Meet Our Managers
Julie Krug, Office Manager
Dr. Krug’s wife, Julie, has worked on and off at the clinic since its inception in 1978, taking time off here and there to have children, hip and knee replacement and grandkids. She has two married sons, two grandsons and a granddaughter (would you like to see pictures?). When not doing things for the clinic, she enjoys being “Gramma”, watching movies, reading, cooking and baking homemade bread.
Jessica Sturlic, Clinic Manager
Jessica began her career in the Veterinary Field in 1996. She’s the fabric that holds the entire clinic team together. Her “memory of an elephant” is an invaluable resource clinic-wide from client/patient backgrounds to procedure/dosage details. She most definitely has a way with the patients, too! Jessica is married with 2 kids. She has 3 dogs, a cat, and a bird.

Meet Our Pet Care Team
Anthony Urquhart, Veterinary Technician
Anthony Urquhart joined the CVVC team in September of 2016 after having worked in this field since 1984, prior to his graduation from Watson Chapel High School in Pine Bluff, AR. It was only natural that he decided to work with animals since his Dad and 8 uncles did, too. He seems really “connected” with his patients and is exceptional in handling aggressive animals while keeping stress levels at a minimum for all involved. That’s an invaluable asset for any veterinary hospital. He and his wife, Shelia, have children and a greatly-loved Chihuahua that he found named Sofie. Anthony is also a big Dallas Cowboys and Mavs fan.
Melody Miller, Veterinary Technician
Melody has been living in Dallas throughout most of her life and attended elementary-high school right next to CVVC. She completed her Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences from Texas A&M University in August 2019. She has always wanted to become a voice for those who cannot easily express what’s bothering them, which is why she has never stopped aiming to be a professional in the veterinary field. Melody started interning to acquire knowledge and experience at CVVC in December 2019 and hopes to be accepted into vet school soon. She currently has a handsome, black cat she adores, named Romeo Meowington, and in her free time, she enjoys drawing, attending concerts, and eating chocolate!!

Rachel Guiterrez, Veterinary Technician
Rachel was born in Orlando, Florida but was raised in a quiet city named Apopka. Rachel was raised by her grandparents and they got visited by lots of wild critters. From black bears to little raccoons she always adored looking at them from behind her patio door. Rachel raised small animals from dogs to chickens and even little rabbits!
Rachel always knew growing up that her passion involved helping care for animals. Rachel graduated high school with her veterinary assistant certification and is currently working to get her veterinary technician degree! Rachel currently has a chihuahua named Courage and two cats named Nugget and Tokyo. Rachel looks forward to working with you and all of your pets!
Treniya Wadley, Veterinary Technician
Treniya is a native of Louisiana and moved to Dallas in May of 2021. Growing up, she always believed that her calling was to care for animals after losing her childhood dog/ “doggy best friend” in Hurricane Gustav.

January 2022, Treniya joined our CVVC team as a Vet Tech, while aiming to enter the Army and Vet school.
