Meet Our Team

Maddy Bridger

Office Manager

I joined the Pet Health Center team in March 2018. I have a boxer named Lucca who loves to go on hikes and explore trails with me. I have 10 years previous experience in pet care and I am very excited to join the vet med world. I look forward to bringing my knowledge of pet care and management to Pet Health Center and learning so much more!

Melissa Kelley

Zone Coordinator - Client Relations Specialist 

My name is Melissa. I joined the Pet Health Center team as a Client Relations Specialist in September 2013 and became Zone Coordinator in August 2014​​. I moved to the Memphis area from North Carolina in 2012. My two furry children are Sampson and KC who each have their own funny personalities. Sampson watches TV and barks at any animal, real or cartoon and KC loves to blow bubbles in her water bowl when she drinks. They always make me laugh. I've had a lifelong dream of working with animals in some way or another and I am fortunate to be able to work with the amazing team here at Pet Health Center. Everyday is rewarding! My goal is to make every client and pet feel special and cared for. I love seeing clients and their pets as they journey through life together. I look forward to meeting new patients and clients and continuing to build relationships with our current clientele. 

Jennifer Burkhart

Client Relations Specialist

Hey y'all! My name is Jennifer and I've been a part of the Pet Heath Center team since April of 2014. I've been an animal lover my entire life and, as a Client Relations Specialist, I have the pleasure of meeting and assisting clients who share the same love for their furry companions as I do! I couldn't have asked for a better place to work; the staff is like my second family. Outside of the clinic, I enjoy going to the lake, sporting events and, most importantly, spending time with my 2 1/2 year old daughter, Hayley, and her four-legged siblings: Harley (pictured), Rocky and Bristol.

Joyce Gearhart

Client Relations Specialist

My name is Joyce and I joined Pet Health Center as a Client Relations Specialist in 2003 and love being part of the compassionate environment of caring for pets. The special bond and friendships with the dogs and cats we care for and their "parents" is very rewarding. Away from the clinic I enjoy traveling, camping, kayaking, and being outdoors! My husband and I are empty nesters and now share our life and home with "Sheriti", a sweet and colorful cat.
