Wes

The “Wes” behind WesVet, Dr. Wesley Schoonover is a native of West Virginia, where he grew up and completed his undergraduate training at West Virginia University. After graduating from the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Wes worked as a critical care veterinarian at the Animal Neurology, Emergency, and Rehabilitation Referral Center in Commerce, Michigan. To become a well-rounded veterinarian, he also worked at a cat-only clinic, an animal shelter, and other small animal clinics in Michigan during this time.

In 2018, Dr. Wes moved to Music City with his family, working as an associate veterinarian at a local small animal practice while he prepared to put down roots and fulfill his dream of opening his own clinic.

Dr. Wes and his wife, Ciera, have two children—a son named Rowan and a daughter named Nora. The four-legged babies of the family include Jasper the cat and Denver the dog. When Dr. Wes isn’t working, he and his family enjoy playing golf together, watching sports, traveling, and supporting the West Virginia Mountaineers (and the Titans!).

Dr. Wes has a passion for emergency medicine, neurology, and internal medicine cases. He is thrilled to start building relationships with pets and their families here in the Brentwood community by offering high-quality veterinary care for years to come.

Celine

Practice Manager

Celine is originally from Chicago, Illinois, but has called Nashville home for two years. As if WesVet doesn’t keep her busy enough, she is in her junior year of Pre-Law studies at Middle Tennessee State University

She may be pre-law, but she fits right in at WesVet; her love for animals started when she began riding horses at a young age. Plus, she and her fiancé, Zach, have adopted three fur babies: Calhoun, Daisy, and Magnolia.

If Celine is not at WesVet then you can find her at the dog park, on a hike or enjoying a relaxing evening at home. She keeps us organized, and is the friendly voice you’ll hear when you give us a call! Celine is a fantastic addition to our team, and we are thrilled to have her!

Taylor

Technician

Taylor McSwain is a fresh transplant to Nashville from Paris, TN. She graduated from Murray State University in 2015 with a BSA in Animal Health Technology. Taylor loves working with all animals, but has a particular soft spot for caring for senior dogs and cats. As a veterinary technician, her passions are radiology, cardiology, anesthesia/surgery and animal behavior. When she isn’t working, she is looking for opportunities to go camping, kayaking, and to attend music festivals. She and her senior pup, Peanut, are thrilled to help establish WesVet in the Brentwood Community, so stop by and say hello!

Hannah

Technician

Hannah Everett has been in the veterinary field since she was 17 years old and she’s passionate about our fur babies! She started as a receptionist at a small clinic in Forsyth County, Georgia, then moved to Nashville to attend the Veterinary Technology program at Volunteer State in 2015. All the while, she was working as a kennel tech/ technician assistant at a larger clinic in East Nashville.

In 2017 she married the love of her life, Micah, and later that month rescued her pup, Enzo.

After graduating from the Vet Tech program in 2018, she became licensed and has been working in both Emergency Medicine and Preventative medicine. Her true calling is Surgical Anesthesia, and she hopes to eventually specialize in that field. Meanwhile, if she’s not in the clinic practicing veterinary nursing, she’s probably either at home hanging out with her favorite guys (Micah and Enzo), binging a show on Netflix , reading a good book , exploring the Nashville food scene , or buying more house plants!

Ieneke

Veterinary Assistant

Ieneke van Zanten is our Veterinary Assistant who moved to the US from New Zealand seven years ago. She spent the first several years of her adult career as a Graphic Designer in Los Angeles and Nashville, but eventually found she was not fulfilled by that career path. In 2020, she decided to get a job part-time at a local doggie daycare for a fun change of pace. It was then that she discovered her passion for animal care. Ieneke decided to enroll at Volunteer State in the Veterinary Technician program and is due to graduate next year! In the meantime, she is a vital member of the WesVet team, and we are SO lucky to have her!

Ieneke and her husband, Kyle, have six rescue fur-babies at home: their dog Riley, cats Mordecai and Toya, and rats Remy, Elliot and Sigmund. When Ieneke isn’t at WesVet or at school, you can find her at the pool, baking, or hanging out with her husband and animals. Please join us in giving her a warm welcome!
