BROOKE CORBITT

Receptionist | With MMAH since 2018

Brooke is an Auburn native and is one of the many bright faces waiting to welcome you to our clinic.

MS. TOMMIE THAXTON

Client Experience Attendant and Receptionist | With MMAH since 2021

Ms. Tommie has been with MMAH since April of 2021 and is often the first face that clients and patients see when they arrive at the clinic! Her favorite part about working at MMAH is seeing furbabies reunited with their owners: the wagging tail, cries and barks of excitement, meows of joy, and the immediate demand for parental pats on the head. Although Ms. Tommie loves all animals, she is partial to dogs as she has two Daschunds of her own! That being said, she also has a cat, so it’s a close call on her favorite animal species. Her greatest life accomplishment so far was being able to minister to others while she was a nurse, as well as being blessed with a great family.
