Suzanne Leggett

Suzanne has been a registered veterinary technician for 20 years.  She graduated in 1997 from Central Carolina Community College with an associates degree in Veterinary Medical Technology.  Having moved, with her husband, to Wake county in 1994, she was looking for a new direction to take.  When she discovered she could form a career taking special care of our 4 legged friends, she never looked back.  

She currently has 4 indoor-only kitties.  Soloman , often called “Boo”,the 16-year-old orange tabby is the patriarch of the bunch.  He keeps his two-year siblings in line while loving them at the same time.  Martina, 11, will always find her mommy to relax on.  Sparrow, aka Fuzzy Butt, plays fearlessly with her little sister or paper balls.  Then there’s the ever elusive Candy Cane.  

Suzanne loves Jesus, her husband, family and friends and of course her cats with her very soul.  She enjoys word games, counted cross-stitching, movies, concerts and traveling.


Victoria Bennetts

Victoria, a Minnesota native, decided to leave the IT world behind for veterinary medicine and hasn't looked back. Victoria decided that she wouldn't spend another winter in Minnesota, so she packed up her car and made the trek with her dog, cat, and grandma - for the entertainment, of course.  Victoria's big heart has room for all. Her passions besides caring for patients include exercising, napping on beaches, cooking, teaching people at the gym her sweet moves, travelling to new places, vacuuming (yes, vacuuming IS a hobby) and trying to garden - she isn't exactly good at it but hey, she gives it the old college try!
