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 works with us on a part-time basis adding a decidedly younger and more female viewpoint to our medicine. A native of Georgia, Britton loves adventure and travel (both with and without her husband) with her more recent trips being to Machu Picchu and Nicaragua. Personable, fun-loving, and a great fit for Buckhaven, Britton’s major flaws appear to be an unexplainable interest in candy and Harry Potter.
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.
Haylie - Vet Assistant
Haylie is currently pursuing a graduate degree in something or another, and as such works on a very part-time basis. (Think humanitarian effort on my part.) Having worked in veterinary practice for many years Haylie is occasionally able to be of value to us. A self-proclaimed hippy kid of Californian parents Haylie "loves horses and her husband too." Home skillet be free-falling. Literally.
A nurse with two Bachelor Degrees (albeit from Auburn), 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.
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, but 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 rid herself of the use of the term "you guys."
