After a hard day on the trails, the hikers return home to snuggle with a couple of cats :)

Dr Eier

Dr. Jake Eier

Jake Eier, DVM

  • Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine  2022

The term "goat" describes Dr Eier in a couple of ways.  First, he has a passion for caprine medicine and owns a show goat business.  Second, he may be the 'Greatest Of All Time' when it comes to associate veterinarians!  

Calm, compassionate and knowledgeable, his skills don't end with caprines.  Dr. Eier excels at companion-animal medicine and is beloved by our staff, clients, and patients.  

An indispensable member of our team, we are lucky have Dr. Eier at Hocking Hills Animal Clinic.   

There are many of us here to help you and your pets.

The doctors can't do it alone!  We have additional friendly and compassionate part-time doctors as well as an outstanding support staff:

  • Jennifer Hayes

    Words can hardly describe how excited we are to have Dr Hayes on our team!!   Dr Hayes is an experienced emergency-medicine veterinarian.  She has worked in a part-time capacity at our clinic for several years and continues to helps us out when we need her specialized skills.  

  • Mindy Holland

    Dr. Holland is a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine and has been practicing throughout Central Ohio for over 30 years.  She's an exceptionally compassionate person who puts her patients first.  Though she keeps trying to retire, we keep calling her in!  When she's not working hard at the clinic, Dr. Holland is volunteering for Hope Blooms in Logan and bringing a smile to the face of anyone she meets!  

  • Cristi S.
    Veterinary Nurse - Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT)

    Cristi is a 2014 Honors Graduate of Bradford School of Veterinary Technology and is a Licensed Veterinary Nurse (Registered Veterinary Technician).  She is extraordinarily passionate about veterinary medicine and finds it to be a rewarding career.  Cristi's superpowers include mega-multi-tasking, perpetual patience, and ultra-organizing. On the weekends, she enjoys working on the farm with her family in the company of many animals - especially her beloved, pampered chickens.  

    Cristi has rescued many wayward animals, but the most outstanding is a rotten beagle who  knows how to 'keep things interesting!”

  • Dixie W.

    That flash you see is Dixie!  With experience in emergency medicine, Dixie is quick to care for our patients.  She has been with Hocking Hills Animal Clinic since 2015 after moving to Ohio from Arizona.  A graduate of Mesa Community College, Dixie has been working as a veterinary technician since 2006.  She’s honed her skills in emergency medicine, specialty practice, and general medicine.  

    When not at the clinic, a Chihuahua named Tug (a.k.a. The Dog Father), is her boss.  When Tug gives her some time off, she enjoys country-western dancing with her husband, raising her family, and playing with her German Shepherd, Alma.

  • Jesse H.
    Veterinary Nurse - Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT)

    During the 2020 pandemic, Dr. Moore went in search of the perfect addition to a busy and growing team.  She wanted someone who was patient and compassionate with animals, had great clinical skills, and would appreciate her endless sci-fi references.  Fortunately, her search yielded a skilled, experienced RVT, who - most importantly - get's her geeky jokes.  And, thus, Jesse, joined the team.  An English Major and 2012 graduate of Columbus State Community College Veterinary Technology program, Jesse has been honing his skills in medicine for years.  He is also the companion of a happy boxer named, Goose.  

  • Elizabeth S.

    Able to leap tall Dachshunds in a single bound, more powerful than a toenail-resisting pug, and able to spout veterinary knowledge faster than a speeding greyhound, it's Elizabeth!  With 15 years of experience in veterinary medicine, her compassion for animals is unparalleled and her commitment to our clients and patients is exemplary.  When not saving animals, Elizabeth enjoys hiking, reading, disc golf, and concerts.  

  • Rebecca M.

    Rebecca is the cheery voice you hear on the other end of the phone line.  With experience as a nationally-registered pharmacy technician as well as a dental assistant, Rebecca knows her way around a medical office.  When she's not answering calls, scheduling appointments, filing, or performing the myriad of tasks that being a receptionist at a busy clinic demands, you can find her at car events in her exhaust-enhanced, JDM Acura.

  • Brooke P.

    It's fair to say that Brooke has a passion for animals.  She has rescued animals of many species.  If you ask her, she'll tell you she has a small “zoo” including reptiles, hedgehogs, Guinea pigs, and dogs.  Brooke knows how to handle the unique challenges of working in veterinary reception.  Prior to joining our team, she was a receptionist at a large, corporate vet practice in Fairfield County.  Brooke is also an entrepreneur!  When not at the front desk you can find her clothing boutique at pop-up shows.  In the rare instance she's not working, look for Brooke in her Jeep Wrangler with the doors off cruising around town! 

  • Julie B.

    We couldn't do it without Julie!  She has done it all!  With previous experience as a Veterinary Assistant, a Veterinary Receptionist, and owner her own business, she understands the vital role she plays in our practice.  Julie has had a love affair with animals her entire life.  And, being a graduate of Hocking College and a true entrepreneur, she realized her dream of owning a boarding facility, where she enjoyed caretaking of cats and dogs for several years.  Now, when not behind the desk, she pursues her true love - horses.  Julie volunteers at an Equine Therapy Center and she bravely engages in barrel racing with her favorite horse!

  • Jan Cecil
    Office Staff

    Jan has been at Hocking Hills Animal Clinic for more than 20 years, as has truly been the heart of the practice.  She's earned some time off, so she recently decided to reduce her hours.  No longer running the front desk, Jan is behind the scenes doing scheduling, bookkeeping, and other essential work. 

    Jan was raised in McArthur and resides there with her husband and Retrievers.  She has four adult children and a grandchild.  When she’s not at the clinic, Jan enjoys reading, traveling, and country music.
