Practice Manager

Amanda has been in the veterinary field for 17 years. Her veterinary career started back in 2007 where she started her first job at a no-kill animal shelter. Amanda was born & raised in northeastern Pennsylvania on a running dairy farm where her love for animals began. She grew up working alongside goats, horses, cows, small pocket pets, birds & of course cats & dogs! She always knew animals were her passion! Amanda attended San Diego University and graduated with her Bachelor’s in Wildlife Biology. Aside from helping save animals, Amanda enjoys anything that involves the outdoors, reading, going to the beach, hiking, traveling, and of course spending time with friends, family and her own small farm that consists of a not-so-mini pig named Jelly Bean, a 3 legged rat terrier named Cache, a chorkie named Hazelnut & a cat named Oliver (all rescues, of course!).


Eric C.

Veterinary Technician

Eric is a veterinary technician at both Companion Pet Care and Indian Creek Pet Hospital. He has a BS in biology from Emory University and is pursuing his associate’s in veterinary technology from St. Petersburg College so that he can become a certified technician. He held a six-week internship at C.R.O.W. (The Clinic for Rehabilitation of Wildlife) on Sanibel and shadowed doctors at both ICPH and Coral vet clinic while still in college. Eric chose to work in the veterinary field because he finds it fulfilling to see how happy a healthy pet can make its owner.  He also takes pride in making sure every process that goes into making your pet healthy goes as smoothly as possible with as little stress as possible for your pet.  When Eric isn’t working he enjoys walking in the local parks, playing Pokemon GO, and watching anime curled up with his dog Emi.

Her love for animals started when she was young, and she would bring home sick pets to take care of them and give them the love they deserve. Vanessa has a large furry (and scaly) family that includes three dogs Gator, Jedi and Rey, two bearded dragons, Fergi and Helios, a cat, Kratos, a hamster, Hamilton, and a pond full of Koi fish! In her spare time, she enjoys going to the beach with her daughter and spending time with her friends and family.

Alexis, although originally from Ohio, found her way to Companion Pet Care through a previous coworker. She’s always had a love of animals, but wondered if it was something she wanted to pursue as a career. However, after working and helping the animals, she’s decided it’s been the best decision she’s ever made. In her spare time, Alexis likes to spend time with her two cats, Marlin and Mako. She also enjoys being outdoors and trying new things!

Kenny O.

Veterinary Assistant

My name is Ken’Dayzha (aka Kenny) & I was born in Fort Myers, FL but I was raised in Valdosta, Ga. I’ve had a compassionate love for animals since I was a little girl. I pursued college for dental assisting then changed career fields again to be a certified nursing assistant. After years of loving the fact that I could make a difference in human lives, I decided to pursue college in the veterinary field to help animals. The love I have for this field is far beyond an explanation. I enjoy being able to meet new pets and see each of their personalities every day, making animal’s feel better warms my heart. I have 4 dogs and 2 snakes that I care for at home. Outside of work, I love spending quality time with my family. I also enjoy eating at new restaurants daily!
