“Debbie” was born in Forsyth, GA but moved with her family to Toccoa, GA in 1965, where she attended and graduated from the Stephens County School system.  Wanting to be a veterinarian, but circumstances preventing it, she worked in retail for several years before attending North Georgia Vocational and Technical School (North Georgia Technical College) - obtaining a degree in Practical Nursing. She moved with her family to Gwinnett County in 1998 and held a management position with a major day care company.  She is currently a senior enrolled in her fourth year at Georgia Gwinnett College, working towards her Bachelors Degree.  Mother of two grown children -  Stephen (1986), is a Staff Sergeant in the United States Air Force and recently returned from a 6 month tour of duty in Afghanistan and will soon be in South Korea for a year long tour of duty; and Kimberly (1992), is currently a Junior at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro.  Debbie has been in the veterinary field since 2000 in many varying positions. She lives with her wonderful rescued cats - Priss, Shiloh, Pudd, and Nicky. She especially enjoys spending time with friends and being outdoors when time permits.

Why she does this: “Animals have always been a passion of mine.  I am especially grateful to be allowed to work in a place like The Village Vets with people who share the same passion.”

"Jackie", born in Rochester, NY., has three brothers and one sister - all of whom still live in New York.  She moved to the Atlanta area in 2000.  In her spare time Jackie enjoys making candles and doing needlepoint, as well as taking care of her many pets of eight cats, three dogs, a guinea pig and a hamster.  Jackie said her most rewarding activity has been the six years she devoted to rescuing cats.  In all, she rescued approximately 100 cats (mostly kittens that had to be bottle fed).  Jackie was able to find homes for most of them and the ones she couldn't, she personally adopted.

Why she does this:  "I have always wanted to work with animals.  They have been the best part of my life.  My very first job was at a veterinary hospital at age 16 and I have continued to work with animals ever since".

Renee Freeman tech manager

Renee was born and raised in Georgia and has an older sister that also lives in Atlanta.  Renee has three children, Jasmine (1998), Christian (1997), and Marquavious (1999). She also has one dog named Morgan Freeman.  Renee has always had a compassion for animals and as a child she would cry not understanding why they could not save all the stray animals that seemed to always find their way to her home. In 2001, her godfather introduced her to a friend that owned a small animal practice and she has been in love ever since.  With a passion to learn new things, Renee has plans to further her education in animal science. In her spare time her hobbies include reading and spending time with her family and going to the movies.

Why she does this:  "I'm often asked why I work with animals and the answer is just this simple. I LOVE IT!!! Nothing warms my heart more than to be of service to our four legged friends. Working with The Village Vets has been one of the most rewarding experiences. Not only do we offer quality care to our clients but we also build good relationships with our employees. Great place to work!"
