Meet Our Office
Karen, Office Manager, is our go-to person for everything, she is the official mom for all of us and our clients! She's particularly fond of helping several of our elderly pet owners by picking up and delivering pets and supplies and is so well known that her husband won't go to HEB with her because she is frequently stopped to chat or give pet advice. She has worked for NBVC since 1989 when it was just her and Dr. Grantham handling all the duties of the clinic. When not running our clinic she is busy with her three children & husband Mark (whom she met when she first started working at a vet clinic in her hometown). Her favorite hobbies are going to see movies and hunting for jewelry bargains.
Lauren, our IT Manager first began working for NBVC in June of 2000 at our old facility on Seguin Street. She came back to the clinic in 2009 and has been with us since . Lauren settled down in New Braunfels with her husband and they have two children in addition to their various pets. Lauren loves camping in their vintage camper and driving her husband crazy with their next Pinterest project.
