T. C.

Client Services Representative

As a Client Services Representative here at 30th Street Animal Hospital, he gets the best of both worlds! T.C. has been serving the area’s pets and animal owners here for more than 10 years.

T.C. worked in the insurance field shortly after moving to Indiana, then applied at a local emergency pet hospital. It was through his connections there that he was introduced to Dr. Barnes and the team here at 30th Street Animal Hospital. He’s been here ever since! T.C. is particularly fond of greeting clients and patients at the front desk and jumping in to help out in the exam rooms whenever needed.

Outside of work, T.C. is an avid gamer and also likes to dabble in video production. He has four dogs and a cat at home.

Kim Taylor

Veterinary Technician

Kim moved around quite a bit as a child, and her family’s Cocker Spaniel quickly became her best friend in the world. She cannot remember a time in her life when she wasn’t caring for pets! When the opportunity arose for her to enter the world of veterinary care, she didn’t hesitate. Now, Kim is proud to serve the pets and animal owners of Indianapolis as one of 30th Street Animal Hospital’s Veterinary Technicians.

Kim began her animal-care journey in DeLand, Florida, where she started working for a boarding kennel. She would remain there for the next seven years, developing a foundational knowledge of veterinary medicine that serves her well to this day. Next, Kim moved to North Carolina and signed on with a local clinic, learning even more from her boss and close confidant who had previously worked as a professor of veterinary medicine at Ohio State University.

After relocating to Indiana, Kim joined the 30th Street Animal Hospital family in January of 2006. She’s been serving the pets and animal parents of the area ever since—Kim especially enjoys performing dental procedures and forming lasting bonds with her patients and their owners. She’s also an avid pet foster parent, and is proud to have successfully raised, fostered, and re-homed hundreds of kittens over the years!

Kim and her husband have six children between them, as well as multiple grandchildren. They share their home with one cat, Romeo, as well as three dogs. When she isn’t spending time with her family and pets or tending to the area’s animal companions here at the clinic, Kim can be found relaxing with a good book or tending to her garden.

Abbey Martin

Veterinary Technician

Abbey is a pet owner herself. She knows just how she would like her own animal companions to be treated, so she strives to impart that level of care and comfort to the pet parents of the area here at 30th Street Animal Hospital! Abbey helps pets daily as a member of the clinic’s Veterinary Technician team.

Abbey is originally from Rantoul, Illinois and attended Austin Peay State University in Tennessee, where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in agriculture with a concentration in veterinary technology. In total, she’s been working with animals professionally for more than eight years—she’s had experience in everything from shelter medicine and animal-control facilities to emergency and critical-care hospitals! Abbey’s favorite part of veterinary medicine, though, is getting to treat a variety of patients in general practice. She’s particularly fond of assisting with surgeries and performing dental cleanings.

When she’s not at work, Abbey enjoys playing the guitar, watching a good mystery movie on Netflix, and cuddling up with a good book and her two cats at home. Her feline companions are Lilo, a three-year-old female, and a two-year-old male named Salem.

Lindsay Curran

Client Services Representative

Lindsay decided to become a member of the veterinary profession for one simple reason: she’s always adored animals of all shapes and sizes, and wanted to give something back to the pets who have given her so much. Here at 30th Street Animal Hospital, she’s able to do just that every day! Lindsay serves the area’s pets and animal owners as a Client Services Representative.

Lindsay is originally from Florida but grew up here in Indianapolis. She launched her animal-care journey at another local pet-care facility, where she would hone her skills for nearly five years, and earned her animal behavior degree from Indiana University during that time. Lindsay interned with Bloomington Animal Care and Control and also completed an internship with the Indianapolis Zoo, where she got to work with wild birds and penguins. In September of 2018, she was thrilled to become a member of the 30th Street Animal Hospital family—Lindsay has been helping the area’s pets and animal parents ever since!

Lindsay’s interests outside of veterinary medicine include reading, acting, and spending time with her own pets at home. She has seven animal companions: Peanut Butter, Jasmine, Sophie, Clyve, Urby, Maleficent, and Sven.

Nicole Anderson

Client Services Representative

Like every member of the 30th Street Animal Hospital family, Nicole has adored animals ever since her earliest days. She’s also been helping others in the customer service industry for 20 years. When the opportunity arose for her to combine her experience in client care with her love for pets, she jumped at the chance! Nicole is a proud member of the clinic’s Client Services Representative team.

Originally from Asheville, North Carolina, Nicole graduated from high school as a state champion in basketball, and continued on to play college ball at Southern Wesleyan University in South Carolina. After playing for two years and dealing with a few injuries, she made the decision to take a new path—Nicole moved to Indianapolis, Indiana and launched her career in retail management. She would spend the next two decades making sure customers had a great experience each and every time!

When she’s not at work, Abbey enjoys playing the guitar, As the retail world continued to change, Nicole decided to look for another career path and get back to something she had always loved: animals. That’s when she joined the team here at 30th Street Animal Hospital! Nicole couldn’t be happier with her choice, and she loves to meet and greet pet owners and their adorable companions here at the clinic.

