Terri

Terri

MANAGER

Terri (aka Motha Teresa) formed a special bond with the On The Spot Team when Dr. Reynolds committed to surgically repair her kitty’s leg that no other orthopedic surgeon would touch. She knew she could bring her non-traditional management style to a veterinary business that is full of empathy, compassion, and deep motivation to help hurting pets who otherwise may not receive care. Empowering the On The Spot team and supporting partnering veterinary hospitals is exactly what Terri does best, with as much grace as God can give her.
After earning her undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Mount Union, Terri completed a Master’s Degree in Veterinary Public Health from The Ohio State University. Since then, she has studied Veterinary Practice Management and now holds a certificate in Veterinary Business Leadership through the NAVC. With an interest in hands-on healing for pets and their people, Terri is a Certified Reiki Practitioner for both pets and humans.
Pursuing her long-time love for animals and their people, Terri began vet assisting during college breaks near her hometown of Newcomerstown, Ohio. She learned additional hands-on animal care skills of various species as an animal caretaker in the Mount Union Biology department. During graduate school at OSU, she was employed as a kennel worker and then thrived in the role as a client care specialist at several veterinary hospitals. With a short stint of teaching Human Anatomy & Physiology at the college level, she settled in the small village of Shawnee Hills and begin her career as a Practice Manager at a small veterinary general practice in 2012. She attributes her ‘ready to serve’ nature to her faith in God and from the example of her hard-working parents.
On her way to becoming a crazy cat lady, Terri & husband Mark share their home with 2 long-hair cats, Nellie & Samson. She and her husband rescued a California Alligator Lizard from their front yard, dubbed the name of Spanky. Terri loves unwinding with a good movie, sitting by the fire on the perfect fall night and will never turn down the chance to spend time relaxing outdoors, taking in all the energy of this beautiful earth in anything and everything related to water. With her life-long history of playing piano in the church, Terri enjoys sharing her musical talents during the holidays or on special occasions.
Terri has a special interest in music therapy for animals and will continue studying alternative healing therapies for pets. Any added therapeutic service to pets and their people will greatly benefit patient care and staff investment at On The Spot. After settling into the management role at On The Spot, Terri hopes to bring a new service to the team by providing support, training and veterinary management consulting to each location On The Spot travels to.
Kristin

Kristin

SCHEDULING & COMMUNICATIONS COORDINATOR

Loyal, kind and full-of-life, Kristin brings a little bit of sweetness and a whole lot of passion to the team at On The Spot! As the Scheduling & Communications Coordinator, Kristin loves the unique aspect of a mobile veterinary surgical team which affords her the opportunity to form close relationships with both veterinary hospital staff and pet parents. There is nothing more rewarding to Kristin than to be the point of contact from start to finish for the surgical care of furry families.
Kristin began her educational career at Marion Technical College studying Medical Assisting in anticipation of working in the human medical field. While preparing for her clinical semester, her interest peaked in the veterinary field. She was challenged to make a monumental decision to redirect her talents into a new career path taking care of pets and their people. She chose to take the risk and began her hands-on training as a Veterinary Assistant at a small veterinary general practice. Kristin has taken a special interest in the precious relationship between pets and their people and is in process of completing her Human-Animal Bond Certification!
Kristin followed her God-given desire to serve in the veterinary field for nearly a decade. She was first trained as a veterinary assistant with hands-on experience in wellness, medical and surgical care of pets and then pursued several years of client care and veterinary practice management.
Born and raised in a little town called Green Camp, Ohio, Kristin met her fun-loving husband, Matt, at 15 years of age and the two were married shortly out of high school. Kristin was a stay-at-home mom with her girls Cassidy & Bella while they slowly collected a pack of rescued fur babies! Their family enjoys spending time with Kenzie (Chiweenie), Nora Jane (Chihuahua), and their two playful felines Theodore Roosevelt and Rema Lema. Kristin spends quality time reading in her book nook, friend/family game night at their peaceful abode in Marysville and serving on the worship team at Marysville Grace. You can catch Kristin and her family kayaking in the reservoir in Marysville!
When Kristin transitioned to employment with On The Spot, she was ecstatic to accept the opportunity as the Scheduling & Communications Coordinator knowing her personal and career goals would be possible. She enjoys time on the road working with the team as well as being able to spend time at home working in the vicinity of her family. In her own words, “For me personally, there is no other job out there that is more rewarding than serving our clients, our patients, and fellow veterinary colleagues. I want to provide the absolute best possible service that I can, it is my goal.”
James, RVT

James, RVT

VET TECHNICIAN

Our very own “MacGyver”, James is an infinite pool of resourcefulness. He committed to building a non-traditional business in 2019 as Dr. Reynold’s right-hand man and filling a huge need in the veterinary field with a mobile surgery team. He jumped at the opportunity to join a small, family-oriented team as he was getting the best of all his interests – the veterinary medical community, problem-solving, and long-time servant heart for helping pets and their people.
Being the humble natured person he is, James is not one to display certifications or titles. Just know that he is one of the most talented veterinary technicians we have come across in terms of his skill set and compassion. Nearing a decade of experience, rest assured with his education and experience he will take only the very best care of you and your pets.
What drew James to the veterinary field? Growing up with an older pet was challenging for him in the best way. His first dog, Prancer, was the sweetest companion and taught him the value of the human-animal-bond. His childhood feline, “Kitty”, battled many ailments where James provided much needed TLC and helped keep her comfortable and happy until she crossed rainbow bridge. What sticks out in his mind the most, though, is a Dalmatian puppy named Spot who broke his leg. He was so nervous and scared that he would pee when you looked at him. From that moment on, James committed to providing a positive experience for all pets in whatever capacity that he could.  As life would have it, James met Dr. Reynolds in a general practice and together they joined forces to build a business of fixing legs for all creatures great and small. His years of experience in general practice in the veterinary field ultimately set him up for success with On The Spot, connecting with pet parents and helping lame pets run freely to their families again!
Born and raised in Gahanna and a graduate from the Tree of Life Christian School, James and his family now reside in Lewis Center. He was raised by parents involved in Christian Ministry that taught him what it means to have a true servant’s heart. One of four children, his twin sister describes James as, “inventive, loyal, and never satisfied with mediocrity”. You can catch James gardening, unwinding with friends and family, and spending as much time on the water as possible. He enjoys taking on “do-it-yourself” projects in his spare time, including restoring his boat. When he’s not busy with a project he is loving on his sweet ol’ pooch, Josey, who enjoys going for long walks and hogging the bed. James attends Worthington Christian Church where his father is the Care Minister.
James looks forward to working with a capable veterinary team with a simple mission fueled by honest leadership. His goal is to never lose sight of what is important – the care provided for each patient and their owners and to always respect the deep bond between the two. By working with On The Spot, he enjoys being able to provide a way for lame dogs to run again to pet parents who may not otherwise have been able to afford it. Being an affordable mobile business presents many unique challenges and James is continually providing solutions for even the toughest problems. Simply put, he’s here to help.
