Terri grew up in the pet care industry, starting with a family-run boarding facility in Charlottesville in 1992 up until moving out of the area in 2004. She had been in small animal veterinary medicine for over 13 years prior to joining WEC in July 2018. Terri lives in Caroline with her husband, Stuart, and their Irish Wolfhound, Halo.
Grace grew up riding and showing hunter/jumpers and rode on the Equestrian Team of VCU. She graduated from VCU with a degree in Sociology and Political Science in 2016 and spent five years travelling up and down the east coast working on electoral campaigns. Grace enjoys showing on the local circuit with her OTTB Goose, hanging out with her two dogs- Patrick and Lucy, and growing long stem flowers which she sells on the weekends at local farmer’s markets.
Angie is the one you’ll find out in the medicine barn at the end of her work day, passing out love and well wishes to the inpatients.
In her youth, she had that classic animal lover’s dream of being a veterinarian, but after working in a small animal practice, realized she was just too soft natured to be good at it. Instead, she got good at business accounting and after many years of working in CPA firms, has found her “happy place” at Woodside serving and supporting the amazing medical team that she calls her super heroes. Outside of Woodside, she’s a guitar playing music fanatic that loves spending time with her son and dog, camping, bike riding, kayaking, and doing crafts or reading.
Karen was born and raised in Palm Beach County, Florida and has been around horses (read: obsessed with) since she was seven. In 2019, she and her husband packed up the horse and cats and relocated to Virginia to be closer to family (and to get a break from the Florida heat!). When not in the office, Karen is either at the barn spending time with her horse, hiking our state parks with her husband, or at home with her cats, reading, sewing or painting.
