Kennel Staff

Chandler Poche, Hope Everhardt, Lauren Fallon

Chandler Poche is Linda’s grandson and Dr. Ernst’s great-nephew. His presence here continues our commitment to family at Ponchatoula Animal Hospital. Chandler is attending college and spends as much time as possible with his dog Nyx, a German Shepherd. In his spare time, he enjoys hunting and fishing.

Hope Everhardt has been a Kennel Technician since 2017. Hope is a mother, grandmother, and an extreme animal lover with 4 dogs and 2 cats of her own. She takes pride in having the cleanest kennels in Ponchatoula!

Lauren Fallon started working here in 2012 as a member of the kennel staff and completed training to become a veterinary technician. If your pet has had surgery at Ponchatoula Animal Hospital, Lauren is probably the one who monitored your pet’s smooth recovery. On her days off, she enjoys working on the farm with her husband and spending time with her daughter, 4 dogs, 4 cats, 1 snake, 7 mice, and 2 rats!

A family operated practice, Ponchatoula Animal Hospital welcomes you into a professional, yet warm and friendly atmosphere.
