Meet the Team

  • Dr-Haught
    Roberta Haught D.V.M.

    Hello, Dr. Haught here! I am a co-owner and medical director/practicing veterinarian of Colegate Woods Veterinary Hospital. I am a native of Washington County. I grew up on a small farm in Lawrence Township. We raised beef cattle. My memories of my childhood on the farm include playing outside a lot.  I enjoyed the pets we had - dogs and cats. My parents gifted me with a horse and I enjoyed riding in the woods and the beauty of nature when it was time to take up the hay. I remember helping my grandmother prepare lunch for all those working in the hayfield. As they came in to eat, we offered sandwiches, fresh veggies from the garden, Texas sheet cake, and lemonade! When I began to drive, I was promoted to truck driver. Our hay fields were definitely a challenge to drive in as our farm was on top of a hill and no fields were flat. 

    I attended Frontier High School, graduating from there in 1986. I was a member of the volleyball and basketball teams. I also enjoyed being the piano accompanist for our choir under the direction of Bill Bigger. After high school graduation, I made the transition to city life for a few years. I attended The Ohio State University, majoring in Animal Science in the College of Agriculture. I completed the requirements for application to vet school in two years and was accepted into the College of Veterinary Medicine at The Ohio State University. I was able to complete my undergraduate degree during my first year of vet school. I completed vet school in the spring of 1993. I returned to Washington County as an associate veterinarian at Green Meadow Veterinary Hospital under the mentorship of Dr. David Spindler.

    Dr. Spindler taught me how to apply all that I had learned in vet school into everyday practice. He also taught me how to treat my clients and how to love this career in veterinary medicine. In 1999, my husband and I opened Collegiate Woods Veterinary Hospital. I have spent 25 of my 31 years (so far) calling Colegate Woods my home. I enjoy the variety of general practice. I have worked with many species over the years. Now I work mostly with dogs, cats, and the occasional horse, camelid, or goat. I enjoy all aspects of practice - preventative medicine, internal medicine, and surgery. I enjoy meeting the needs of our clients through our practice. I treasure all of our clients and their pets. In 2023, I was excited to introduce our associate - Dr. Rebekah Fleming.  She is my daughter and has always loved veterinary medicine. Now, I am honored to work alongside her. She is married to a wonderful man, Kyle. I am excited to watch them begin their life together in our community. 

     Brian and I also have a son, Daniel. He is finishing his first year of human general practice residency in Chillicothe, Ohio. He is married to Alaina, a delightful young woman. They have two young sons - Callum (born in 2020) and Owen (born in 2023). Outside of work, I love to spend time with my family. Brian and I enjoy hiking and discovering the fun of the beach through the eyes of our grandsons. Other hobbies I enjoy include reading, playing the piano, and coloring.”

    Rebekah Fleming D.V.M.

    My name is Rebekah Fleming and I’m a veterinarian. I did my undergraduate studies at Cedarville University and then attended Purdue University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. My husband, Kyle, and I have three cats that we’ve adopted from Colegate Woods over the years.

  • Anng
    Ann Gilligan
    Customer Service Representative / Office Manager

    Hi, I’m Ann and I’m currently the office manager at Colegate Woods Veterinary Hospital. I have a B.S. in Business Administration and Management. I started in 1990 as a surgical assistant for Dr. James Davis in Parkersburg. 

    I share my home with my daughter Ayla, five completely normal cats, one very special needs cat named Fanny, our sweet beagle Evie and a silly vizsla named Cambrie. 

    When I first started my journey in vet med, I did it for the same reason everyone says, “because I love animals.” In the years since I’ve learned it’s so much more than that. It’s the human animal bond, and it’s the relationships we build with families over the years. They share so much of their lives with us, through joy and heartache. Our clients are so much more than just “customers” to us.  I also have a side hustle, a small fine silver and gemstone jewelry business. My jewelry can be found in boutiques and galleries in West Virginia, including Tamarack.

    Kathy Dodrill
    Account Clerk

    Hi, my name is Kathy Dodrill; I work in Accounts Payable because Chaos Coordinator is not an official job title. I'm usually in the back paying bills, etc, but live for the times I can come to the lobby and love on client pets. I retired from Ohio State University after 35 years as Associate Professor in the Department of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and 5 years at West Virginia University Extension. My husband, Mike, and I are owned by Kaitlin, our 10 year old Irish Setter; Keegan, our 3 year Irish Red and White Setter; and 2 cats, Micah and Katie. Kaitlin is our Sweetheart princess and constantly reminds us of her beauty, grace and elegance; Keegan is our BMC, lovin’ life and bringing endless joy to our home. Micah and Katie balance out the crew. I have chosen to work in veterinary medicine to see if it is something I might want to do when I grow up; I'm shadowing to see if this would be a good second career for me. I'm totally loving it!!I stand in awe of the gifted and talented team around me!

  • Christina-Skye-Pop
    Christina Warren Davis R.V.T.
    Registered Veterinary Technician / Office Manager

    I’m Christina Warren Davis and I’m a Registered Veterinary Technician/Nurse and Office Manager. I have 4 kids, 4 dogs, and 8 cats. My kids are the love of my life, my reasons to keep going on rough days! I have Cooper who is 10, Scarlett and Mason who are 7 year old twins and Camdon is my 8 year old bonus son. They love when they are able to come to work with me!

