Our Careteam

Ashley Stapleton
Veterinary Technician
Since 2010, Ashley has dedicated herself to caring for the patients of Pipe Creek Animal Clinic. She loves getting to know each pet’s different personalities, catering to their unique needs, and making each experience at the clinic as stress-free as possible. She grew up in San Angelo, TX and after spending time in the Texas Army National Guard as a mechanic, she decided to pursue her passion of helping pets and their owners as a veterinary technician. She enjoys the dynamic atmosphere of veterinary medicine, each day bringing unexpected challenges and experiences that allow her to further develop her skills and renew her love for her job. After a fulfilling week at work, she enjoys reading books that allow her to explore alternate realities, spending time outdoors with her daughter Jessie, binge watching Netflix or volunteering with the Medina Lake Fire Department.
Sherry
Veterinary Technician
Personal Motto: “Do what you say, and say what you do”

Sherry McLeod is a legacy at Pipe Creek Animal Clinic having served the clients and patients of our community for the last 17 years! On a daily basis as a surgery tech, she ensures that each patient undergoing surgery at Pipe Creek Animal Clinic receives exceptional care under her experienced watchful eye, guaranteeing their comfort at every step. Knowing she can help make our patients feel better, keeps her coming to work each day to make a difference in their lives. She is a dog lover and currently has two rescue pups, Vixen a Belgian Malinois and Squirrel a Shih Tzu mix, and a naughty cat, Skunk. She spent her childhood as a military brat living all over the US including Hawaii and even Panama and can tell you wild tales about interacting with the numerous native Panamanian fauna such as iguanas and coatimundis as a kid. She also spent many years with search and rescue, having trained and certified her own cadaver search dog. Nowadays, you can find her on the weekends volunteering in her community and riding with her motorcycle club for worthy causes such as the San Antonio Battered Women Shelter, Wreath Across America and Medina Children’s Home.
Cheyenne
Veterinary Practice Manager
Motto “Sorry, not Sorry”

Cheyenne wears many hats at Pipe Creek Animal Clinic, but her main forte is helping the clinic run smoothly and providing superior care to our clients and patients. She is a jack of all trades that came to our clinic via Wisconsin and Arizona, and joining the clinic in 2016, has brought joy and compassion to each interaction, with staff, with patients, and with clients. Being there for our patients, helping them feel better, and comforting them when they need it most “makes her heart happy.” Cheyenne has an uncanny knack for making pets so excited they pee by just speaking to them, unfortunate for those of us holding those pets! She is constantly training and bettering her skills in order to keep her an animal care expert, learning from each pet, and helping them through their fears and discomforts. She is a certified equine sports massage therapist and can help ease your horses’ aches and pains with her talented hands. In her spare time, she rides her horses, competes in barrel racing, works on her ranch with her fiancé Chase, hikes and swims with her German Shepherds, Tripp and Recon, her Mini Aussie, Paislee and her chiweenie, Buckle.
Kim
Client Service Representative
Kim has been the friendly voice you hear answering the phones at Pipe Creek Animal Clinic for the last 10 years. Kim grew up in Milwaukee, WI and even though she has lived in Pipe Creek for the last 18 years, you can still occasionally hear her Wisconsin accent slip out. According to Kim, nothing beats a puppy kiss or head butt from a cat wanting some love. When she can slip away from the desk and ringing phone, you can find her in the treatment area loving on the animals under our care.

