Your Veterinary Team in Sugar Land, TX
I have been in veterinary medicine for 16 years. I have worked in shelter medicine, emergency/specialty, veterinary research, large animal, and now general practice. I graduated with my bachelor’s in animal sciences and my master’s in animal behavior. I have worked in customer service since I was 16 years old. I have 3 fur babies: Ruby, an 11-month-old border collie, Rowdy, an 8-month-old DSH, and Prieya, a 10-year-old Palomino quarter horse. In my free time, I like to ride my horse, spend time with friends and family, and train in boxing and Krav Maga. I was recently just invited into Krav Houston’s apprentice program!

Hey! Erik here, I was born in Florida and lived there for most of my life. I was enrolled in South Tech Academy’s veterinary assistance program for 4 years in Highschool and graduated with my Certification in Veterinary Assistance. I have been working in the field ever since and recently moved to Houston. My next favorite thing to do after caring for animals is to play video games.
I graduated with my associates in science. I love to travel and have lived in Illinois and Alaska! In my free time, I like to spend as much time as possible with my partner.

Hi! My name is Farise and I am a Houston native. I recently graduated from the University of Virginia with a B.S. in Kinesiology. My love for animals grew while I worked in local animal shelters and influenced my decision to pursue veterinary medicine. I am so happy to gain experience at Lighthouse as I plan on applying to vet school in the coming years.
Howdy! My name is Katie, and I was born and raised in the Fort Bend County area.

In the Fall of 2021, I received my Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from Texas A&M University. My agricultural background, coupled with my dedication to serving the community, has fostered my love and passion for large and small animals.
