    Assistant Office Manager

    Karima is our Assistant Office Manager/Client Service Representative that started with the Goose Creek Vet team, but is now here at Ladson since the opening in 2019 with a long background in veterinary care. She started off as an office manager for a large and small animal hospital in West Texas where she is from, and made her way to the nurse side shortly after. She moved to the Lowcountry in 2015 and joined the our team. She's a lover of all creatures large and small, and has 4 fur-babies of her own: Atlas - an Alaskan Husky, Cinna - an Australian Shepherd Mix, a Black short-haired cat named Hela, a Grey Tabby named Zephyr, and a Black tabby named Berlioz. Together they are sweet, fluffy couch potatoes that enjoy long cuddle sessions, eating loads of snacks, taking naps, and watching Twilight. Karima recently obtained the title of a Cat Friendly Veterinary Advocate from the American Association of Feline Practitioners and hopes to continue her education on better understanding the complexity of our friendly felines.
