Director of Administration
To Brianne, the best thing about Eno is helping pets get the best care—and their people get the best service. She has an associate degree in business fundamentals and channels her heart and talent every day into her work with our Eno team and family. She wants to stay in the vet field for the rest of her life.
Born and reared in Fremont, California, near San Francisco, Brianne came to Durham in 2010. She and her husband now live in Rougemont with their daughter; a tuxedo cat named Sir Martin Fuzzleton; Boris the orange tabby; a Dalmatian named Baileigh; and Kona the Whippet puppy. She enjoys reading and playing the ukelele. Her favorite mottos are also her favorite song lyrics: “stand tall” and “shine.”
Director of Marketing
Anna B. was born and reared in Greensboro, an only child with six cats. Today she and her husband, Joshua, live in Durham with their beautiful feline family: Mortimer, Edith, Frances, Amelia, Seamus, Minerva, and Wynne. She believes in Hemingway: “One cat just leads to another.” And the philosophy that “until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
Anna B. enjoys feeding cats, snuggling cats, adding to her impressive collection of cat magnets, and cats. Her motto is: “Every special diet is worth it.” The best day of the week at her house is claw-clipping day. She is her cats’ spirit animal.
After earning her undergraduate degree in media communication from the College of Charleston, magna cum laude and with honors, and her master’s in journalism at Columbia University, Anna B. worked as a reporter, writer, and editor in New York City and lived in Brooklyn for many years. She also ran her own business as a freelance content creator and marketer for many top-tier and non-profit clients, happily composing away with cats on her lap.
Anna B. joined Eno in April 2019. As Director of Marketing, she’s excited to grow the amazing Eno family and make a positive difference in the community. She’s impressed by Eno’s team spirit, dedication to creating happy visits, and commitment to our cause of donating pet oxygen kits to local fire departments. Anna B. manages Eno’s website and social media; feel free to contact her with thoughts, suggestions, and feedback at email@example.com.
Director of Medical Services
Jena decided she wanted to be a veterinarian in middle school. She started along this exciting path by volunteering at Eno, working her way up to the highly skilled position of Vet Assistant in May 2017, and ultimately becoming our Director of Medical Services in September 2020. Jena recently graduated from Averett University with a bachelor’s in biomedical sciences.
Jena’s favorite part about Eno is the family atmosphere. She loves the people she works with and making connections with pet parents. Her most memorable Eno patient is Chester: a dog who was happy even when he got sick. Chester loved all the love he got at Eno and enjoyed every walk, until the end.
Jena lives in Durham with her two-legged family, four dogs, and five horses. Her spirit animal is the loyal, loving, calm koala bear. She will do anything for her friends, and would rather relax on a beach or by a river than run a marathon. Her favorite quotation is: “You are enough just as you are.”
Client Care Coordinator
Tori graduated from Northern High School, right across the street from our new hospital, and is currently studying radiography at Vance Community College. She joined Eno as a Client Care Coordinator in November 2018. The best part of her job is building relationships with pet parents and making friends with our “frequent flyers.” Plus getting to snuggle adorable fur babies is certainly a perk!
For fun, Tori crafts, eats, and spends time with loved ones. She lives in Rougemont with her husband and their Eno famous chocolate Labs, Kimber and Sig. She likes a challenge and lives by the motto “great things never come from comfort zones.” Tori’s spirit animal is the determined, wise polar bear.
Client Care Coordinator
Vickie is beloved both in the community and at our hospital. Her spirit animal is the monkey: playful, lighthearted, cheerful, and chatty. Her favorite thing about Eno is interacting with pets and pet parents. Vickie believes “people who seek vet care are great people.” She loves team meetings and being a valued member of our “devoted, caring, hard-working” team.
Vickie grew up in a small town called Tyner, outside Edenton in eastern North Carolina, with a dog named Duchess and a Persian named Puffin. The four-legged love of her life was Shelley, a Yorkie who lived to be almost 18. Today, Vicky lives a few minutes from Eno—right next to her 95-year-old mother—with her partner, Tracy; their senior dog, Claire; six gorgeous hens and a rooster named Fergus; and the many deer who come to feed in the yard every day when called.
At East Carolina University, Vickie earned her bachelor’s degree in K-12 health, magna cum laude, and a master’s in education. For fun, she makes jewelry and creates cool crafts—like the Eno-painted rock outside our front door…and now our very fashionable and important masks! In keeping with a lifetime of inspiring everyone she meets with her warmth, kindness, and good nature, Vickie’s motto is: “It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.”
Brian has years of experience in boarding and kennel care, dog training, pet salon management, and, of course, professional grooming. He loves classic canine cuts—for Poodles, Schnauzers, Bishons, Yorkies, and more—complete with precise hand-scissoring.
He’s also skilled in bathing, brushing, blowouts, shave-downs, de-shedding treatments, carefully combing out knotted fur, and gently removing mats. He gives great paw trims and face trims. Plus he’s comfortable with cats!
The best part of grooming to Brian is seeing pets feel better in real-time. His greatest reward is watching pets leave happy.
Brian loves working with his hands: not only to groom pets but also to fix up cars! He likes to hike, kayak, and be outside in nature. Brian grew up in Kinston and lives in Durham with his wife and three cats: Odin, Thor, and Loki.
