Angela Caldwell, DVM, MS

I am from Alpine, Utah. This rural mountain community allowed me to enjoy the outdoors with our many pet family members. I always knew I had a love of all animals thus my choice in a college major was directed to the study of animal life. I attended Brigham Young University for both my Bachelor’s degree in Zoology and Master’s degree in Teratology. I was then privileged to continue my education at Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine and receive a doctorate. While there I focused on small animal study.

I am a member of Arizona Veterinary Medical Association the American Veterinary Medical Associations. My husband and I have lived in Arizona for over 16 years.

We have three children, two cats, two horses and a dog which sometimes makes our home feel like a full-time zoo. Together, with my husband Richard, we own and operate Arizona Healthy Pet Hospitals, which includes Augusta Ranch Animal Hospital. Arizona Healthy Pet Hospitals provide pet family-members in the East Valley the very best health care. We maintain the highest standards and are proud of the excellent animal / pet doctors and staff members that care for each and every pet as if it were their own.

Deneen Hawley, DVM

Dr. Deneen Hawley was born and raised in Nebraska where she attended the University of Nebraska and earned her bachelor’s degree in education. After teaching middle school science for 3 years, she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of being a veterinarian. She then attended Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine where she earned her doctorate. She went on to practice veterinary medicine in eastern Nebraska for four years before deciding to open her own veterinary hospital in Omaha. After eight more years she decided it was time to leave the cold Midwest winters behind, so she transferred the hospital to the capable hands of her veterinary associate and moved with her family to the valley of the sun. Dr. Hawley has special interests in feline medicine, internal medicine and geriatric pet diseases. She and her husband share their home with a large family of rescue cats. They enjoy spending their free time pursuing outdoor activities like hiking and gardening, and during football season they love to cheer for their beloved Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Nicole Chavarry, DVM

Dr. Nicole Chavarry was born and raised in Miami, Florida where she attended Florida International University and earned her bachelor’s degree in biological sciences with a minor in chemistry. After working as a scientific scuba diver through college, she realized she had a calling to help animals in need. She worked as an emergency veterinary technician before deciding she wanted to become a veterinarian. She then attended the college of veterinary medicine at Western University of Health Sciences where she met her husband, who was attending the college of osteopathic medicine. They moved to Arizona so he could complete his residency in family medicine at HonorHealth in Scottsdale.

Dr. Chavarry began working for Augusta Ranch Animal Hospital in June of 2016. She has special interests in internal medicine, dentistry, geriatric medicine, and clinical pathology. She and her husband share their home with 3 rescue cats and 2 rescue dogs. They enjoy spending their free time pursuing outdoor activities like hiking with their dogs (including an enthusiastic 3-legged Labrador and a valley fever surviving Boxer) as well as gardening and competing in Crossfit competitions across the valley.

Kimberley Shaird, DVM

Dr. Shaird was born in France and was raised in Australia, Japan, and Virginia before moving to Tucson, AZ. She graduated from the University of Arizona in 2005 with a degree in Veterinary Science and received her DVM degree from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. Dr. Shaird worked at a small animal practice in Phoenix, AZ, for a couple of years before moving and practicing in New Jersey for four years. She is glad to be back home in Arizona and proud to be a member of the Augusta Ranch Animal Hospital team. Dr. Shaird enjoys traveling, exploring Arizona, reading, music, and loves spending time with her two cats, Muñeca and Kunoichi.
