Anissa was born in Georgia, but has travelled around quite a bit in her young life having lived in Washington, Missouri, Hawaii, Arkansas and now Alabama. She is the mother of a two-year-old boy and most of her family lives here in Baldwin County now.
Anissa grew up with lots of dogs and cats and even a pet rabbit, but currently has to settle for getting to love on all the pets at work. She joined the BAC team in September of 2018, but started in the veterinary industry when she was just a junior in high school. She started in the kennel and has worked her way up from here and plans to go back to school to earn her certification. Anissa enjoys seeing patients go from sick or injured back to completely healthy. She says it makes her proud of the skills she has learned and proud to work in the veterinary profession.
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her son going to parks and just chilling at home. She is a vocal leader on her church worship team and loves to binge watch movies and read books.

Ryan came to BAC during the summer of 2016. Wanting to gain experience with animals in a veterinary setting, Ryan joined our kennel technician team part time and stayed busy taking care of our furry guests. He started his college career at Huntingdon College the following year and his availability changed. However, we were very happy that Ryan chose to become a seasonal employee during that transition. Ryan is now enrolled in Pharmacy School, but he still comes to work with us during his down time, usually on weekends and holidays, to get his fix on puppy & kitty love. Ryan says the best part of his job is being able to take care of the pets that come to stay with us, as well as working with great people!
Ryan was born in Lexington, KY. After a couple of moves, he ended up in Daphne, AL with his family & dogs, Tide and Bear. One of Ryan’s passions is wrestling, having competed for several years at both the high school and collegiate level. In his spare time, Ryan also enjoys hunting and fishing.
