Harris Boulevard Veterinary Clinic's Dedicated Team
Our team of caring professionals is devoted to you and your pets!
Jennifer Llamas — Hospital Manager
Jen joined the Harris Boulevard Veterinary Clinic team in May 2013. Growing up in Syracuse, New York, she had a love for all animals, but had a special affinity for horses. She started riding at age 6 and worked with a large animal veterinarian while in high school.
Jen attended LeMoyne College for undergraduate degrees in Business and Biology, and then Syracuse University for her MBA degree. She was a small business owner for 6 years prior to moving to North Carolina in January of 2012.
In her spare time, Jen enjoys boating and jet skiing on Lake Norman, but her biggest passion is bulldogs. She is very active with the group Bullies 2 the Rescue and has three bulldogs of her own — Vinnie, George and Sausage. Jen usually has a foster added to her brood before helping them find their forever homes. She also loves spending time with her husband Jessie and her extended family, who have now relocated to North Carolina with her!
Jennifer Warren — Veterinary Technician
Jennifer joined our team in August of 2007 after spending four years working in a veterinary emergency hospital in Northern Virginia. She has been in the Veterinary field for many years and has worked with animals since she was a little girl to pursue her lifetime career.
Jennifer has two dogs, a Cocker Spaniel/Pomeranian mix named Hailey and a Boxer mix named Shorty (aka Yoda), as well as two handsome boys named Connor and Michael. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband Brian and her boys, crafting, and learning new cooking skills.
Carly Gentle — Veterinary Technician
Carly joined our team in April of 2008 as a kennel technician, and then moved up to a veterinarian technician in October of 2008. Carly has three years of college courses in animal sciences and behavior. She has always had a passion and love for animals, telling her mother at the age of 2 that she was going to be an animal doctor when she grew up.
Carly was raised on a farm with horses, goats, chickens, rabbits, dogs and cats and has always wanted to work with horses, hoping that one day she could partake in training and rehabilitation of racing horses. She currently lives with her fiancé TJ; three dogs – Gunner, Ilu, and Suki; and cat Tiffin. She enjoys spending time with her four fur kids and family. She is also an avid fisherman and loves the outdoors.
Tiffany McBride — Veterinary Technician
Tiffany joined our team in July of 2010. From the beginning, her love for animals was evident — she was always begging to "keep" any stray animals at the hospital until she could find them a happy home. This is her fist job in the veterinary field, but she has always had a house full of animals to care for and love.
Tiffany has a purrfect cat named Sonic that she rescued as a stray when he was 9 weeks old and a terrier named Rigby that was rescued from the shelter at 6 months old. In her free time, Tiffany enjoys hiking and painting.
Olivia Kennedy — Veterinary Technician
Olivia grew up in a small town outside Charlotte called Lucia. While attending University of North Carolina at Charlotte, she worked at a doggy day care which lead to her adopting her first dog, an English Bulldog named Butterz. After helping Butterz overcome some major health issues, Olivia decided to pursue a career as a veterinary technician.
Outside of work, Olivia enjoys activities in the water, live music, and anything where Butterz can join her. She also volunteers with Wreaths Across America and Bullies 2 the Rescue.
Kyle Caldwell — Veterinary Technician Assistant
Kyle joined our team in April of 2013. He is a student at Clemson University studying Animal and Veterinary Science. Upon graduation, he plans to attend veterinary school.
Kyle has always had a love for animals and enjoys spending time with his Golden Retriever, Penny, and his cat, Rolo. He also enjoys hiking, rock climbing, swimming and participating in school spirit activities. He has even gotten the chance to run a Clemson letter flag onto the field before a football game!
Bobby Lance — Client Care Specialist
Bobby joined our team in September of 2013 and has been in the veterinary medicine field working as a technician and/or receptionist since 1996. He has two dogs — Stelios, a doberman, and Kordellia, a pit bull — and a tuxedo kitty named Raspucia.
In his spare time, Bobby enjoys baking (and the rest of the staff enjoys this too!) and decorating. He is our chief decorator at the hospital and keeps our office current with each season and holiday.
Michelle Sant — Client Care Specialist
Michelle joined our team in April 2014. She grew up in Louisiana with a house full of animals and has always been an animal lover, but has a special affinity for cats. After many years in retail and optical management, she decided to follow her heart into the world of animal care. Before Michelle moved to Charlotte in January 2014 from Aiken, South Carolina, she worked as a kennel technician in another veterinary hospital. She now is one of the smiling faces you will see at our front desk.
Michelle has four "fur babies" — Dixie, a Maltese; Bosco, a Puggle; and two cats, Charlie and Bruiser (her one-eyed wonder). In her free time, she enjoys reading and relaxing at home, and vacationing in the New England area.
