Meet the Team

Dr. Bill Dudley, DVM

The very highest level of surgical skill is best achieved by experience. Over 45 years ago, Dr. Dudley began his practice by performing sophisticated orthopedic and neurosurgical procedures in Austin.  Over the years, Dr. Dudley has gained a wealth of post-graduate training through numerous courses and wet labs in various parts of the country.  No surgeon in the veterinary or human field can become extremely adept in all types of surgery; however, some surgeons develop a very high level of competence in selected types of surgeries.  Dr. Dudley's surgical experience can be defined by his success: he has performed over 28,000 soft tissue procedures, over 3,000 myelograms and spinal procedures and over 10,000 orthopedic procedures during his practice tenure.   

Jana Humplik, LVT, Surgical Technician

Jana brings significant surgical, general medicine and emergency room experience as well as a sunny personality. She received her degree in California and moved back to her home state of Massachusetts to work at the renowned Angell-Memorial (the second largest animal hospital in the country). She moved to Texas and received her RVT, making this the third state in which she is registered/certified.  Jana enjoys outdoor activities, yoga, and also has her Real Estate License.  She has four pets: Bodi and Charlie, her Dachshunds, Loki, her German Shorthair Pointer, and Flame, a Siamese cat.   

Michele Coppinger, Surgical Technician

Michele started her career with Dr. Dudley as a kennel technician more than 30 years ago, quickly finding her place as a technician on the surgical team.  In addition to working for Dr. Dudley, she honed her skills at several veterinary specialty hospitals in the Austin area, accumulating 16 years of surgical, orthopedic and oncology experience.  Michele brings the perfect blend of familiarity with Dr. Dudley's practice and knowledge gained during her time away.  In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, horseback riding, swimming and taking care of her large "furry" family.  

Kinsey Crea, Surgical Technician

Kinsey began as a veterinary technician for Animal Trustees of Austin in 2015. She had always loved animals, but it was there that she realized her passion for the veterinary field. She has experience in both general medicine and surgery. In her free time, she is a trapeze artist and loves to cross stitch. She lives in Austin with her husband and Olde English Bulldogge, Roxy, who she affectionately refers to as her old lady.
