Lynn CaylorVeterinary Assistant
Lynn is Westwood's most avid cat lover. In her years at Westwood we have lost count of the number of cats she has had as pets. Many now live with her father, who is also a cat lover. Lynn graduated from Daleville High School.
Lynn and her husband have one son and two beautiful cats. Her smiling face can usually be found at the front desk, helping our clients or in the back, loving on the cats who are staying with us. Lynn stays busy at Westwood, with her family and her church, but finds time to enjoy watching baseball. She loves the Atlanta Braves and the Montgomery Biscuits.
Jessica WardVeterinary Assistant
Jessica has lived in Dothan since she was six years old and is a graduate of Rehobeth High School. She has some nursing training, and is going to school to pursue that field.
We are not sure which Jessica loves more - animals or people. She has two dogs and a cat and spends almost every day taking care of the patients at Westwood, but she says she also enjoys spending time with her human friends. She says her interests outside of work are reading and watching movies and she always tries to involve her wide circle of friends. Her easy going personality is an asset at Westwood with our patients and their people.
Kaitlin HermanVeterinary Assistant
Kaitlin joined the Westwood staff in July 2015. She is a Dothan Native who is doing pre-vet studies locally and plans to transfer to Auburn to pursue her DVM degree. Kaitlin has a number of animals both large and small, but says she is most involved with her dog Ava.
While her primary responsibilities are as kennel assistant, she can often be seen assisting with appointments and treatments and occasionally surgery. Westwood folks can look forward to getting to know Kaitlin until she moves to Auburn. We are not sure when that will be, but it will be our loss and Auburn's gain.
Elizabeth HornVeterinary Assistant
When you meet Elizabeth Horn she will almost certainly be smiling. She loves her job and it shows. Elizabeth has been a great addition to the staff and goes about her job cheerfully and efficiently.
She says that her and husband Brian's hobby is supporting their kids in the school athletics and activities. And thankfully, she still has time to assist at Westwood. Elizabeth graduated from Dothan High School. She has a dog named Buddy and a cat, Smokey. She is planning to go back to school in either veterinary or human medicine. We bet she will be a success at whichever she chooses.
