Tech Assistant

Bridgett has been a veterinary assistant at Belton Veterinary Center since July 2002. All her special clients and their fur babies make the job worth coming to each day. She currently has three cats at home: See-Chee, her fat, sassy, old girl, Cavalier, the little terrorist, and Fox AKA Bubba, who is an absolute little monster. She is constantly being bossed around by her cats and wouldn’t have it any other way! A fun fact about Bridgett is that she loves unicorns and has collected them since she was young.

She enjoys setting up her fairy garden in the spring and summer and gets excited when the stores bring out new fairy stuff for the season! While she likes plants and flowers, she is not as good with green things as she is with furry things.

Kennel Tech

Emaryn is one of the main kennel staff at Belton, although you might catch her in an exam room or staffing the lobbies.

Growing up, her family always had dogs- from their regal Akita mix to her special Beagle buddy, to the ones that would need a DNA test to classify. All of them were much-beloved family members that had special accommodations, such as cooling pads, traction mats for outdoor steps in the winter, and the infamous trash can modification to foil even the most determined canine.

Currently, Emaryn lives with her husband and two spoiled cats that they acquired from the clinic. One is a chatty Calico named Speed Bump- who was hit by a truck as a kitten (she is not particularly smart). Ullr is a Siamese Tabby mix who can be bribed into performing tricks but is known to fall off platforms and land on his head. With luck, both cats will learn to live with the future inevitable dogs.
