Meagan Keen - Practice Manager 


Meagan has been in the veterinary field since 2013. Starting proudly at the bottom in kennels, which is no easy feat, she climbed her way to the top bettering herself and her skills along the way, earning her first Practice Manager title in 2015. Aside from dedicating her life to the animal medical field she also manages her own life at home! Between two wild kids, cheerleading practice and football games, taking care of her own seven dogs, homemaking and finding time to go to the mud parks in her spare time with her loving husband of eight years, Duane; Meagan juggles it all. Meagan is a hard worker, dedicated to the line of work she is in, no doubt. She is passionate about animal medicine as well as being a wonderful mother, wife and friend. 


Amarilis Montalvo-Ortiz

Despite having no prior experience in the field of veterinary medicine, her hard work and dedication to clients and their pets quickly moved her up the ranks to where she is today. She truly believes in the work that the staff at Mills Animal Hospital does collectively and how they strive to provide exceptional care for every patient that walks through the door. In her own words:

“My favorite part in the veterinary field is the authenticity and complete art that each and every one person brings to the clinic as a whole. Watching a groomer groom and loving what she does. Watching the doctors take care of the animals as if it were their own. Watching a receptionist feel the concern for the client as if they were going through it as well. Watching kennel and playcare take care of and handle the pets with just love and compassion. In all honesty, THE TEAM of dedicated employees that love their craft and have such a passion for what they do.”

Amarilis is a member of the Georgia Veterinary Managers Association (GAVMA) and is currently enrolled in veterinary management courses at Penn Foster. Her primary passion outside of work lies with her family but she also loves living on their farm in the country and caring for their menagerie of animals. Some of those animals include a Chinchilla named Maria (who she refers to as her granddaughter), 2 cats, 8 dogs, and many, many chickens.

Savanna Mitchell - Certified Veterinary Assistant

She committed her extra times to helping animals and received her vet assistant certificate in 2019.  She enjoys nature, reading and sleeping.  Her perfect day is one where she is snuggling next to her 2 dogs (Tinsley and Sam) while reading a nice romance novel!

Ashleigh LSU

Ashleigh McClure - Client Service Representative

After graduating early from high school, Ashleigh began to travel and search for her place in this world. She wanted somewhere that she could make an impact. Being a mother of three, making her children proud is so important. So not only teaching them about compassion towards animals, but also the humans that come along with them, is priority.


Learning the reception aspect of the veterinary industry was very important to her and just seemed right. Ashleigh believes that empathy for animal goes a long way, but also extends to helping the humans that come along with them.  She loves being one of the first faces a client sees when they enter into the clinic, letting them know that she is here for them and will do anything she can to help them.  

In Ashleigh's free time, she loves to spend time with her kids, going fishing, playing video games, shopping and enjoying her 2 Fur Babies.

Stephanie Holder - Veterinary Assistant

Stephanie’s animal loving adventure started with caring for rescue babies at the humane society and has now recently joined the Mill’s team. She is the mother of four beautiful children with no shortage of spunky animals in her household. 

Stephanie loves long walks on the beach, sunsets on the beach, spending all day at the beach (honestly, anything with the beach), and cruising on the back of her motorcycle alongside her partner in life, James. She has a special love shopping for all things Rae Dunn and collecting crystals.

Husky Life Love

Elijah Holman - Veterinary Assistant

Elijah grew up loving animals and spending as much time as he could outdoors. Having been born Georgia local, Elijah grew up right down the road from where Mills Animal Hospital resides.


After graduating from Etowah High School in 2017, he spent some time in undergrad at Mississippi State University and KSU. He has spent the last 4 years working in the vet field, starting his first year as a Kennel Assistant before working his way to Veterinary Assistant.


In his free time Elijah loves to hike, go off-roading, camping, or anything outdoors with his husky, Sago. His favorite part about the veterinary field is being able to work with amazing people while being able to care for the pets that make all of our worlds a better place.
