Sara Warren at Corpus Christi Animal Hospital

Sara Warren
Practice Manager

I have been with Doddridge Animal Clinic since early 2013 but have been in the Veterinary field for over 10 years. During that time, I attended Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and graduated with a Bachelors in Business Administration in May 2011. Even though they are four-legged, I have two kiddos of my own. Sasha, a sweet nine year old English Bulldog and Saki, a feisty three year old Calico. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also spend a decent amount of time on the water, either fishing inshore, offshore or just boating and enjoying the sun and Texas waters. At Doddridge Animal Clinic, I strive to see that our patients are comfortable and provided with quality veterinary care and compassion. I have an open door policy with my wonderful staff and extend that to our clients as well. Without your input, whether positive or negative, we can not move forward and continue to provide high quality medicine for your beloved pets. I look forward to hearing from you!

Client Relations Specialists

Jackie Puente

Jackie Puente at Corpus Christi animal hospitalI am one of the client relations specialists here at Doddridge Animal Clinic. I started working here in the fall of 2004. I started as an Animal Caretaker. I have always had a special interest in animals and find this job a perfect fit for me. I share my home with an 80 pound Pit Bull named “X”. He has also “worked” here at Doddridge Animal Clinic, from time to time, donating his blood for sick anemic animals. I am happily married with one handsome son and three beautiful daughters. I look forward to meeting you and if you have any questions, I would be happy to help!

Julie Moore

Julie Moore at Corpus Christi animal hospitalI’ve always had a passion for animals, so during my senior year of high school I started working for my family veterinarian. I was easily hooked and have loved every minute of it. I have a 4 year old dachshund named Amy and a 2 year old cat names Jasper; who play with each other endlessly. When I’m not working I enjoy going out dancing, hanging out with friends at the beach, and playing with my animals.

Melissa Stech-Perez

Melissa Stech-Perez at Corpus Christi animal hospitalI am one of the client relations specialists here at Doddridge Animal Clinic. I started working in the spring of 2002. I have found my job to be rewarding and fun! The doctors and staff here make quality veterinary medicine #1. I have been exposed to many continuing education courses, which help me to help you. I have 3 furry babies at home. “Love Bug” is a Bouncing Boston Terrier, “Baby” is a Feisty Frenchy and “Dotty” is my 14 year old Chihuahua. In my spare time I enjoy weekend motorcycle rides with my husband Ernest. I have 4 wonderful children, David, Destiny, Dillon and Daniel. I look forward to meeting you at your next visit.

Veterinary Assistants

I’m a very versatile employee having worked multiple positions throughout the years. All of my free time is spent with my daughter, son and fur baby Gizelle.


Erica at Corpus Christi animal hospitalI have been an animal lover since I was a child. I remember wanting to work at Doddridge Animal Clinic when I was a little girl. I started working at Doddridge in September 2015 as a kennel attendant. A few months later I moved up to a technician helping the Doctor with our patients. I really love my job and I enjoy seeing our clients and their pets. To further my education and career in animal care, I am currently enrolled in a Veterinary Technician Distance Learning Program through San Juana College in New Mexico. In my free time, I spend it with my husband and our fur-kids. I have four dogs. Jester and Trooper are my big goofy pitbulls, Delilah is my spunky black lab and the king of the group is my 12 year old Chihuahua, Tito.

Lilly at Corpus Christi animal hospitalHey there! I have been with Doddridge since October 2013; although, I have been in the Veterinary field for over 6 years. I graduated in August 2017 from Texas A&M Kingsville with a Bachelor’s in Animal Science. I have five furkids by the name of Iroh, Azula, Ozai, Asami, and Marceline, and have been raising Shih Tzu for over 10 years. I have a particular interest in reproduction, and genetics, but have a love and admiration for anything animal related. In my free time, I enjoy video games, traveling, and spending time with loved ones.


Myranda at Corpus Christi animal hospitalAnimals have been a huge part of my life ever since I can remember. I have one special canine friend named Hendrix. I first pursued my love of animals working at a pet store but since given the opportunity to work at Corpus Christi Animal Clinic it has inspired me to further my education in Veterinary Technology. I have been blessed with a great mentor and an excellent team of gifted individuals. I am looking forward to working with everyone at Doddridge Animal Clinic in hopes of making our family bigger and brighter!


Nicole at Corpus Christi animal hospitalI have two dogs Roscoe and Daisy, who are my world. I currently attend Texas A&M Corpus Christi and I am working towards my biomedical degree. I plan to attend The College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M. CCAC was such a great working environment and everyone was wonderful to work with. Both Dr. Hughes and Nan made all of us here feel like we were one big family. Working with Doddridge Animal Clinic will be an exciting new experience!
