AVH’s Dedicated Staff
VeterinarianI’m Dr. Allison Graf! I am a 2018 graduate from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine and a Georgia native from Savannah, GA. I received my B.S. in both Biological Science and Avian Biology from the University of Georgia in 2013. I have a strong passion for providing high-quality medicine but particularly have an interest in being a good communicator with clients. My special veterinary interests are: wellness, behavioral therapy, neurology, and surgery. Outside of work, I enjoy playing ultimate frisbee, hiking, and spending time with family and friends. I was a puppy raiser for the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind Inc. for seven years, and currently enjoy the company of my sweet yellow lab Mace.
Managing DirectorHi, I’m Michele and the managing director of AVH. I have been in the field of Veterinary medicine for 25 years. I love it so much that I decided to buy a practice! My passion is to create an environment for the staff and clients that is warm, compassionate and welcoming. We all love animals and practice the best quality medicine available, but here at AVH we pride ourselves on loving people as well. All people deserve to be treated with kindness and respect and you will always find that as the mantra at AVH. I was born in and currently live in Decatur, GA. with my husband Bart, children Owen and Livia, and my dog Luna B.
Practice ManagerHi, I’m Kim and the manager at AVH. I have been in the field of veterinary medicine for 18 years. I have always loved working with animals and their humans, whether it be helping with routine care, or being there to help them both get through an injury or sickness. I have a special skill set in calming stressed animals or fighting for those that need a little extra TLC (see my pet list below!). I especially love doing this job with my fellow teammates, and who are truly like my family. I was born in Birmingham, Ala. (War Eagle) and currently resides in Decatur, Ga. (on some land :)) with my menagerie of pets – my dogs: Lizzie, Benjamin, Boogie, Aiden and Eibhear Cats: Wink, Herbie, Neamin, Biscuits and Gravy. In my free time I love watching everything Auburn and cooking.
TechnicianHey! I’m Leona. I’ve been in the veterinary field for than 14 years. I have loved ALL animals since I was a very small girl. I have had many different pets throughout my life such as birds, turtles, ferrets and even rats – although, cats will forever be my favorite. I am passionate about my job as a technician and take pride in treating every single patient as if they were my own. I am exceptionally good at nursing sick pets throughout illness and find fulfillment in making them feel better. I live in Ellenwood, Ga. with my boyfriend Craig, son Julian, and cats Queso and Paula. During my free time I enjoying spending time with my family, painting, and photography.
ReceptionistHi, I’m Cat. I have been working in the field of veterinary medicine for many years. I have loved animals my whole life, even before I can remember. My first words were “the dog,” which made my parents a little jealous, but they did end up forgiving me! No one is ever surprised when they find out that I work in the veterinary medicine field, even though it’s not even close to what I went to school for. If you ask me, it’s what I was meant to do my whole life. I have a special skill set in chit-chat and client interaction. I truly care about your pet, but also about you and your day. I feel especially lucky to have a career where I can mix my love of pets with client care, but I really LOVE my AVH coworkers. They are truly my family. I live in Decatur Ga. with my two dogs, Kaylee & Sadie, and my two cats, Inara & Quinoa.
TechnicianHi, my name is Abby and I am a technician at AVH. I moved to Atlanta from Dayton, Ohio in August of 2017. I have been a veterinary technician for ten years. I have three cats of my own (Penne, Pinkman and Pearl). In my spare time, I love to lift heavy weights, talk about Beyonce/sing her songs, and listen to true crime podcasts. I am passionate about people, women’s rights, and finding the best fried pickles in Atlanta.
ReceptionistHello, my name is Jordan and I am a receptionist at AVH. I am excited to join the Avondale Veterinary Hospital team. This is my first experience working in the veterinary field, but so far, I’ve enjoyed every moment of it! It’s been inspiring to watch the staff at AVH provide the best care and concern for their patients. I’ve been a huge animal lover throughout my life and I find it very rewarding to learn about the healthcare and treatment of these amazing creatures. When I’m not answering the phone or helping clients at AVH, I enjoy playing music, writing and traveling.
