Team Work Makes the Dream Work

Jocelyn Reiter, LVT

Who I am and What I Love

Jocelyn is our lead technician at Valley Walk Animal Hospital and comes to us with a plethora of education, knowledge, and experience. Upon graduation from Eastside High School, Jocelyn earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Veterinary Technology at the University of Washington, Seattle. She is passionate about animal dental health, preventative care, and surgical protocols (making sure your pet is safe and sound). Jocelyn's favorite things include her better half, Warren, her spunky brindle pup, Reggie, and, possibly above all else, the New Orleans Saints! Jocelyn enjoys attending Saints games, a good cup of coffee, hiking, camping, and is always up for a 5k or a good FitBit step challenge!

Dylan Long

 Dylan is a 2015 graduate of Greer High School and a 2018 graduate of Clemson University with a Bachelor of Science degree. He will begin veterinary school at the University of Georgia August 2019. Dylan is a lifelong resident of Greer and plans to return to the area upon completion of his DVM. In the meantime, we are fortunate enough to have him as a veterinary technician and understudy absorbing all of the knowledge possible. Dylan is thorough and conscientious with each pet he meets, which will prove invaluable throughout his career. You will occasionally see Dylan and Dr. Holtzclaw balling it up in the parking lot and you're welcome and encouraged to cheer - choose sides appropriately.

Jessica Greene

Jessica is a biology major on the pre-vet track at Furman University and plans to graduate in 2020. Jessica began interning with us our first summer and loved it so much she asked us to pay her. Of course we agreed! She graduated third in her class at Greer High School in 2016 and currently works as a veterinary technician. Jessica loves Mexican food, animals (particularly whoo? owls, that's hoo), and Disney! She lives with Lance and Layla, her beautiful miniature Schnauzers and is always studying! Jessica has traveled to China as part of a study abroad program at Furman University and plans to also study abroad in Honduras and the Galapagos Islands. She played softball for twelve years before she decided to focus on plans for vet school. Jessica said, "I love adventure, but there is nothing better than relaxing at home with my doggies!"
