My name is Miranda. I am Tennessee born and raised. I like to spend summers at my river property and winters by a bonfire. Spending time with family is very important to me. I have two dogs; "Nali", a Pitbull and "Oscar", a Dachshund. I love all kinds of animals and I am very thankful to get to work around them.
Jennifer brings with her a passion for understanding animal behavior and for client communication, education, and understanding. She has only been a part of the HHAH family since 2013, but has worked within the veterinary field since 2007. She wants to help ensure your furbaby gets the very best, and that you leave every communication satisfied with your pets care, and with the answers to your questions.

Emeline started with the Harpeth Hills Animal Hospital family in 1994 and is our most senior Kennel Attendant. She is usually the one responsible for bathing cats and dogs that either board with us or need a therapeutic shampoo/dip, or just to freshen up. She and her husband of over 23 years are the proud parents of 2 Chihuahas named Lil' Buck & Jazzy and 2 cats named Bridgette & Fancy and 2 blue poison dart frogs. She enjoys NFL football, horseback riding, coloring, and spending time outdoors with her husband at their camp in Coble, TN.

Minnie may have come from humble beginnings (she was a homeless stray) but through sheer will and absolute cuteness she has become the matriarch of Harpeth Hills Animal Hospital. No bug is safe within the walls of our hospital, thanks to Minnie's single minded perseverance! Minnie has a real knack for knowing which dogs she can greet nose to nose and which dogs she has to steer well clear of. Her two-legged co-workers all love her; each and every one will jump to get Minnie anything she wants. When Minne isn't supervising hospital employees, she loves watching birds as she lays in a patch of sun coming through the front window.
