Dr. Jessica Smith Kidd
I am from Marietta Ohio, and knew I wanted to return home after completing my veterinary degree at St George’s University. Dr. David Spindler gave me that opportunity at Green Meadow Veterinary Hospital and was a great mentor. As time went on, I got married to my husband Joe, and our family grew. I have three beautiful daughters that keep me busy when I’m not working. We have a French bulldog, Courtney, three cats, Tilly, Figs, and Ding, and four goats, Daisy, Buttercup, Sophia, and Dory. I am licensed as a veterinarian in Ohio and West Virginia. I am a member of the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA), the West Virginia Veterinary Medical Association (WVVMA), and the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP). I am training for veterinary acupuncture. I am excited to be learning a new form of treatment for my patients to help with pain management, inflammation, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and other conditions. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Joe and I love music and take in several concerts each year. We also enjoy spending time camping in the summer.
My name is Caytlin and I have been in veterinary medicine for two years. I grew up on a farm and my mom worked at Green Meadow years ago. I always knew that I wanted to work in a veterinary clinic. I graduated from Bradford School in 2020 became a veterinary nurse in 2021. When I have time, I volunteer at the Athens County Humane Society. I love spending time with my family, our four dogs, and our cat. My favorite part of this job is helping clients understand their pets. Animals can’t speak for themselves, so I’m able to give them a voice. I love to solve problems and interact with clients to help them give their fur babies the best care possible.
I have been in management most of my life but am fairly new to the veterinary world. I’ve since discovered it is not only an interesting and unceasingly fluctuating environment, but I get to witness fascinating medical procedures and rescues daily. The staff here is wonderful to work with; they are dedicated, well trained, and personally invested in every single animal that comes through the doors.
I am married with two sons, am an avid beekeeper and part time musician, and share our home with dogs, cats, lizards, fish, and a small flock of chickens. I enjoy spending time reading, practicing instruments, hiking, kayaking, playing chess, and, of course, spending time with my family.
I began working at Green Meadow Veterinary Hospital during the spring of 1981 and my responsibilities have changed over the years. I am currently employed as the office bookkeeper, but my tenure allows me to be versatile and help out where I am needed. When I’m not working I enjoy cooking, and my co-workers enjoy the results of my time experimenting with recipes. I also enjoy collecting old cast iron items.
My family is important to me, and spending time with them is essential. My feathered and furry family welcome me home each day, including one bird, three dogs, and four cats.
I love my family – both real and extended. I love my pets, and most everyone else’s, too. I love my yard and the flowers there. I especially love to cook and bake. My duties are veterinary surgery assisting, x-rays, answering questions when I can, and answering phones when needed.
My name is Kelsey and I have been the front desk receptionist at Green Meadow since 2016. My role as a receptionist is very demanding, from answering phone calls, to scheduling appointments, answering questions and even sometimes assisting in the treatment of the pets when needed! I enjoy learning & cuddling clients fur babies.
Aside from work, I enjoy spending time with my significant other Korey & my pets, Trixie, Izzy, Nola, Blaze, Whiskey, Winnie & Chili Bean are all very spoiled!! I have 5 niece and nephews and I love spending as much time with them as I can. I also enjoy cooking, cleaning and the outdoors.
From a very young age animals have always been a part of my life, growing up on a dairy farm, being active in 4H & FFA really impacted me as a person & I wouldn’t be the person I am today without my parents & those organizations.
I hope your time with us at Green Meadow is always positive as we work hard to meet all of you & your pet’s needs.
My name is Joyce and I started working in July 2016 as a receptionist. I enjoy greeting our clients and their pets when they walk through the door and assisting them with their needs. I’m new in the world of veterinary medicine, and I find it very interesting!
My husband Paul and I have five children: Christine, Eric, Adam, Garret, and Matthew. We also enjoy our four cats: Buckeye, Phillip, Thomas, Amelia, and our turtle, Herbie.
I love watching my son Matthew play football, basketball, and track events. GO TIGERS!! My other children are adults and spending time and traveling with them as often as possible is precious to me. I’m a huge Ohio State Buckeyes fan! I love watching the games with my family and friends. GO BUCKS!!
My name is Meagan, and I’ve been in the medical/veterinary field for over 20 years. I love helping animals and people. Currently, I am a receptionist and help pet owners with their questions and appointments.
While there is a lot to be said for keeping track of files and handling day to day transactions, I love the medical side of this fast-paced, crazy world of veterinary medicine, too! There is always something new and interesting to learn. It’s so gratifying to help critters feel their very best!
Hello, my name is Cameron. I am currently a veterinary student at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. My passion for helping animals as well as helping people is what lead me down this crazy path. I started with Green Meadow during my senior year of high school and have been here for the past 5 years now. I absolutely love the practice, profession, patients, and clients that we have. I will be working at GMVH throughout school so if you see me, I am probably on break! My plans are to come back and be an associate veterinarian in 2025! My passion lies in large animals as well as companion animals.
My name is Danni. I just finished my second year at University of Findley. My adventure with Green Meadow Veterinary Hospital started with job shadowing.

Hi, my name is Abbi. I have been a vet assistant for a little over two years at Green Meadow. I am currently finishing my first semester of veterinary technician school at Dallas Community College.

My boyfriend and I also share two cats, Tucker and Lenny. Working in veterinary medicine has been my lifelong dream & I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Hi, I’m Delanie. I started at Green Meadow last year and love that I get to help animals feel better. I love learning new things and there is always something interesting going on at the hospital. I was even able to rescue a kitten that came in with a broken leg. He is doing well and my girls just love him. In my free time, I love spending time with my two daughters and my boyfriend. We love to spend time with our family. I’m very excited to see what the future holds for me here at Green Meadow!

My name is Kathleen and I am new to the veterinary world. I am amazed at the team work that makes Green Meadow so special. Every day is different and exciting! The work that goes into keeping our patients healthy and our clients happy is very rewarding and I am happy to be part of the team. In my spare time, I love to do anything crafty! This includes anything from knitting to woodwork. My only child is all grown up but we still spend lots of time together. We love to bake together and to play video games. I have a golden retriever, and two black cats that I adore. I’m sure my time at Green Meadow will result in many more pets!
