Client Care Supervisor

Julie used to work for a school district, and had the summers free once the spring semester ended. One summer, she decided to get a job at a veterinary hospital and fell in love with the profession right away! She’s been a part of the Fairfield Animal Hospital family since 2007.

A Houston native, Julie attended school to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician and then began her career in veterinary medicine immediately afterward. After nearly 15 years of working as a Tech, she decided it was time for a change, but had no desire to leave the pets and clientele that she’d come to know and love. That’s when Julie became a receptionist to best serve the pets and animal owners of the area.

Julie and her husband have been married for over 20 years, and have two sons and a daughter. They currently live with seven dachshunds and a dachshund mix, Brandee, who isn’t told she’s not a full-blooded dachshund so as not to hurt her feelings. When Julie’s daughter whispered to Brandee that she wasn’t a purebred, Brandee’s response was a short, menacing growl!

In her spare time, Julie enjoys being outdoors and spending time in her garden; she has a special fondness for planting orchids.



Client Care Representative

Unlike many of her colleagues, Stephanie didn’t initially set out to work in the veterinary field. An experienced LPN, she worked in human medicine for many years. Shortly after relocating to Cypress, the pandemic struck and Stephanie made the decision to leave nursing. It didn’t take long for her to begin longing for a purpose again. Having lived on a farm prior to her move, she also missed her livestock. She decided to combine her two passions: medicine and animals, and the rest is history!

Stephanie was born in Houston, but has lived all over Texas, as well as Louisiana and Alabama. By the time she graduated high school, she’d attended 13 schools. After graduation, she added Indiana, Illinois, and Arkansas to her resume. Over the years, Stephanie has worked as a nurse, ranch manager, and pig farmer, and owned and operated a crawfish catering company in her down time. She joined the Fairfield Animal Hospital team in October of 2022. Professionally, Stephanie loves learning new things and thoroughly enjoys the puppy love she’s subjected to every day.

A divorced mother of three amazing adult humans, Stephanie feels fortunate to have found a partner to share the second half of her life with, along with a career that leaves her feeling content. Besides spending quality time with her loved ones, Stephanie’s favorite thing to do is find, cook and eat crawfish. As far as pets go, she is currently taking a break and letting her heart heal after saying goodbye to her beloved Great Dane, Bianca, whom she refers to as her “soul mate in animal form.” 



Lead Veterinary Technician

Ever since she can remember, Jennifer has wanted to spend her time helping animals in need. The love that she feels when she helps an animal in need makes it all worth it!

Jennifer was born in Puerto Rico but grew up in Virginia Beach. She started here at Fairfield Animal Hospital in the fall of 2002, only a year after Dr. Hicks opened the clinic. Jennifer confirmed that she’d found her true calling a year later, when she helped perform a C-section on a Golden retriever. As she was handed puppy after puppy to stimulate their breathing, she knew she was doing what she was meant to do.

Outside of her interests in the veterinary world, Jennifer prefers to stay active in the outdoors by mountain biking, camping, and going to the beach. She takes part in a lot of runs, obstacles courses, and mud challenge races—the act of pushing herself physically and getting dirty is quite a thrill!

At home, Jennifer lives with her wonderful son and daughter, as well as a pair of cats named Mork and Mindy. Mork is Mr. Personality and always wants to be right alongside Jennifer, while Mindy prefers to lay low and watch from a distance.



Veterinary Technician

Born and raised in Cypress, Lisi grew up in a household full of animals. She cared for everything from dogs and cats to rabbits, birds, fish, and a turtle! Lisi was destined to help all the animals she possibly could as a member of the veterinary profession—she’s proud to do just that as a part of Fairfield Animal Hospital’s Veterinary Technician team.

Lisi studied animal science at Texas State University and worked as an intern during her summers at various deer-breeding facilities, where she cared for whitetail deer and various exotic animals. After college, she taught high school for two years before deciding to return to what she was truly passionate about: veterinary medicine. Lisi became a Veterinary Assistant here at Fairfield Animal Hospital in the summer of 2019, and trained on-the-job to become a Tech. She’s been tending to pets in that capacity ever since!

Outside of work, Lisi enjoys hiking, hunting, and fishing in the great outdoors, practicing her archery skills, baking, gardening, and dog training. She shares her life with one pet: Honey, a Golden Retriever whose favorite pastimes include bird-watching, swimming, weekend trips to the farm, and long walks to the food bowl.



Veterinary Technician

Natasha has been drawn to animal care her entire life. She’s always been the person to root for the spider in the corner who is just trying to survive. The more time she spent with the earth’s creatures, the more she knew that it was something she wanted to do for the rest of her life. That’s why Natasha dedicated herself to animal care! She helps pets and their owners on a daily basis as a Veterinary Technician.

Natasha was born in Katy, Texas and raised here in Cypress. She launched her journey in pet care by helping to groom the resident Australian Shepherds at a large horse-boarding facility, which led her to a position as a Kennel Assistant for another local hospital in 2001. She worked her way up to the position of Kennel Manager before becoming a Veterinary Technician to care for the area’s pets in an even more hands-on way. Natasha would stay there for the next 17 years!

When the time came for a change, Natasha joined the Fairfield Animal Hospital family in June of 2019. She’s fond of critical care cases and surgical procedures, as the fast-paced nature keeps her on her toes. She also loves to learn new things through everything she does—after many years in the field, Natasha finds that there’s always room for growth.

Natasha’s interests outside of work include singing and karaoke, anime and cosplay, art, and wolves. She founded the Texas Wolfdog Project in May of 2013, which helps to rescue and adopt wolfdogs all across the state! At home, she has three large canine companions of her own: Wilbur Gremmins, who loves to learn new tricks; Baby Blue, the sweetest dog Natasha has ever known; and Dahlia Bean, who is still learning the ropes and plans on being the goofiest of the bunch.



Veterinary Assistant

One of Jessica’s favorite things to do while growing up was play with the family dog—she’s never taken for granted the unconditional love and loyalty that our animal friends give us. She’s always wanted to expand her own knowledge in order to help all of the pets she possibly could! As one of Fairfield Animal Hospital’s Veterinary Assistants, Jessica is able to do just that every day.

Jessica was born in Houston and moved to Cypress with her family at a young age. She’s been here ever since! She first joined the Fairfield Animal Hospital team in 2007, then took time off a few years later to start a family. When Jessica’s kids started school, she decided to return to doing what she loves: helping the area’s pets and animal owners live the best lives possible. She rejoined the clinic family in 2018 and serves as a Veterinary Assistant.

Away from work, Jessica enjoys running 5Ks and 10Ks with her sisters and spending quality time with her family. She and her husband have four daughters, and stay quite busy between the girls’ various games, tournaments, and competitions in soccer and gymnastics. The family also shares their lives with two loveable dogs, Roscoe and Marley.

For Brandi, being able to give something back is a dream come true! She enjoys identifying ways to improve clinic operations to ensure the best possible experience for clients. It’s truly gratifying knowing her efforts go toward optimizing each patient’s health and quality of life.

Brandi attended Texas A&M University in College Station to study animal care. After three years on the pre-veterinary track, she switched her major to animal science. From there, she worked in dog training, horse breeding, and horse training.
