Staff of Park Lane Veterinary Hospital

Tonya Tonya Ramsey, Practice Manager

Tonya has been a Practice Manager with our team at Park Lane Veterinary since June of 2022. She’s known for her true dedication to the clinic and her compassion for our family of clients and patients. Her favorite aspect of the job is the fact that Dr. Holland keeps everyone on their toes with new technologies in veterinary medicine.

Her duties as Practice Manager include overseeing all operations in the clinic setting, medical records oversight, vendor accounts, inventory management, implementation of safety protocols, and maintaining a positive and enriching team culture.

Tonya believes that the Park Lane team is a hardworking group with a passion for providing the highest quality of care. “This clinic has a very unique family culture among its team members and I think his spills over into our client base as well. That ‘family doctor’ feel is harder to come by these days with large corporate run clinics becoming more prevalent.”

Tonya has one seven-year-old red merle Australian Shepherd named Joey who is also a talented disc dog.

When she’s not working, she loves spending time with her family and traveling with her husband when they can manage to get away. Artsy by nature, she loves any activity that allows her to let her creativity shine!
