Mary Kay White worked at Sayers Animal Hospital for 9 years as a veterinary technician before going to work in the San Antonio area where she had the pleasure to work with Dr. Whippo.  It was not a hard decision to return to Sayers Animal Hospital where she truly feels like she is back at home.  Mary Kay is kept busy at home with her dogs, cats, and tortoise's. 

Evelyn LaFredo worked as a veterinarian technician in the San Antonio area with Dr. Whippo and joined the Sayers Animal Hospital team in 2011.  Her dogs "Buddy" and "Dyno", her horse "Chooey", and too many cats to name keep her busy at home.  Evelyn also volunteers her time to Homes For Pets rescue group fostering cats that are looking for forever homes!
