Morgan Marshall

Morgan Marshall

Kennel Technician

Morgan grew up with her parents, brother, and plenty of furry family members. She can’t remember a time when she didn’t have a pet around, and it wasn’t hard to develop a love for animal care early on in life. Now, she’s able to utilize her passion daily as a Kennel Technician!

During her senior year of high school, Morgan started her own club: Pet and Wildlife Support, or PAWS, and served as President. Her group worked to raise money and awareness for animals in need, and club members regularly volunteered at local animal shelters and other facilities. Morgan’s entrepreneurial spirit hasn’t wavered—she hopes to one day become a Licensed Veterinary Technician and go into business with her cousin, who is currently studying veterinary medicine in college.

Having previously worked for another local pet clinic, Morgan is excited to continue her veterinary journey as a member of the Lakeway Animal Medical and Surgical Clinic team. Around the hospital, she loves serving as an advocate for pets who can’t speak for themselves; she feels it’s her obligation to provide a caring and compassionate voice! Morgan also loves meeting new pets and their loving owners on a regular basis.

Outside of work, Morgan enjoys traveling, spending time with family and friends, and playing with her own pets at home. She lives with a handsome and loyal black Labrador, Secret, as well as three cats: Gossip gets her name from her penchant for constant meowing; Story was found by Morgan’s stepfather and has since become a loving and loyal member of the family, and Journey prefers acting more like a dog than a cat.

Kailee Surratt

Kailee Surratt

Receptionist

Thanks to her mother’s dog and cat allergies, Kailee grew up caring for other types of critters—she was no stranger to chickens, turkeys, and sugar gliders! Early on, she developed a passion for animal care that just wouldn’t quit. Kailee knew that a career in veterinary medicine was the only choice for her.

Kailee is a native of Houston and attended Texas A&M University to earn her degree in wildlife management. Following her internship with a conservation program at the Houston Zoo, she took a job at a family-owned moving and storage company. It wasn’t long before Kailee realized that something was missing: animals! She started volunteering with several wildlife rescue groups, then relocated to Willis and signed on with the Lake Conroe Veterinarians organization. Now, she’s a receptionist here at Lakeway Animal Medical and Surgical Clinic and couldn’t be happier!

Recently, Kailee joined a local wildlife rescue group called Friends of Texas Wildlife and got to help with injured or baby animals’ care needs on a regular basis. When she isn’t giving her time to the organization or caring for pets here at the hospital, Kailee enjoys spending time at home with her own pets. She lives with Butterball, a cat who seeks out belly rubs whenever possible, and a dog named Lilah who prefers soaking up the morning sun by the window.

Anne DeShetler

Anne DeShetler

Veterinary Technician

Anne has felt a special bond with animals ever since she was a young girl. By working as a Veterinary Technician, she’s able to spend time with the pets she loves so much while ultimately bettering the lives of animal owners and their companions!

Anne is originally from Colorado. She began college as an education major but started to consider animal care after hearing fascinating stories from her cousin, who was training to become a veterinarian. Anne eventually secured a job at the clinic where her cousin worked, and before long she was hooked—she decided to change her major to animal science and become a veterinary professional herself! Anne completed her animal science degree in Louisiana, then moved to Texas to expand her career as a Veterinary Technician.

Here at the hospital, Anne is particularly fond of critical-care work and seeing puppies and kittens grow and mature over the years. Most of all, she loves forming lasting relationships with the area’s pet owners and their beloved animal friends.

Outside of her interests in the veterinary world, Anne likes practicing building and landscape photography, spending time with her family, and enjoying the company of her feisty Border collie mix, Miles.

Veronica Aikman

Veronica Aikman

Kennel Technician

Since she was a little girl, Veronica has been interested in the veterinary profession. As soon as she could start taking animal science classes, she dived right in! Now she gets to work with pets every day as a Kennel Technician at Lakeway Animal Medical and Surgical Clinic.

During high school, Veronica discovered a program that would allow her to become a certified Veterinary Assistant before she even graduated. Of course, she jumped at the chance, learning all about biology, principles of agriculture, equine science, small animal management, and veterinary applications. In addition to her classroom studies, she completed 300 credit hours shadowing a veterinarian and received invaluable hands-on training.

Around the clinic, Veronica particularly likes jumping in to help out the doctors and technicians. Some of her favorite things to do include running urinalyses, bloodwork, and skin cytology tests. She also loves talking with clients and getting to hear stories about their personal relationships with their pets.

Like any animal lover, Veronica has a few pets of her own at home. Mayko is a sweet lab who loves napping and cuddling, and Jasmine the cat likes to spend hours playing fetch with hair ties.