Nicole’s interests away from the office include camping, enjoying a great IPA by the fire, and hiking with her four dogs—Sammy, Bruno, Harley, and Belle. She also loves to cheer on her favorite basketball teams, the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Tennessee Lady Vols.

Charlotte Sherman

Registered Veterinary Technician

Ever since she was young, Charlotte has been passionate about animals great and small. Steve Irwin was her biggest role model, and she dreams of eventually working with wild animals in some capacity. While she considers herself a cat person, she still loves dogs, she also loves rats, ferrets, snakes, lizards, and birds. She’s been a vet tech since 2016, but recently joined the staff here in 2021.

Despite being born in California, she was raised in Indianapolis since she was 4 years old-even at a young age she wanted to work with animals, her first job idea being “pet detective”. Her first pet was a rat named Blackberry. She went through the Perry School District, and then went to International Business College’s Vet Tech Institute, graduating in 2015, and becoming licensed in 2016. She worked at a clinic down on the southside after graduation, until 2020, when the doctor shut the practice down, then started working at Indyvet. She missed the connection with clients that she got in GP, so when Dr. Speiser mentioned he had an opening for a technician at 30th street, she jumped at the opportunity.

When she’s not working at the clinic she’s playing video games, singing off key, or playing with her pets. She has 5 cats–9 year old male Bagheera, 9 year old female Sheva, 3 year old females Dinah and Freya, and 4 month old female Isis–and 2 dogs–10 year old male Chihuahua/Dachshund mix Toby, and 1 year old male mini poodle Merlot.

Emilee Rios

Technician Assistant

I am very passionate about the lives and well-being of animals.I have always wanted to make a difference in the world not only for people but for the animals. I went to school to become a medical assistant and phlebotomist. While working at a doctors office, i was volunteering at animal control. I later started working there. I started saving lives of the animals and doing my best to make sure they were placed in a perfect forever home. I have rescued small animals, 2 cats and one dog. I have a total of 4 dogs, 2 cats, 4 budgies, 1 guinea pig, and 2 ferrets. I am a mom of two wonderful toddlers. My goal in life is to improve the lives of all the creatures we share our earth with. We can all make a difference.

Jaclyn Speiser

Technician Assistant

Jaclyn’s passion for pets also began at a young age: with her first cat, an orange tabby named Peter. She quickly realized how important pets are to their owners, which is why she became a team member here at 30th Street Animal Hospital. When Jaclyn isn’t working, she can be found cuddling with her cat Pip or studying for exams. Although Jaclyn has a passion for helping out our furry friends, she also has a passion within the human medical field as well. Jaclyn currently is a nursing student at the University of Indianapolis, where she then hopes to continue her education to become a Nurse Practitioner. Although her path is quite different from the other employees here at 30th Street, her love for animals and her knowledge from nursing constructs the most caring technician assistant.

Kirsten Southwood

Technician Assistant

Hello, my name is Kirsten Southwood. I have been working at 30th Street Animal Hospital for little over a year now as a Veterinarian Technician Assistant. Prior to taking on this amazing opportunity here, I spent my time working at Animal Care and Control Services as an adoptions counselor and a volunteer. Before I got to where I am now, I was just a little girl working hard in school with hopes to save animal lives someday. I have come a long way from being a little girl with dreams. I have accomplished little over 3 years of college now where I will finish with a bachelor’s degree in Biology, and find myself attending Veterinarian Technician School this October where I will be adding onto my skills. Throughout my journey I have somehow miraculously accumulated two dogs, two cats, and two ferrets… and I don’t plan to stop there!

Rachel Stucky

Technician Assistant

Rachel has always had an interest in animals and nature, but she truly learned the impact of the human-animal bond when her family adopted their first dog when she was in high school. With a passion for life sciences, Rachel started college at Purdue University in 2017. Rachel was intending on going into medical research, but quickly realized she wanted a career with more spontaneity and hands-on work. She found a passion for veterinary medicine and has been working towards her goal of becoming a veterinarian ever since. She is currently a member of the Purdue University DVM Class of 2025.

When she isn’t at school in West Lafayette, Rachel spends time in her home city of Indianapolis, where her family still lives. Rachel isn’t sure exactly what type of veterinary medicine she wants to practice, but she is looking forward to whatever path she decides to take! Rachel loves working with the patients and clients at 30th Street on her school breaks. Her favorite parts of the job are learning new skills from the doctors and technicians, getting to know clients, and helping hospitalized patients make it back home.

In her free time, Rachel enjoys caring for her extensive houseplant collection, hiking in state parks, and spending time with friends and family. Rachel’s only personal pet is a ball python named Ursula, but she also spends time with her family’s labrador/pit bull mix, Jovie, every chance she gets! Rachel has a feeling that she will end up with another pet or two during her time in veterinary school.
