 Woodsdale Animal Hospital Staff


Dr. Vicki Soares has had the desire to take care of animals since she was 6 years old.  Growing up on a farm exposed her to the life and death of animals causing her to develop an appreciation for the special bond between animals and people.  It has been her life goal to keep that bond strong.  Helping people learn how to take care of their pets, so they can live long healthy lives, is not only good medicine for the animals, but also helps the owners have healthier lives also.

Dr. Soares graduated from Michigan State University with her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 1994. 


Groomer Brittany Stafford Driver has lived in Person County for most of her life.  She lives on a horse farm where she shows paints and quarter horses western pleasure and also shows spotted mountain saddle horses.  Brittany has been grooming for 13 years.  She absolutely loves her job and your pets can tell.  Her calm and friendly personality help even nervous pets to have a good grooming experience.  She has two children and two dogs, a Border Collie and a Bochi (short for Boston Terrier and Chihuahua mix).  Bring  your pets in to see her for their bath or groom.  She grooms cats and dogs and they will never want to leave.

I have been a member of the Woodsdale team since September of 2012. I have an interest in animal health and welfare across the board. I have had many experiences that have helped me gain knowledge in many different fields of animal health. I grew up on a beef cattle farm here in Person County. I traveled to South Africa in the summer of 2015 to study exotic animals through the Eco-life organization. I am currently a rising junior at NC State University majoring in Poultry Science and minoring in animal science. I have a Beagle who I adopted after falling in love with her during her recovery at Woodsdale in 2013. Outside of work and my studies, I enjoy spending summer days’ outdoors and on the lake!

Brittany joined our team in July after graduating from N.C. State with a degree in Animal Science.  She is from Roxboro and loves animals.  She currently shares her home with 7 cats.
