Dr. Ashley graduated from Ross University, School of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. Many, many years before that (at age 3) she set her sights on doing something she always wanted to be…a voice for the voiceless. Prior to being accepted into veterinary school, she worked as a veterinary technician for 11 years, both at a small animal hospital and an equine emergency hospital. Dr. Ashley grew up with many animals and actively showed her horses for most of her childhood. Upon obtaining her DVM, she practiced as a relief veterinarian for the first 7 years. She practiced at multiple hospitals and learned different business models, policies, and protocols. Dr. Ashley is married to her entrepreneurial business partner Paul for the past 15 blissful years. Together they have 3 children: Brittany, Travis, and Alyssa; and their first grandbaby Emma. On many occasions, you will find them helping out at the clinic and passing out goodies to your fur-babies. In her spare time, she volunteers with the family dog Brawlin, who is a certified therapy dog, to local elementary schools and nursing homes. She also enjoys trying new recipes and cooking for her family and friends, and gardening. Her practice motto is to “treat common conditions uncommonly well.” She will always answer all your questions and make sure you understand why your pet needs certain treatments or procedures. We will discuss what to expect for long-term care through all your pet’s life stages. Dr. Ashley looks forward to assisting you soon, where you will be greeted with a friendly smile and a handshake.
Dr. Ogorodnikova (also known as "Dr. Kova") graduated from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2021. During her first year as a veterinarian, Dr. Kova worked for a mixed animal practice in Clarkston, WA. In her pre-vet school days, she spent her time working at her local dairy farm and spending time at the Alaska Zoo where she worked as a zoo-keeping intern.
Originally from Alaska, it has always been Dr. Kova’s dream to move to Texas to be closer to family. After bringing their first daughter, Monica, into the world in March 2022, Dr. Kova and her husband, Zhenya, decided it was time to finally move to the great Lone Star state. In her free time, Dr. Kova enjoys exploring nature with her chihuahua, Mercy, gardening with the company of her two cats, Meeshka and Kit, and spending as much time as she can at the beach with her family. Dr. Kova is excited to meet you and help keep your pets happy and healthy. She is passionate about offering personalized care and tailors her medicine to meet your pet’s individual needs. She can’t wait to treat your pets with the love, respect, and dedication they deserve!
