Pet Care Team

Hailey, Technician Assistant

I was born and raised in Wisconsin. I left there at age 20 when I married an infantryman for the U.S. Army and we moved to Ft. Bliss in El Paso, Texas. After 2 years in Texas we moved to Zanesville, OH and were there for 3 years before moving to Morrisville. I grew up with all sorts of animals, and I always had the duties of taking care of the family pets. Personally I think animals make better patients than most people!

I volunteered with Saving Grace before coming to work at Falconbridge. I earned my Pet CPR and First Aide Certification and am planning to continue my education to become a Registered Veterinary Technician. Taking care of the pets that are here for boarding and day care is very rewarding for me. I also help the techs and doctors with their patients. We vet assistants are the driving force behind keeping Falconbridge Animal Hospital running smoothly!

My husband and I have a 4 year old male English Bulldog named Dana. We like to explore and find new and interesting places to visit, and constantly take Dana with us on hikes. I also enjoy cooking and baking, hiking, exploring, and boating. Anything that gets me out in the sun is fun for me!

 

Juan Cardona, Pet Care Attendant

Born and raised in Connecticut, I move to the Triangle area 3 years ago to find myself and spread my wings.

I've done a variety of jobs from construction to working here at Falconbridge.  Growing up I wasn't the typical boy who burned ants with a magnifying glass.  I have always appreciated life, in all its forms, but especially animals.

I have 3 dogs, 2 chihuahuas names Bagel and Pencha, and a Jack Russel Terrier named Ike that I adopted after the passing of our groomer, Pinky.  I enjoy reading, creating art, playing computer games, martial arts, and just overall relaxing in my free time.

 

Devon Dickerson, Pet Care Attendant

I was born in Alaska, raised in Texas, and moved outside of Durham about 8 years ago.

For as long as I can remember I have always had a passion for animals.  With my mother being a Registered Veterinary Technician, she fueled my passion even more.

I have a cat named Beans, and in my free time I love to run, play guitar and video games, read, and listen to podcasts.

 

Logan, Pet Care Attendant

I was born in Michigan, but raised in Trenton, NJ, by New Yorker parents.

I suppose the one passion I've had in life is animals, specifically dogs.  They're kind of like an infinite stream of happiness that never ends, so helping them out in any way I can is what I enjoy doing.  I worked with dogs at a kennel for 3 years, and wanted to learn more about them from a medical standpoint and to further my experience.  Falconbridge is a great place for that!  Here I feed the pets, clean their spaces, wash their dishes and make sure the place is both nice looking and safe for them.  I also assist any fellow team members with anything they might need help with.

I have three brothers.

 

Stephan Taylor, Groomer

Born and raised, I'm a Chapel Hill native!

Being a groomer for almost 10 years, I've always had a heart for animals.  Growing up all of my free time was spent on my grandparents' farm, helping with the animals.

I have 2 dogs, Pennie and Jean.  In my free time I love riding horses and traveling as much as I can.
