Practice Manager:  Deb Branwell


Howdy!  I'm Deb and here's a little about me.  I was born in WV, grew up in FL, moved to TN in the late 80's, moved back to FL and finally rooted myself back in these beautiful Smoky Mountains to stay!  I have had a fun and varied career in management including stints with Reba, John Deere and as a City Manager.  Nothing makes me happier than spending time with my fur-babies or animals and nature in general.  I am told I started talking to the animals and trees as soon as I could form words!  Because of that, accepting the position as the Practice Manager here at BCAH was a no brainer for me.  In my free time I like to hike, bike, kayak, look for old relics, take nature photography, write, garden, and above all (except for God), care for my myriad of barn cats and my 2 indoor cats.  I plan on adding a dog or two very soon. I look forward to serving you and your special pet friends.



Client Care Representative/ Veterinary Assistant: Melody Rogers


Hey!  I'm Melody.  I am Seymour born and raised.  I graduated from Seymour High School.  I have loved animals for as long as I can remember, always trying to bring home every stray I found.  I worked at an animal clinic in Knoxville for 3 years before joining the staff at BCAH in December of 2017.  I am also co-owner of an online boutique "Wildflower Sisters Boutique" that I run with my Sister-in-Law.  You could say I am the leader of a pack.  Pack of dogs that is--I have 10!!  While I am an advocate for pit bulls, I am a lover of all kinds of animals.  I enjoy my dual role here at BCAH but especially like when I can work hands on with the patients.  In my time away from work I enjoy anything outdoors-swimming, kayaking, hiking and fishing to name a few.  I also like scary movies, country music, dancing, crafting and cuddling with my fur babies.  Fun fact-I am a mermaid at heart.  My heart's desire is to figure a way for animals (dogs in particular) to live as long of lives as we do.
