Our Team 


Jennifer Nichols

-Practice Manager

Jennifer always has a kind word and smile for everyone and leads the team of our literal Mom and Pop small business with compassion and heart. As she has been married to Dr. Nichols for over three decades, the world of veterinary medicine is second nature to her. Her Bachelor's Degree in Communications from The University of Texas, additional education from Texas A&M University, and many years of professional success outside of the veterinary field are valuable assets to AADC. Her fortes are providing clear and thorough information and developing bonds with our pet owners. Away from the clinic, she enjoys playing tennis, caring for the family pets, and mothering beloved sons, Luke and Blake.

Kat feels very fortunate to have a career in which she makes a positive difference in the lives of animals. As a veterinary technician, Kat is dedicated to providing high quality medical care as well as fostering relationships with her patients and their parents. Kat is a graduate of the Veterinary Clinical Assistant Program at Austin Community College and received her Bachelor's Degree in Communication-Journalism from Lamar University. In her spare time Kat enjoys attending the performing arts, spending time with friends and family, and - of course- her feline companions JJ, Harriet, and Millie.

From pet sitting to working at a racehorse rescue, Suzanne has enjoyed a life of caring for animals and found her true passion as a Veterinary Technician.

Suzanne is currently enrolled at Penn Foster College, working toward becoming a Licensed Veterinary Technician. She enjoys hiking with her Border Collie, Rowan, and training and showing her horses, Contego and Watson.

Heather has worked as a ranch hand (caring for 50 hounds and 10 horses!), is an accomplished equestrian, and has broad experience in small animal veterinary clinic settings. Heather is thrilled to be able to combine her two loves - animals and medicine. In her free time, she enjoys hiking with her lab mix, Loki, and riding her horse, Orion.
