My name is Heather Marie Blackburn, I have been in the veterinary field as a Veterinary Technician for over 20 years. I worked at large, small, and exotic practices. I also spent several years working at a cat-only practice here in the Houston area. I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology. I moved to Lafayette, LA shortly after graduating and worked for National Marine Fisheries for a few years, before returning to be a vet tech. I moved back to Texas a few years ago, after starting a new life with one of my classmates from Port Isabel High School, Arthur Cochrum III. We share our home with AC and our 5 pets! We spend our spare time watching AC play football and our Aggies on Saturday! We plan on getting our own piece of the Texas Coast one day, so we can play on the beach and fish every day!
Hey all, I am Tabitha and I was born and raised in Montgomery, TX. I started with Fish Creek Animal Hospital shortly after they opened! I have been working in the vet field for 10+ years and couldn’t imagine doing anything else! When not at work I enjoy spending time with my kids and 4 mini schnauzers.
Hi y’all my name is Douglas Radabaugh. I have been a veterinary technician for 16 years with 18 years experience in the veterinary industry. Animals and medicine have always been a passion of mine since I was young. When I’m not tending to your flock I enjoy time outdoors with my two children and our two pets Kitana and Jasper.
Hey y’all! My name is Kristin and I’m one of the techs here at Fish Creek Animal Hospital! I’ve only been here since March 2023, but I’ve been in the veterinary field since 2013. I graduated from Sam Houston State University in 2018 where I double majored in Criminal Justice/Victim’s Studies, and minored in Sociology – but working with animals is where my passion really lies. My free time is mostly spent reading, hanging out with my Shih Tzu Sadie and taking her everywhere I can, or watching reality tv. I really look forward to meeting you all and taking the best care that I can for you and your fur babies!
Hi! My name is Tayler. I was born & raised in the small town of Hollister, Ca. I got my bachelors degree in Biology at Chico State. I started volunteering at a local animal clinic during college & then moved my way up to vet technician. I moved to Texas in the summer of 2018. I graduated from the LSC Tomball Veterinary Technology program in Spring of 2022. I passed my VTNE in Dec 2022 and officially became a Licensed Veterinary Technician. I am also fear-free certified. I’ve been in the veterinary field for about 5 1/2 years now. I can’t imagine being in any other field. I do like dogs but I am a cat lover at heart. In my free time, I like spending time at home with my husband Dyson & our son Walker. We have two dogs, a cat, & a turtle.
Hey y’all, My name is Hunter, I started at Fish Creek in February 2023, before starting here I shadowed and worked as a kennel technician for two years. I’m currently working towards getting my Veterinary Technician License,and plan to dig deeper into Veterinary Medicine in the future.

Hi, I’m Frances Aaron, born and raised in Waller, Texas. I am a mother and grandmother as well as a pet parent. My husband and I live in Plantersville, where we have chickens and pigs. We also have a Chihuahua named Selma. I have been in the veterinary field for about 15 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. I love helping animals as well as being here for the owners. I do my very best to make each person who walks through our doors feel as if they came to visit family. I’m always a text/call/or email away to help where it’s needed.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids and love to see my grandsons. I also enjoy fishing (although I don’t eat the fish) and camping as well as cooking and being surrounded by my family and friends. My perfect day would be family/friends enjoying the sun on a lake or riverbank making memories that last a lifetime.
