Our Staff

Debbie Hartsfield, Veterinary Technician

My name is Debbie Hartsfield and I have worked in the veterinary field since 1990. I actually started my career here at Westside Veterinary Clinic working for Drs Bert and Sally. My husband's career in the Army moved us to Texas in 1993. I continued to work at a veterinary clinic there and trained to be a veterinary technician. I find it very rewarding to work with pets and their families. My goal is to help pets live a good quality life for as long as they can. When we moved back to DeRidder I returned to work at Westside Veterinary Clinic. I live with my husband Kevin, three Dobermans, Manfred, Rommel, Keegan and two cats Rose and Buttercup. In my spare time I enjoy training and competing in agility trials with my Dobermans.

Our pet family includes two cats, Mary Mac and Milo Jean, one dog named Fynn, and we have two fish tanks. When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, running kids to sport activities, and fishing.

Tory Lavergne, Receptionist

My name is Tory Lavergne. I am a mother to four handsome boys who always keep me on my toes. In my free time, I enjoy photography and riding horses.

I have two dogs, Boone and Zoey, a bottle calf named Slick, and a coop full of chickens. In my spare time, I enjoy hunting, fishing, taking care of my critters, and spending time with family and friends. I have always loved animals, so getting to work with them every day is a blessing.
