Meet The Team
Sales Representative for the Northeast Region with a sprinkle of customers all over the US. I take great pleasure in knowing the work we do for AHS helps our customers and animals around the world.
I enjoy living by the ocean in southeastern Massachusetts close to family and friends. Happiest when traveling, connecting with people, laughing, listening to live music, taking long walks, playing tennis, eating good food and drinking fine wine.
My fur baby best friends are Mia; a 16 year old Shitzu with an attitude and her sidekick Chole, a 16 year old English Lab lap baby.

In Rolan’s free time, he enjoys traveling, all things outdoors, health and fitness, and having lazy Sundays with his cat Louie.
I work for the accounting department at AHS. I live in East Tennessee with my husband and 2 daughters. My husband and I have been together since high school. I enjoy watching my daughters play softball and spending time with family. I have 2 dogs, a schnauzer named Ellie and a chocolate lab named Beans. In my down time, I like to hang out on the couch with my pups and crochet. I’m so glad to be at Animal Hospital Supply.
Yvonne works in the AHS accounting office. She fills orders, invoices customers, and performs other related office duties. She received her bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. For many years she worked as a journalist and later in PR as an editor/writer. Somehow, she swerved into accounting in 2015. She joined AHS in 2022.
Born and raised in Knoxville, she spent 13+ years in Utah, Nevada, and Oregon before finally coming back home to Tennessee. She has four children, four grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. She likes to knit, spin, read, and watch horror movies. Halloween is her favorite holiday.
Her other full-time job is a paralyzed dachshund named Magoo. He lost the use of his back legs in 2014. Luckily, he has wheels, but he still needs a lot of help.
Alexis, lives in Birmingham, AL and so excited to be apart of the Animal Hospital Supply Family as a Sales Representative. I have worked in Finance, Continuous Improvement, Production Planning, and as a Warehouse Supervisor for Steris for many years before coming aboard with AHS. I have a deep love and passion for animals and the safety of all patients. And strive everyday to make sure the professionals in the field doing procedures and helping animals have what they need to keep on helping.
Outside of work, Alexis loves spending time with her Husband, Son, Cat name Tom, and an 85lbs lap dog name Finn. Her home is consumed with ALL BOYS…that continuously keep her on her toes.
Jeff, a Virginia native with a sometimes unfortunate Arkansas accent, has split his 25 years in the hospital business nearly equally between device manufacturers and distribution. Jeff met Jack at DeRoyal Industries, a privately-held Knoxville medical and surgical products manufacturer. In 2000, he moved to Owens & Minor, the largest US hospital distributor, and in 2005 assumed responsibility for the company’s surgical product and services division. Jeff’s responsibilities were to reverse a declining margin trend for O&M through the sourcing of advancing technologies and niche manufacturers in the surgical space and also to develop a surgical supply chain model. On a personal note, Jeff recently relocated to Massachusetts, furthering the accent conundrum.

Veterinary surgery and critical care have too long been overlooked by medical products’ manufacturers. Their sole aim? The human space. Accordingly, many of the products in use at even the leading hospitals and vet schools are ‘so 80’s.’
That’s pretty much why we founded AHS. Eight years later, 1200+ customers got to know us as pioneers in companion animal patient warming. Now our surgery products are becoming the standard for the leading veterinary surgeons in the US. Our TPLO drape is used on more than 20,000 extremity surgeries annually and our Pet Procedure Packs have tightened the supply chain for over 300 surgeons and hospitals. If you’re still picking and pulling single/sterile supplies and opening 10-12 peel pouches to perform a case, please reach out to discuss your supply needs and we’ll get you some free pack samples to evaluate!
We have built AHS one customer at a time and are proud of our ability to keep our customers in ready product availability through the recent tribulations related to the pandemic. We’re now in excellent inventory position on nearly every product you’ll see here on the site and hope you’ll reach out if your current supplier(s) are unable to meet your needs. We appreciate the opportunity to work with you! All the best.
Animal Hospital Supply was established in 2012 in response to what the two founders felt was an industry need. Conversations with veterinary surgeons and criticalists in a number of leading referral hospitals revealed a general dissatisfaction with the tools available to deal with the challenge of maintaining or restoring normothermia in their companion animal surgical and critical care patients. One criticalist at a leading New York City specialty hospital told us, “We just don’t have the tools we need to keep our patients warm enough.”
These conversations led to ideas, which led to designs, leading to field tests, and finally resulting in new and innovative products, products uniquely designed for the needs of pets. With this initial foothold and the belief that other problems can be solved, a company was born—a company whose mission it is to provide innovative solutions to the challenges and needs of veterinary medicine.
