Veterinary Assistants

Dannie Goglia & “Pippa” and “Ollie”

I have been employed at Rockdale Animal Hospital since May 2008. I have been working in the veterinary field since June 2006. In 2012, I was given the opportunity to act in a dual position of Office Manager and veterinary assistant. (I couldn’t imagine giving up all of my duties as an assistant.)

I grew up in Conyers, graduating from Heritage High School in 2007. We have since moved to Social Circle and share our farm with cats, dogs, chickens, bees, goats and donkeys.

Alisha Barrett & “Bama” and “Tucker”

I have been employed at Rockdale Animal Hospital since August 2017. I joined the Rockdale staff with almost two years of veterinary assisting experience. I am a proud mother of one human child, Kinsley, and two fur children, Bama and Tucker. I have always had a love for animals with hopes to be in this field one day. I can’t wait to see what the future holds in this career!

Keylee Wilson & “Koda”

I have been employed with Rockdale Animal Hospital since July of 2016. I have always loved animals and have been around them my whole life. I love to be outside with horses or just outside playing with the dogs. I have worked as a veterinary assistant since May of 2015 and absolutely love my job! I graduated high school in May of 2016 and am currently attending Penn Foster College to continue my education in the Veterinary field to get my Veterinary Technician license. I currently live with my three cats, Sophie, Ollie and Earl and also my three dogs, Jake, Koda, Gus and Drake.


Rachel Darwin & “Daisy”

Originally from McDonough, Ga, I moved to Covington, GA about 4 years ago and have been employed at Rockdale Animal Hospital since January of 2015. I graduated high school with honors in May of 2015 as a dual enrollment student and have since continued my college career at Georgia State University pursuing a Nursing Degree. Growing up, I was always outdoors either riding my horses or playing in the dirt. My love for animals has guided me in most aspects of my life, from competing on horses as a child to working in a vet office today.


Amber Qualls & “Diego” and “Penelope”

I have been employed by Rockdale Animal Hospital since January 2018. I had 3 years experience as a veterinary assistant and almost 6 years experience as a kennel technician/ kennel manager when I joined this awesome team! I am the proud mommy of 6 four legged creatures including my 3 dogs, Diego, Phantom and Chica, My 2 cats, Cabela and Oakley, and my Juliana mini pig, Penelope. I also have a human daughter that is a miniature version of myself 🙂 I have worked with animals for the past 8 years and I honestly can’t see myself doing anything else.

Kennel Assistants

Will Boggus & “Stewie”

One of our kennel employees has neglected to turn in his biography to us, despite repeated requests, so we decided to follow through on our threats to write it ourselves:

“Will is a unique, sensitive young man with many gentle qualities. He has varied musical tastes, with a particular love for Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift.  While he does spend some time playing soccer, cheerleading and flag dance, his favorite hobby is painting his nails. He is trying to perfect the best combination of “sassy” and “fresh” with an assortment of colors and patterns. When he finds just the right one, he plans to go public with them on Pinterest. When not pursuing his hobbies, he spends his downtime composing meditative melodies on his flute and piccolo. He is currently working on a new community service album entitled “Zen Tooty Flutey for the Sad Kitty-Witty,” which he plans to release to the veterinary community for anxiety-ridden cats everywhere.”


Sara Boggus & “Oscar”

I have been employed at Rockdale Animal Hospital since July 2014 as a kennel attendant. I currently attend the University of Georgia. I have one dog, Brandy, and a rabbit named Thumper. When I’m not at school or working, I enjoy playing soccer for RYSA, biking and spending time with family.


Alaura Kilgore & “Chewy”

I became an employee at Rockdale Animal Hospital in August 2014. Working in the kennel is challenging yet fun. I have enjoyed my short time working here so far. Being able to work with animals is an awesome opportunity. I have grown up with animals my whole life and I love animals. I share my home with my yellow Labrador retriever, Noodles and three cats: Tinker Bell, Squeaks and Trouble. I enjoy the opportunity given to me to work at Rockdale Animal Hospital.


Morgan Maddox & “Nova” and “Nala”

I joined the Rockdale Animal Hospital family November of 2017. I was born and raised in Conyers, Georgia and graduated from Heritage High School in 2013. My life outside of work is spent trying to keep up with my own furspawns: pups Nala & Nova and cats Rez & Alfred. Animal care is my passion and I’m blessed to be able to live my life doing what I love!


Alex Gilland & “Rosie”

I’ve been working as a Kennel Attendant at Rockdale Animal Hospital since August 2013. I went to Toccoa Falls College and played soccer there. I have a dog named Buddy and a cat named Kitty. I enjoy working with and caring for all the animals that come in.



Ashley Wilson & “CJ Maxwell”

I started working for Rockdale Animal Hospital in August 2016. I have two furbabies of my own named Rogue and Sierra. I have always had a passion for animals ever since I was a little girl and always dreamed of working with them. I have been a pet stylist for over 4 years now and I absolutely love my job. When I am not at work, I love to take my furbabies to the river to go swimming. I would love to get to know you and your pets so that I can pamper them!

Our Mascots



This big guy is full of character and even has one of the most squeakiest voices you will ever hear. He assumes everyone is his friend and will cuddle in the laps of accepting clients. His hobbies include bathing in public, yoga and stealing his clinic  sister’s food.



You will rarely leave the clinic without having run into a Chihuahua or two (or three). Tiny Rosie belongs to Dr. Crain. She is a clinic favorite, and we generally have to check people’s purses on their way out the door to be sure they haven’t packed a little stowaway!



Look, but don’t touch! Pippa belongs to our Assistant, Dannie. She is a very sweet, loving little girl, but like many Miniature Pinschers (ie: Min Pin), she is suspicious of strangers and does not want to be handled by anyone she doesn’t know. She had a bit of a rough start but she has won over the hearts of our staff. She pretends to be the receptionist most of the time.


“Squish, Squash or Inky”

This creature was brought in after a suspected dog attack. As a result, she has a non-visual eye that doesn’t slow her down! This trouble maker always has the RAH staff belly rolling with her crazy antics. She will hide behind walls/ doors only to sneak attack any unsuspecting victim. She spends most of her time helping with laundry and playing hide and seek.
