Dr. Haley Johnson
Jami has been working at the Cat Hospital of Vero Beach for over 7 years. She has always been obsessed with cats and truly loves them all! She feels this is the purrfect job for her, because she gets to work with cats everyday. She strives to not only help cats feel better but to make their trip to the vet as pleasant and stress free as possible. One of her favorite parts of her job is being able to interact and help all of our clients. She also loves our caring for our boarders. She looks forward to seeing each and every boarder, and she makes sure to give them lots of love and attention everyday. She never leaves without saying bye to every kitty. 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 18 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.
Frances has been with the Cat Hospital of Vero Beach for 5 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. She has gotten to know our clients very well, and they know she is always their to help. 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). Her youngest cat, Scrappy Doo, was a rescue cat from Raining Cats Rescue. He had a lot of issues when he was a kitten, but Frances took him in and cared for him and now he is an energetic healthy kitty. She is happily married to her husband, Mike, and she has 5 children (1 boy and 4 girls)!!! In her spare time (ha ha) she enjoys reading and spending time with her family.
Elaine has been a receptionist at the Cat Hospital of Vero Beach for 2 years. She is the happy voice you hear whenever you call. She loves her job, because not only does she get to help our clients, but she also gets to help all of the kitties. Elaine also enjoys photography, and she does a great job of taking photos of all the kitties (which isn't an easy task). She helps Jami by taking photos of the boarders and the staff, which she uses for our Facebook page and website. Elaine has two children which she absolutely adores. Her daughter just graduated from High School, and her son is now a proud soldier in the US Navy. Her baby is her handsome kitty Al Cappaccino. Al Cappaccino is a rescue cat from Raining Cats Rescue, and Elaine fell in love the moment she saw him. He is a sweet boy who always greets her with kisses and purrs.

Pixie is 19 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!
