Our Team

David

Practice Manager

My name is David Beckwith Jr. I am 31 years old. Ive been married to my beautiful wife for 11 years, and we have a fantastic, 10-year-old daughter. Ive been with West Hills Veterinary Centre going on 12 years now. I quickly realized not long after I started that this was my true passion and calling. If I’m not at work you can find me hunting, fishing, watching sports, or on the softball field with my daughter. My family is just as crazy about animals as I am that’s why we have seven dogs that are loved and babied more than they should be. Also, I am an avid Cowboys fan.

Megan

Megan grew up in Oxford, NC where her love for animals began early in life! She always knew she wanted a career working with animals which made veterinary medicine a perfect fit for her! Megan worked at West Hills since 2018 and is currently enrolled in a Veterinary Technician program as she aspires to be a RVT. In her free time she enjoys photography, nature, and spending time with friends, family and Sage her 4 year old Husky!

Tracey

Veterinary Technician

I have been working in the veterinary field for 26 years. I started out cleaning kennels and worked my way up to technician. I took a hiatus from veterinary medicine for a few years to work in the lab animal industry, but decided to come back to private practice. I love working with animals and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. When Im not working I enjoy spending time with my family. I share my household with my family and my small collection of pets, which include 3 dogs, 4 cats, 2 guinea pigs, and a ferret.

Tiffany

Customer Care Representative

Who doesn’t love animals? They bring a joy to us without ever expecting anything back except for love and affection in return. When Tiffany made the transition from being a pharmacy technician to becoming a CSR within a veterinary hospital almost 2 years ago now, it literally changed her whole perspective on her life at the time. She became a part of a close-knit work family that have weathered highs and lows, always having one another to turn to. This job also introduced her to her sweet and excitable dog, Lupin, who she adopted from Vance County Animal Shelter. He’s an Aussie Mix that she probably should’ve named Tigger for how much he bounces around and he brings a smile to her face even on the hardest of days. Tiffany can honestly say that working with animals is more than just a passion, it’s where her heart is. She is glad she took the chance she did to apply here at West Hills because it’s allowed her to work alongside people that have treated her like they’ve known her for years, even on her very first day back in February of 2019. Home is where the animals are and Tiffany has found it.
