Hospital Management

APRIL BALL - HOSPITAL DIRECTOR, OWNER

In the field since: 2003

Owned by: 3 dogs, Molly the old beagle, Gracie the 3 legged wonder, and Soldier a huge wild thing found roaming the woods.

What I love most about what I do: I love educating people on the importance of preventative medicine, so much of the heartache we see could have been prevented! I like working with people in challenging situations to find the best resolution. I've got a soft spot for the big dogs. I also love working with dogs that may be scared or act aggressive when coming to the vet's office - with the right handling it is rewarding to watch them learn to trust us. 

Who I am when I'm not at Davis Animal Hospital: a New Hampshire native, a fun-loving wife and mom to two little kids. I love riding horses, goofing off and spending time with my family. Together we enjoy the outdoors and traveling to find new adventures. We love our church, the beach, watersports, hiking and spending time visiting with our widespread family. I'm an avid fitness geek and passionate about our Davis Fitness Challenge we sponsor for our staff!

You would be surprised to know that: I am more afraid of an aggressive kitten than a 180 pound snarling Rottweiler!

SAVANNAH ELLIS - ASSISTANT MANAGER

In the field since: 2016

Owned by:  4 dogs, 2 cats, a ball python, and a 5 year old.

What I love most about what I do: Meeting new people and pets. Learning something new every day and the exotic patients are always a fun learning experience! I enjoy being able to do a little bit of everything and become more experienced at what I do.

Who I am when I'm not at Davis Animal Hospital: I am a wife, mother, and zookeeper.

You would be surprised to know that:  I love to read all different genres of books. Cleaning is so deeply satisfying. Sleeping should be a sport, because I could be a successful athlete if it were. Spiders give me the heebie jeebies.
