Caylee Alexander

Kennel/Vet Technicia

Caylee is a 2020 graduate from Texas Connections online school. Her family has lived around Austin her whole life and a few years ago, she and her Mom moved from Kyle, TX to Bee Caves to help out some family.

A couple years back Caylee worked at a family friends vet clinic and learned a lot of the basics and met so many new amazing people. This grew her passion for animals and being able to help them. She loves being able to see the progress in the animals overtime after treatment, the new learning experiences in every case, and also the challenges of every case.

She's always known that she wanted to work with animals and give them better chances in life. Her first job gave her that push to go ahead with this profession and working here at Five Star has taught her so much and she loves coming in everyday to greet and help the doctors treat the animals. She feels like she has always known what profession she wanted to be in but growing up with animals and the lessons she got to learn everyday here have really pushed her to stay in this direction.

Her mom is actually just finishing school to become an Agriculture teacher and her leaning experiences have taught her so much. She's grown up with animals and for 10 years of her life they had owned cattle on their property in Smiley, TX. They also have a pig, chickens, and have had rabbits that she used to show in 4-H. This has made her passion for Agriculture and the animal science world burn brighter. Caylee is working to getting into college and she wants to work her way to getting her Vet Tech Certification and working off of that to gain more knowledge in the animal world and find what path in it fits her.

Haley Strong

Vet tech/Kennel tech

Haley was born and raised in Victoria, Tx, and she graduated high school in 2015. Since then Haley has been working towards a degree in Wildlife Biology. She moved to Austin, Tx, in March 2020 and plans on attending Texas State University.

Haley has always loved working with animals and in the past she thrived working at an animal rescue. Haley realized her passion for animals there and found how rewarding it is to help animals in need. When Haley moved to Austin, she wanted to focus more on animal health and care, which is what led her to work at a veterinary practice. Her favorite thing about working with animals in the veterinary industry is that she loves seeing the improvement from the first time the pet comes in, compared to their most recent visit where they are feeling much better.

She feels that the right profession is when you actually care about the work that you are doing and enjoy coming to work everyday. For her, spending time with dogs and cats has always made her happy and now this environment ensures that she can also assist the Veterinarian in helping the patient feel better and improving their quality of life.

When Haley is not at work, she is still surrounded by animals. She and her boyfriend share a border collie mix, a beagle mix, and a cat, all of which are rescues. When she is not working, Haley enjoys painting, taking the dogs on adventures, and recently they have been exploring our their home, Austin, Tx. She would love to continue working towards a degree where she can further her knowledge in animal care.
