About Cheryl

Experienced Veterinary Technician, Certified Veterinary Paramedic, and Dog Trainer


Since I was young I’ve loved animals — both learning about and taking care of them. I founded Animal Companions in 2003 to share my love of animals with my clients and pet owners all over the Houston area.

I am an experienced Veterinary Technician, Certified Veterinary Paramedic, and Dog Trainer. From 2003-2007, my husband and I volunteered for Houston Area Doberman Rescue as a foster home. I was a Veterinary Technician for 9 years: 2 years at PetVet and 7 years at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists (GCVS). During this time I worked mostly with dogs and cats, but occasionally assisted with handling ferrets, parrots, rabbits, iguanas and snakes. While working toward my Veterinary Paramedic certification, I volunteered in the avian section at the Houston Zoo, assisted at Citizens for Animal Protection, and worked with horses at the Stevens and Pruitt Ranch. As a professional Dog Trainer, I trained boarding dogs and assisted teaching basic Obedience classes. I have trained my own dogs in Obedience, Agility, and Tracking. I have had various pets: parakeets, cockatiels, finches, turtles, hamsters, rats, hermit crabs, goldfish, cichlid tropical fish, guppies, anole lizards, frogs, a horse, and many dogs and cats.

I pride myself on the high-standard of care and services that I offer. I have a number of clients who have become more like family, and customers who consider me to be an integral member of their family. I hope I get the chance to meet your lovely pet soon.
