Martin Holsinger - Practice Manager


"I have been working at Scioto Trail Animal Clinic since August 2016 and I have held almost every position that the clinic has to offer. I aspire to become a veterinarian and came to STAC simply looking for veterinary experience. I have found so much more. Dr. Salisbury has been a true mentor and has supplied me with countless opportunities. As Practice Manager, I strive to keep the clinic operating smoothly and supplying every patient with the level of care that I would expect for my own pets. I have an amazing wife, Madison, that keeps me grounded and three crazy dogs: Izzy, Knute, and Lucy." 

Dr. Salisbury says this in regards to Martin; “Martin has a quiet demeanor that hides a lot. For a young man, he has such an incredible work ethic. He is not afraid to get his hands dirty and he is always willing to jump to a task, even without asking, which is a valuable trait.  Since promoting him to practice manager, he has become an even greater asset.  He was already my right-hand, anticipating some of my moves prior to making them.  We make an excellent team and I value him so much."

Victoria Suarez - Receptionist / Kennel Staff

I’m originally from Houston, Texas, and currently a Musical Theatre major at Shawnee State University. My family has had pets for as long as I can remember- dogs, cats, birds, sugar gliders, prairie dogs, you name it! I adore animals, and am so happy I get to come into work and fall in love with a new patient, or visit with a familiar one, every time I work! 

"Victoria is a sweetheart who keeps the staff laughing and smiling.  She joined our family and fit in well while completing her job effortlessly."

Lindsey Meador - Receptionist / Kennel Staff


Lindsey is our newest team member. Lindsey says,  "I am a Cincinnati native and just recently moved to Lucasville. I am a lifelong animal lover and graduated from NKU back in 2016 with a degree in biological anthropology. After college I spent a year in South Africa studying meerkats. I grew up owning lots of cats, dogs, and other small mammals, and now I currently have two dogs, Remus and River, and two cats, Gatsby and Reece. I have just started learning how to be a beekeeper and if I'm not spending my time with animals, you can find me in the kitchen baking away. My animal care background is with zoo animals, so I am excited for this new adventure here."

Dr. Salisbury says the following regarding Kara; “Kara is like a breath of fresh air in this clinic. She’s loud and in charge and keeps us laughing. She truly fits in with the entire staff. Clients love her too because she’s so personable. She’s also not afraid to tell it like it is, which is often very welcome.”
