary side in February of 2018 and I love my job! I enjoy helping others and providing support when their pets are in need. My co-workers, doctors and the entire team at Apalachee River Animal Hospital are the best, they truly care. In our spare time my husband and I enjoy antiquing, and I continue my Newfie Rescue work, especially at the Newfoundland National every year.

  • Brady Jackson
    Kennel Care Counselor

    I’ve lived in Georgia my whole life, and I’ve always loved every type of animal, big and small. I’m currently in my senior year of my bachelor’s degree in Biology at the University of North Georgia, and I hope to start a veterinary career of my own after I graduate. Growing up my house was a zoo, with dogs, cats, turtles, fish, a sugar glider, and an adopted pet bat, all sharing a home with me at some point. My favorite hobbies include watching football (Go Dawgs and Rise Up!) and hanging with Mose, my best buddy and crazy kitten.
