Soon you will see her in the exam rooms with our doctors taking care of our kitty patients!
At the end of her shift here at A Cat Clinic, she goes home to Binx, her kitty, Cooper the doggie, and Howl, a ball python (he doesn’t do much howling but he sure is cute!)
Patty- Patient Care Coordinator
Patty is our newest team member, having only been here for a couple of months, but she has already shown her love of our patients like she’s been here for years. For 17 years Patty worked for a non-profit organization in baseball and 3 years in hospitality and administration. She recently moved to Jacksonville to be closer to family.
