Johnnie Taulbee
Registered Veterinary Technician

Registered Veterinary Technician, Johnnie Taulbee, knew she wanted to work with animals from the time she was a child. The fact that she stuck with that dream and graduated from the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash in 2016 is something she’s justifiably proud of.

Johnnie loves everything about her work – from looking after hospitalized patients to working with clients and even checking emails. She feels that every facet of her job has something different to offer or teach her, so she’s always excited to start each day.

In her free time, Johnnie enjoys reading, playing video games, and creative writing. She also loves watching anime, attending anime conventions, and cosplaying – dressing up as her favorite anime character. She has a close extended family and shares her home with her Mom, two cats, Simon Sebastian and Luna “Pookie,” and a bearded dragon named Aladar Anders.



Abigail Reed
Veterinary Assistant

Abby Reed joined the Evendale-Blue Ash staff as a veterinary assistant and is pursuing her degree in Veterinary Technology at U.C. Blue Ash.

What Abby loves most is that her job doesn’t feel like a job and allows her the opportunity to further her education while working. She has always felt a strong connection with animals and loves being able to help when they’re in need.

Abby is a proud veteran of the United States Air Force and shares her family’s home with two dogs, Duckie Douglas and Skoobie, and a black cat named Zezabelle.
