Mark R. St.Onge, DVM
A resident of the Atlanta area since 1993, Dr. St.Onge is originally from Arkansas where he attended and graduated from the University of Arkansas. He is a 1988 graduate of Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine and has spent time in veterinary practice in Georgia, South Carolina, Utah, and Virginia. His split SEC alumni background is no problem for him as he is an avid Arkansas Razorback fan.
Having spent over a dozen years managing and visiting veterinary facilities, and speaking at veterinary schools, Dr. St.Onge has seen all aspects of veterinary practice. For three years he was fortunate enough to be an invited speaker at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine, and he enjoys the mentorship opportunities being a "bit older" affords him. Dr. St.Onge finds his best moments are spent in the outdoors, with his family and friends, and with the pets he sees on a daily basis. He and his family which include his Atlanta Humane Society adoptee dog, Apple, have lived in the neighboring Northlake area for the past decade and a half, and he is thrilled to be part of the Brookhaven business community.
Britton Hammett-McCurry, DVM
Dr. Britton worked with us on a part-time basis for roughly 3 years before joining us on a full-time basis. She adds a decidedly younger, more female, and arguably more attractive viewpoint to our medicine and appearance. A native of Georgia, And an Honor Graduate for UGA College of Veterinary Medicine, Britton loves adventure and travel (both with and without her husband). She spends a portion of her time doing volunteer veterinary work in Nicaragua, and is the surrogate mother to a collection of misfit pets. Personable, fun-loving, and a great fit for Buckhaven, Britton’s major flaws appear to be an unexplained interest in Game of Thrones, Outlander, and Harry Potter. The fortunate end of Game of Thrones (I will synopsize: Daenerys and JR Snow awake in a shower in Snow White's house where they discover Tyrion is the missing 8th Dwarf and the entire GOT series was a dream sequence) has allowed Britton the free time to question what she considers good writing and to fully commit to us.
Jonathan Holzwarth, DVM- Associate Veterinarian
Dr. Jon (or Dr. Hogwarts) is a recent graduate with honors from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. A native of Boston, Jon "attended Davidson University in the glory days of Steph Curry", and is an avid Patriots fan (or what we call a Damn Yankee.) Dr. Jon comes to us with experience in an Atlanta area clinic, and with a desire to become part of the community. He is dedicated to both his cat, Sushi, his hipster beard, and clearly remaining in a single lifestyle setting. Having attained Grand Master in Dungeon and Dragonry, Jon moved on and (like Dr. Britton) is now a fan of Harry Potter which can only mean that UGA is promoting a fantasyland culture.
Samantha - Receptionist
A transplant from the Commonwealth of Maryland, Samantha is our resident crazy cat lady. As if that weren't enough she is also into anime and professional wrestling. Samantha has recent experience in a human internal medicine practice, and is thrilled to now be working in a veterinary setting. She has a resident population of five cats, and unless we stop her, any number of pass through foster cats/kittens. She loves to cook, and frequently does so for the rest of us.
Schelby - Vet Assistant
With past experience in a local boarding facility, Schelby is our newest staff member. Originally from Conyers, Schelby moved to the big city to live large. Rarely flustered and ever relaxed Schelby likes spending her free time with her dog and cat as well as perfecting her Poi Dance techniques. It's all cool.
Mary - Vet Assistant
Mary has recently joined us as part of a workforce/societal reintroduction program. In the past she has vacillated between bartending and veterinary practice (which is a match much like peanut butter and jelly), and says she now feels like she is where she was meant to be. Mary lives with her best friend (who she is NOT dating) and a collection of 2 dogs and 2 cats.
Alyssa - Vet Assistant
A native of Indiana (we are to understand that this is a state north of the Mason-Dixon and somewhere near the Great Lakes, maybe), Ally was a child tennis prodigy until after a failed attempt on the USTA "Mini" tour (a tennis tour for the vertically challenged) she moved on to attend Purdue (pronounced "Per-doo") University where she acquired a GED (Georgia Equivalency Degree) in Animal Science and Anthropology. In addition to her work schedule at BVC, Alyssa works part time as a hand model for children. In her free time Ally can be found on the Beltline where her 70s era Farah Fawcett hair and roller blades are a real hit. She lives with her two cats and continues to work on her personal evolution including ridding herself of the use of the term "you guys."
A nurse with two Bachelor Degrees (albeit from Auburn so essentially an Arkansas High School diploma), Michelle works weekends helping with our boarding pets. Additionally Michelle has worked in laboratory, veterinary clinic, and National Park settings. She loves spending her free time with her children and pets.
