Stacy Guckert

Stacy started working with us as a Veterinary Assistant in 2006 and worked her way up to Receptionist.  She has also earned the distinguished title of "Dog Whisperer" for her way of calming our aggitated pets down.  Stacy adopted a Chihuahua named Misty that would have been euthanized with her many medical conditions, as she is blind and diabetic, but Stacy fell in love with that sweet face and was willing to take the challenge on and Misty gives her kisses everyday to thank her.

Emily started working for Bostic Veterinary Hospital in 2016 as intern to become a veterinarian technician. She fell in love with the employees and the challenging but rewarding work at Bostic, so she decided to join our team. Emily has one golden retriever named Ellie, who is energetic and loves to play soccer any chance she gets. When Emily is not at work, she enjoys kayaking, sipping on a good cup of coffee, and traveling.

Megan Andros

Megan started with us in 2015 after moving to Virginia Beach from Durham, NC.  She began working with animals at a kennel at the age of 14.  She took a brief break from animals and became a Nationally Registered Pharmacy Technician, but she felt like something was missing so she chose to return to working with animals, where her true passion lies.  Megan married her high school sweetheart. Jacob, in 2012 and they have three animals together: a pomeranian, Maverick, a GSD, Buckeye, and a cat, Panama.  Megan's pets are her babies.  She loves having puppies come into the clinic and will be the first one to snuggle the little ones.  Megan enjoys going to the beach, reading, swimming and crafts.

Tammy also has a dog named Jordan who is 14 years old wearing what the Learning Channel calls a bionic leg.  This brace has been a godsend for Jordan.

Dawn Rhodes

Dawn  Rhodes

We found Dawn through a temp agency in 2012 and as you can see she worked out so well we hired her. Dawn served in the military for 20 years so she really does enjoy speaking with our military clients.  Dawn is married to Lindsey, and they share their home with 2 Jack Russell Terriers.  One of their Jack Russells is named Jack, guess they didn't want to think too hard about the name, followed them home and that's how he came to live with them.  Then they felt he needed a buddy so they adopted Rider and now they have a happy family.

Client Testimonials

"From the time the Bostic Veterinary Hospital opened, we have been devoted clients and have taken all of our dogs to be treated by their excellent doctors and staff. They have always been so aware of our needs regarding love for our dogs and dedication to their care. We feel so fortunate to have found the VERY BEST for our little angels. "
