Dr. Susanne Seward

She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Arkansas in Civil Engineering and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Florida.

Dr. Seward enjoys traveling and spending time outdoors with her husband and two daughters. She currently has one cat, three dogs, 2 snakes, 2 geckos, and 4 mice. She just bought a few acres so the numbers will probably keep growing!

April

Office Manager

April started out volunteering in veterinary medicine about 23 years ago (1999). She knew she had found her niche. She enjoys nature, cooking, reading, spending time with her family (furry and non-furry alike) and friends whenever she is not working.

Jessie

Veterinary Technician

Jessie was raised around animals and knew she wanted to work with them as an adult. This led her to enroll in college, which she continued for 4 years earning a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science. In her free time, she enjoys time with her family (human and fur babies alike), outdoor activities, and just relaxing in between daily chores.

Kenda

Veterinary Technician

Kenda is native to the Harrison area and began working at AVS during her senior year of High School. She met and married her loving husband, Nolan, in 2017. Kenda and Nolan welcomed their son, Magnus, in 2021. In her free time, she enjoys long walks with Magnus, hiking, gardening, exploring the Buffalo River, and reading a variety of fiction books. Kenda and her family have two dogs and one cat.

Crystal

Veterinary Technician

Crystal has lived in the area all her life. She enjoys being outdoors. She lives with her husband, Chris, and fur baby Rudy. If she’s not working at Affordable Vet or on the family farm, chances are she’s “gone fishing.”

Skyler

Receptionist

As a young child Skyler grew up surrounded by many different breeds of dogs. Her family owned dog kennels where they raised and sold many fur babies for 15 years. With this love of being around them and snuggling all of them, it inspired Skyler to work at AVS so she would be able to continue the experience of seeing all the different types of animals that come in. She has taken initiative to learn more about the wonderful families that bring them in and give them the help they deserve. With the help of her trusty companion, Akern, and all the amazing coworkers that she has, it makes the workplace seem more like a family and a home than just going to work.

Alyssa

Receptionist

After moving to Oregon for two years, Alyssa relocated back to Northwest Arkansas and has been employed at AVS since that time. She resides with her fiance, Evan, and their three fur babies, Emma, Billy, and Fuse.

Combined with her love and appreciation for animals, her previous work experiences in customer service have provided a strong foundation to gain and learn new skills through taking the initiative to gain the knowledge needed to work in the field of animal care as a veterinary receptionist.

When she is not working, you can find her spending time with Evan, playing video games, and cuddling with her furry tails.

Magnus aka “Maggie”

Clinic Baby/Mascot

Magnus, also lovingly known at AVS as “Maggie”, was born in 2021 and has been a fixture at the clinic since he was 4 weeks old. If he is not eating snacks or watching his favorite shows, he is being toted around by either Kenda or his Auntie Reggie.

Maggie enjoys spending time in nature and playing in the water. He is also Rick Astley’s number one fan and is always soothed upon hearing the song “Never Gonna Give You UP”. While he is the newest arrival to AVS, he has proudly secured his position as “Employee of the Year” indefinitely.
