Erica began her career in human medicine, but quickly realized that she wanted a change. When she thought back to what had always brought her great joy, the choice was obvious: why not use her passion for healthcare to better the lives of animals? That’s when Erica took the leap into veterinary medicine—she hasn’t looked back since!

Erica is a Charlestown native and serves the area’s pets and animal owners as a receptionist with the Animal Hospital of Lanesville team. One of her favorite parts of her job is doting on the clinic’s visiting puppies—she often feels like a proud parent while watching young dogs grow up over the years!

Aside from her interests in animal care, Erica is an avid reader—J.K. Rowling, Sarah Maas, and Cressida Cowell are a few of her favorite authors—and also enjoys cooking and crocheting. She, her husband and daughter share their life with five cats and two dogs, all of whom have names that start with the letter N: Nakita, Neville, Nacho, Negan, Nitro, Nixon, and Nora.
Veterinary Technician
Megan grew up on a farm in Borden, Indiana, where she was surrounded by animals from her earliest days. By the time she was showing pigs and horses as a member of the 4-H program, she knew that she would love to work with the earth’s creatures professionally. Megan’s dream never wavered! Now, she’s proud to help animals daily as a Veterinary Technician.

Megan attended Harrison College in Indianapolis, where she earned her degree in veterinary technology in the spring of 2017. She was hired on at another nearby animal hospital immediately after graduation, then joined the team here at the Animal Hospital of Lanesville on the recommendation of the clinic’s very own Alicia. Megan has been a member of the hospital family since January of 2018.

Medically, Megan enjoys assisting with surgeries and learning more about the various surgical techniques available to veterinarians. Most of all, she loves getting to spend her workdays around animals and fellow pet-lovers just like herself!

Megan’s interests outside of veterinary medicine include horseback riding—she even shows in barrel racing and western pleasure—and hunting and fishing in the great outdoors. She has one dog of her own, Chalupa, a tiny Chihuahua/Dachshund mix who love sleeping under the covers and playing with her squeaky toys. Megan also owns three horses: Comet, who enjoys donuts and Twizzlers and has a special fondness for ear scratches; Ruby, whose favorite food is Cheez-Its; and Redneck, who follows Megan everywhere she goes.
Veterinary Technician
Melissa was only a little girl when she decided that she would one day work hands-on with animals. The veterinary field has always called to her, and she knew she wouldn’t be satisfied doing anything else. That’s why Melissa became a Veterinary Technician! She’s a proud member of the Animal Hospital of Lanesville family .

Melissa is originally from New York, and volunteered at a local animal shelter during her high school years. She studied veterinary medicine for a time before moving to Kentucky in 2009, where she went back to school to study phlebotomy at Spencerian College. Next, Melissa landed a job at a veterinary clinic in Corydon, gaining invaluable skills that serve her well to this day. She moved to Indiana in 2011, and joined the Animal Hospital of Lanesville team in December of 2019. Melissa particularly likes performing blood draws and helping with surgical procedures, but her favorite part of her job is getting to meet new pet owners and their adorable companions every day.

When she’s not at work, Megan likes spending time with family and friends, gardening, enjoying outdoor activities like four-wheeling and kayaking, and doting on her own pets at home. She and her husband have two young girls, and the family shares their lives with multiple animal companions. They have five cats and two outdoor strays that they care for, as well as three loveable dogs: Cooper the Beagle who is getting grumpier with old age; a Miniature Dachshund named Sophie; and a puppy named Tillie, adopted from the Fayette County Humane Society.