    My dogs are Lady Rae, a labradoodle; Ruger, a mini schnauzer (he was one of a C-section liter that Dr. Haught performed at the hospital); Vetri Roo in a min pin that was turned over to the HSOP to be euthanized because she wasn’t able to walk. We later diagnosed her with Cerebellar Hypoplasia and she is living her best life! Skye, which most clients have come to know; is a rescue pup. She’s a mixed breed and loves to come to work daily! She has become the mascot of the hospital. I have a mix of cats that have either come from the hospital or strays that have found my home. I have : Fender my geriatric polydactyl, Me mouse (my obese bottle baby), Bumble Bee my bobtail, Woody and Carl were kittens from a feral momma, Simon a special stray that found my home and fit right in, Timmy was a tabby that had a fractured leg and “Mammy's cat” (he started as my parents but stayed because of our heated kitty box). I recently added a special kitten; Princess Poppy, to the clan. She had to have a bladder stone removed at 4 weeks old, so she will have special needs the rest of her life as well

    I started working at Colegate Woods Veterinary Hospital when I was 16 years old. I always wanted to work with animals, I just wasn’t sure which route I wanted to go. After working here throughout high school, this helped me realize I wanted to become a Veterinary Nurse! I left CWVH in 2004 and attended Columbus State Community College, where I earned my degree and then took my licensure test to become certified! I was very eager to move back home and was welcomed back to Colegate Woods to rejoin my family there! I returned in 2006 right after graduation and have been here ever since! It’s wonderful to know what I was meant to do with my life; and that is to help animals and their people anyway I can. It is truly a passion! I'm proud that my children are able to grow up watching their mom work hard but also love what I do!

    Hi, my name is Madison Schneider. I have been  a Registered Veterinary Technician/Nurse here at Colegate Woods Veterinary Hospital for 1 year now. I have been happily married for 6 years to my high-school sweetheart, Drew. We have 2 beautiful daughters together, Hallie (3 years old) and Emilia (1 year old), as well as 3 spoiled cats; Grey(4), Roger(10), and Ziggy(6m) and our trouble maker hound mix; Remi(8). 

    I graduated from The Vet Tech Institute at Bradford in Columbus, Ohio in 2016, where my journey began as a Vet Nurse.  The choice to take on this profession is because of my love and compassion for all types of animals. I've always had a soft spot in my heart for those in need, especially when it came to the furry ones. 

    In my free time, I enjoy relaxing with my little family, as well as visiting our large extended families on the weekends. I always look forward to our annual beach vacation, which just happens to be my favorite place to be!

  • Jesse-
    Jesse Leef
    Veterinary Assistant

    Hi, I'm Jessie. If you pick up on a funny accent  or hear a sarcastic joke, you've got me. I've been a Veterinary Assistant/Scribe at Colegate Woods for 8 years. I also worked at another Veterinary Clinic for 3 years before moving here. 

        My husband, Corey and I moved from southern WV in 2015 when he accepted a Mechanical Engineer position locally. I graduated from WVU with a Bachelor's degree in Animal and Nutritional Sciences with plans to go into an animal care or agricultural field. 

        Growing up on a farm I was used to all sorts of animals (goats, horses, cows, little furries, little scalies, and more dogs and cats than I can count). Helping all those animals live their best life sometimes meant helping them heal so that led me to my passion for Veterinary Medicine. 

       What I'm most proud of is being a mother to two wonderful boys, Owen, 3 and Ozzy, 4 months. They are my whole world and I can't imagine not being their Mama.

       We currently have one dog, Freya, a 9 month old Doberman Pinscher and two snakes, Steve and Pablo. Freya can usually be found digging up our entire backyard (one of her passions) or tagging along with 'her boys' to make sure they're safe and don't have snacks that need to be shared.

        I've loved working at Colegate Woods. I've made lifelong friendships within our close-knit work family and met many clients and animals I'll never forget. When you bring your pets to Colegate Woods know that they are truly cared for as one of our own.

  • Bayleeeeeeee
    Baylee Malone
    Veterinary Assistant

    HI! My name is Baylee Malone. I’m a veterinarian assistant! My job consists of  monitoring surgeries, keeping the office tidy, making sure every appointment has what it needs (vaccinations, deworming, ear swabs, etc..) One of the greatest things I’m known for or that I do is make absolutely memorable ink/clay prints for owners/families when they lose their furry friend. It truly warms my heart seeing the owners smile and tear up, knowing they get to forever see their little ones nose and paws as a reminder that they are always there with them.

    So, I have a huge soft spot for animals in need. I take in a lot of rescues. Most people refer to my room as “A Zoo”, as I have 5 lizards, 5 frogs, a parrot and 6 aquariums just in my room. It’s my big hobby, I find it super relaxing and peaceful with all the wildlife/animal/water noises going on. I also have 10 cats! Between me and my parents, only 3 of them are mine (as you see in my photo) that I’ll be taking when I move out. Other hobbies consist of drawing, painting, and making cat toys. 

    So why do I work in VetMed? So when I was a little girl, I grew up with 3 cats and a little leopard gecko. Since then, I’ve always wanted to be in the field. And at the age of 17, those dreams came true. I love my job and I’m grateful for what I do everyday, even though there’s good or bad days, I push through, because I know deep down the little girl I once was would be so proud of me.
