My name is Ashley and I was born and raised in the Lexington, KY area. My love for animals started at a very young age, which to no surprise for my family, led me to the animal care field starting in 2008. I’ve currently been at Nicholasville Road Animal Hospital working as a veterinary assistant since February 2016. I’m happily married to my husband Kyle and we share our home with our loving cats and dog.

My name is Chelsea and I have been at Nicholasville Road Animal Hospital since September 2016. I have always loved animals and I love getting to come to work and help pets and their owners. I feel very grateful that my job as a veterinary assistant leaves me feeling happy and fulfilled. At the end of the day I love coming home to my black lab mix, Duchess, and watching Netflix with her.

MRS. MELANIE PATTON

I grew up in the hills of Eastern Kentucky, and am a true coal miner’s daughter. I graduated from the University of Kentucky with a BA in Psychology in 2000, and I have worked at NRAH since August of 2003, doing both reception and vet assistant duties. I am very passionate about my occupation because it allows me to interact with interesting people from all walks of life, and enables me to enrich the quality of life for so many precious pets (getting cuddles and kisses is also a huge perk!). I was involved in the “Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Bluegrass” program for over 13 years, prior to my “Little” and I graduating from the program when she turned 18. My husband teaches Latin, and in our spare time we enjoy playing music together, tending to our fur babies, cooking creative vegetarian meals, camping, and binge watching our favorite shows on Netflix.
