Cassandra Lessner: Receptionist

My name is Cassandra and I’m a Receptionist. I’ve only been in the vet field a few months, but I’m loving the experience! My pet is Tangelo, aka “Tangy” and he’s your typical full-of-sass orange tabby, but he’s the best cuddler when he’s feeling affectionate!

Brady Petrilli: Technician

Hello! I’m Brady, and I’ve been working directly with animals for a little over 10 years, however, specifically in the vet field for about 5 years now. I absolutely love the fast-paced environment of being a Technician and the variety of tasks that must be performed with each patient. I genuinely enjoy making a positive difference in the lives of not only the animals but their owners as well. I am the proud owner of 4 cats and 1 rambunctious Miniature American Eskimo pup named Vans.

Hi, my name is Erin. I have been with Companion Care since March of 2021, but in the Veterinary field since 2014. I have always had a passion for animals, and working here gives me the opportunity to help not only our pets but their parents as well. I love being able to work with amazing doctors who help me grow and learn along the way. I adopted my dog SquiggaLee in 2015 after he was found living on a golf course for a couple of weeks. He’s the best boy and loves to meet new people.

Cristina Harry: Vet Assistant
My name is Cristina Harry! I’m a third-year pre-vet zoology student at UCF, hoping to become a Zoologist by the end of my college career. I love working at Companion Care because I learn so much and am surrounded by such supportive people. In my hands, I have Poptart, an office cat who we rescued quite a while ago. His favorite activities include eating too many treats, greeting every animal that walks through the door, and napping on any unconventional surface.
