Veterinary Technician
For Katie Long, there is no greater feeling than helping an animal in need. In fact, it’s patients like Ellie, a little dog who is paralyzed in her back legs, yet still manages to keep a happy, positive attitude that inspire Katie on a daily basis.

Katie joined the Neshoba Animal Hospital team in July of 2019. In her role as Veterinary Technician, Katie appreciates the opportunity to make an impact and improve the lives of pets on a daily basis. She particularly enjoys performing bloodwork, which she finds to be both challenging and fun at the same time.

Outside of work, Katie is ‘mom’ to a small zoo of animals, including three dogs named Lexi, Flossy, and Newt. When she’s not playing with her pets, Katie enjoys barrel racing. She views every day is an adventure!
Co-Owner, Practice Manager
Elizabeth worked in the telecommunications industry for many years before becoming a veterinary professional. When she met her husband, Dr. Tom Tischer, she realized that an opportunity had presented itself—here was a way for Elizabeth to help not only pets themselves, but their loving owners as well! Now, Elizabeth is proud to make a real difference as Neshoba County Animal Hospital’s Practice Manager.

Born and raised in Florence, MS, Elizabeth entered the telecommunications field early on in life; her parents owned an independent telephone company. After living and working in New Jersey, Alabama, and Kentucky, Elizabeth met Dr. Tischer in 2002. The couple was married in 2004 and moved to San Antonio, Texas, where Elizabeth started helping out at the veterinary clinic that her husband was working for at the time.

It didn’t take long for Elizabeth and her husband to realize what a good team they made in the animal care industry—they decided to pursue their dream of owning their very own veterinary practice. Elizabeth found her life coming full circle as the pair returned to Mississippi and opened Neshoba County Animal Hospital! Here at the clinic, she’s particularly fond of interacting with the hospital’s clientele and helping pets give birth to their litters.

In her time away from work, Elizabeth enjoys tending to her chickens and roosters at home, reading, knitting and crocheting, painting, gardening, and spending time with her family. She has two sons: Richard, who serves in the United States Navy and currently lives in Florida with his wife and six children; and Lewis, who lives in Tennessee with his wife and two young children.

Shortly after rescuing an adorable Pekingese/poodle mix named Cinderella, Amy took her new canine companion to her local vet’s office for a checkup. She ended up working for the veterinarian, sparking a passionate career in animal care that has persisted to this day! Amy has been a part of the Neshoba County Animal Hospital family for 15 years.

Here at the hospital, Amy enjoys interacting with clients and tending to the needs of pets in whatever way she can. She also does pet therapy at the local hospital and nursing home; Amy even started an initiative through the clinic to bring dolls to Alzheimer patients in need!

Outside of work, Amy enjoys spending time with her daughter and caring for her own pets at home. She lives with Diva, a long-haired Chihuahua who often accompanies Amy to work; Diva’s two puppies, Sister and Angus; a dog named Rick that Amy adopted from Neshoba County Animal Hospital; and three cats who go by Sunshine, Mr. Big, and Black Princess.

Jennifer was a stay-at-home mother until her kids started school. It was then that she decided to return to the workforce and look for something she enjoyed that would also have the potential to turn into a lifelong career. When Jennifer thought about what she would like to do, the choice was obvious. Why not help pets and the people who care for them, she thought, by becoming a veterinary professional?

Jennifer is a Neshoba County native and attended Meridian Community College before moving on to study at Mississippi State University. Now, she’s a Veterinary Technician and Kennel Technician here at Neshoba County Animal Hospital, and couldn’t be happier to serve the pets and animal owners of her hometown. Jennifer finds that the most exciting part of her job is not knowing exactly what the next day will bring—her work constantly keeps her on her toes!

Away from work, Jennifer likes running and exercising, camping, and going to the movies or the waterpark with her children. She has a teenaged daughter, Harley, as well as a son named Parker. The family shares their home with a Great Dane named Ace and a longhaired Chihuahua puppy who goes by Marshall.
