CEO – Hospital Administrator
Caroline Vaughan graduated from Louisiana State University and earned a Master of Science degree in Marketing in 1995. After six years of being a Project Director for a local marketing research firm, she decided to join her husband at Bingle Vet. Over the last 19 years, Caroline’s goal has been to create a first-class veterinary practice with a focus on excellent patient care and exceptional service. She believes that a client’s visit is all about the experience when they walk in our doors to when they leave. Another extraordinary thing that Caroline implemented was our 10-min Guarantee – she does not believe that clients should have to be waiting a long time before their pet is seen by one of our professionals. She wants her clients to become Raving Fans and to always call if there are ever any problems or concerns. She believes that when you become a client at Bingle Vet you become a part of our family. Her latest accomplishment is building a Veterinary Franchise model – her goal is to bring the veterinary practice back to the doctors.
