Connie Puckett, Customer Service Representative (Anna Office)
I joined the Tri-County Veterinary Service team 12 years ago. I have always had a love for animals and my parents always joked that if it had fur and four legs I would make it my pet.
Growing up I had numerous dogs and cats, and even a chicken, but my favorite pets were my two horses. My love for horses led me to volunteer at an Equestrian Therapy program for over ten years, and I even became a certified teacher; I taught part-time for three years. I am currently blessed with 2 Bull Mastiffs, named Bella and Brutus. I sometimes foster and volunteer for the American Bull Mastiff Rescue Service.
Cindy Hughes, Customer Service Representative (Anna Office)
I have been an administrative assistant at Tri-County Veterinary Service since 1999. I enjoy all aspects of my position, and especially enjoy the opportunity to play with all the animals that come in. How great is it to work every day and spend time with animals? I have 4 cats and a goldendoodle, Zoey, Casper, Simon, Ginger and Russell. When not at work I enjoy shopping and going out to eat with my friends. I also enjoy attending church with my family and father, and most of all I love spending time with my son, daughter, and three wonderful grandchildren!
Derik Bey, Customer Service Representative (Sidney Office)
My work with Tri-County Veterinary Service started when I was just in high school. Initially, I worked in the kennel caring for animals while boarding. In 2011, I took on additional responsibility working in the front office, as well as continuing to work in the kennel. I love my job because I am able to work with animals and see how their lives have improved.
I have one dog, named Yogi, and he is a real “Goofball”. Away from work I enjoy spending time with my family, walking the dog and playing basketball.
Alexis Regula, Customer Service Rep/Inventory and Marketing Manager (Anna Office)
I joined the Tri-County team in the summer of 2018. My favorite part of this job is being able to see the improvement of the lives of animals and their owners. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy playing with my cat, Charlotte, singing at my church, and participating in activities with my family and friends. I look forward to meeting you when you bring your pets into the Anna office

I have been working as a veterinary technician with Tri-County Veterinary Service since 2011. I am a graduate of the Vet Tech Institute in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Cindy Woodward, Business Manager
I transplanted to the area in June 1986, when my husband Tim became an associate veterinarian at Tri-County Veterinary Service. I started with Tri-County in 1999, handling accounts payable, accounts receivable and payroll. I assumed many of the practice management responsibilities in 2001. Born and raised a farm girl near Bluffton, Ohio, and a graduate of The Ohio State University, I especially enjoy the livestock-related part of the practice and customer service.
I was a 4-H advisor in Shelby County for 24 years, am a church pianist, and accompany choirs at both Jackson Center and Botkins Local Schools. In my free time I enjoy reading, sports and spending time with family, especially my grandson!
