MEET THE TEAM
Licensed Veterinary Technician
Crystal was born in to an animal loving family. From a very young age she had a special bond with pets and animals were naturally drawn to her. It only made sense for her to end up in the veterinary field.
She spent over 13 years providing medical care for pets. She has now moved into a management role so that she can help shape the way your pet is cared for.
When not working, she can be found baking, crafting, and spending time with her family.
Gwyn joined the Animal Eye Specialists team in January of 2016. She has worked in the veterinary field as a receptionist since 2009. Gwyn started out in general practice, then worked in internal medicine and oncology for a short period. Gwyn has always had a love for animals, art and reading. In 2014, Gwyn started a small pet artwork business combining two of her passions. “I start and end every piece with the eyes. The eyes tell you so much about the personality of the animal.” Working in animal ophthalmology seemed like a natural transition. “Eyes are so much more complex than you would think. I am really enjoying learning more about the health and anatomy of the focus of my artwork.”
Gwyn has three hounds named Lola Longbottom (Basset Hound mix), G-Ya (Rhodesian Ridgeback), and Axle (Rhodesian Ridgeback). She is also owned by a very bossy cat named Popi Cat Extraordinaire.
Michelle is a native of Corsicana, Texas. She attended Navarro College and Texas A&M University at Galveston, then moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. She has worked in the veterinary field for over 14 years, including emergency and critical care specialty practice, general practice, and 8 years in ophthalmology. After 15 years in Las Vegas, she returned home to Texas with her husband to be closer to family.
Michelle loves working in ophthalmology and was excited about finding Animal Eye Specialists. She looks forward to exploring this field more. In her spare time Michelle loves to shop, especially at farmer’s markets, and spending time with (aka spoiling) her nephews whom she adores, as well as her friends and family. Michelle and her husband reside in Dallas with their dapple dachshund, Einstein and a cat named Dweezel.
Keiko was born and raised in Carrollton, Texas. She has worked in the veterinary field for 3 years, and joined the Animal Eye Specialist team in February of 2022. Since joining the team, Keiko has enjoyed learning something new about eyeballs everyday.
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with friends, going to live shows, and expressing herself creatively. She has three fur babies: Luna a chihuahua, Oliver a Shih Tzu mix, and Yuki a Chihuahua mix.
