Our Careteam

Rachel
Office Manager
Rachel grew up in Savannah and the tri-county area, and was always the one bringing home stray animals and begging to keep them. She’s known ever since she was a little girl that she wanted to one day work hands-on with pets! Rachel gets to live her dream every day as one of Westside Animal Hospital’s Veterinary Assistants.

Rachel’s journey in animal care began when she started shadowing a local veterinarian. When that individual opened her own veterinary clinic, Rachel was invited to join as a member of the staff—she hasn’t looked back since! She was happy to become a member of the Westside Animal Hospital team in November of 2016, and continues to help pets and their loving owners as a Veterinary Assistant.

Rachel has a special passion for dentistry work, and never tires of seeing a patient’s mouth go from grimy to sparkling clean. She’s also fond of radiology and the way it gives her an insider’s view into the health of a pet, and she also likes parasitology and the great benefits that parasite control can offer.

When she isn’t helping pets feel better here at the hospital, Rachel can be found spending quality time with friends and family and doting on her own dog, a loving Jack Russell/Beagle mix named Darla.
Donna
Receptionist
Donna joined the veterinary profession for two simple reasons: she’s always loved animals, and she has a knack for providing excellent customer service. That’s why she’s the perfect fit for Westside Animal Hospital’s front-desk team!

Donna is a Savannah native. She earned a Master’s degree in Management and Leadership—working full-time during her studies—and used to work at Virginia College. When the time came to look for another opportunity, she came across an opening here at Westside Animal Hospital. Donna joined the clinic family in June of 2019 and couldn’t be happier with her choice.

Here at the clinic, Donna enjoys the camaraderie and family-like bond she has with her coworkers. No shift is ever boring! She also loves to interact one-on-one with pet owners and meet their adorable companions.
