Ashleigh Boyer

Office Manager

After her childhood cat had an unfortunate run-in with a raccoon, Ashleigh spent months tending to her beloved pet’s every need. Thanks to her compassionate care, the cat made a full recovery! The experience left a permanent impression—Ashleigh knew that she would love to help animals professionally. Now, she’s proud to serve the area’s pets and animal parents as Lakewood Animal Clinic’s Office Manager.

Ashleigh is a Jacksonville native and has been volunteering at local pet stores, equestrian centers, and kennels ever since she was old enough to hold a job. When a friend told her about an open position here at Lakewood Animal Clinic, she didn’t hesitate! Ashleigh joined the hospital family in June of 2016, and especially likes to keep things organized through proper inventory management and medication supply. She loves knowing that her behind-the-scenes work makes a lasting impact for the area’s pets.

In her time away from the clinic, Ashleigh likes spending quality time with her young sister and enjoying the company of her own pets. She has two dogs—Princess, a German shepherd mix, and a rescued mutt named Puppup—who love accompanying Ashleigh to nature trails, the park, and the beach whenever the opportunity allows.

Tammy

Veterinary Technician

Ever since she was a little girl, Tammy has acted as the caregiver for her family pets. More recently, when her son’s tortoise got into an ill-fated altercation with the family dog, she took on the responsibilities of nursing the turtle back to full health. That sparked something in Tammy that hasn’t quit since—she knew that a career in veterinary medicine would prove rewarding and exciting! She’s a Veterinary Technician with the Lakewood Animal Clinic team.

Tammy is originally from Michigan and started her veterinary journey with the Lakewood Animal Clinic family in April of 2013. She was actually a client before she became an employee—when Tammy first saw an advertisement for an opening here at the clinic, she jumped at the chance! Tammy loves to form bonds with her patients and their loving owners, and her absolute favorite part of the job is getting to see a sick pet feel better after the team’s hard work pays off.

At home, Tammy lives with her two wonderful sons, Jake and Brandon, as well as four dogs who go by Chica, Massimo, Matteo, and Torey.

Mindy Hernandez

Receptionist

Whenever she was asked as a child what she wanted to be when she grew up, Mindy had her answer ready: being a veterinarian is all she’s wanted to do since she was a little girl! For Mindy, a career in veterinary medicine allows her to do something meaningful on a daily basis while spending time around the animals that she loves so much.

Mindy is a Miami native, and moved to Jacksonville in 2016 before joining the Lakewood Animal Clinic family in October of that year. She’s currently studying veterinary medicine in college, and is thrilled to supplement her studies with real-world experience here at the hospital! Ultimately, she hopes to attend veterinary school in the future to earn her Doctorate and become a veterinarian herself.

Mindy and her roommates live with two pets who can’t leave each other’s side: a spunky Chihuahua, Taco, and an adorable kitten who goes by Mittens. When she isn’t enjoying her own pets’ company or tending to the needs of Jacksonville’s animal companions here at the hospital, Mindy likes going to the beach and shopping.
