Our Careteam


Office Manager

For as long as she can remember, Taryn has had a passion for educating other people. As she was working her way through business school, something dawned on her: why not combine her passion for education with her adoration of animals by working in the veterinary profession? Now, she’s thrilled to serve the pets and animal owners of the Terre Haute area as Heritage Animal Hospital South’s Office Manager!

Originally from a small Illinois town about two hours south of Chicago, Taryn began here at the clinic in October of 2011 while attending school at Indiana State University. Every day, she gets to exercise her fondness for education by teaching pet owners how to be the best possible parents to their furry companions. Taryn also enjoys meeting new clients and their pets for the first time and learning something new nearly every day. There’s truly never a dull moment!

At home, Taryn has two Boxers, Beast and Rockstar, and a finicky cat named Fuzz. In her free time, she enjoys taking her dogs hiking, gardening, seeing productions at the theatre, and catching Bears or Cubs games.


Receptionist, Veterinary Assistant

Amanda grew up on a farm in Terre Haute, where she was surrounded by horses, dogs, and cats. For as long as she can remember, she’s been fascinated by animal behavior and the medical side of pet care. She gets to work hands-on with pets every day here at Heritage Animal Hospital South!

After earning her degree in business management, Amanda moved to Florida to study canine behavior and specialize in large-breed behavior modification techniques. She holds certifications in group training and advanced behavior modification. While in Florida, she secured a job working with chimpanzees, then moved back home three years later. Amanda started working at a local emergency clinic in the area, then joined the Heritage Animal Hospital South family in 2014.

Around the clinic, Amanda enjoys trimming pets’ nails and working in critical care situations. She’s also passionate about client education, and loves making a difference in the lives of pets by teaching their owners about proper care techniques.

Outside of work, Amanda loves spending time outdoors, whether she’s camping, fishing, riding four-wheelers or motorcycles, or relaxing around a bonfire with family and friends. She also loves spending time with her two dogs, Toby and Jada, and her three cats named Selena, Lynx, and Nubbs.


Veterinary Assistant

Destini was born in Branson, Missouri, where she developed an intense love of medicine early on in life. As she got older, her interest in biology started to blossom. Now, Destini gets to combine her love of medicine, her fascination with science, and her passion for pets as a Veterinary Assistant!

Destini graduated from Ivy Tech Community College with a degree in X-ray technology, then took a position here at Heritage Animal Hospital South as a receptionist. She began to work her way into the medical side of the clinic and has since become a Veterinary Assistant. Examining samples under the microscope is one of her favorite things to do, and she’s also fond of helping out with surgeries.

Destini, her husband, and their two sons share their lives with a trio of pugs: Jackson, Trinity, and Opie. They also have a Rottweiler/Labrador mix named Morgan and a cat named Mecko.


Kennel Attendant

Hunter is one of Heritage Animal Hospital South’s Kennel Attendants, and has worked here for nearly a year. She’s thrilled to contribute to the well-being of the area’s pets alongside her mother, who also works here at the clinic!

Hunter tends to the clinic’s boarding pets on the weekends and loves interacting with each and every animal who stays here. It’s not all fun and games, though—once, a huge Great Dane accidentally trapped Hunter in the corner while he was eating, and Hunter had to call someone to come let her out!

Hunter grew up in Terre Haute with her sister, Paige, and cheers for her local high school. Her family shares their home with two loveable dogs, Sparky and Mugsy.


Maggie and her family keep two dogs of their own at home, so she knows just how important pets are. Being able to give something back to animals by working at a veterinary clinic is very rewarding for her!

Maggie is a Terre Haute native, and lived in Florida for a short time before returning to Indiana. She joined the Heritage Animal Hospital South team in February of 2012, and especially enjoys watching pets grow up over time. She’s proud to work alongside her skilled coworkers, and truly considers them a second family.
Maggie and her husband have two children and share their home with Mugsy, a diabetic puggle, and Sparky, a lovable yellow Lab. Most of Maggie’s free time is spent watching her kids perform at their various activities—her oldest cheers for a local high school, and her youngest cheers, dances, and plays basketball!


Kennel Attendant

One morning, Nicole heard a knock at her door. It was a girl with a puppy, who said she couldn’t keep the animal. Nicole couldn’t turn her away—she ended up adopting the puppy and bringing it here to Heritage Animal Hospital South for its first appointment. As fate would have it, Nicole ended up applying for a job and has been here ever since!
Originally from a small town in Indiana, Nicole started here at the hospital in August of 2012. Her favorite part of the job is the differences in animal personalities that she gets to witness firsthand.
In her free time, Nicole enjoys spending time with her husband, their child, and their dog. She also likes outdoor activities like fishing and camping.

Dr Chuck, There are no words to let you know how much we appreciate what you do for our pets. You have always been there at a time that was unbearable for us.
