Dr. Mike Hicks
Dr. Mike Hicks
Owner, Veterinarian
Dr. Mike Hicks has been intrigued by medicine since he was a young man, and he’s never been one to back down from a challenge. By the time he was in high school, he knew he wanted to pursue a career in the challenging yet fulfilling field of veterinary medicine! Every day, Dr. Hicks gets to make a difference in the lives of pets and their families as the owner of Fairfield Animal Hospital.

Dr. Hicks grew up in Augusta, Georgia with his parents and three sisters. His father’s career took the family to Texas, and Dr. Hicks has considered himself a Texan since the late 1970s. After obtaining his undergraduate degree in biomedical science from Texas A&M University, he attended Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in the spring of 1992. He worked in a small-animal practice in Houston for one year, then a mixed-animal facility in Lufkin. In 1998, he accepted a position at an emergency clinic back in Houston.

After three years as a critical care veterinarian, Dr. Hicks decided to pursue his longtime dream of practice ownership. He opened Fairfield Animal Hospital’s doors in September of 2001 in order to provide top-notch service to the pet owners of Cypress. Medically, Dr. Hicks is fond of surgery, wound management, and internal medicine cases. Most of all, though, he enjoys the day-to-day interaction with his clients and their beloved pets. He never tires of hearing about his patients’ home lives!

Dr. Hicks is a proud father to three fantastic sons, all graduates of Texas A&M University. His eldest, Justin, is in the oil and gas sector and works in the Energy Corridor of Houston. His middle son, Casey, has is a physical therapist. Trey, his youngest, earned his BS and Master’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering.

Dr. Hicks currently shares his home with three dogs under five pounds - a rescued Chihuahua named Pecos, Brulée the miniature Poodle, and a Yorkie who goes by Jethro. In his time away from the clinic, Dr. Hicks enjoys golfing and fishing with his sons, spending time in the Texas hill country, and watching Aggie football. He’s also a trail veterinarian for the famous Iditarod Sled Dog Race—every year, he makes the trip to Alaska to tend to the event’s amazing canine athletes!

Jennifer
Jennifer
Lead Veterinary Technician
Ever since she can remember, Jennifer has wanted to spend her time helping animals in need. The love that she feels when she helps an animal in need makes it all worth it!

Jennifer was born in Puerto Rico but grew up in Virginia Beach. She started here at Fairfield Animal Hospital in the fall of 2002, only a year after Dr. Hicks opened the clinic. Jennifer confirmed that she’d found her true calling a year later, when she helped perform a C-section on a Golden retriever. As she was handed puppy after puppy to stimulate their breathing, she knew she was doing what she was meant to do.

Outside of her interests in the veterinary world, Jennifer prefers to stay active in the outdoors by mountain biking, camping, and going to the beach. She takes part in a lot of runs, obstacles courses, and mud challenge races—the act of pushing herself physically and getting dirty is quite a thrill!

At home, Jennifer lives with her wonderful son and daughter, as well as a pair of cats named Mork and Mindy. Mork is Mr. Personality and always wants to be right alongside Jennifer, while Mindy prefers to lay low and watch from a distance.

As one of Fairfield Animal Hospital’s Veterinary Assistants, Jessica is able to do just that every day.

Julie
Julie
Client Care Specialist
Julie used to work for a school district, and had the summers free once the spring semester ended. One summer, she decided to get a job at a veterinary hospital and fell in love with the profession right away! She’s been a part of the Fairfield Animal Hospital family since 2007.

A Houston native, Julie attended school to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician and then began her career in veterinary medicine immediately afterward. After nearly 15 years of working as a Tech, she decided it was time for a change, but had no desire to leave the pets and clientele that she’d come to know and love. That’s when Julie became a receptionist to best serve the pets and animal owners of the area.

Julie and her husband have been married for over 20 years, and have two sons and a daughter. They currently live with seven dachshunds and a dachshund mix, Brandee, who isn’t told she’s not a full-blooded dachshund so as not to hurt her feelings. When Julie’s daughter whispered to Brandee that she wasn’t a purebred, Brandee’s response was a short, menacing growl!

In her spare time, Julie enjoys being outdoors and spending time in her garden; she has a special fondness for planting orchids.
