Cassie Mangum, Head Receptionist
My name is Cassie Mangum and I have been working at Oakdale Animal Hospital since May of 2013. I currently live in Magee, MS with my husband Mason, our 3 dachshunds Edwin, Ezra, and Emerson, and our long-haired calico cat Margo. I love working at Oakdale Animal Hospital for many reasons. The most obvious one is that I love animals, and I love getting to snuggle them every day. But I also love meeting and interacting with our clients, we become like family as we watch their fur-babies grow up, we laugh together,we celebrate the happy times, and we cry together as we mourn the hard times, that is something I didn’t expect when I first started working here.Some of my favorite things to do are spending time with my family, being involved in my church, reading, travelling, trying new food, and I have recently discovered the joys of having house plants!

Whitney Harris, Receptionist
Hey everyone! My name is Whitney Harris. I have been with Oakdale Animal Hospital since April 2019. I live in Brandon, MS with my two dogs Dozer (Catahoula) and Rooster (Doberman). They have two indoor siblings Ivonne and Ivory, my spoiled kitties, who keep me on my toes. Although my time here hasn’t been long I have learned that interacting with our amazing clients and patients is my top favorite thing about working here. A few things about me is: I was born in Grants Pass, OR and then moved to Mississippi at a young age. I also have lived all over Mississippi. But I mainly grew up in Pearl, MS where I graduated high school where I found my favorite hobbies are anything doing with interacting with new people.
