Stephanie

Stephanie

Stephanie was born and raised in Houston, TX. She graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Minor in Sociology, and is working towards her Masters in Business Administration in the near future. Stephanie began her career in veterinary medicine in 2006 as a Client Relations Specialist and worked her way up to a Veterinary Nurse in 2008. Stephanie’s customer service, nursing abilities and management skills helped her move up to the Hospital Manager position for both Bay Glen Animal Hospital & the Feline Medical Center in January of 2015. 

Stephanie enjoys interacting with the Feline Medical Center's clients and their sweet kitties. To her, a relationship between clients and their pets is a rewarding part of her job. When Stephanie is not working, she spends her time with her fiancé Jason, and their four-legged children. Together they have a dilute Calico cat, McKenzie, a Rat Terrier/Jack Russell mix, Daisy, Shih-Tzu, Meeka, and a Westhighland Terrier, Izzie. And just recently, they have adopted a black Lab Mix, Willow. Stephanie is a season ticket holder for UH and loves to cheer on her COOGS at football games! Stephanie also enjoys spoiling her little nephews, going to movies, comedy shows and planning her wedding!

Angela-gasque

Angela

Angela started working in the veterinary field in 1997 for a co-op program in high school. It was her love for cats that brought her to The Feline Medical Center in September 2006. Angela is so excited to be a part of our hospital team and we are very fortunate to have her.

Angela loves educating owners about how to keep their feline friends healthy and how to care for cats who need medical care to recover. She always enjoys meeting new clients and their furry feline friends.

Born and raised in the Deer Park area, Angela currently lives there with her family. In her time away from work, she enjoys spending time with her family, especially her adorable son, husband, and Milo, her kitty.

Jessica-payne-pic

Jessica

Jessica knew when she was young that she would grow up and get a job taking care of animals. Providing pets with the best possible quality of life has been a lifelong desire. She dedicates herself to assisting animals and their families in leading an extensive and fur-filled life. She graduated from Vet Tech Institute of Houston in 2014. Upon achieving her Associates degree she broadened her knowledge and experience at a mixed animal practice in Seabrook prior to joining our terrific staff here at the Feline Medical Center.

Jessica lives in Bacliff with her husband Jackson and their tortoise shell cats, Brownie and Ala Mode. In her spare time she enjoys being in the company of her family, making arts and crafts, and reading inspirational material to enrich herself. She believes in the power of positivity and maintains an attitude of gratitude. Her favorite quote is, “Everyday may not be good, but there is something good in every day.” Also, “Everything works out in the end and if doesn’t work out then it’s not the end.”

Jessica’s favorite aspect of her job is the bonds that are formed with clients and their pets as we care for and comfort them throughout their years. She appreciates the love and compassion that you all have for your furry little family members. Also getting to play with tons of adorable kitties on a daily basis is quite the job perk.

Crystal was born and raised in Houston, Texas where she graduated from Milby High School in 2000. After high school, she attended the University of Houston where she received her Bachelor's degree in English in 2005. After working in the research field for several years, Crystal answered her calling and attended the Vet Tech Institute of Houston. There, she graduated Alpha Beta Kappa and was awarded an Associate of Applied Science in Veterinary Technology in December of 2011.

She takes great pride in fulfilling her life-long dream of working with animals. Her past experience includes volunteering for the Houston Zoo and the Houston Humane Society. Crystal says the best part of her career is being able to witness young pets grow up and become healthy, happy adult pets.

Crystal has two four-legged children that she adopted from local shelters. "Duke" is a black lab mix who is the best cuddle bug, but also loves the outdoors. "James" is also a black lab mix who keeps the whole family in active mode. In her time away from the hospital, she spends it with her family engaging in outdoor activities, cooking vegetarian dishes, and watching movies.
