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. Kristie Monroe
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. Jennie Holcomb
I grew up in Saxapahaw, NC and have lived in North Carolina my entire life. I studied Biology at Appalachian State University as a first step to achieve my childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian.
In 2019, I graduated from North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine with a focus in Small Animals. I spent my first-year practicing at a feline only hospital. Here, I was grateful to expand my passion for feline-friendly techniques to help reduce anxiety and pain during veterinary visits.
I became Fear Free Certified® in the summer of 2020. I enjoy building relationships with clients and patients and helping to tailor treatment plans to each family’s needs.
I am excited to have recently moved to Davie County to be closer to family and my husband, Chase’s job. Our fur babies are 2 senior pups named Oscar and Scout, and a tortoiseshell cat, Elsie.
In our free time, we all like to spend time outdoors camping and hiking, and with our extended family. I also have my certification through the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) and aim to provide the best care to all of our kitty cats!
Dr. Rhys Long
I grew up in Winston-Salem and have lived in North Carolina most of my life. I decided to pursue veterinary medicine as a career based on my experience with horses growing up. I did my undergraduate work at Randolph-Macon Woman’s College in Lynchburg, VA, and then completed veterinary school at the University of Georgia in Athens, GA. I returned to the Piedmont to be close to my family. My favorite part of practice is getting to know patients and their families and developing personalized care plans for each patient.
