Sharon Bean
Sharon Bean
Receptionist
Animals have played a huge role in Sharon’s life ever since she can remember. She was always the one who cared for her family’s animal companions, including horses, steers, and even a pig. When the opportunity arose for Sharon to put her adoration of animals to good use in a veterinary setting, she knew that she couldn’t miss her chance. That’s when she signed on as a member of the All Animals Veterinary Hospital family!

Sharon is originally from Washington State, and worked in a hardware store for many years before getting into the aluminum business. She moved to Georgia to help her sister take care of their aging mother, and it wasn’t long before Sharon had decided to rejoin the workforce. She brought her own pet here to see Dr. Holton, and found out about an open position. The rest is history—Sharon has now enjoyed more than 20 rewarding years as a veterinary professional!

Sharon’s interests away from working include cooking—she especially likes cooking with her whole family for the holidays!—and doting on her own pets at home. She shares her life with two dogs: Lolli, a Chihuahua and a total momma’s girl, and an energetic Miniature Pinscher named Tank.
Cheri
Cheri
Receptionist
Cheri grew up in Gainesville, Georgia with her parents, six siblings, and plenty of pets. She’s loved animals ever since her earliest memories! After spending many years in another industry in which she didn’t feel fully appreciated, Cheri decided to make a change and come back to what she had always loved doing: taking care of animals. Now, she’s a proud member of All Animals Veterinary Hospital’s front-desk team.

Cheri first heard about an opening here at the hospital through a coworker’s husband, and she didn’t waste any time applying. She officially became a member of the clinic family in August of 2019, and couldn’t be happier to serve the pets and animal owners of the area as a part of the front-desk team. Cheri makes it her mission every day to keep everything running like clockwork, and she particularly loves to chat one-on-one with pet owners and keep them updated on their beloved companions’ progress.

When she’s not at work, Cheri enjoys remodeling her new home, boating and relaxing on the lake with her boyfriend, and raising her puppy.
Diana
Diana
Receptionist
Diana was fascinated by medicine while growing up, and she’s always had an innate instinct to help others in whatever way she could. She had never considered animal care as a career path, but when the opportunity arose for her to dip her toes into the world of veterinary medicine, she knew that she couldn’t pass it up. Diana signed on as a member of the All Animals Veterinary Hospital front-desk team, and has enjoyed every moment since!

Diana is a Dawsonville native and worked in the retail industry for a time before becoming an assistant preschool teacher. She applied here at the hospital after hearing about an opening from a close friend, and the rest is history—Diana has been greeting pet owners and their adorable companions at the hospital’s front desk ever since.

When she’s not helping others here at the clinic, Diana can be found enjoying a hike in the great outdoors, fishing, or spending quality time at home with her family. She has one dog: a Chihuahua mix named Charlie whose favorite things to do are relax on the couch and inhale his food.
Tiffany
Tiffany
Veterinary Technician
Tiffany is a pet owner herself, and her family always kept animal companions around the house while she was growing up. For her, caring for animals is simply in her nature. Why not turn that into a fulfilling and exciting career, Tiffany thought, by becoming a veterinary professional?

Tiffany is originally from Stone Mountain, Georgia and launched her career at a local animal hospital there. She would continue to help pets and their owners at that clinic for 14 wonderful years! She moved to Cumming in August of 2011, and started as a member of the All Animals Veterinary Hospital team in March of the following year. Tiffany serves as a Veterinary Technician, and she has a special interest in communicating directly with clients and getting to know the area’s pet-owning families. She also has a soft spot for our feline companions, and is particularly adept at helping nervous or angry kitties to feel more comfortable.

Outside of work, Tiffany likes reading and spending quality time with family. She and her husband, Brian, have two sons and several pets: a loveable cat named Samantha and a pair of dogs named Paco and Grace.
Tessa Swisher
Tessa Swisher
Registered Veterinary Technician
Tessa grew up on a Las Vegas ranch and started helping large-animal veterinarians during her teenage years. Those early experiences caring for animals made one thing clear: Tessa wanted to devote herself to bettering the lives of the earth’s creatures in whatever way she could! That’s why she became a veterinary professional.

Tessa began working at a Las Vegas animal hospital while earning her Veterinary Assistant’s degree. After moving to Dawsonville, she signed on here at All Animals Veterinary Hospital in 2013 before returning to Las Vegas for a time to earn her Associate’s degree in veterinary technology—Tessa worked in general practice during the day and in an emergency care facility at night during her studies.

