We’re one big family.
You might have noticed that we have a rotating crew of relief docs holding down the fort at Firehouse Belterra until our new Medical Director, Dr. Robbie Calabrese arrives in April. More information about Dr. Calabrese (or Dr. Rob as he likes to be called) coming soon.
In the meantime, please know that our trusted team of relief doctors rotate between all five of our Austin Firehouse locations to fill in when veterinarians are out of the office. Like everyone on our team, they are thoroughly vetted and highly trusted. Our relief veterinarians are part of the Firehouse family and have worked with us consistently for years.
Adan was born and raised in Austin, Texas. From a young age, he knew he wanted to work with animals and studied Veterinary Technology at Austin Community College.
Adan joined Firehouse Animal Health Center in 2016 and is thrilled to be part of the leadership team at Belterra Village. He regularly attends veterinary technician and management conferences to keep up-to-date on new medical developments.
Adan takes a special interest in client service, patient relationships, preventive wellness exams, and clinic operations. When not at Firehouse, he enjoys spending time with his Fiancé and his son, Samuel. He also has a passion for American Quarter Horses that he owns, breeds, and trains in different disciplines.
Sandra was born and raised in Austin Texas. She began her career in the veterinary field in 2005. While working in veterinary medicine, she completed a degree as a Certified Medical Assistant.
Sandra’s passion has always been working with animals and in June of 2018 Sandra joined the Firehouse team in Belterra Village. Her interest and focus at Firehouse includes client education, as well as fostering a great client and patient experience. Sandra is working on her Fear-Free Certification, a method that creates a better experience for pets by reducing stressors within a hospital setting. In her free time, she spends the weekends watching her daughter Alyssa play in select softball tournaments and traveling with her son Christopher to his All-Star Cheer Competitions. And of course, she loves hanging out with her 2 dog and cats.
Kaitlin moved from South Carolina to Texas in 2008 and hasn’t looked back, (partly because Texas has WAY better tacos). She graduated from Texas State University in 2017 with a degree in Psychology. Kaitlin joined the Firehouse Belterra Village team in May of 2018. Here, she has taken a special interest in client communication, patient relationships, and will soon obtain her Fear-Free Certification, a method that creates a better experience for pets by reducing stressors within a hospital setting.
In her spare time, Kaitlin enjoys blogging about her culinary adventures (she’s a huge foodie), reading, and playing video games. She also lives with 4 cats, all of whom are shelter rescues!
