Anna has been with our practice since July of 2000. Although now only part-time, she is still an essential asset to our veterinary practice. Anna has completed various Veterinary Assistant courses over the years and has attended additional educational seminars when available. Anna has enjoyed showing, breeding, and judging conformation dog shows and has owned American Eskimo Dogs for over 20 years. She has also committed her time and resources to rescue and foster dogs and cats in need. Anna enjoys her afternoon coffee from Baines, loves traveling, and is a master of embroidery and quilting. Anna has experience with dogs, cats, horses, pigs, and chickens and continues to show her love for animals on a daily basis at home and the workplace.


Taylor Kidd

Taylor started working at James River Animal Hospital in July of 2014. Having come to our practice with previous animal experience, Taylor brings compassionate care and a gentle confidence to every animal she encounters. Taylor has a passion for local shelters and rescue groups and she has benefited many by her participation in their volunteer work, the fostering of their dogs and cats, and by making donations to their causes. Taylor has adopted both special needs and foster animals including her two felines - Levi Stubbs and PrimRose - and her senior Pomeranian, Agatha. Her other two dogs, Finnick and Gabe, have aided in her rescue work by socializing foster dogs and demonstrating to them the desirable behaviors for their new surroundings and around other pets.

Taylor dreams of becoming a licensed Veterinary Technician and plans on pursuing her certification in this program in the near future.
