- Meet Nixie Doig
Nixie began her career at The Boght Veterinary Clinic in 2009. Working as a part time kennel worker she was dedicated to serving our clients and caring for their pets in our boarding facility. Because of her commitment to our practice and her eagerness to serve our clients, she was promoted to a part time receptionist position and now works full time as one of our most experienced employees in the front office. In this capacity she is one of the first employees you will see if you come to the hospital for an appointment, to drop your pet off for a stay in our boarding facility or if they are scheduled for a surgical procedure.
If you call the office to schedule an appointment, book a boarding reservation or just to ask a question, Nixie is on the line to help you with whatever you need.
One of the best things about Nixie is that she always leads by example. Because of her positive work ethic and her years of experience Nixie was promoted to Head Trainer for reception in 2015! In this capacity Nixie works closely with our newly hired receptionists. This involves training them on proper hospital procedures, showing them how to navigate the computer system and helping them acclimate themselves to our busy practice.
Nixie is a great team player. She works hard, is an excellent communicator and is easy to work with. She is reliable and comes to work with a positive attitude. She is always looking for ways to improve and has been instrumental in creating a training program and manual for receptionists and informational handouts for clients. She is also responsible for the Clinic’s prescription food order. This means taking orders, talking to clients about the special diets that might be prescribed by our doctors and working closely with the different food company salespeople to make sure she and the front end staff are educated about the different diets that are available.
Nixie is always available to support the hospital and her coworkers at outside events. Whether it’s livening up holiday events, walking in the breast cancer walk, or helping out at our Fall Festival, her enthusiasm is infectious and appreciated by all.
