team at Benessere Animal Hospital. She has considered North Carolina her home since 1997, earned a bachelors degree in 1987 in Physical Therapy from East Carolina University and then graduated with her D.V.M. from the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. After graduating, Dr. Oliver began her full-time veterinary career working as an alternative and general medicine associate at a small animal practice in Charlotte, North Carolina. While doing this, she also worked part-time as a veterinary nutrition resident at North Carolina State University until 2011. Dr. Oliver decided to become a veterinarian because she is passionate about preventing animals from pain and suffering, particularly because of the physical challenges that many older and disabled pets face. Even though she enjoys seeing many different pets every day, she is in pain management, veterinary nutrition, soft tissue surgery, exotics, stem cell therapy, and geriatrics. There are several different professional associations that Dr. Oliver is a member of, including AAHA, AVMA, AAFP, NCVMA, AAVN, AAHA, and IVAPM. She also supports three local charities, The Haley Graves Foundation, Break The Chain Kennel KRU, and Bingo Pet Hospice. Dr. Oliver lives in Greensboro, North Carolina and shares her home with her beloved cats and dogs. Dr. Oliver feels very fortunate to work with the professional team at Benessere Animal Hospital and to serve all of the wonderful patients and pet parents who come into our hospital.
She left the corporate world to follow her dreams. She says that working here has been the most rewarding job she has ever had. Working with our staff and helping our clients meet the needs of their fur babies gives her 'the best feeling in the world.' She and her husband have started a private rescue for special needs pups. They view this as their calling and are currently up to 9 pups. They are loving this journey and looking forward to many more adventures to come.

her job and is happy to be part of the team at Benessere animal hospital

Crystal started working as a volunteer at an animal hospital when she was
13 years old. She quickly learned that she loved working with animals and her
heart pulled her back every day to take care of them for 3 years. She loved
them so much that she worked after school 5 days a week without pay.

. Now 25 years later, she is still doing the job that her heart
tells her to do; taking care of the four-legged babies every day. She has 2
dogs and 1 cat: Daisy a 9 year old lab mix and Ellie a 4 year old pointer
mix and Pumpkin a 16 year old orange tabby. She is excited to be a part of

Lisa is a Dog Trainer and Vet Assistant for Benessere Animal Hospital.
While training dogs has been a passion of hers since a young age, it was
the inspiration of one of her own pups that moved her to turn this passion
into a full time business. Her mission is to take the goals of her clients
and make them a reality, all the while creating a stronger bond between
human and dog. she has learned through years of experience with both
clients and her own 3 dogs that there is nothing more rewarding than
working side by side with animals and humans to meet a common goal. It is
what she was born to do!
