Dr. White, Owner and founder of Springlake Animal Hospital graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. After graduation, she started her career in a mixed animal practice in Orange Park before leaving to start a mobile services practice. In 1997, Springlake Animal Hospital was founded in a small office we referred to as “the closet”. As the clinic grew through support from the local community, in 2000 we moved to our current location at 7400 State Road 21 across the street from Johnny’s Barbeque. She has 8 horses, 5 dogs, 2 cats and a Cougar named Kiki. She brings her passion for animals to the hospital, and that love for animals is the basis for the way Springlake has been run, and a big reason for its consistent growth over the years.

Brandi Thomas – Veterinary Technician and Certified Ultrasound Technician
Hi, my name is Brandi. I have been with Springlake working as a Vet technician since July 2019. I am certified for ultrasounds as of October 2020. I have 1 cat at home, Leo (pictured above), and he is my perfect, handsome, mouthy boy, who doesn’t enjoy being at my job as much as I do. I have always wanted to be involved in a veterinarian’s office and when I got hired, I was beyond excited for the new opportunities to come. When I first started here, I had no idea that my co-workers would become my family. They push me to exceed expectations and more. I couldn’t be more thankful for the people that surround me every single day, between our clients to our patients to my co-workers. I love what I do, and I wake up every day excited to come to work.
I take pride in the work we do here. It really is a remarkable place to work and I am so thankful to be a part of the team every single day.

I am happy to come to work each day and take stories home with me, and I look forward to the stories I’ll take home with me tomorrow.
Dana Gibson – Receptionist
Hey! My name is Dana. I am engaged to an amazing man, I have 3 awesome children and one beautiful granddaughter. I have been in customer service since I was 15 years old. I spent 13 years as a manager at Walgreens in Jacksonville, 1 year as a Correction Officer in Baker County & 1 year as a bookkeeper.
Growing up my parents said I brought home any kind of “stray” there was, stray people, stray animals I always wanted to help. As I grew up I did just that I became a foster parent and continued to find strays (animals & people lol) and help in all things that came my way.
I have spent my life taken care of kids and animals. I wouldn’t change a thing. At this moment I only have Sargent (as pictured) but I love my job and the people I work with and completely believe that I have found my “work family”. I enjoy meeting all the fur babies that come in.

And occasionally, I attempt to go home with a visitor at my home.
