Our Careteam

Elizabeth
Co-Owner, Practice Manager
Elizabeth worked in the telecommunications industry for many years before becoming a veterinary professional. When she met her husband, Dr. Tom Tischer, she realized that an opportunity had presented itself—here was a way for Elizabeth to help not only pets themselves, but their loving owners as well! Now, Elizabeth is proud to make a real difference as Neshoba County Animal Hospital’s Practice Manager.

Born and raised in Florence, MS, Elizabeth entered the telecommunications field early on in life; her parents owned an independent telephone company. After living and working in New Jersey, Alabama, and Kentucky, Elizabeth met Dr. Tischer in 2002. The couple was married in 2004 and moved to San Antonio, Texas, where Elizabeth started helping out at the veterinary clinic that her husband was working for at the time.

It didn’t take long for Elizabeth and her husband to realize what a good team they made in the animal care industry—they decided to pursue their dream of owning their very own veterinary practice. Elizabeth found her life coming full circle as the pair returned to Mississippi and opened Neshoba County Animal Hospital! Here at the clinic, she’s particularly fond of interacting with the hospital’s clientele and helping pets give birth to their litters.

In her time away from work, Elizabeth enjoys tending to her chickens and roosters at home, reading, knitting and crocheting, painting, gardening, and spending time with her family. She has two sons: Richard, who serves in the United States Navy and currently lives in Florida with his wife and six children; and Lewis, who lives in Tennessee with his wife and two young children.
Mallory
Customer Service Representative, Veterinary Assistant
Mallory’s own pets at home are like siblings to her and her brothers. She’s never taken for granted the lifelong love, loyalty, and companionship that our animal friends provide. For Mallory, being able to give something back and nurture those bonds for others is a dream come true. She’s a proud member of the Neshoba County Animal Hospital family!

Mallory is thrilled to launch her journey in veterinary care right here at the hospital. She started working at the clinic in May of 2017 after being referred by a relative of hers who had previously been a member of the team. Mallory loves the team-centered, collaborative environment that she gets to work in, and nothing beats the feeling of helping a family’s pet live a happier, healthier life.

When she’s not at work, Mallory likes going to the beach with friends and family, watching college football, and doting on her own pets at home. She shares her life with a toy poodle, Ruby, Lu the Golden Doodle, and a cat named Portia.
Amy
Groomer, Receptionist
Shortly after rescuing an adorable Pekingese/poodle mix named Cinderella, Amy took her new canine companion to her local vet’s office for a checkup. She ended up working for the veterinarian, sparking a passionate career in animal care that has persisted to this day! Amy has been a part of the Neshoba County Animal Hospital family for 15 years.

Here at the hospital, Amy enjoys interacting with clients and tending to the needs of pets in whatever way she can. She also does pet therapy at the local hospital and nursing home; Amy even started an initiative through the clinic to bring dolls to Alzheimer patients in need!

Outside of work, Amy enjoys spending time with her daughter and caring for her own pets at home. She lives with Diva, a long-haired Chihuahua who often accompanies Amy to work; Diva’s two puppies, Sister and Angus; a dog named Rick that Amy adopted from Neshoba County Animal Hospital; and three cats who go by Sunshine, Mr. Big, and Black Princess.
Jennifer
Veterinary Technician, Kennel Technician
Jennifer was a stay-at-home mother until her kids started school. It was then that she decided to return to the workforce and look for something she enjoyed that would also have the potential to turn into a lifelong career. When Jennifer thought about what she would like to do, the choice was obvious. Why not help pets and the people who care for them, she thought, by becoming a veterinary professional?

Jennifer is a Neshoba County native and attended Meridian Community College before moving on to study at Mississippi State University. Now, she’s a Veterinary Technician and Kennel Technician here at Neshoba County Animal Hospital, and couldn’t be happier to serve the pets and animal owners of her hometown. Jennifer finds that the most exciting part of her job is not knowing exactly what the next day will bring—her work constantly keeps her on her toes!

Away from work, Jennifer likes running and exercising, camping, and going to the movies or the waterpark with her children. She has a teenaged daughter, Harley, as well as a son named Parker. The family shares their home with a Great Dane named Ace and a longhaired Chihuahua puppy who goes by Marshall.
JoAnn
Customer Service Representative
Growing up in the farmland of Tallahatchie County, MS, JoAnn recalls constantly being surrounded by pets—there was never a time in her life when she didn’t have an animal by her side! JoAnn can’t imagine working in any other field; she’s a Customer Service Representative here at Neshoba County Animal Hospital and has been a veterinary professional for almost 30 years.

JoAnn moved to Philadelphia in 1981, and decided to rejoin the workforce when her youngest child started school. After working in a number of part-time jobs, she joined the Neshoba County Animal Hospital team and was hooked from day one! JoAnn’s favorite part of her job is getting to know clients on a personal basis and hearing all of their wonderful pet stories.

JoAnn and her husband, Tommy, have three grown children as well as nine beautiful grandchildren, and share their home with a spoiled cat, Breezy, as well as two dogs named Ruby and Tattoo. When she isn’t at work or spending time with her grandkids, JoAnn enjoys reading and riding her motorcycle with her husband. Her greatest riding achievement thus far was a four-day, 1200-mile ride across four states!
Kelly
Customer Service Representative
Kelly was born in Florida but lived in various places across the country while growing up, including Kentucky, Indiana, and several towns in Mississippi. One of her constants during those years was her pets—she always enjoyed the company of the family dogs and cats, and developed a love for animals that has persisted to this day. When the opportunity arose for Kelly to help other families and their animal companions by working in the veterinary world, she jumped at her chance!

Kelly joined the Neshoba County Animal Hospital team in April of 2018, where she serves as a member of the hospital’s front-desk team. One of Kelly’s favorite parts of her job is getting to work alongside a team of talented, compassionate animal-lovers just like herself, and she also likes having the chance to meet and greet new furry companions on a daily basis.

Most of Kelly’s free time away from the office is spent with her family. She has two sons and a daughter, and the family shares their home with a dog, Daisy, and a cat named Kevin.
