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.
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.
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.”
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.
We are currently participating in the international INSPIRE study, evaluating an investigational medication to manage Chronic Kidney Disease in cats so they might live healthier lives.

Gloria got a job working with pets right out of high school. Even after graduating college with a computer programming degree, she decided to follow her heart and continued in pet care. Currently she is owned by one whippet named Rain. She tends to gravitate towards water… oceans, lakes, pools, hot tubs and bath tubs.
Amy knew from an early age that she wanted to work with animals. She has worked in various aspects of the veterinary medicine industry including volunteer, kennel tech, veterinary assistant, and customer service. Amy joined the FVVH CSR team in October 2017 and shortly after, her duties expanded to Lead Customer Service Representative. Amy loves providing the best possible service and experience to our clients and patients and she loves making a connection with every client and pet that comes through the doors.
Growing up on the family farm started Amy’s love of animals. She moved to North Carolina in 2005 and absolutely loves this area and couldn’t imagine calling anywhere else home. Amy started as a volunteer and worked her way to where she is today and has enjoyed every second of this adventure.
Amy currently resides in Youngsville, NC with her husband Connor and their wonderful and sweet animals. They have a Carolina Dog named Gunny, a DSH kitten named Sarge, and DSH cat named RaRa who are the light of their lives and bring them so much joy.
Sharesa grew up in North Raleigh with her parents and younger sister on a small family farm with their dog, 3 horses, and cats. Sharesa’s passion for animals started young when she joined Eno Triangle Pony Club and became active in 3 Day Eventing. She joined the Falls Village Family in 2010 and worked part time in the kennel while working toward Nursing School before deciding that animal medicine was her passion and started full time as a Veterinary Assistant. She helped in creating and expanding a low stress environment for clients and their furry family members and became Fear Free Certified in 2016.
