Clinic Manager & Head Veterinary Technician
Whitney has adored animals ever since she was a little girl. Taking care of her childhood dog—and her litter of baby puppies—sealed Whitney’s fate. She was destined to become a veterinary professional! Now, she’s proud to serve as Clermont Animal Hospital’s Clinic Manager and Head Veterinary Technician.

Whitney is from Georgetown, Ohio and was only 17 years old when she started working a summer job as a Kennel Technician. A year later, she attended Morehead State University to earn her Bachelor’s degree in veterinary technology, starting here at Clermont Animal Hospital to fulfill her internship requirements during her studies. After graduating, Whitney was more than happy to accept a job offer! She’s been a member of the hospital family ever since.

Around the clinic, Whitney loves that every shift is a little different—the fast-paced environment keeps her on her toes. She’s especially fond of seeing the area’s exotic animals and always loves to see a big snake or lizard visit the hospital. Most of all, she enjoys interacting one-on-one with pet owners and helping their animal companions to live the happiest, healthiest lives possible.

When she isn’t here at the clinic, Whitney can be found crafting, cheering on her favorite sports teams, and spending time with her dog, Bruno. He’s a Boxer/Great Dane mix who likes to think he’s a lap dog even though he weighs about 130 pounds.
Veterinary Assistant II
Sam has wanted to work with animals ever since she was a young girl — she never even considered another path in life. She showed pigs and goats for 11 years while growing up, and loved every minute. Those early experiences caring for animals left no doubt in Sam’s mind: she wanted to help the earth’s creatures as a member of the veterinary profession.

Originally from Fayetteville, Ohio, Sam first joined the Clermont Animal Hospital family as a volunteer in 2013 to satisfy her hours for Morehead State University’s Veterinary Technician program. That December, Sam became an employee. Now, she’s a Level II Veterinary Assistant! As she becomes proficient in all technical skills, she enjoys seeing what kind of exotic pets visit the clinic. Of course, getting to meet puppies and kittens always puts a smile on Sam’s face as well.

When she’s not at work, Sam enjoys reading, drawing, cheering on the Indianapolis Colts, and doting on her own pets at home. She has three cats—TigerLily, a gray tabby rescued from Clermont Animal Hospital; Rufio the brown tabby, who is the most docile creature Sam has ever met; and a black kitten named Bagheera—as well as a laid-back crested gecko named Smaug.
Lynnlee Royse
Veterinary Assistant II
Lynnlee has always wanted to devote herself to the health and wellbeing of animals. She wants to make sure that others’ pets are cared for in the same way that she cares for her own companions! Lynnlee is able to do just that as a member of the hospital’s Veterinary Assistant team.

Lynnlee is originally from Kentucky but has lived in Eastgate, Ohio for more than 20 years. She was a client here at Clermont Animal Hospital before she became an employee—she brought her own pup in for vaccinations and asked about a job, and the rest is history. Lynnlee has been a part of the team since 2015 and has enjoyed every moment since.

Most of Lynnlee’s free time away from work is spent with her family. She has a wonderful daughter and also shares her life with several animal companions: two dogs named Ibanez and Randy, a cat, and eight reptile pets!
Veterinary Assistant I
Darcy grew up in Bethel and was active in the 4-H Club during her younger years—she has fond memories of showing goats, rabbits, chickens, and turkeys. Those early experiences with animals made a lasting impression, and Darcy always knew that she would love to work with animals professionally. That’s why she decided to join the world of veterinary medicine!

Darcy first started working in the veterinary field when she was only 15 years old, and she’s been doing it ever since. She joined the team here at Clermont Animal Hospital in June of 2018, and serves the area’s pets and animal parents as a Veterinary Assistant. Darcy finds that one of her favorite parts of her job is the great team she gets to work alongside every day—nothing beats helping others as a part of a team of animal-lovers just like herself!
In her spare time, Darcy can be found enjoying the great outdoors, hiking, and spending time with her own pet at home. She shares her life with her beloved Corgi, Piper.
Veterinary Technician’s Assistant
Leanna always wanted to work in a role that allowed her to make a difference, and she wanted to love what she did every day. Having always had a soft spot for pets, the choice was clear for Leanna: veterinary medicine was the perfect fit! Now, she gets to help animals as a member of the Clermont Animal Hospital family.

Leanna volunteered in a number of pet clinics before signing on to volunteer here at Clermont Animal Hospital in June of 2018. In August of that year, she was hired on as an employee. Leanna serves as a Veterinary Technician’s Assistant, and particularly likes scrubbing in for surgeries and getting to see the exotic species that the hospital treats. For her, the learning experience that her work provides is incredibly valuable!
Outside of work, Leanna enjoys traveling, writing, and playing video games. She and her family share their lives with one pet at home: Mack, a Shih-Tzu who likes to get into trouble when he feels his owners aren’t paying enough attention to him.
Asia Norman
Veterinary Technician’s Assistant
Asia credits her own dog, Budders, for inspiring her work in the veterinary field. She never fully understood how close one could become with their pet until she developed that special connection with her beloved dog—that’s why she decided to help others’ pets by becoming a veterinary professional. Asia now serves as a Technician’s Assistant while studying veterinary medicine in college, and plans on becoming a veterinarian herself in the future!

Asia is originally from Michigan but has lived in Ohio for the past 13 years. Through her business class during her senior year of high school, she started interning here at Clermont Animal Hospital (the very same hospital that she brought her own pets to!). After volunteering and receiving on-the-job training for a year, Asia was invited to join the hospital team as a Technician’s Assistant in 2019. She’s been serving animals and their loving owners in that capacity ever since.

Currently, Asia is completing her undergraduate degree at Northern Kentucky University, and has plans to continue on to veterinary school in the future. When time permits between her jam-packed school and work schedules, she likes scrapbooking, reading, practicing Tae Kwon Do—she received her black belt when she was only 12 years old!—and spending time with her family. Asia shares her life with one pet: the aforementioned Budders, a pampered Pomeranian who loves to be the center of attention at all times.
Dori grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio with her parents, three brothers, and plenty of family pets. For her, a home just wasn’t a home without an animal companion. When the opportunity arose for her to pay it forward and benefit the lives of not only pets, but their loving owners, Dori knew that she couldn’t pass it up. That’s why she became a member of the Clermont Animal Hospital family!

Dori joined the hospital team in 2018 and serves as a member of the front-desk staff. Her favorite part of her work is getting to meet a wide variety of personalities on a daily basis—no two days are ever quite the same. She’s also fond of working alongside a team of passionate animal-lovers just like herself!
At home, Dori has one pet of her own: Lyla, a dog whose favorite pastimes include basking in the sun, chasing squirrels, and giving slobbery kisses.
Taylor McKinney
Taylor shares her life with a few pets of her own—she knows firsthand how important our animal companions are. That’s why she loves to help nurture the bonds between pets and their human family members as a member of the veterinary profession! Taylor is a member of Clermont Animal Hospital’s skilled front-desk team.

Taylor is from Georgetown, Ohio and was first introduced to Clermont Animal Hospital when the clinic’s very own Whitney came to Taylor’s high school for career day. Taylor chatted with Whitney after her presentation, and the experience made a permanent impression. After graduating, Taylor started volunteering here at the hospital, and she’s been a member of the clinic team ever since.

Taylor lives with her sister in Amelia and attends Northern Kentucky University to study chemistry. When she has time between her school work and her duties here at the hospital, she loves reading and spending time with her pets. She has two mischievous ferrets, Rocket and Grut, as well as a Chihuahua named Phoebe and a red Terrier mix who goes by Rigby.
