Helen Davis


Helen always had pets in her life from a very early age: a cat and a dog and even white rats. She was an avid horsewoman – owning her first horse at age 13. Her dream job was to work in a veterinary clinic to be around as many animals as possible.

Helen actually started at the old Quintard Veterinary Hospital (now Animal Medical Center) ~ 28 years ago and with the guidance of Dr. Nicholls, Dr. Hillman and Dr. LeCoq, she was trained to help in every part of the clinic. She taught herself to groom animals starting (again) at the age of 13 when she got her first set of clippers. She practiced her grooming on everything from her miniature poodle to her horses.

Helen currently has 2 dogs; Eclipse (standard Poodle), Willow (Chihuahua), 6 cats: Socks; Jerry, Chrystal, Kitty, Sinnat and Kalie, 3 horses: Ally, Strawberry and Montana, a flying squirrel: Zippy and 3 Koi fish.

Helen and her husband Michael have 3 beautiful daughters: Amanda, Amy and Ashley and six wonderful grandchildren.

In her off-time, Helen enjoys horseback riding, crafting, working in her flower garden and just enjoying life as much as possible.

Good-hearted Kristin often volunteers to help with orphaned baby birds.
