ELIZABETH PEREZ - LEAD RECEPTIONIST
I began working for Buckner Animal Clinic in May 2011. I am one of the receptionists. I help provide service to our clients to assist them with their pets needs. I enjoy meeting new people everyday. I am extremely happy to have joined a great team and work for great doctors. The most important aspect of my life is family, my husband, and two children (a boy and a girl). Family time and gatherings with friends.
EDWARD PAPENDIK - CERTIFIED/LEAD VETERINARY TECHNICIAN
I am a certified veterinary assistant. I began working at Buckner Animal Clinic in June 1997. My main responsibilities include total care for the surgical patients including anesthesia, assisting in surgery and recovery. I also perform numerous diagnostic tests, take radiographs, as well as ordering and maintaining our equipment, and inventory of drugs and supplies. While working with Dr. Pruitt, Dr. Nix and Dr. Johnson, I have learned a lot about veterinary medicine, and pet care. Most importantly developed my technical skills, as well as my personal skills.
ALBERT LOPEZ - CERTIFIED VETERINARY TECHNICIAN
I graduated from Skyline High School in the spring of 1997. I earned an Associate Degree in Applied Science at Mountain View College, as well as obtained an Associate Degree in Veterinary Technology at Cedar Valley College. I began working for Buckner Animal Clinic in the fall of 2001 while studying at Cedar Valley. I serve the clinic as a skilled certified veterinary technician who is part of a team that provides medical support for our clients needs. Away from the clinic I serve as a volunteer by helping tutor youth for the Trinity River Mission (a volunteer-based community learning center) who encourage academic success to disadvantaged youth in West Dallas. In my spare time I enjoy physical training at the T. Boone Pickens YMCA where I participate in group exercise classes. I also enjoy playing basketball as the team captain of Outkast who is part of the City of Dallas Recreation Program, but most of all I enjoy gatherings of family and friends.
LACEE PEARSON - VETERINARY TECHNICIAN
My name is Lacee Pearson and I've been a veterinary technician for over 15 years. I have worked here at Buckner Animal Clinic for approximately 3 years and I enjoy my job as a Vet Tech. As a young child I always had a love for animals and hoped that one day I would get the chance to work with them. Well my dream came true and here I am today doing what I've always loved, working with animals. As a technician my primary job is caring for hospitalized patients, performing in house diagnostic testing, radiology procedures, and sometimes preparing patients for surgery. I also work with clients helping them understand how to properly care for their pets with vaccinations, diets, heartworm prevention and maintaining their over-all health. Someone once told me," It's better to prevent than to treat", and I feel that it stands true for man and animals. Well, now I'll tell you a little about myself. I have been a resident of the area for over 36 years. I graduated from West Mesquite High School in 1984. I have 4 brothers and 1 sister. Believe it or not, we actually get along very well - no sibling rivalry! Some of my favorite things to do are spending time with my family, reading, camping, fishing, sports and horseback riding when time permits. I have an array of animals - 2 dogs, 4 cats, 1 rabbit and 1 horse. So, you could say that I have a full house.

I was born in Cuba, where I've spent most of my life and studied. I graduated as a veterinary technician in 2001. Afterwards, I worked with birds, pigs, domestic animals, and zoo animals. While I worked as a veterinary technician, I continued my studies at the Facility of Veterinary Medicine (in Cuba). I graduated in 2008 as a doctor in Veterinary Medicine and Zootechnics at the Central University of Las Villas, Cuba. I continued working in the wonderful world of animals, worked with vaccines for veterinary use and pharmaceutical productions, and participated in several international events held in Cuba. I also worked at a veterinary hospital in Ecuador. A few year years later (2011), I graduated with a Masters in Advanced Animal Health. I am currently working as a veterinary technician at Buckner Animal Clinic while I continue learning English, in hopes of practicing veterinary medicine in the U.S.

Hello, I am from Cuba. I have lived in the U.S. for less than 2 years. I studied Veterinary Medicine in Cuba. I became a Veterinary doctor in 2000 and became a Veterinary Clinic specialist in 2010. I have been a Veterinary Doctor for the last 16 years. I worked at the Small Clinic in the Veterinary Institute and the Artificial Insemination Center working with bulls and pigs, while teaching veterinary procedures to the institute's students. I am so proud to be a part of the Buckner Animal Clinic family since April 2017. I've spent all of my life surrounded by animals. I enjoy caring for our pets very much. Health begins with hygiene, cleaning, feeding, and good behavior, so I enjoy doing kennel technician tasks at Buckner Animal Clinic.
