Meet Our Team
Dr.Kyle W. Sanders
Dr. Kyle W. Sanders is our main veterinarian and the owner of Cordova Station. He has been practicing veterinary medicine for 35 years. When he is not working, he enjoys showing horses and riding his zero turn lawnmower. You won't catch him without a Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop Tart, Mello Yello, or his Clic Reader Magnetic glasses around his neck. He truly is one of a kind.
Dr. Steve Warner has been practicing with us for 12 years. He is a dedicated turkey sandwich connoisseur and when he is not here he enjoys playing tennis, canoeing, and going to the rifle range. Dr. Warner walks everywhere he goes with a purpose and if you are in his way he WILL run you over. If you look closely, you can see flames coming off the bottom of his shoes.
Chaz is our Practice Manager at Cordova Station. Chaz has been with Cordova Station since January of 2012. She is the owner of the 2016 People's Magazine World's cutest dog. Chaz is known for many things. She can destroy a clean space in 30 seconds, will only eat Reese’s sticks for breakfast, and stays in shape by always running late.
Robbie has been teaching at Cordova Station since August 2007. Robbie is our most informed employee on what is happening outside the office. If you want know what is going on in America or Mecka-lecka-stan, she is your gal. When she is not busy being treasurer of the #782 Trekkie Lovers Alliance, Robbie loves cooking and playing board/card games with her husband Kevin. She has a dog named Shambler and two cats, Alton and Steve.
Tammie is one of our kennel techs and she has been with us since July 2005! Tammie enjoys shopping when she isn't entertaining us at work. No other information can be shared, this employee's information is classified. DO not ask because we cannot say. IF you do need to talk to Tammie please call the office line and say 'the eagle has landed' and she will get back with promptly.
Peggy is also a technician at our office. She has been with us since March 2016 and has one English bulldog at home. On the weekend Peggy enjoys going dancing, belting out Shania Twain songs, and watching MMA. She was the 2008, 2012, and 2015 Boot Scootin' Boogie regional champion. Peggy was very opposed to having her picture posted, but we love her anyway.
Dominick has been our groomer since June 2005. He loves gardening when he isn't here beautifying. He has one silver tipped Persian cat at home name Vladimir. In his spare time Dominick (or Constantine as he likes to be referred to) loves shopping for castles, detailing his car, and trying to find the sneaky person who parked in his spot.
Jake is one of the technicians that has been with us since August of 2019. You can recognize Jake because he is ALWAYS wearing a smile. This is most likely because he got to meet Carrie Underwood in person AND have his picture taken with her. I hear she has that effect! Prior to joining our family, Jake used to be a Spanish teacher to high school students. You can often hear him lulling the animals by serenading them in a sweet Spanish song. We don’t know his secret but he must have one considering all the animals, people, AND Carrie Underwood to love him!
Amie is one of our technicians and has been with us since November of 2019. Amie is a true southern girl who enjoys riding her ATV and horses,camping, hiking, and spending time with her family. Amie has 4 dogs, 1 horse, and a Buffalo. She is Chief of Buffalo Troop 41212 out of Moscow, TN. She also enjoys writing in her leather bound journal while observing her “pet” wolf named, “Two Socks.” We nicknamed her “*Iȟá s’a*,” which means, “Smiles a lot” in Sioux since she always has a smile on her face. We love Amie!
Christopher Gerbrand Bailey
Christopher Gerbrand Bailey (yes…he wanted his full name), is one of our technicians and has been with us since November of 2019. Chris began working here when Cordova Animal Hospital closed after working there for 20 years. There isn’t a lot that we can tell you about Chris that he hasn’t already told you in grave detail. He could pretty much have a conversation with drywall…while underwater. Chris lives with his wife and their adorable chihuahua that they recently adopted named Chula. When we asked Chris if there was anything about himself that he hadn’t already told us 17 times, he said that he raised snails for 13 years and he loves to race them every other Sunday. He also said that he once ate his weight in Godfather’s pizza. We love to give him a hard time, but the clients ADORE him, and with good reason! His positive attitude and goofiness are contagious. We think we will keep him!
Michelle is one of our receptionists and if she ain’t crocin’, she ain’t rockin’. She has been in the veterinary field for many years but with Cordova Station since October of 2020. Michelle has a wonderful husband and two dogs named Bella and Thumper. Some of her favorite things include buying shoes she does not need, taking excessive days off, and telling us that she is tired. She is an avid Hello Kitty collector and has an Amazon shopping addiction. Michelle’s husband is not a fan of her addiction, but she is accepting the consequences and choosing joy.
Brittany is one of our kennel technicians. She has been with us since August of 2020. Brittany loves bathing dogs and helping the technicians restrain. She describes herself as quirky and nerdy. 95% of the time we have no idea what she is saying. We are reading the same book but are definitely not on the same page. In her spare time Brittany loves playing My Little Pony video games and watching Anime, although it often makes her cry. She has a fear of all things driving related, especially 18-wheelers and left-hand turns. Nevertheless, she always makes it to work in plenty of time with Starbucks in hand. We are grateful to get to enjoy her bubbly personality and constant confusion.
Tara joined our team as a technician in February of 2021 but has been in the veterinary field for 26 years. We feel as though there is a lot to unpack here, but with Tara being our most quiet technician, quite frankly, she has not unpacked any of it. We do know Tara loves to travel with her husband and three kids and hates red scrubs. In the near future, we will circle back to this bio.
Ra- Ra- Ree, kick them in the knee. A former Mississippi State cheerleader turned vet technician, Elise is one of our newest staff members. In her spare time, she enjoys hanging out with her dog Archie and giving great life advice. Our favorite tip so far has been “no matter how sad you are, never cry yourself to sleep the night you get a spray tan”. If she is not busy helping the doctors you can often find her in the corner being non-confrontational and quietly eating her daily Baskin Robbins shake. Elise is a great worker and is the definition of dependable. Shortly after she started in February of 2021, we had a massive snowstorm. Chaz is a terrible manager and totally forgot to call and tell the ‘new girl’ we were closed. She still showed up to work even with 12” of snow on the ground. A true queen.
Stacey is an honorary member of Cordova Station Animal Hospital. She is a mastermind of all things behind the scenes and the greatest Integrator Operator. Stacey recently received the Academy Award for “most feared yet most respected with a single introduction”, which sits in her living room next to her 8-foot 5-inch taxidermied alligator. On the weekend Stacey finds serenity in long drives home (knowing she will get to make the drive again in 48 hours), eating peach pie, and counting multi-doctor hospital inventory alone. We only have her with us for 30 days, but I would imagine she is ready to leave as her back is sore from carrying the weight of this clinic. Stacey also collects honey from multiple beehives she maintains at her home, and we think she is truly the bee’s knees.
We work on an appointment basis. We see walk-ins and dropoffs, however, we honor appointments first. Please keep in mind emergencies do occur and can upset our schedule. If you would like your pet to be seen by a specific doctor, please let us know when scheduling your appointment.