After moving back to Georgia in 2017, Tessa was happy to join the All Animals Veterinary Hospital family once again the following year. Now, she’s the clinic’s Head Registered Veterinary Technician! She’s particularly fond of dental work and loves to see the night-and-day difference a good teeth cleaning can make. Tessa also likes orthopedic surgery and diagnostic work, but her favorite part of her job is getting to meet new pet owners and their adorable companions.

Tessa’s interests away from the office include hunting and fishing, riding dirt bikes and four-wheelers—she raced for 10 years and even competed in the Women’s Pro Class mini grand-prix in Las Vegas!—and spending time with her family at home. She’s the proud mother to two wonderful daughters, and the family shares their lives with two dogs named Roper and Gunner as well as a flock of eight chickens.
Matt Holton
Matt Holton
Veterinary Technician
For Matt, veterinary medicine runs in the family—his father is Dr. Edward Holton, and his twin brother James works alongside him here at All Animals Veterinary Hospital. Matt knew early on that he wanted to do the same thing as his father and help animals to live happier, healthier lives! He couldn’t be happier to gain hands-on experience in the veterinary field here at the hospital while applying to veterinary school.

Matt is a Dawsonville native and a recent graduate of the University of Georgia, where he obtained his Bachelor’s degree in animal and dairy science. He plans on continuing his education at veterinary school in the future! For now, Matt serves in all areas of the hospital and enjoys the great variety that every day brings—on any given day, he might help to birth a litter of puppies or treat an infection in a dairy cow, and that fast-paced environment keeps him on his toes.

In his free time, Matt likes spoiling his own dogs at home. He shares his life with two Australian Shepherds named Taylor and Chloe.
James Holton
James Holton
Veterinary Technician
James has quite literally grown up right here at All Animals Veterinary Hospital—he was six months old when his father, Dr. Edward Holton, opened the clinic doors for business. It wasn’t difficult for James to gain an innate passion for the world of animal medicine, and he’s decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine himself!

James grew up in Dawsonville, where he frequently went on house calls with his dad and raised and showed cattle. Those experiences only deepened his desire to help as many animals as he possibly could. He attended the University of Georgia and graduated with a degree in animal science, and is now a veterinary student at the University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. James looks forward to graduating with his Doctorate in the next few years and launching his own career as a licensed veterinarian!

When time permits between his busy school schedule and his time here at the hospital, James enjoys cheering on the Georgia Bulldogs and spending time with his own dogs, Chloe and Taylor, at home.
Andrew
Andrew
Veterinary Technician
When Andrew’s childhood pet had an encounter with a passing vehicle, an after-hours veterinary clinic administered lifesaving medical care. He knew that he wanted to do the same for others’ pets!

Andrew is a Georgia native and first started in the veterinary world when he was a freshman in college. He began as a Kennel Technician and worked his way up from there. Now, he’s proud to serve the area’s pets as a Veterinary Technician! Andrew especially enjoys orthopedic work and studying laboratory samples.

Andrew’s interests outside of work include sports like baseball and football, hiking, fishing, hunting, and enjoying the company of his own pets. He has two dogs: Waylon, a Labrador mix, and a Spaniel named Amelia.
Emily Boone
Emily Boone
Veterinary Assistant
Growing up, Emily jumped at every opportunity to volunteer at an animal shelter or pet-sit for a friend or family member. She’s adored caring for animals all her life, and one thing became clear the older she got: veterinary medicine was the perfect path for her. Now, Emily gets to gain hands-on experience in the veterinary world here at the hospital, and plans on applying to veterinary school in the future!

Emily was born in Texas but lived all over the country thanks to her father’s job in the United States Air Force. She was still in high school when she secured her first job at an animal hospital, serving as a Kennel Assistant. Emily has been involved in the veterinary world ever since! She joined the All Animals Veterinary Hospital family in May of 2018 and couldn’t be happier to gain real-world experience in the world of pet care.

The thing that Emily likes most about her job is that she never stops learning—the challenges of the field keep her on her toes on a daily basis. Emily has aspirations of becoming an exotic-animal or wildlife veterinarian in the future, and she even had the opportunity to study wildlife ecology and field techniques in South Africa in the summer of 2018. Emily came face-to-face with elephants, rhinos, large cats, and other incredible creatures, and it only made her more convinced to pursue veterinary care!

Emily’s main interest outside of veterinary medicine is music. She’s an avid piano player, and has recently started playing professionally at a number of events. Currently, she’s fostering a cat named Spooky.
