Dr.CassidyVeterinarian and Owner
Dr. Cassidy purchased Eustis Veterinary Hospital in September of 2009 after doing relief work here for over 10 years. She is a Florida native born in Tampa
Dr. Cassidy has wanted to be a veterinarian since she was three years old and visited a veterinary clinic where her aunt worked. In high school, she spent her summers working at Upper Keys Veterinary Clinic in Islamorada, FL. She obtained her undergraduate chemistry major in 1992 at Georgia Institute of Technology and graduated Cum Laude in 1996 with her DVM from the University of Georgia, College of Veterinary Medicine.
She has previously served on the Orange County Animal Services advisory board for the 6 years. She is a member of the AVMA and FVMA. Dr. Cassidy currently has 30 cats, 4 dogs, 2 horses, and 1 fish tank. She also has anywhere from 2 to 4 beehives and is an involuntary beekeeper since her beekeeping daughter left to go to University of Florida to study Entomology. Dr. Cassidy has been with her husband since they met in 1989, he is a software engineer and always says 'No more cats/dogs!' but is a complete softie and works from home with a cat on his lap and a dog by his side. When Dr. Cassidy is not at work; she loves spending time with her animals and immediate family, taking photos, drawing and doing crafts like Pysanky. The only thing she loves more than animals is her daughter and her husband. (But they'll tell you the cats rank higher)
Hi & Welcome!
I started my career at Eustis Veterinary Hospital in June of 2010.
Being born a native Floridian, my family and I lived in Orlando. We raised and showed Paso Fino horses, but, as Orlando got busier and busier, we purchased 5 acres on the outskirts of Sorrento. I attended & graduated school in Mt. Dora from 1971 - 1981. In high school I participated in many activities, with my favorite being softball and volleyball. After graduating, I began my career in Business Management & Accounting.
I continued on that path until December 2009, when, due to the economy, I began to look for a new career.
This brings us to my present employment at Eustis Veterinary Hospital, which has been a gift and a blessing, as my whole life has been centered around animals. My heart has always been with the health, well-being, quality care, and safety of my pets, so working at Eustis Veterinary Hospital is just a completely natural position for me to be in.
LeslieCommunications Director & Kennel Manager
Hello there, my name is Leslie LoVoy I started working at Eustis Veterinary Hospital in April 2011. I have always had a love for animals since I was a little child. I graduated from Satellite High School in 1982 and started selling real estate at an early age at my mother's real estate company. I married my husband Wayne in 1994 and wanted to start my own business but not in real estate.
In 2001 I attended a school in South Carolina for Detector Dog training, specializing in Narcotic and Explosive Detector dogs. September 11, 2001, changed our country as we know it and the need for Detector dogs was in high demand. Working as an independent contractor I was privileged and honored to have two of the dogs that I trained go to the New York Stock Exchange as part of their security team. My canine partner and one of the loves in my life was my Doberman Sir Hensley of Loxley, yes I am a Robinhood fan!
In 2002 Wayne and I built a training facility/kennel, this was my love and passion. One year later we welcomed our son Noah into this world. About 4 years later with aging parents still living in Florida, we decided to come back home giving Noah the chance to see his grandparents more.
Hensley and I became members of Therapy Dogs Inc. soon thereafter I started working for Dr. Cassidy at EVH as a Kennel Technician. Spa day for the dogs was always fun for me. Greeting the owners at check-in time and having those tails wagging for me as I walked toward them made me smile.
Present day I am one of the voices you hear on the phone. Communications Director is a title I hold dearly. It has allowed me the opportunity to learn about the animals, and their health and interact with the owners when calling them with bloodwork, and fecal and urine results. If you have questions don't hesitate to call and ask me. I enjoy my job, I enjoy speaking with people on the phone, and I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our little family here at EVH.
Hi, my name is Kristin, I grew up in Florida with a variety of animals at home from horses to an Iguana when I was a child. Growing up with animals I always knew that I wanted to work with animals. I have worked in the veterinary field for 20 years. I graduated in 2009 with my veterinary assistant certification. I have called EVH home for the past 3 years. I have two fur babies, Abbie, and Sophie. In my spare time, my daughter and I enjoy park hopping at Disney.
