Hospital Manager


Tara joined AMCC in 2017 as our Hospital Manager. Prior to joining AMCC, Tara has developed quite the extensive experience from a variety of roles within the veterinary profession. In addition to her professional management training, she also has unique training in exotic animal care. At home, she lives with her Shih-poo Bash, her Irish Wolfhound Archer, and her grumpy cat Sebastian. If you come to visit us at AMCC, Archer is hard to miss! Tara is the leader of our team and she exemplifies the mantra of our hospital, “treat everyone’s pets as if they were your own”.


Licensed Veterinary Technicians


Chelsey joined the AMCC team in 2012, but has been in the veterinary medicine field since 1997. Chelsey studied biology at both VCU and the University of Kentucky, before completing her Associate Degree of Veterinary Technology from Blue Ridge Community College in 2014. Chelsey is the proud pet parent to her 2 dogs (Boo and Bubba), her cat (Luna), her ball python snake (Sly) and her leopard gecko (Gieco). As a Licensed Veterinary Technician in the state of Virginia, she excels in all areas of veterinary medicine, but her top interests include dentistry, surgery and client education. In her own words, AMCC is a great veterinary hospital because it “feels like home”.



Kourtney is originally from Pennsylvania, but relocated to the tidewater area with her husband, who we are proud to have serving as a member of the United States Air Force. Kourtney is the proud pet parent to a 24-year old Morgan/Quarter Horse cross named Levi and an energetic corgi-mix named Reagan.

Prior to her LVT studies, she obtained a B.S. in Biology, with a minor in Equestrian Studies. Outside of work, Kourtney is often found riding her horse, exploring the trails. If you’ve ever interacted with Kourtney while at AMCC, you will quickly realize she treats all of our patients like family, striving to always provide the best possible care.
