Our Team


Kerri Bell   (Head Surgical and Anesthetic Technician)

Kerri is our head surgical and anesthetic technician. She has been a team member since 2009 - she technically came to fill in for a technician on maternity leave and never left!!! We are so thankful to have her expertise in the surgery room and in the laboratory. She is the person that keeps all our machines and equipment maintained and up to date. It would be next to impossible to run Bay Breeze Animal Clinic without her by our side.

Kerri currently lives in Calallen with her husband -Mark and daughter - Ryhlei. She has a heart for all naked critters whether they are hairless Chihuahuas or sphinx cats. They have a full house that includes 2 hairless Chihuahuas (Louie and Daphne), 2 labs named Rhandi and Sophie, 2 lab mixes named Jase and Willie, 3 cats (Murphy Jack, Rascal and Maggie Lala). we can't forget the critters with scales - a Pied Python named Kallari and many exotic salt water fish.

We love having Kerri on our team!!!

Jessica Hayes (Technician)

Jessica is another one of our wonderful room technicians. She has been in veterinary medicine for 13yrs now (emergency, general practice and specialty surgery.) Jessica moved to Rockport in the summer of 2014 then made her way to BBAC shortly after. Jessica enjoys spending time with her family and an occasional fishing trip.

She lives with her Fiancé- Jason and son Carter, 2 dogs- Kat and Galoot.  

 Christy Day (Technician)

Christy is an all around technician doing rooms, assistant in dentals and helping with kennels. She came to BBAC in the fall of 2015 from Animal Control in Corpus Christi. Christy is a fast learner who has picked up so much in the short time she has been here. We love positive attitude and willingness to jump in and help where help is needed.  In her spare time she enjoys horseback riding, snowboarding, teaching her dogs new trick and going on cruises.

She lives with her 4 dogs (Spencer, Benjamin, Oliver and Ally), Cat- Zoey and horse- Case.


Jimmy Anders (Technician Assistant and Kennel Technician )                        

Jimmy  has been an amazing part of the BBAC team since 2010. He is always there to help anyone at anytime no questions asked. He has become known around the clinic as the "Cat Whisperer". Any fractious feline that comes in he is there to calm and secure the safety of staff and patient.  When he is not working or doing weekend kennels he enjoys numerous activities like fishing or skateboarding with his nephew.                                                               

Jimmy currently lives with his 2 furry four legged recused babies (Penelope and Hank) and numerous reptiles ranging from bearded dragons, turtles, exotic snakes and lizards.

Julie Rutherford (Receptionist) 

Originally from Denver, Colorado, Julie recently moved her zoo composed of 5 cats, 2 dogs, 2 guinea pigs, 4 birds, 2 fish, 1 snail, 1 mouse, 5 turtles, and a horse into the southern heat of Rockport, Texas! Like many others on our staff, she discovered her love for animals at a very young age. She began to pursue her dreams of caring for our furry companions by working at an animal shelter in junior high and then heading straight for a veterinary technician institution right after graduating from high school. Julie has currently been working in the veterinary field for 25 years! Between her experience in veterinary medicine and her spunky sense of humor, we are so thankful to have her on our team as a receptionist.

Outside of the scrub-life she loves to go horseback riding, biking, swimming, and cuddling with her favorite cat (we have agreed that it would be best to not disclose her sense of favoritism to her zoo)!
