Dr. Gambella welcomes you to our website and invites you to stop by and meet our staff!
Jami has been working at the Cat Hospital of Vero Beach for over 6 years. She has been obsessed with cats since she was 2 years old and truly loves them all! Her favorite part of the job is helping the cats and clients and spoiling our feline friends. Jami has multiple degrees including an AS, an AA, and she graduated from Southern New Hampshire University with her Bachelor of Arts in 2013. Since that time she has focused on obtaining Veterinary certifications and is our Lead Veterinary Technician. She is the current manager of the Cat Hospital’s Facebook page and enjoys posting special stories about our client’s cats as well as interesting informational posts. Jami’s significant other is her high school sweetheart, Adam, and they have been together exclusively for 17 years. They share their home with 4 cats, Zeus, Lou, Charlie Waffles, and Reggie. Her interests include music and cats especially feline behavior. She also enjoys training her cats, especially Charlie Waffles, who can proudly fetch, speak on command, and ride on her shoulders. Her newest cat, Reggie, is a rescue cat that had trouble finding a forever home until he went home with her. He makes a purrfect addition to her family and is loved by everyone who meets him.
Frances has been with the Cat Hospital of Vero Beach for four years. Frances currently works as our lead receptionist. She is also one of our veterinary technicians. Frances enjoys being able to help our clients and their cats. Prior to her career in the veterinary industry, Frances served in the US Navy for three years. Frances has 5 cats at home (Sam, Missy, Mela, Boo and Scrappy Doo) and one dog (Marley). She is married and has 5 children (1 boy and 4 girls)!!! In her spare time (ha ha) she enjoys reading.
Maddie, Technician Assistant
Pixie is 17 years young and has been the official feline receptionist since our opening in 2008. Her duties include greeting and kissing clients (and sometimes nipping) and supervising the staff. She has made it her personal challenge to test the stain resistance of our furniture cushions with her large hair balls.
Pixie has not always led the luxurious life she enjoys today. She did a short incarceration in the Broward County Animal Shelter for biting her previous owner but was later adjudicated! She was then acquired by Dr. Gambella and rehabilitated (mostly!). She currently has mild cardiac disease and is now the poster child for taking pills. She even has her own You Tube video demonstrating proper pill taking behavior!
