has been with the Courtyard Animal Hospital since 2010.  She has a love for animals that has only grown from working in veterinary hospitals for over 25 years. As the office manager, you will find Nicole at the front desk, where she enjoys greeting the pets that come in and getting to know the clients that care so much for them. She shares her home with an orange tabby cat named Taz and a chihuahua named Odie.  When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with family & friends.


 Sherri SHERRI
has been with working at Courtyard for over 11 years. Coming to us from Virginia, she has over 15 years experience in the medical field. Sherri is mom to 3 cats, 3 birds and 4 rescue dogs. Most days you can find Sherri playing with her dogs at the wellington dog park.


MISTY was just 15 when she was hired for a kennel position at a local veterinary clinic. She knew after just a few months, given her love for animals, that this was the field she wanted to pursue. In 2001, she was hired at Courtyard Animal Hospital and has worked all areas of client & pet care for 11 years. In 2012, Misty left to further her education. Fortunately for us, she missed working with the Courtyard team! Misty shares a home with 2 dogs: Princess and Gimpy and 4 cats: Pita, Fuzz, Fatty & Boots–all of which she adopted as rescues. In her spare time she enjoys caring for her pets, outdoor activities, reading, and spending time with family and friends.

AUDRIE Started in the field at 18 as a kennel assistant and quickly moved to vet tech  and knew that this was her calling! She has had experience working in general practice and emergency medicine, and wants to eventually become a critical care VTS. Recently moved here from the Tampa area and is very excited to work with everyone at Courtyard. She brought with her two cats, Nesto & Apollo and her corgi mix Meena – all adopted from past clinics as abandoned pets. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her 2 year old daughter, playing video games, going to concerts, and playing cello.

ELLA “Fly Me to the Moon” Fitzgerald  & SATCHMO “High Society” Armstrong.  We like to wrestle, chewing on squeaky toys & play tug of war. Our favorite thing to do is to play catch in the pool with our dad <3, Dr. Pinkwasser!  We get to go to work with our dad every day so next time you come to visit, we will play with you!!