Dorothy started out her career in Restaurant Management for 13 years. Starting as a volunteer with the Humane Society moving up to several part-time paid positions spanning the course of 11 years. Spent 19 years in County Government. Working part-time on Saturdays as a Veterinarian Receptionist all before moving to Eustis. Dr. Cassidy became her Primary Veterinarian and she liked coming in so much as a client that she 'bugged' Dr. Cassidy to let her work here. I love the Doctor, all my co-workers, our clients, and the job.
Hi! My name is Katie. You probably best know me as the voice on the other end of the phone! It's my job here to listen, inform, and get you and your fur babies in and taken care of! I have been with Eustis Veterinary Hospital for a little short of two years now. Before finding my home here at EVH, I worked for a rescue and as a vet tech assistant for another location. I have 3 rescued fur babies of my own. Two dogs, Roscko and Bruno, and my kitty cat Sprinkles! In my free time, I love spending time with my daughter and making many memories together! I look forward to speaking to you and meeting you and your pets!
Tiffany is the lead technician and Inventory Manager here at Eustis Veterinary Hospital. I knew as a little girl that I wanted a career involving animals and always grew up with kitties in the home. I started fulfilling my dream by becoming an intern here back in 2012 during my 12th-grade year. While I was also dual enrolled at Lake Sumter State College. During this time, I realized my true passion for animal health and was hired in July of 2013. Since then, my love for veterinary medicine has flourished. Giving animals a 'voice' and educating clients so they can give their fur babies the best quality of life they can receive is what is most important to me. In my free time, I love spending quality time with my son, exploring new places, and doing new things. I have one cat named Nubz who is spoiled endlessly. I plan on continuing my education and am determined to become a veterinarian. I look forward to meeting you and giving your animal the best quality care.

Deb has been with EVH for 2 years. Without a doubt, she loves animals! You can hear Deb speaking sweetly and kindly to the most frightened of patients calming their fears. Hard-working no job is too big for Deb.
Meet Dan Beierschmitt he is rarely seen without a smile on his face and he is notorious for giving compliments 'just because'. His outgoing personality puts people (and our patients) at immediate ease. Not one for sitting still, he appeals to staff and clients alike as a go-getter and his affection for all animals never wanes. His enthusiasm is infectious and his consistent manners make us wonder if he truly is new to the south! You'll also know him as the French bulldog guy as he breeds and shows them.

LisaKennel Technician & Groomer
Hi, my name is Lisa, I've been with EVH for almost 5 years working as a Kennel Technician but it really doesn't seem like work at all. As a Professional dog groomer, it gets kind of lonely working by myself, so coming to EVH on Mondays is the best part of my week. The doctor and the rest of the staff are some of the most professional animal lovers I've ever met and great friends. My husband and I have been married for 33 years, we have two wonderful daughters and two beautiful Grandchildren. We have lived in Lake County for over 25 years and have a small hobby farm where we have two horses, 6 dogs, 4 cats a pig, and a ferret.
Tammy was born in Kentucky but was raised in Brandon FL. There she fell in love with pets, Johnny Depp, Tim Burton, and Jim Henson. Growing up there were always four-legged family members in and out of the house, from dogs to bunnies, fish to the feline. From 1989 to 2017, Tammy was a professional cosmetologist, servicing everything from a perm to a mohawk, her specialty was corrective color. Through this time, she has even a wider range of animals she had the pleasure to call 'family'. Her pride and joy is her Jeep! A jeep gal through and through...Oh, and her 16-year-old son, Badge, he's pretty cool too! Tammy has a massive interest in Marine Biology, to this day her favorite animals are dolphins, and she attributes her love and passion for animals to one person, Jacque Cousteau who was a French Naval Officer, explorer, conservationist, researcher, and many other things who studied the sea and all forms of life in water. He also co-developed the Aqua-Lung, making marine biology a more tangible field to study. Recently, Tammy has taken initiative on her lifelong passion for animals by working at t County Animal Shelter and going to school to be a Certified Veterinary Technician. With over three years of hands-on experience along with two years of continued education.
Tammy currently has 3 rescue animals in her family including a tripod feline.
