Dogwood Vet Joie Austin

Twelve years ago, I was working as the assistant to the Vice Principal in a high school. On a whim, I applied for the veterinary receptionist job at Dogwood. I eventually became a veterinary assistant, and then attended veterinary technician school while working full time, pregnant, and with a toddler! I have lived on my 7-acre spot in Hillsborough with my husband, two children, two cats, and two dogs for the past 15 years. I became a RVT in 2017 and have a special interest in working with senior pets. I also work part time as a consultant for an animal toxicity service. In my spare time I like cooking, baking, and eating, crafting (especially costumes and mini dioramas), and reading. I am a huge fan of Prince and UNC basketball, and a lifelong animal lover. Tell your dog (and cat) I said hi!
