Cedar Creek Animal Hospital - Our Doctor and Staff

 

Dr. Sue Johnson (Owner)

Yes, Dr. Johnson went to A&M!  ...Although not right away. Her undergraduate degree is from UT Austin (Hook'em Horns!), and she spent a few years after that working, traveling and studying other things.

But after stumbling across a vet school open house at Cornell University, Dr. Johnson discovered her true passion and returned to school, graduating from Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine in 2002 (Gig'em Aggies!).

From there she went on to spend 6 years with a small animal & exotics practice in Santa Clara, California. Then she was lured away to the United Kingdom where she spent another 6 years practicing veterinary medicine, this time in a picturesque English country village. And while she originally worried the pace would be too slow paced for her, Dr. Johnson found it to be anything but.

Eventually, though, she grew homesick enough to finally return to the US, moving first to the southern California desert for a couple of years and now finally back to north Texas where she grew up and still has strong family ties. And she's finally putting her roots back down, having become a practice owner - something she'd dreamed of for years.

Outside of work, Dr. Johnson's life currently revolves almost exclusively around her young daughter (and stolen moments with a good book) but used to (and will hopefully one day again) include hiking, biking, camping, diving, traveling and all the other adventurous things one does when unencumbered by the demands of an active 6 year old.

Cassidy Crawford (Veterinary Technician)

Cassidy joined our team as a full veterinary technician in June of 2018 after having previously worked at another vet clinic in McKinney as a kennel/veterinary technician.

After five years of working in boarding and grooming, Cassidy discovered her passion for the medical aspect of pet care. Her current goal is to complete her Licensed Veterinary Technician (LVT) Degree.

Cassidy currently shares her home with 3 red heads of the feline variety but has a huge extended family that includes 4 dogs, 4 cats, 2 birds, 2 turtles and many-a-fish.

Jennifer Hill (Veterinary Technician)

Jennifer joined our team in February of 2019, deciding to pursue her passion for veterinary medicine. She’s currently in school striving to obtain her LVT, with the intent to possibly specialize in a (TBD) area of veterinary medicine. 

She has a special love for all of the exotic patients we see, and has owned a plethora of exotics over the years. She’s kept reptiles, birds, small animals, and a multitude of dogs.

There is no official head count of how many pets she currently cares for but unofficially the last count was somewhere north of 30!

Kalena Foy (Veterinary Technician)

Kalena is currently a student at Cedar Valley College in Dallas. She recently received her certificate in small animal assisting, and is working towards her LVT.

Before joining us at Cedar Creek, Kalena worked on a farm with exotics and livestock. She also taught both children and adults about a variety of animals and their proper care.

In the future, Kalena hopes to travel around the world and assist rehab and conservation teams with the care of threatened and endangered animals.

For the moment, Kalena resides in McKinney with her lovebird, Kai, and her small collection of rescued reptiles.
