Stephanie is another Westbank local, born and raised right here in Gretna. She attended Academy of Our Lady for high school and went on to graduate from the Veterinary Technician program at Delgado in 2013, when she became a Registered Veterinary Technician. Growing up, Stephanie had a perpetual soft spot for animals, so she jumped at the opportunity to spend every day caring for animals. In her free time, Stephanie enjoys gardening and spending time with her family.
Stephanie brings many years of experience with her to WVH, and we know just how lucky we are to have such a seasoned RVT working with us!

Amy is our newest member of the Westside Veterinary Hospital team. She was born and raised in Marrero, Louisiana, where she currently resides with her husband and two young sons. Her love and compassion for animals, as well as the well being of their owners, lead her to the veterinary field in 2010. She has been working as a veterinary assistant and receptionist ever since! When she is not working, she enjoys spending quality time with her family and their three dogs, in addition to spending time outdoors.
Amy may be a new face at WVH, but we’ve known (and loved) her for several years now. Amy is patient, kind, and always has a smiling face – all qualities we admire her for having, especially as the receptionist on our team. We know our clients are in good hands, whether it be when they call on the phone or when they walk in the door – Amy will always welcome them with open arms!

Harli was born in Marrero, LA, but she was raised between Louisiana and Mississippi. She graduated from Hahnville High in 2015. She attended Nicholls State University for BSN and Business Administration until 2018, when she realized her dream to work in Veterinary Medicine was a reality – and she’s worked in vet med ever since.
Harli brings a wonderfully motivating “go-getter” attitude to WVH, always looking to work harder and take the best care of our patients that she can. We love her confidence and eagerness to jump in and help in any situation – days can get crazy in a veterinary hospital, and Harli remains ready for the action!
When not at work, Harli likes to spend time with her boyfriend, family, and friends, rewatch her favorite show (Grey’s Anatomy) and, of course spoiling, her “children”:
5 dogs: Athena, Nyx, Scout, Lexi, Bea
5 cats: Oliver, Idgie, Peanut, Butter, Jelly
1 fish: Fuego
She is pictured here with Athena and Nyx.
Beth was born and raised in Terrytown, Louisiana. It wasn’t until she and her husband moved into Gretna that she knew she had to work at Westside Veterinary Hospital. Her love for animals stems from always watching Animal Planet as a child. She knew from a very young age that animal care and conservation were her passions. Her life aspiration is to one day travel to Australia and visit Steve Irwin‘s wildlife conservation park! She has been working in the veterinary field as a receptionist and veterinary assistant since graduating from the University of New Orleans in 2014. When she isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her husband, friends, and listening to music.
Beth comes to WVH loaded with experience – and it shows! We love her warm attitude, and we know our clients will, too. She is welcoming and so easy to talk to, not to mention extremely knowledgeable when it comes to veterinary medicine! We could not have asked for a more perfect fit to join our exceptional team.

Morgan was born and raised in Luling, Louisiana. She graduated from Hahnville High in 2014, and she started her career in the veterinary world as a receptionist in 2017. She has since fallen in love with working in a veterinary clinic. This comes as no surprise, though, because her family would tell you that if Morgan could, she would adopt every animal under the sun! When Morgan isn’t at work, she loves to spend her time exploring national parks and hiking with her husband. She has a major passion for the outdoors and seeing new wildlife.
Morgan has easily transitioned into her new role as a receptionist at WVH. Her outstanding customer service and communication skills help to make all of our clients feel that they’ve known her forever. She is cheerful and energetic, and it’s so refreshing to be greeted by her smiling face when you walk through the doors at WVH.
Morgan currently lives in Marrero with her family and the many animals in their crew: four cats (Lucy, Jax, Kitty, and Simba), two dogs (Coral and Fossil), and two rabbits (Lilo and Stitch).
