Dawn

Director of Hospital Administration

Dawn was very young when she first realized that she wanted to work in the animal-care field someday. She knew that her passion for pet care and her natural people skills would serve her well! Now, Dawn has been a member of the Cross Creek Animal Hospital family for more than 16 wonderful years—she looks forward to continuing to serve the area’s pets and animal owners as the clinic’s Director of Hospital Administration.

Dawn grew up in Colorado and Vermont and first began her journey in animal medicine as a Kennel Assistant. After about a year, she became a receptionist in the same hospital, a position she would enjoy for many years to come. In 2002, Dawn joined the team here at Cross Creek Animal Hospital and has been benefiting the pet owners of the Fayetteville area ever since.

When she isn’t tending to her administrative duties here at the clinic, Dawn can be found enjoying the great outdoors, exercising with her husband, or relaxing with her family and pets. She has a Boxer, Loki, who makes Dawn smile on a daily basis, as well as a loveable cat named Johnny Cash.

Jackie

Head of Client Services

Jackie comes from a long line of animal-lovers, and her family fostered multiple litters of puppies throughout Jackie’s childhood years. She’s always harbored a deep appreciation for the joy that our animal companions bring! For Jackie, making a difference in the lives of others’ pets is a dream come true.

Originally from Warren, Michigan, Jackie started working part-time at a boarding facility while she was still in high school. By the time she was earning her Bachelor’s degree at Michigan State University, she was serving as the facility’s full-time manager during summer breaks! When Jackie relocated with her husband to Fayetteville, she joined the team here at Cross Creek Animal Hospital in October 2015 as the Head of Guest Services, then transitioned into her current position as Head of Client Services a few years later.

One of Jackie’s favorite parts of her job is educating the area’s pet owners about the importance of preventative care, especially heartworm, flea, and tick prevention. She also loves mentoring her employees to help others grow within the clinic setting. Jackie also likes that the field of veterinary medicine is always changing; new innovations, technology, and research means that she never stops learning!

Jackie and her husband, Andrew—a member of the United States Army currently stationed at Fort Bragg—have one pet of their own at home: Mindy, a rescued German Shepherd/Beagle mix who can often be seen coming to work with Jackie to attend doggie daycare.

Ashleigh

Head of Guest Services

Growing up, Ashleigh shared her life with all manner of pets. Everything from dogs, cats, hamsters, and ferrets to chinchillas, fish, birds, and snakes kept her company at home! She knows firsthand the love and loyalty our animal companions provide—as a veterinary professional, Ashleigh feels fortunate and proud to give something back on a daily basis.

Ashleigh is originally from Fort Ritchie, Maryland and was only 18 years old when she first started working as a Kennel Attendant. A few years later, she was offered a slot in the facility’s apprenticeship program and eventually became a Certified Multi-Purpose Canine Trainer, helping to ready dogs for police and military use.

When Ashleigh’s older sister, who previously worked here at Cross Creek Animal Hospital as a Veterinary Technician, mentioned that the clinic was hiring, Ashleigh jumped at her chance. She’s been a member of the hospital family since September of 2016 and now serves as Head of Guest Services! Ashleigh is in charge of all of the hospital’s boarding operations and makes it her personal mission to ensure that each and every visitor to the clinic has a positive, comfortable experience.

A few of Ashleigh’s passions outside of the veterinary world are motorcycle riding and scuba diving—she’s been a fully certified diver since the age of 14, and is considered a Master Diver with over 150 dives under her belt! She shares her home with multiple pets: a huge Newfoundland dog named Arnan; a ball python who goes by Drake; and eight cats named Angus, Ringo, Flash Gordon, Machiavelli, Rocket, JiJi, Teal’c, and Kraken.
