Ben Windward Animal Hospital

 BEN – Practice Manager

Though I enjoy working with all the animals we see at the clinic, my favorite animals to care for are the reptiles. Lately, I have been learning the more technical aspect of treating animals.  I am currently attending college to further advance my career in veterinary medicine. As the Practice Manager, my goal is to do my very best to assure the Staff & our patients are all happy and the clinic is running harmoniously.

Erica - Windward Animal Hospital

 Erica- Front Office Manager

I have a huge passion and heart for animals. I have four cats one dog and a turtle. Seeing all of the different species of animals is amazing to me. I love the fact that I get to see and love on so many different breeds and types of fur babies. Thank you for allowing us to spend time with your babies and enjoying the kisses and love they give us.


 Delanie – Veterinary Technician

I am the Resident Veterinary Technician. I have always had a love for reptiles, birds and furry friends too. I currently have two snakes and Diego, a Yellow-Headed Amazon. I have a huge heart that allows me to care for every animal, whether scaled, furry or feathered.


 Dani – Veterinary Assistant

I completed my school’s Internship program with Windward Animal Hospital and my love of animals helped me to decide to become a permanent part of the team. My favorite part of the job is seeing animals do a 180 after treatment. It makes me feel as if we made a difference.

 Bri- Veterinary Assistant

I was raised in southern California surrounded by many different animals in all shapes and sizes. When my family and I moved into the South, I decided to make them my career and get as much experience as I could. I love working with Dr. Colby and the staff at Windward Animal Hospital.

 Giovanni – Veterinary Assistant

I was born and raised in Texas and moved to Georgia in 2014. I have always loved animals since I was 5 years old and knew I wanted to dedicate my life to helping animals feel better. I had many wonderful pets growing up such as Chihuahuas, Sugar bears, Bearded dragons and so much more!

 Enjoli – Veterinary Assistant

I moved to Georgia in 2023 from Maryland (raised on the playground is where I spent most of my days). I have been working with animals since 2019; starting at a dog daycare then moving to shelter work and finally making my way to animal medicine. I am building upon my knowledge with exotics here at Windward.  


John – Kennel Technician

I love see the varying animals that come through our doors. I am knowledgeable about the animals that we see and their wild counterparts. I love to play with the puppies and kittens whenever time allows. I dedicate my time to making sure the animals stay safe and are well cared for while at the clinic.
