Dr. Juliette Carroll DVM, MS
Dr. Juliette Carroll was born and raised in the beautiful hills of Northwest Connecticut. Dr. Carroll began her college career at a small agricultural college in Pennsylvania, but fell in love with Texas after her employment on a large Angus seedstock operation in the Texas panhandle. She relocated to Texas in 2004 where she obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from Tarleton State University, and later moving to College Station, where she earned her Master’s degree in Veterinary Parasitology from Texas A&M University. While pursuing her graduate degree, Dr. Carroll developed a strong interest in drug-resistant parasites and tick-borne parasitic diseases, which has carried into her career as a veterinarian. She attended veterinary school at Colorado State University, graduating in 2013 as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. Upon her graduation, she returned to Texas to complete an internship in advanced equine medicine and lameness at Elgin Veterinary Hospital. Following her internship, Dr. Carroll put down roots in Fredericksburg where she has provided mixed animal veterinary care to the animals of the Texas Hill Country since 2015.
As part of Dr. Carroll’s unique equine experience, she is extremely skilled in foal pneumonia, equine ophthalmic disorders, lameness, internal medicine and reproduction. In addition to her extensive equine knowledge, Dr. Carroll also thoroughly enjoys small animal, livestock and exotic hoofstock medicine as well. She has particular interest in neonatal medicine, wound care, small animal soft tissue surgery and exotic ruminant parasite management. Dr. Carroll is a true mixed-animal practitioner in every sense of the word, and looks forward to caring for your large and small animal patients.
Dr. Carroll is married to her very supportive husband Corbin, who she met while attending undergrad at Tarleton. Together they spend their time trying keep up with their son, Weston and daughter, Rylan. Oak Valley Veterinary Services is a family-run business, and you’ll often see the kids “helping” mom with cases.
Dr. Carroll devotes a great deal of time to advancing her skills through copious amounts of continuing education and is a member of the following organizations: American Association Of Equine Practitioners; Exotic Wildlife Association; American Association Of Bovine Practitioners; Texas Equine Veterinarian Association; American Association Of Veterinary Parasitologists; American Veterinary Medical Association.
Rory Kneese, Technician
Colleen Trimble, Technician
Originally from Buda, Texas, Colleen and her husband Travis now reside in Travis’s hometown of Junction. Prior to their move to the Hill Country, Colleen was employed as a technician at a mixed animal clinic in San Marcos, which is where she initially met Dr. Carroll. She eventually moved on to spend the next four years as the Head Veterinary Technician at a small animal veterinary clinic in New Braunfels. Colleen and her husband always dreamed of raising a family in a small town. In 2018, they relocated to Junction and Colleen accepted a position in Fredericksburg, once again working alongside Dr. Carroll.
During her 10 years in the veterinary field Colleen has formulated a special interest in dentistry. With the experience of several hundred dental procedures alongside the completion of numerous continuing education programs, she has refined her dental technician skills to provide care for a variety of different species. This unique opportunity to work with creatures big and small has broadened her spectrum on knowledge and skill.
When not at work you can find Colleen at home with her husband Travis, their 5 month old son Wyatt Thomas, their two golden retrievers Dixie and Gracie, their cat PK (Porch Kitty), as well as many ducks and chickens.
Colleen is excited to be a part of the Oak Valley Veterinary Team during this time of growth. She strives to one day become practice manager as the business continues to expand to serve a greater part of the community.
