Doctors

Roger E. Nix, D.V.M.

Dr. Nix, originally from Southern Indiana, graduated from Purdue’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 1982 and has been practicing in the Indianapolis area ever since. His clinical interests include canine pediatrics and geriatrics, and his passion for animal joint health inspired the creation of a company to manufacture JointCharge, an all-natural Hyaluronic Acid-based joint supplement that he and other veterinarians use to treat age-related joint issues in dogs and cats.

In his free time, Dr. Nix enjoys spending time with his wife and sons. Their family also includes one dog and a flock of chickens devoted to creating a steady supply of fresh eggs. He counts flying, sailing, and traveling as his favorite activities interests outside of the hospital. In addition to his reputation as a trusted Carmel Veterinarian, Dr. Nix also owns a practice in Fishers, IN.

Julie

Julie

I have been in veterinary medicine for the past 30 years, 20 years of it working in busy emergency practice and running the ICU department. I have been married to my best friend for 3 years. We have two children, Ashley, a stay at home mom to our two grandsons, and Nick, who is a professional pilot. We love to be outdoors, hiking, biking, camping, kayaking, fishing and sitting by a fire with our grandsons. Life is good.

Veterinary Assistants

Megan

Megan McKinney

Megan finished at Penn Foster with her career diploma as a veterinarian assistant in 2012 and she’s been working in the veterinary health field for the past year and a half. She has three furry family members— a mixed breed dog named Buzz, Colby a Beagle and Lyla a Chihuahua mix. She lives in Sheridan with son Cameron.

Megan loves all animals but especially pigs, describing them as “super cute” with “mellow (for the most part)” personalities. Her affection for pigs grew throughout the decade she spent showing them in 4H, a tradition that carries on today with her son.

Karlee

Karlee started her career in veterinary medicine as a junior in high school for a large and small animal practice. She continued working at a veterinary clinic while attending college where she received a degree in criminal justice. She quickly realized the veterinary field was her calling. She resides in Sheridan with her six fur babies, Doberman mix (Dobie), two Chihuahuas (Nugget & Gypsy), a chiweenie (Sassy), a cocker spaniel mix (Norman), and a tabby cat (Davidson). In her spare time she enjoys couponing, spending time outside, naps, riding motorcycles and spending time with her Gran.
