Anita R
Office Manager

Before entering the veterinary field, Anita owned a daycare. When she sold her facility, she began looking for a similar management job. As soon as Anita came across a newspaper listing for an open position at a veterinary hospital, she knew she’d found the perfect fit! She’s been serving the area’s pets and animal parents here at Forest Lane Animal Clinic for 25 years.
Anita is originally from Michigan. She began here at the clinic in early 1991 and has been serving as the Office Manager ever since. When she’s not busy scheduling appointments and checking clients in and out, she loves to jump in and help the doctors and technicians with examinations, surgeries, and bloodwork. Anita’s favorite parts of her job are meeting new people and reconnecting with long-time clientele.Anita and her husband have three grown daughters and are proud grandparents to three boys and two girls. They share their home with their grandsons and a variety of pets: they have a neurotic miniature Pinscher named Princess; two cats named Bobbi and Milo; an aquarium full of fish; hermit crabs from Galveston; and several parakeets.When she isn’t tending to pets’ needs here at the hospital or spending time with her own critters, Anita enjoys reading, going to the movies, and taking her grandchildren on fun day trips. She also likes to remain active in her church, and was recently elected Vice President of the Women’s Guild!

Bethany
Veterinary Technician

Bethany loved animals from the time she was a little girl, and always knew that she wanted to work with them in some capacity. With the encouragement of her grandfather, who reminded her that she wouldn’t be able to save every animal but could make a true difference if she put her mind to it, she decided to become a veterinary professional! Now, Bethany betters the lives of pets every day as a Veterinary Technician.
Bethany joined the Forest Lane Animal Clinic family in late 2015. She continues to learn something new every day, and never tires of the way her job keeps her on her toes. She’s also fond of working alongside her compassionate and skilled coworkers in a true team effort.At home, Bethany and her husband share their lives with a German shepherd, a pair of cats, and a one-eyed rabbit who loves bossing around all of the other pets. They are expecting their first child in the fall.

Daniel T
Practice Manager

Daniel is from Corpus Christi, Texas, and has lived with pets ever since he can remember. He spent many hours on his father’s small ranch while growing up, where animal care was a daily part of life. It didn’t take long for Daniel to decide that he would one day work with pets professionally!
In 1999, Daniel brought his own puppy here to Forest Lane Animal Clinic for the dog’s initial round of vaccinations. He mentioned that he was about to start studying in veterinary technician school, which led to an interview with the clinic owner. The rest is history! Daniel has worked here ever since, and now serves as the Practice Manager. His favorite parts of the job are working with his talented team, meeting new puppies on a regular basis, and seeing clients’ satisfied smiles when they are reunited with their beloved animal companions.At home, Daniel lives with his young son and daughter, as well as several pets. The family shares their lives with a loveable Golden Retriever, Maverick; a Chihuahua named Neza who rules the roost; and five fish named after the starting lineup of the Dallas Mavericks: Dirk, Chandler, Deron, Wesley, and Zaza.

Ryan W
Veterinary Technician

Ryan has owned pets nearly all his life. His own experience raising a pit bull from puppyhood taught him that any dog can be a great family companion—he’s always wanted to give something back to the pets who have given him so much. Ryan is able to do just that as a member of the Forest Lane Animal Clinic team!
Ryan was born in Omaha, Nebraska and lived for many years in southern Dallas. He was happy to begin his veterinary journey here at Forest Lane Animal Clinic in 2014, and loves helping the area’s pets and animal owners every day. Ryan’s ultimate goal is to help deepen and strengthen the incredible bonds between pets and their loving caretakers.In his time away from work, Ryan loves to spend time with his children and grandchildren, and especially enjoys telling his five-year-old granddaughter fun stories about his days here at the clinic. Ryan also likes playing and watching basketball whenever he gets the chance.
