Wendy is SouthPaw Animal Clinic’s caring and compassionate Pet Nurse. She has worked with Dr. Chmelicek since 2007 and enjoys working closely with animals.

When You’ll Meet Wendy

When you call SouthPaw Animal Clinic with questions concerning your pet, Wendy will answer your questions and help you determine when an appointment or referral is needed.  She will also connect you with Dr. Chmelicek when needed. When you visit us at SouthPaw Animal Clinic, Wendy will be there to assist you and your pet throughout your visit. When your pet stays with us during the day, Wendy will make sure to spend some time snuggling with your pet so that they feel more like they are at home. Wendy is very knowledgeable and welcomes your questions. She is a crucial part of the SouthPaw Animal Clinic pet health care team.

Working With Animals – Not just ‘A Part of the Job’

Wendy’s love for animals extends into her home life, where she shares her zoo-like home with her fur-babies, Isabella Marie (Maltese-Poodle Mix) and Ernestine Olivia (Jack Russell Terrier-Dachshund Mix).

Wendy enjoys learning new things and watching documentaries.  She loves the Beatles, Little House on the Prairie, and is a hard core Whovian (Not sure what that is? She will be glad to enlighten you!)  Wendy is also full of wit and humor and will eagerly share it with you in the form of entertaining stories of her real life experiences.

Wendy works alongside Dr. Chmelicek everyday to provide nurturing and loving care for your furry family members.


Karla is SouthPaw Animal Clinic’s sweet and gentle Groomer.

She has been working as a Groomer since 2007 and she joined the SouthPaw Team in 2016. She is skilled in many different hairstyles and has worked with many different breeds. She is eager to help your pet look their very best.

She is the proud mother of a little boy and shares her home with 2 dogs and 2 cats.


Brock is SouthPaw Animal Clinic’s energetic and lovable Patient Relations and Scheduling Representative.

When you call or stop by SouthPaw Animal Clinic, you may talk to Brock.  He will be glad to take orders for food and prescription refills, he will help you to set up an appointment for your pet, and he can transfer your call to either Wendy or Dr. C if needed.

Brock joined SouthPaw in 2016 and is always eager to say “Hello!” to you and your pet.  His family is the most important thing in his life and he has a passion for photography and music.  He is a HUGE animal lover and shares his home with seven super spoiled pets of his own: 5 dogs and 2 cats.  He comes to us with a background in rescue and stray animals often find their way to his home.  His dream is to open an animal sanctuary someday and he believes that every animal deserves a home and love.