Noelle loves grooming! Especially Poodle cuts, hand scissoring, “neaten-up” trims, and helping matted pets. Matted fur can be a serious medical issue, and helping matted pets back to rights is incredibly rewarding. Her favorite part of grooming is making pets feel better.
Born in Fort Lauderdale, Noelle grew up with three brothers and a tan-and-white long-haired cat named Tigger. Her family moved to Butner when she was 8 years old, and she still lives there: with her husband, two human children, two cats, Nac Nac and Charlie, and a ball python named Holmes.
After graduating from Granville Central High School, Noelle started working as a PetSmart bather. At PetSmart’s grooming school in 2017, she trained with an established groomer and has loved the work ever since.
Noelle has also been an Eno pet parent! She says, “Dr. Grinstead was wonderful with my pets. I could really trust her in every way a person should trust her vet.”
Her spirit animal is the courageous, protective, loyal lioness. Noelle believes in relating to all people. Her motto is: “In life, not everyone will think the same way you do.”
Everybody in the Eno family knows and loves Charles. He loves cuddling wiggly patients, and can always make friends with nervous pets. Every day he gives Eno his all—helping healthy pets get the best wellness care; helping sick pets get the best treatment; administering laser therapy; performing dental cleanings and monitoring surgery patients, and being there with pet parents for the tough times. In all he does, Charles makes sure we are the best hospital we can be.
Charles lives in Rougemont with his wife and huge fur family: six cats, the Eno famous Great Pyrenees, Alaska, plus so many ducks and chickens. When he isn’t holding down the fort at Eno, he loves to fish.
A second-year student at NC State—go Wolfpack!—Hannah is majoring in animal science with a concentration in veterinary bioscience and a minor in applied ecology. She always knew she wanted to be a veterinarian and credits that dream to her father teaching her about human medicine when she was a kid.
Hannah joined our team in August 2020. Her favorite thing about Eno is the excellent hands-on experience she’s gaining in the small animal field—especially as she considers what field of animal medicine is perfect for her.
Hannah loves to spend time with her 9-year-old gray tabby cat, Lucy. Her spirit animal is the determined, nurturing, gentle panda bear.
When Emily came to North Carolina in 2015, she got her first job at a vet and adopted Chico—a high-energy, adventure-loving snuggle machine—and has been spoiling him rotten ever since. She lives in Durham and plans to adopt many more animals soon!
We welcomed Emily to Team Eno in September 2020. Her dream is to become a veterinarian, and her motto is: “There’s always an opportunity to learn new things.”
With experience in wildlife rehabilitation and emergency vet care, Emily helps the Eno family every day with her passion, determination, and quick-thinking. Emily loves that everyone at Eno cares for one another—and everyone cares for Eno pets as our own.
For fun, Emily likes to slackline (or tight rope), trail hike, swim, read, and dance. Her spirit animal is the courageous, intuitive tiger.
Adrian joined our team in June 2020. Her favorite thing about Eno is helping patients feel better, and caring for so many pets.
Her home in North Durham, just a 10-minute walk from our hospital, is all about creating a farm. She chose to live in our great Tar Heel state for its beautiful climate.
Adrian likes to spend time with her human and fur family: husband, daughter, Bengal cats Apollo and Ares, Sampson the Pomeranian, and a mini Jersey cow named Maybelle.
Her spirit animal is the cat: powerful, clever, intuitive, and magical. Her favorite quotation: “It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.”
In high school, Dennis discovered a passion for animal science and veterinary science. Since the mid-1980s, he has managed horse farms and still loves training horses. He also pet-sits in his spare time.
A member of Team Eno since September 2020, Dennis tends to pets with great care, a sharp attention to detail, and plenty of affection. He keeps our boarding pets happy and our facilities bright and clean. Dennis is deaf; he’s excellent at reading lips…and listening to animals in many profound, beautiful ways.
For fun, Dennis likes to camp, be outdoors, and see new places. His spirit animal is the quick-thinking, adaptable fox—also known for a heightened sense of awareness and guidance in tricky situations. Dennis’s motto is: “Always expect the unexpected! Be prepared for the unknown.”
On Jan. 1, 2019, Brandi became our trusty bookkeeper. She has an associate degree in Business Administration with a specialization in Tourism Management and is currently studying Emergency Management and Disaster Services at Durham Technical Community College.
Brandi was born in Pensacola and grew up in Albany, Georgia, with four brothers, five sisters, and many Collies and Shelties. She volunteers with the Red Cross and enjoys reading, writing, swimming, watching TV, and spending time with family. She and her husband, Chuck, are the lucky pet parents of pooches Paige and Sassie.
Of all the beautiful memories Brandi has made at Eno, watching the dream of our new hospital become a reality is her favorite. Her spirit animal is the optimistic, nurturing bear.
Brad is married to Dr. Sabrina Grinstead and has many roles in the family business: IT wizard, public liaison, and, most importantly, dad to their two children. He grew up in Arlington, Texas, with a miniature Poodle and two gerbils.
Brad has a Ph.D. in electrical engineering and runs a small software development company. He has experience in computer tech and sales. His favorite part of being part of Eno is, of course, helping his beloved wife succeed in her dream. It makes all the gross medical talk he’s endured at the supper table worth it. His spirit animal is the steady, sensitive Pangolin.
Brad’s hobbies include reading, hiking, playing computer games, and taking the dogs, Leia and Badger, on walks. He lovingly tolerates the family cats and follows the tenet that “life is too short to eat brown bananas.”
