Our Careteam

Avery
Veterinary Technician
Avery used to work at a doggie daycare, and loved to spend his time bettering the lives of customers’ four-legged friends. It wasn’t long before he realized that he wanted to learn even more about the care of our furry companions—when the opportunity arose for Avery to join the Clearview Veterinary Hospital team, he jumped at his chance!

Avery grew up in Marrero, Louisiana before moving to Lafayette for high school, and then attended Delgado Community College to earn a degree in computer electronics and service technology. After his time at the doggie daycare facility, Avery decided to take a leap of faith and enter the veterinary world to expand his knowledge and skillset—that’s when he joined the Clearview Veterinary Hospital family! He’s been a part of the team since March of 2018.

Outside of work, Avery enjoys attending Broadway plays, decorating for Christmas, catching his favorite movies and television shows, and spending time with his family and pets. He has two sibling rat terriers who live back in Lafayette with his mother, and their favorite pastimes are sleeping and eating.
Kayla
Veterinary Technician
Ever since she can remember, Kayla has wanted to serve in the healthcare world to help improve the lives of others. Plus, she grew up around pets and always felt a pull toward the field of veterinary medicine. Kayla decided to look for employment in a vet’s office, and it was one of the best decisions she’s ever made! She’s a proud member of Clearview Veterinary Hospital’s Veterinary Technician team.

Kayla was born and raised in the Kenner and Metairie area, and first joined the Clearview Veterinary Hospital family team in the summer of 2016 after graduating from college. She started by working in the kennel, cleaning cages and walking the clinic’s boarding dogs, until an opportunity arose for her to move into a Technician position. Kayla was trained on the job, and continues to learn new things on a daily basis! She’s particularly fond of ultrasound work, assisting in surgeries, and drawing blood for sampling in the lab.

When she isn’t caring for the area’s pets here at the hospital, Kayla can be found practicing her baking skills, singing—she’s been singing since she was nine years old, and was even accepted into the Louisiana Baptist All-State Youth Choir!—and spending time with her pets at home. She has one dog and three cats of her own: Oliver, a quirky and loyal Jack Russell Terrier mix; an attention-seeking grey cat named Quincy; Donovan, a white-and-grey cat that likes to drown his stuffed toys in the water bowl; and a skittish Tuxedo who goes by Sylvester.
Breane
Veterinary Technician
Breane has always wanted to spend her days helping others, and she’s adored animals ever since her earliest memories. For her, getting to help pets and their owners live better lives as a member of the veterinary profession isn’t just a job—it’s what she truly loves to do! Breane is a proud member of Clearview Veterinary Hospital’s Veterinary Technician team.

Originally from Metairie, Breane began her college career in the human nursing field and also studied business, graduating from Delgado Community College with her degree in business administration. After working in a few marketing positions, she decided to follow what she was truly passionate about: animal care. That’s when Breane joined the veterinary profession, and she hasn’t looked back since.

Breane became a member of the Clearview Veterinary Hospital team in March of 2018, and has been serving the area’s pets and animal parents ever since. Medically, she’s fond of blood draws, but her favorite part of the job is getting to cuddle with all of the clinic’s adorable boarding pets.

In her time away from work, Breane likes spending time outdoors, swimming, trying new restaurants, listening to music, and spending time with dog, Stoli. Stoli loves swimming just as much as his mother, and his favorite pastime is playing fetch with pinecones!
Nikkie
Veterinary Technician
Nikkie loves many things about the veterinary profession: problem solving, teamwork, continual learning opportunities, science and medicine… the list goes on and on. One thing is at the heart of her passion, though: pets, as well as the loving owners who care for them. Nikkie makes it her mission every day to better the lives of animal owners and their companions as Clearview Veterinary Hospital’s lead Veterinary Technician!

Nikkie is from Metairie, and first launched her animal-care career at a dude ranch in Tennessee before returning to Louisiana. She first heard about an open position here at Clearview Veterinary Hospital from her husband—the clinic’s very own Matt!—and was hired on as a relief worker after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Nikkie has been a member of the hospital family ever since; now, she’s Head Veterinary Technician!

Around the hospital, Nikkie enjoys surgical work, dental procedures, and helping nervous or anxious patients to feel more comfortable. Her favorite part of every shift is the comradery she feels with her team—for Nikkie, nothing beats getting to work around a group of compassionate animal lovers just like herself on a daily basis.

Nikkie’s interests outside of work include reading, drawing, writing, going on cruises, snorkeling—she’ll soon be SCUBA certified!—and spending quality time with her family. She and Matt have a son, Jacob.
Roxane

Roxane is from Lafitte and first joined the Clearview Veterinary Hospital family in August of 2015. She’s been helping animal owners and their beloved companions ever since!

Linda
Veterinary Assistant
Linda grew up in New York, and spent summers riding calves and churning real butter on her grandmother’s farm. She’s been enjoying the company of animals ever since she was a little girl! For her, helping to keep pets healthy by working in the veterinary field simply made sense. Linda is a Veterinary Technician Assistant here at Clearview Veterinary Hospital.

After retiring from her career as a cardiac sonographer, Linda started working at another local animal care facility on a part-time basis. That’s where she first met Dr. Bennett—when Linda was invited to come help the doctor with a cardiac ultrasound procedure here at Clearview Veterinary Hospital, she decided to ask for a job! The rest is history, and Linda has been helping to care for the area’s pets and animal parents as a member of the clinic family since early 2018.

Outside of work, Linda is actively involved in competitive dog sports—she holds many trophies in agility and herding—and also teaches training and herding tactics. She shares her life with a menagerie of pets: four dogs, three cats, several birds, tropical fish, sheep, and a horse!
Nikki
Kennel Technician
Nikki’s connection with animals was palpable at a young age. She would constantly bring home stray pets she had found on the street, and her mother liked to joke that young Nikki preferred the company of animals to the other children in the neighborhood! As fate would have it, she would end up working hands-on with the earth’s creatures—Nikki is a proud member of the hospital’s kennel staff.

A Metairie native, Nikki wanted to rejoin the workforce after being a stay-at-home mother for six months. When she came across an advertisement for an opening here at the clinic, she knew that she had found her chance! Nikki is a Kennel Technician and loves to meet different animals and owners every day, and she also likes learning new things on a daily basis.

In her time away from work, Nikki likes practicing her photography skills—she even does photoshoots for families in her spare time!—and spending time at home with her fiancé, Ryan, and her two young sons. Matthew is three and will talk to anyone and everyone, and baby Zachary is already shaping up to be a momma’s boy. Koda the dog rounds out the family, and enjoys trying to sit on her parents’ laps despite her giant size.

She loves to visit her parents in Slidell on a weekly basis, and also enjoys getting together with her brother and sister for dinner.

Kayle

Kayle grew up in a small southern Louisiana town, where she spent time around animals of all shapes and sizes. She suspects that those early experiences with the earth’s creatures made a permanent impression—Kayle knew that she would love to help pets professionally as a member of the veterinary world! She’s able to do just that here at Clearview Veterinary Hospital.

When the time came for Kayle to search for a new job opportunity, she knew that she wanted to do something rewarding and enjoyable while making a lasting difference at the same time. She jumped at the chance to become a member of the Clearview Veterinary Hospital family! Kayle joined the team in early 2019, and serves as a Kennel Technician and front-desk receptionist.
