Meet Our Team
Dr. Charles Curie, Owner
I am an Ashtabula County native. My family has been here since the 1800’s. They came here to farm and raise their families in the beautiful wooded North Country of Ohio. After graduating from The Ohio State University, College of Veterinary Medicine in 1978 I decided that my ancestors had the right idea and I too returned home to raise a family and practice veterinary medicine.
The faculty at OSU bestowed upon me the great honor of being the most outstanding large animal veterinarian in the class of ’78. I practiced large animal medicine and surgery almost exclusively for the next 20 years. I had built the Country Doctor Veterinary Clinic in 1983 and my associate veterinarians attended to small animals for many years while I stayed focused on the areas dairy and horse farms.
In 1996 a horse that I was working on attacked me and severely injured my neck. I was forced out of large animal practice and transitioned into small animal medicine and practice management. I love this every bit as much as my large animal days.
Over the years our clinic has evolved from a premier large animal practice into a premier small animal practice which has been nationally recognized for excellence in patient care and practice management.
I truly believe that our incredible staff deserves most of the credit for our success. I have had many amazing people work with me over the years and this has been the greatest pleasure of my long career. If you think about it; a veterinary clinic is just brick, mortar, medicine and equipment. It is the people that set it apart and I have been blessed with the greatest staff on the planet!!
The clients have been wonderful as well. We have over 13,000 clients in our data base and I can truly say that it has been a pleasure to know and work with so many people who are dedicated to their animals. We are really in the people business……..the animals don’t bring themselves to the Vet! Thankfully through the
Dr. Emily Miller
As an Ashtabula County native I am proud to be part of the Country Doctor Veterinary team. I am a summa cum laude 1996 Geneva High School, summa cum laude 2000 Lake Erie College and 2004 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. I have a variety of interests within veterinary medicine. I join our practice with a unique background of fifteen very successful years in equine veterinary medicine. I excelled and focused on sport horse medicine, reproduction, neonatal care and geriatrics. My favorite companion animal areas of interest are preventative wellness care, dermatology, musculoskeletal disease and the human animal bond. I am enthusiastically committed to educating owners to provide knowledge that will enhance the quality of care to our animal companions.
Currently I reside in Jefferson with my husband and two amazing sons. Raising my family with strong Christian morals, confidence, and dedicated work ethic is a priority. As a child I grew up in Austinburg on my family’s horse farm with many animals to love and tend to. My siblings and I energetically cared for the horses, dogs, cats, goats, rabbits and chickens. My twin sister Rachel and I, along with the help of our youngest brother Jacob, own Miller Quarter Horses, a family partnership dedicated to breeding, raising and showing world class American Quarter Horses. I enjoy living near Lake Erie and try to find time for water skiing, kayaking and snow skiing.
I am dedicated to providing the highest level of care for your animals and making your visit to the Geneva Veterinary Clinic informative, productive and peaceful for you and your furry companions.
Dr. Melanie Richards
My name is Dr. Melanie Richards. I am an Ashtabula native who graduated from Edgewood High School. During high school, I started shadowing at Country Doctor as part of the Ashtabula Education Service Center Mentorship Experience. I guess they liked me here, because they kept me around. I worked as an assistant through undergrad and veterinary school. In between I earned my bachelor’s degree in Biology and Chemistry form Lake Erie College. I was also president of IDA (our dressage riding team) and a tutor for Organic Chemistry. After graduating from The Ohio State University 8 long years later, I came back to work here as an associate veterinarian. I am fortunate to work in all four of our fantastic clinics with all of our amazing team members.
My passion for veterinary medicine comes from the opportunity to serve the human animal bond. I love seeing patients through all their life stages from the first puppy visit through their golden years. I have a particular interest in surgery, nutrition, internal medicine, cardiology, and neurology. But my favorite appointments are still new puppy and kitten visits.
Outside of work, I'm kept busy running my small hobby farm milking (and spoiling) my small herd of ADGA lamanchas and Nigerian dwarf goats. I also have two senior horses, Bud and Diana, who have been with me since I was in 4-H. I am an active volunteer with Ashtabula County 4-H and Greyhound Adoption of Ohio. I also enjoy hiking and running with my greyhound, Arthur.
Dr. Marla Hall
Hi, I am Dr. Hall and I have been practicing veterinary medicine for 7 years now. Being a veterinarian has been a lifelong goal for me as I grew up on our family horse farm in rural Pennsylvania and participated in 4-H, Morgan Youth and showed and rode Morgans competitively which gave me many interactions with veterinarians while attending to sick or wounded animals. After graduating high school I attended Lake Erie College where I obtained my BS in biology while playing basketball and riding on the IHSA team. My next journey after Lake Erie was most

My name is Jessica and I am a registered veterinary technician. I have been working in clinics as a tech for a little over 2 years and an assistant before that. I have always been an animal lover, I was the child in the neighborhood who would bring home stray pets and ask to keep them. I would even attempt to rescue injured wild animals to bring them to the vet for help. We would always have an animal, or three, in the house with us. I turned my passion into a career after graduating from the Veterinary Technician Program at Cuyahoga County Community College.
I currently have two cats and have recently adopted a heavy pied cockatiel and will grow my family here soon, marrying my fiance, Michael, this coming fall. I can't wait to meet you and your furry family members!
Hi, I'm Deana Kelly. I am a Registered Veterinary Technician, since 1987. I love working at The Geneva Veterinary Clinic and have split the past 6 years between here and Country Doctor. All the ladies here are a joy to work with, as well as sharing our love for animals together.
I have been married to my husband, Mickey, for 26 years this summer. We have one daughter, Meg who is a recent graduate of the Ohio State University with a major in Animal Science. We live on a small hobby farm in Sheffield Township. We own a team of Belgian Draft Horses (Chip, Ladd), 3 Miniature Horses (Gracie, Rayne, Penny), 1 Donkey (Weezer), and lots of barn kitties. In the house we have our Dachshund (Cora), my daughter's Dachshund (Heidi) and anywhere between 8-10 cats at any given time; most of which I had to hand raise for one reason or another. All my animals have given me such joy and have taught me many life lessons.
In my free time, I enjoy cooking, crocheting, and driving my Draft Horses and Minis.
