She obtained a B.S. degree in veterinary science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2004 and then attended veterinary school at Kansas State University, graduating in 2008.

Meet Our Customer Service
Gabby joined MCH’s team in August 2016, working part-time until graduating from NC State University in 2017 with a degree in Agriculture Business Management. She was immensely proud to accept a full-time position after graduation, working at a hospital with a team that genuinely cares for every single patient as if they were their own pet. She has loved animals from a young age and grew up participating in her local 4-H program. The program allowed her to experience being around both large and small animals, from chickens to horses and everything in between. When Gabby is not at MCH, she enjoys cooking, doing yoga, going to the beach, and spending time with her dog, cats, and horses.
Mike Joined MCH in October 2019 as a veterinary receptionist. He received a B.A. in History from Virginia Tech, naturally engendering a variety of careers in customer service. It wasn’t until Mike was in his thirties that he became an ailurophile, fostering cats until they found forever homes. When Mike isn’t trying to convince his wife that she is not allergic to cats, he enjoys reading, playing guitar, and attending live music and theater.
Meet Our Nursing Staff
She loves working with a team of people who care and do their best daily to provide our patients and clients with the best possible care. She loves getting to know the patients, some of whom she has known from kittens into their senior years, and our ongoing relationships with the clients. Even though the job is exhausting some weeks, she said there is no better feeling than helping a sick patient and then watching them go home once they are feeling better!
Megan B, RVT
Megan has been diligently taking notes and would like to publish a protocol for this very rare illness in cats. Megan’s professional goal is to obtain a VTS, veterinary technician specialty, in feline medicine. In her spare, Megan likes to spend time with her family, expand her houseplant collection, and research for her VTS certification. Megan is certified in BLS and ALS CPR techniques and has a special passion for anesthesia, pain management, and cytology.
Kaeleigh is passionate about ensuring clients feel comfortable with the treatment plans for their cats and enjoys demonstrating and teaching various techniques to provide cat owners with the confidence and skills they need to successfully medicate and care for their cats at home. When not working at the clinic, Kaeleigh enjoys frequenting the local movie theaters, playing video games, and snuggling with her own cats at home. Kaeleigh has two cats, Luke and Chewy, that she adopted from Morrisville Cat Hospital in 2012 when they were kittens.
