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.
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.
Chaz is our Head receptionist at Cordova Station. She is the owner of the 2016 People's Magazine World's cutest dog. Chaz enjoys taking long walks to the mailbox (when she knows the mail has not come yet), stealing the last piece of cake, and checking daily to make sure her split ends are not getting any worse.
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.
Erika is one of our receptionists and has been with us since September 2019. She is genuinely one of the NICEST and most intelligent people you will ever meet, although her constant looks of surprise are often confusing people. She has been married since May 2019 to a Japanese speaking Hispanic guy… it is very confusing. She has two dogs named Maple and syrup. Erika is a very soft-spoken person but one time she DID ask everyone in the clinic to go to Sheridan’s Ice Cream Facebook page because her main goal in life is to win a year of free custard. We love her dearly.
Shayla is a part-time receptionist that has been with us since November of 2019. Shayla is a veteran who served 9 years in the US Navy. She has a daughter named Dusti, who is possibly the most mature, down to earth adult-like child on the planet. Shayla is also a full-time data analyst, coaches classes at Orangetheory Fitness Lakeland, teaches PiYO at the YMCA, and has 3 dogs of her own! She has the attention span of a lemur, and if you ask her about something that happened today, she’s probably already forgotten about it. Shayla is always on go and she *definitely* lives up to her high school superlative “most likely to hear her before you see her.
Jennifer has been working in our kennel area since July of 2019 and does outstanding with the animals. We nicknamed her “Magellan” because she often locks herself outside while letting dogs out. Jennifer recently told us she was working towards becoming healthier. She came back to work the next day and informed us she bought ONE single avocado. We have received no breaking news since that purchase. In her spare time, she enjoys hanging out with her kids, Hope and AJ, and giving back to her community. She loves to help others and aspires to one day get a bachelor’s degree in psychology.
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!
Madison has been working as a receptionist with us since June of 2019. Sheis in school full time at the University of Memphis, getting her degree in hotel and resort management. Because of her school schedule, she is mainly helping us out on Saturdays but we love anytime she is here. Madison speaks fluent Spanish and has an unhealthy love for Taylor Swift. In order to celebrate accordingly, Madison took the day off for T. Swift’s 2019album release in August. She cried about it upon her return.
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!
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.
