Halla Parker, Head Receptionist
My name is Halla Parker and I have been working at Oakdale Animal Hospital since April of 2018. I am originally from Jacksonville, North Carolina but I now live in Brandon, Mississippi. I live here with my husband Ethan, two golden retrievers, Tucker and Theodore, and two long-haired cats, Winston and LuLu. I love being a dog and cat mom and all my babies are very spoiled! In my free time, I enjoy taking my dogs to the park, trying new foods, binge-watching TV shows, traveling, and baking/decorating cakes and cookies. I absolutely love working at Oakdale! I enjoy serving our wonderful clients and working with animals. I have learned so much while working here at Oakdale and one day I hope to grow in the veterinary field.
Emiley Soulè, Receptionist
My name is Emiley Soulè. I have worked at Oakdale Animal Hospital since September 11, 2017. I love working at Oakdale because of my supportive coworkers and all the sweet fur babies we get to see. I live in Brandon with my sweet geriatric dog, Daisy. She is an 11 year old Chihuahua mix and is my childhood pet. Some of my favorite things to do are kayaking, fishing, reading, painting, listening to music, and playing with my dogs
Savannah Taylor, Receptionist
My name is Savannah. I have been working at Oakdale since August of 2017. I was first hired as a kennel technician and recently joined the receptionist team. I have always had a special place in my heart for animals. I am a junior at Ole Miss and my major is elementary education. I enjoy getting to know the clients and watching their pets grow. Over the years I have developed close relationships with my coworkers, and I am thankful to be a part of a close-knit group of people that are my second family. We all have a common goal to provide the best service to our clients and we value their trust in us. In my spare time I enjoy naps, spending time with my family and friends, babysitting, watching movies, shopping (on a budget), and eating fajitas.
