We put the patients first!
Margaret’s background is in accounting, business, and real estate—she never expected to work in a veterinary clinic. However, while accounting is her professional interest, animals are her personal one. Working here at Small Animal Hospital allows Margaret to utilize her skills to better the lives of pets and their owners on a daily basis.
Margaret attended Florida Southern College in Lakeland and has lived in Fort Myers since 1957. In the fall of 1992, her accountant contacted her about helping out in a local veterinary clinic. Margaret started here at Small Animal Hospital shortly afterward on a part-time basis, then transitioned into full-time work in late 1998. She’s been here ever since.
Whenever anyone would ask her what she wanted to be when she grew up, Angela had her answer ready: someone who worked hands-on with animals. She’s been passionate about pet care ever since she can remember! That’s why she decided to become a veterinary professional. Now, Angela is a proud member of Small Animal Hospital’s Veterinary Assistant team.
Angela is originally from Mexico but grew up right here in Fort Myers, Florida. After searching for a program in which to study veterinary technology, she stumbled across Cape Coral Technical College—Angela knew right away that she had found her calling.
Nancy entered the veterinary profession because of her grandfather, who had always seen how caring and compassionate Nancy was around pets. He got Nancy her first job in the animal-care world, and her career took off from there! Now, she’s a Veterinary Technician here at Small Animal Hospital.
Born in Heidelberg, Germany, Nancy lived in Holland, Georgia, Colorado, and New Jersey while growing up thanks to her father’s career in the United States Army. After he retired, the family settled in southern Florida. It was during her college career that Nancy first started working at a local pet shop; two years later, she took a job with the veterinarian that worked for the store and remained there for the next four years.
Rodney was born and raised right here in Fort Myers, where he spent time around animals from day one. Pets have played a huge role in his life ever since he can remember—what better way to return the favor than by working in the veterinary field? Rodney is a proud member of Small Animal Hospital’s Kennel Technician team.
After some time spent working as a groundskeeper, Rodney decided to jump headfirst into the world of animal medicine and joined the Small Animal Hospital family in 2017. He’s excited to continue growing in the field of veterinary care, and he finds that he particularly enjoys building relationships with the hospital’s furry visitors over the years; many of them are frequent boarders here at the clinic!
Brigitte was surrounded by animals growing up, and she’s always felt an innate passion for their care and well-being. For her, a career in animal medicine simply made sense. Now, Brigitte is living her dream—she gets to care for pets hands-on as a part of a team of animal-lovers just like herself!
Brigitte is originally from New Jersey and worked in the administrative field for more than 10 years. She moved to Florida in 2017 and attended Cape Coral Technical College to study animal care, completing an internship at the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife in Sanibel during her coursework, and was then referred to Small Animal Hospital in the spring of 2018. Brigitte has been a part of the clinic family ever since!