Working for the clinic for a decade, she says the clients are more like family than customers and helping their babies makes her job with Pipe Creek Animal Clinic fulfilling. Her and her husband Bruce have a full house with 2 dogs, 2 cats, 4 horses and 7 birds. Nigel, a cockatoo who came to Kim after his owner passed away, visits the clinic occasionally and entertains the lobby with his antics and squawks. When not at home with her critters or taking exceptional care of our clients, Kim enjoys visiting the marine animals at Sea World or lounging by the pool.
Sara
Front Desk Manager
Personal Motto: “This too shall pass”

Since 2017, Sara has taken care of the clients and patients that visit Pipe Creek Animal clinic as our head Client Service Representative and Front Desk Manager. Sara is a native of Pipe Creek, TX and still lives on her family ranch, where she raises goats and cattle with her husband and best friend Paul. Sara graduated from Bandera High School, attended Northwest Vista earning her Associates degree in Applied Science and continuing her education at Schriener University in Kerrville completing her Bachelor of Science in Biology. She intended to continue on to veterinary school, but life had other plans. She is supremely talented at putting our clients at ease and helping to ensure that their needs are met, always having a personal anecdote to comfort clients and solicit a smile, usually when it is needed the most. You would never know that she was extremely shy in her younger years, because nowadays, she will share a laugh with everyone who visits Pipe Creek Animal Clinic. Even though she has 4 Catahoulas, 1 cat, 1 horse, goats and cattle, her favorite animal is the cheeky racoon! She works hard every day at Pipe Creek Animal Clinic caring for our clients and patients and then goes home to care for her critters, enjoying her ranch, and relaxing with her family and friends. She is a talented cook and strives each day to remain inspired and leave her footprints on this earth. I know that many of our clients and patients can vouch that she makes a lasting positive impression on those people who cross her path. We are lucky to have her represent our clinic!

She takes great pride in her job with Pipe Creek Animal Clinic and excels at adding that personal touch to each appointment, welcoming each client and patient with a smile and warm greeting. She ensures each pet’s stay with us is comfortable, whether they are in the hospital for treatment or boarded while away from their families. Each day at the clinic gives her the opportunity to meet new clients and their pets and celebrate their uniqueness. On her off time, she visits her 96-year-old mother and sisters who live nearby, or exercises her green thumb working in her yard and around the house. Mary has acquired many rescue dogs and cats over the years, providing each and every one of them the forever loving home they deserve. Her favorite animal though is the regal eagle.
Mandy
Client Service Representative
Mandy is the newest addition to Pipe Creek Animal Clinic’s warm and welcoming front desk staff joining the clinic in 2019. Mandy shows up early and eager to help our client’s get the exceptional care and service they deserve. Mandy recently moved to Pipe Creek from Corpus Christi and became familiar with our clinic as a client bringing in her many wayward rescue dogs she and her family fosters and cares for until they can find permanent homes. When she had the opportunity to sit on the other side of the desk and become part of our Pipe Creek Animal Clinic family, she jumped at the chance! When you call the clinic to make your appointment and Mandy answers the phone, you will be sure to smile when she shares her infectious joy and engaging personality.
Justina Pier
Kennel Technician
Justina continues her long-standing dedication to the clients and patients of Pipe Creek Animal Clinic as one of our animal caregivers in the boarding kennels. She ensures all pets boarded at our clinic get personalized attention and love every day. Justina has been around long enough to see some of our patient’s grow from puppies to seniors through the years and feels strongly that each pet in her care should be treated like family. She attends to each pet as if they were her own and makes their stay away from their family as comfortable as possible. Rest assured that when your leave your pet in boarding at PCAC, Justina will ensure they get the best care possible!

Shannon
Kennel Technician
Shannon started working with our Pipe Creek Animal Clinic family attending to the kennel area and boarding pets in April 2019. She is learned the ropes quickly and always treats our clients and pets with the utmost respect and compassion. She enjoys working with the dogs, giving them extra attention and care, playing fetch with them in the turn out yard and learning the personalities of each of our boarders while they stay awhile. In her spare time, she is active in the community and helps with meals on wheels delivering food to the seniors and home-bound citizens of our community. She shares her home with her husband a quartet of rambunctious mini Aussies (Rowan, Piper, Bitty and Blue) that keep her on her toes! But wait…she has a secret you can’t tell her canine companions…cats also qualify for one of her favorite animals. When you see her ask her how her newest furry addition, a gregarious kitten named Hobbs, is entertaining her crew! (Hobbs is the very handsome brother to our clinic cat Leeloo!!)
