Dr. Mira Rogers
Dr. Mira Rogers graduated from Texas A&M in 1997. She joined the True Companion team in April 2013. She fit in immediately and promised to spend the rest of her career here, no exceptions!
Dr. Rogers is married to her loving, handsome husband Ray. She has a very naughty dog named Crash (pictured above) who sometimes forgets his manners and bites people (she’s working on that).

Carlie joined the True Companion family in May 2019.
Carlie is currently finishing her undergraduate studies at Sam Houston State University with a degree in Animal Science and Pre-Veterinary Medicine. After having, loving, and losing her precious TomTom to hip dysplasia, Carlie’s interest in Orthopedic Surgery was born and that is what she aspires to do. As a Veterinary Assistant, she treats our boarding guests as though they were her own and she helps the technicians and doctors behind the scenes. At home, she loves her boyfriend’s two Australian Shepherds, Korra and Kane and her two chihuahuas, Honey and Mojo. She is at her happiest around her fur babies and hopes to grow her little family by adding a Sphynx cat and Labrador someday.
Fun Fact: Carlie’s dream job was originally to be a mermaid, but after some deeper thought and lack of appropriate uniform (i.e. gills and a tail) she focused on her love for animals instead.
Kat joined the True Companion family in December 2018!
Kat always knew she wanted to work with animals. When she found herself working in the veterinary field, she realized she enjoyed helping clients feel right at home better than handling needles. She found the best of both worlds here with us! Her favorite dog breed is the Border Collie and in her spare time she can be found at the nail salon pampering herself. She is also a makeup expert and loves trying new beauty products. Kat will always greet you with a friendly smile and make your experience here warm and pleasant. While most clients are used to seeing her smiling face at the front desk, she has transitioned to performing and learning more technician skills!
