Our Careteam

Ginny Rigsbee

Practice Manager

As early as she can remember, Ginny knew she wanted to work with animals in some form or another. After beginning her career as a veterinary assistant, she became interested in the business aspect of veterinary medicine. Now, she works as Falls Village Veterinary Hospital’s Practice Manager and has served in the animal care industry for over 30 years!

Ginny grew up in Southern Pines, North Carolina with her parents and two brothers. She first became fascinated by the animal care world as a child, when she would visit the local veterinarian’s office with her mother. After finishing high school, Ginny attended North Carolina State University before focusing on the business side of the industry and turning her focus to practice management. She was hired here at the hospital in August of 1984, and has happily been tending to the needs of Raleigh’s pets and animal owners ever since.

As a Manager, Ginny feels that she’s done her job well when the clinic has a busy month, pet owners are happy, and pets are feeling their absolute best. Her favorite part of the day is witnessing the hospital running like a well-oiled machine during peak business hours! In addition to her duties here at the clinic, Ginny is the practice management chairperson for the North Carolina Veterinary Conference held right here in Raleigh and also runs her own small business braiding and clipping horses.

Ginny and her husband, Kenny, have a daughter named Jordan and two sons named Brian and Justin. The family shares their lives with a dog, Bailey; five cats named Jinx, Cleo, Zeke, Zoey, and Butter; and a horse named Cotton.

Stephanie Richards

Kennel Manager

Stephanie’s love of animals was developed as a child. She used to visit her father during his lunch breaks at the maintenance department at NC State. While there, she would visit all the animals at the vet school. Her family also had many animals at home, from livestock to house pets.

Stephanie has been with Falls Village since 2000, and we are proud to have her step up to be the head of our kennel department beginning in 2016. In addition to her experience in animal care, Stephanie also has a background in Early Childhood Development and has worked in daycare. Her nurturing spirit and generous heart make her a perfect fit for both of these fields.

It’s no surprise that Stephanie makes a priority of spending time with her family: her high school sweetheart and husband of 22 years, 2 children, 4 dogs and a cat. She also enjoys museums, learning about history, going to the lake, and watching movies. Her motto is “To have fun and enjoy life no matter what life throws at me.”

Jennifer Price

Communications Manager

Jennifer has spent her career in various aspects of the animal care industry. She joined the Falls Village team in 2013 as a technician. Recently, her duties have expanded to take over the role of Communications Manager. It’s a fulfilling combination that allows her to continue to perform the hands-on aspects of animal care as well as engage in developing materials to help our staff and our clients take the best care of their pets.

Jennifer first became interested in the veterinary field as a child. From an early age she had a love of horses that was greatly inspired by reading Walter Farley’s Black Stallion series. Upon realizing that becoming a racehorse jockey was unlikely to be in her future, she considered other careers in the animal care industry. Veterinary medicine seemed to be a good fit, given her aptitude for science.

With this view in mind, Jennifer attended Berry College, a small private school in Rome, Georgia. In addition to earning a Bachelors in Animal Science, as well as minors in Equine Science and in Business Admin, Jennifer gained hands-on experience at the on-campus equestrian center and working dairy. More recently, she has completed courses in Veterinary Technology. Throughout the course of her career thus far, she has held a variety of positions from kennel attendant to managerial.

“In the years that I have spent as a technician, I’ve discovered a real passion for client education. I enjoy being able to utilize my artistic side to create handouts and brochures that assist clients in understanding the conditions that may affect their pets and how to care for them, as well as recommendations for preventative medicine.”

While not technically a North Carolina native, Jennifer has lived in the Raleigh area since before she was able to walk. With hometown pride, she cites it as an ideal location, with its easy access to both the mountains and the beach, and the larger cities of Charlotte and DC also a reasonable drive away. The large number of events – cultural, sporting, and educational – make it a great place to live.

In her free time, Jennifer nurtures her creative side by playing the flute, singing alto in her church’s choir and “tying knots” (as a friend calls her knitting, crocheting, and sewing). Jennifer is also enthusiastic about her recent improvement of her swimming skills and learning to water ski.

As Communications Manager, Jennifer is in charge of the Falls Village Facebook page, so if you have any fun pet photos or stories send them her way! jenniferpricefvvh@gmail.com

Julie Pellicore

Study Coordinator

Julie has filled a variety of roles since first coming to work at Falls Village in 1999. When our hospital began participating in clinical trials for various animal health companies in 2014, Julie took the opportunity to transition into the role of Study Coordinator.

In this position, Julie keeps the various trials organized and recruits qualifying participants. She ensures that we follow Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines and all the rules established by the FDA and USDA for the health and well being of enrolled our patients. Julie is passionate about being a part of trials that advance veterinary medicine and help pets live healthier lives.

When she isn’t busy keeping us all pointed in the right direction, Julie enjoys spending time with her 3 dogs and her cat, as well as human family members.
