Meet Your Care Team
Dr. Jessica McCaskill
I grew up in Connecticut and knew from a very young age that I wanted to be a veterinarian. Because there are very few veterinary colleges in the U.S., at 18 I moved to Virginia to attend college at Hollins University and then Veterinary school at Virginia Tech. During my time in school, I fell in love with the south and the rest is history!
After moving to the Mocksville area, I decided veterinary medicine should be offered to my community in a better way. My primary responsibility is to be a caretaker to the animals who depend on me, so I strive to be a healer of my patients as well as a comfort to the families who love them.
I work very diligently at providing veterinary care plans which are appropriate for each individual family. Providing economic care at the pinnacle of current medicine is difficult, however we work hard every day to find that exact balance.
Dr. Sarah Little
I grew up in Greensboro, NC, and becoming a veterinarian is all I have ever wanted to do since I was five. I practiced in Montana after vet school at NC State and decided I wanted to be closer to home and family. My career brought me to Davie County, which allows me to be close to family while still pursuing my career as a small animal practitioner.
At work, It’s important to me that my clients have an active part in the development of their pet’s treatment plan. I like to present clear options for my clients while also giving recommendations for the gold standard of care.
Dr. Courtney Haley
Growing up in small town in Massachusetts, my passion for animals was fostered by spending time at the neighbor’s farm surrounded by horses, chickens, and of course dogs and cats. I attended Wake Forest University to obtain my bachelors degree, during which time I developed my fondness for North Carolina. After earning my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Iowa State University, I jumped at the chance to return to practice here in Mocksville.
I enjoy working with clients to develop individualized treatment plans for each pet, as well as enjoy the challenges that each case brings.
Dr. Kristie Monroe, DVM
I was raised in a military family and attended Virginia Tech for my undergraduate work in Biology. I immediately went into veterinary school after my senior year and attended Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine until 2008. My passion for veterinary medicine came from working with livestock animals on my uncle’s farm and being outdoors most of my life (camping, fishing, etc.). We moved from southwest Virginia to the Winston area a few years ago and have very much enjoyed life below the mountain!
I have one dog named Gus who is the best dog I have ever had. He faces some challenges with arthritis and allergies as he is aging, but he is doing great and is full of love everyday! Our family highly supports rescue animals, and we will always have “muts” like Gus!
Dr. Amanda Steffen, DVM
I grew up in a small town outside of Columbia, SC where I was raised around all animals from horses to cats to hamsters. I always wanted to be an advocate for them and contribute to the profession of veterinary medicine. I received my Bachelors in Science from the University of South Carolina at Aiken, then attended the University of Tennessee where I earned my doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.
I like being able to bring calm to the chaos, which is why I specialize in emergency medicine and surgery. I spent a year in emergency medicine before deciding to pursue general practice so I could follow through with my sweet patients and clients.
