My name is Janie I am an upcoming Junior at Vestavia! I am also a basketball cheerleader at school. I enjoy spending time with animals and hoping to go into vet school in the future. When I’m not at work I love to travel with my family and hang out with friends!


Veterinary Assistant

Ashley is currently one of our Veterinary Assistants when she is home from Auburn University where she is attending vet school. Ashley recently finished her first year in veterinary school. You could say that Ashley was born here. She started as a baby in Dr. Dieguez’ office and has been helping at Rocky Ridge Animal Clinic since she was in 8th grade as a receptionist, kennel staff, and now a veterinary assistant.


Kennel Technician

I am Clay and I go to Hoover High School where I’m a member of the marching band. I love music, the outdoors, playing with my dog and believe it or not doing yard work! My favorite part of work is interacting with the dogs. I look forward to going to college in the near future.
