She started volunteering at the age of 14 and has worked in the veterinary medicine field working with marine mammals, exotic big cats, monkeys, bears, wildlife, and several rescue organizations. Lexi’s favorite part of her job is getting to meet all our furry patients and seeing their personalities. She says, “Each animal is an individual and I’m so happy to work at a place that sees that and provides for them.


Lexi is a keeper of a two-legged person, her husband, Ian. Along with one dog, Sebastian, and a three-legged cat, Legolas. Her and Ian will be welcoming a Tiny Team Member in February of 2024. Lexi loves to read and go to the beach, the best day is when she gets to read at the beach. She is a big nerd and loves Disney, Star Wars, LOTR, MCU, DC, and so much more.

With approximately 13 years of experience in the field of veterinary medicine, she has developed a profound passion for it.

Breona “Bre” is a Jacksonville native who gained her love for animals very early on in life. Her animal career began as a dog bather in 2016 and she climbed to the position of dog groomer a year and a half later. Her tech career began in 2019, where she gained experience working for a local non-profit clinic and for the local humane society prior to joining the Intracoastal West team. Bre plans on becoming a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in the near future and is very happy to continue to gain experience taking care of pets for families in the Jacksonville Community!

Bre has one four-legged (and 17-toed) puppy named Otter and a puppy sister named Ivy. She is excited to meet and care for your babies and hopes that she can build lasting relationships with you and your fur family!

Veterinary Technician

Caroline was raised right here in Jacksonville in an incredibly animal-loving home. Her childhood companions included numerous cats, dogs, dwarf hamsters, many fish, and even a chameleon. Growing up, her mom had a passion for fostering kitten litters, igniting Caroline's love for animal care from a very early age. 

When Caroline rescued her own furry friend, her desire to absorb all there is to know about animal science took flight. She soon secured a position as a veterinary technician and quickly fell head over heels for the field of veterinary medicine. A year later, Caroline discovered Intracoastal West Vet Hospital and is absolutely thrilled to be part of our incredible team of veterinarians and staff. She's eager to continue expanding her technician skills and veterinary medicine knowledge with us!
