Hailee

Certified Veterinary Assistant

Growing up in the Venice and Englewood, Florida area, Hailee has always loved being close to the Gulf of Mexico and Florida’s native wildlife. During middle school, Hailee became very interested in animals and different species. Hailee began volunteering with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC); it was there that she assisted with tagging of juvenile tarpons in the Gulf of Mexico. Haile also volunteered with the Lemon Bay Conservancy as a Student Guide Naturalist, helping clear Duckweed from ponds within the Lemon Creek Wildflower Preserve. During high school, Hailee’s focus was on marine biology and animal sciences courses. While in college, she worked with cats at a local animal shelter. Hailee graduated from Southern Technical College’s Veterinary Assistant program, passed the certification examination and officially became a Certified Veterinary Assistant in 2021. Hailee became a valued team member at West Villages Animal Clinic in January 2022.

Hailee has two cats, named Nala (pictured on the right), and Colette (on the left). Nala is four years old, very sweet, and prefers being held like a baby. Colette, is about one year old, was fostered and adopted during Hailee’s employment at the animal shelter. Both girls are ‘chatty’, are attached at the hip, and even though they look very similar, they are not siblings! Hailee plans to add a dog to her fur family in the future.

Besides working with animals, Hailee’s happy place is at the beach. Her other interests include playing the saxophone and clarinet, both which she has been playing for over a decade. She loves attending concerts, spending time with her friends and taking in new soulful experiences.

Hailee strives to give every patient of West Villages Animal Clinic the same care and comfort she would provide her own pets.
