Robyn McGeorge is a Registered Veterinary Technician here at Twin Maples. She grew up in Kettering and moved to Gratis Township in 2006 in order to have her horse, Hershey’s Kiss, finally live with her on her property. All through high school, Robyn knew she wanted to work with animals and start her own animal rescue. She enrolled at Wright State University as a business student but after 4 quarters, she quickly realized that was not the path for her.
She took a quarter off and got a job as a Veterinary Assistant at the Dayton Emergency Veterinary Clinic (now Medvet). She instantly knew that she wanted to pursue a degree in veterinary technology. She decided to go to Raymond Walters College, University of Cincinnati to get her Associates of Applied Science degree. She then started working at Twin Maples immediately following graduation in June 1994.
At Twin Maples, as a technician, Robyn’s duties include drawing blood, running laboratory tests, placing intravenous catheters, prepping patients for surgery, monitoring patients during and after surgery, and caring for hospitalized patients. She also takes radiographs (her favorite part of the job) and is in charge of radiation safety in the hospital.
Outside of Twin Maples, Robyn leads a very busy life. She has been married to her husband, Chris, since 2004. They have 2 horses: a rescued Belgian cross named Chance, and Hershey, her Quarter Horse/Arabian that she’s had since high school. They also have a crazy cat named Batman, a chow/golden named Shiloh, and a sweet black and tan coonhound mix named Chase, both of which Chris adopted from shelters before the couple met. They adopted their latest dog, a black mouth cur named Sailor (aka Lady Licks a lot), in 2012.
Robyn loves being outside with her animals, hiking and horseback riding. She and Chris enjoy going on vacations to enjoy nature and they also love going to Disney World, the happiest place on Earth! Her passion lies with animal rescue, adoption, and education. She started Robyn’s Nest, a non-profit animal rescue, in 2005. It started out as a foster network, but in 2008 Robyn went part time at Twin Maples in order to open her first facility in Miamisburg. Running the non-profit takes a lot of her time, but she enjoys it very much and takes pride in the help they offer to animals and their people.

Olivia’s parents always knew she would end up in veterinary medicine. From the time she could walk, they watched her pick up any animal she could get her hands on. She was always finding baby birds in the yard or picking up snakes out of the garden. Unlike most in the field, Olivia never worked with animals growing up. She instead worked at a retail store from the time she was fifteen years old, and for a long time she considered staying in retail for her career. When it was time to go off to college; however, Olivia decided to go to school to be a veterinarian, and went to the University of Findlay for a year. Once in school, she decided that she was much more suited to be a veterinary nurse. She moved from her small farm town in northwestern Ohio down to Dayton to go to Miami-Jacobs Career College. At the end of her program, Olivia did her externship at Twin Maples, and immediately knew it was where she was meant to be. As soon as she graduated in 2016, she started at Twin Maples as a veterinary nurse.
Olivia’s favorite thing to do at work is anesthesia because she loves all of the math calculations. She also enjoys taking care of hospitalized patients and giving them special attention and care. Outside of work, Olivia is typically at the dog park or hiking with the love of her life: her little mutt, Shelley. In addition to her dog, she also has a hedgehog and two geckos, and when she’s not hanging out with all of her pets, you can find Olivia taking care of her shelves and shelves of plants.
