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

Lily feels that she has a gift for working with people and understanding their wants and needs. Since she’d always had a soft spot for animals, she realized that working in the veterinary field was a great way to help both pet owners and their furry companions!

Lily was raised in Panama, and her family moved to New Jersey when she was still young. Her veterinary career began in Greensboro, North Carolina, where she worked at a pet resort before moving to Colorado to work as a kennel supervisor in multiple clinics there. After working for three years at a neighboring animal hospital, Lily decided to join The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt’s compassionate care team after a friend told her they had an opening. At home, Lily has three pets of her own. Alaska is a white mixed breed who can sit, stand, roll over, and shake hands. Mamacita is a young Chihuahua/rat terrier mix who is quite sassy and independent. Anakin is a bearded dragon who loves to go outside for nature hikes. In her free time, Lily enjoys indulging her eclectic music tastes, watching crime programs on television, and spending time with her friends and dogs.

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!."
