Support Staff

Amanda - Amanda is the Practice Manager at Anchorage Animal Hospital. She began her career in veterinary medicine in 1990 with Dr. Gaines at Breckenridge Animal Hospital. Amanda began working at Breckenridge as a part time evening assistant. One month later, she was working as a full-time receptionist/technician with 2 other full-time employees.

As the practice grew from the original staff of 3, there was a need for a dedicated office manager and as the practice continued to grow, she was promoted to Practice Manager. When Dr. Gaines’ vision of an east end practice became a reality in 2001, she was assigned her current position at Anchorage.

When she’s not busy juggling the management of 2 animal hospitals, she enjoys traveling, needle crafts, gardening and University of Tennessee football. She is also a huge technology nerd. She shares her home with a Jack Russell Terrier, “Wilson” and a recently adopted cat "Bacon" and “Sky” a Spotted Saddle Horse.


Lori - Lori has worked as a receptionist at Breckenridge Animal Hospital since 1995. She joined the AAH team in February 2020. 

Lori and her husband Steve share their home with Bella a Sheltie. She is an active member of Southeast Christian Church and works there on the weekends. In her spare time she volunteers with Mini’s from Heaven, a non-profit organization using miniature horses visiting seniors in nursing homes. She also enjoys cross-stitching and reading.

Pickle - Pickle, our office mascot/CEO, joined our team in 2005. At the time he was almost 2 years old, unsure of his surroundings, a little scared and definitely not afraid to show it. After months of love, kisses, belly rubs and cat nip he became much more comfortable and hasn't looked back. As a vital member of our team Pickle oversees the daily activities and isn't afraid to voice his opinion with a hearty meow. In his spare time Pickle enjoys playing with his toys, rolling around in cat nip, stalking birds through the window and eating. He is currently single and has no plans to start a family (he's neutered), but he enjoys being a surrogate father to cats and kittens up for adoption in the clinic.
