Melissa Mayes
Certified Veterinary Assistant

A native of Tuscola, TX, Melissa is certified veterinary assistant. She says the best parts of her job are working with a close-knit team of animal-lovers and restoring sick or wounded animals to good health. Melissa always wanted to work in a vet clinic and loved pretending to be a dog when she was a kid! When she’s not at the veterinary clinic, Melissa loves running and spending time with her fiancé and her two dogs.

Haley Phillips

Born and raised in Abilene, TX, Haley loves the sense of “family” she’s experienced as part of the team at Brookhollow Animal Clinic. She enjoys greeting different types of dogs and getting to know clients and their pets. Haley says it’s great seeing pets who love visiting the vet clinic, which is uncommon for lots of animals. When Haley isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her family and two dogs.
On June 27th 2019 we added on our sweet little addition, Mason Walter Phillips, 5lbs 13oz 19 inches. We are so blessed by Gods perfect creation and love him dearly.
