Meet the friendly staff at The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt!

Lead Receptionist
When she moved from Rockford, Illinois to Greensboro in 2002, Gina began looking for work in her previous field, mental health. In her spare time, she started volunteering at the Guilford County Animal Shelter. Gina ended up enjoying it so much that she decided to look for a career in the veterinary field instead!

Gina’s veterinary career began when she started working as a receptionist in a one-doctor practice. In the fall of 2007, she arrived here at The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt. Providing comfort and reassurance to clients is her favorite part of the job. Gina and her husband Michael share their home with a 15-year-old German shepherd mix named Ginger who enjoys going for car rides and stealing Gina’s scarf and gloves in the winter. Gina also has a bearded dragon named Bubba who is the love of her life. Gina enjoys taking long walks and spending time with her pets.

Feedback from our clients

  • "I have been taking my 16 year old lab, Oscar, to this vet since he came to me in 2004, and I wouldn't take any of my dogs anywhere else! They are so wonderful with both pets and people. I would recommend any of the doctors and staff to anyone."

  • "We have been going to another vet for years. We wanted to have our year old Wheaten Terrier, Rylee spayed by laparoscopy so she would have less pain and be back to her usual activity in 2-3 days instead of 10-14 days. Our vet does the traditional spay. We had a consult meet and greet with Dr. Courtney Pierce. She answered all our questions and so friendly and professional. They have a state of the art OR suite. Rylee did great. On post op day three she spotted a squirrel and did an all out chase with no ill effects! All the staff were great."

  • "I love Dr. Jernigan at AHLB and would never take my dog anywhere else! The staff is excellent with animals and always professional, courteous and respectful to owners. I have trusted this animal hospital for all of my dog's care, including check ups, surgeries (she's had three!) and for boarding when we have to go out of town. Every experience I have had here has been wonderful and I highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a veterinary office for their furry children!."
