The Animal Clinic Staff Profiles

Jacqui Porter

Practice Manager.

I am originally from England and moved to America with my husband and son in 2003.  In the UK I served as a Police Officer for 10 years, then upon moving here owned and ran a lawn care company with my husband.  I then worked at Universal Studios in The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter for 2 years before joining The Animal Clinic team in February of 2015. I have a great love for animals and we have always had a dog and horses in our family, I used to compete in 3 day eventing back in England.

I really enjoy the Florida Outdoor life, going to the beach and walking our super dog Max.

Juli King

Head Surgical Nurse

I have been employed by The Animal Clinic since 1990 and have seen a lot of changes within our profession. The most important reason for my love of veterinary medicine is the changes I have seen in the quality of care that we provide for our pets. My duties consist of caring for surgical patients, radiology, ultra sound, dentistry, assisting doctors and nursing care. This job involves a lot of continuing education, training, communication and compassion. I am originally from Ohio and moved to Florida when I was 2 years old.  Given a choice to work anywhere else "The Animal Clinic" would win hands down every time. The staff and the clients are wonderful.
