Dr. Kotagiri – “Dr. K”
Shannon Vera – Office Manager
Selena Perez – Lead Veterinary Technician
Emily Hernandez – Receptionist
Geovanna Campuzano-Gonzales – Veterinary Technician
Geovanna (or Gia, as we call her) joined our team in early 2012 and is totally committed to quality care for our pets. She is great at getting accurate and complete medical histories when new patients come in and assisting with the examinations and diagnostic procedures that take place in our exam rooms and treatment area. She is a very attentive and conscientious surgical assistant and anesthesia monitor. She performs excellent dental cleanings and polishing. She ensures that in-hospital treatments take place as prescribed while monitoring and documenting the progress of our hospitalized patients.
Gia is bi-lingual and therefore, very helpful to our Spanish-speaking pet owners. She will often stay with them throughout their visit to our hospital, from check-in through the doctor’s consultation and exam and check-out. She is also one of the helpful voices you will hear on the phone when you need information in Spanish.
Gia was married in April 2013 to Jacob. She is studying American Sign Language at Lone Star College-North Harris and is near completion of her Veterinary Technician education for veterinary technician certification. She is the owner of three German Shepherds, a Pit Bull Mix, and a French Bulldog. Of course, to keep them all in line she has her cat, Smigel, along with two Turtles, a Leopard Tortoise, a Bearded Dragon, and two Bunnies.
Linda Little – Veterinary Technician Assistant/Groomer
Linda has been working in the field of Veterinary Medicine for many years in various clinics and positions. She joined our team in 2009 and has since been learning technician skills as well as performing many other necessary functions that keep our practice running smoothly. She is the one who ensures that surgical packs are always clean, sterile, and ready for use. She ensures that all areas of the clinic are ready with the necessary supplies and equipment in place. She makes sure there are clean linens to make our patients comfortable during their stay. She also assists Dr. Ingram during exams, obtains patient histories and diagnostic samples, and prepares vaccines for administration.
Linda is an experienced groomer and does great hair cuts for our patients when requested. She takes a dirty, matted pet and transforms them into a clean, well-groomed one.
Linda is the mother of an adult son, Michael. She shares her home with Scruffy, her beloved dog, and three cats – Dipstick, Izzy, and her newest addition, Hootie.

She is new to the veterinary profession and is learning the many skills required to take the best care possible of our pets and is proving to be an able assistant to our doctor and her co-workers.

Christina is also bi-lingual and can assist our Spanish-speaking pet owners as needed.
