Kayla Boyer, DVM, Owner
Dr. Boyer is a native of Oklahoma, where she attended the Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
After graduating in 1995, Dr. Boyer practiced medicine in Maryland in a predominantly equine practice. Dr. Boyer decided to move to Arizona based on her experiences working on the Hopi Indian Reservation as an extern. She has been practicing small animal medicine exclusively since relocating to Tucson in 1996.
Because Dr. Boyer values her client relationships, she makes providing information and education a core value of her practice.
In 2005, Dr. Boyer began taking flying lessons to obtain her private pilots license.
Dr. Boyer enjoys the animal and human interaction of preventive medicine, and the diagnostic challenges of internal medicine. Her overall favorite area of veterinary care is in surgery.
Outside of the hospital, Dr. Boyer enjoys outdoor activities, such as camping, hiking and “day trips” on her motorcycle.
Dr. Boyer shares her home with her partner, Mary, and their three dogs Loki, Maya, and John Doe. Dr. Boyer actively pursues the newest techniques and science on the standard of care, disease prevention, and management of chronic health conditions.
Hey humans, my name’s Emilio. My three brothers and I were abandoned on the doorstep of Speedway Veterinary in October of 2012 when I was only 8 weeks old. The staff took me in and I have kept them on their toes ever since.
When I am not loving on clients or prowling for food, you can find me curled up on the printer in the lobby. I enjoy introducing myself to our patients, chasing my brother Oliver around the clinic, and hunting that pesky red dot.
Oliver tells me it’s the humans playing games, but I have my doubts. The humans tell me I’m mischievous, but they all seem to love me a whole lot.
I’m Charley, Emilio’s annoying little sister
I was brought in with 2 of my siblings in the spring of 2017 when I was 1 week old. Malnourished, cold and a small chance of survival, Dr. Boyer and her staff were able to nurse me back to health. Unfortunately my siblings did not make it.
Everyone here calls me a troll as I like to hide on top or behind things and glare judgingly at everyone, but isn’t that what I am supposed to do as a cat? It has taken me awhile to come out of my shell, but I am slowly becoming more brave and may one day even visit with the people who come through the door, until then I’ll leave the greeting and treat stealing to my older brother and let him get in trouble for it!
After moving from Illinois, I began my employment at Speedway Veterinary Hospital in 2007.
I lucked out in finding such a incredible place to work where I am able to utilize my knowledge and skills, and have an amazing team and Doctor to work with.
I have a passion for so many aspects of Veterinary Medicine, but there is no better feeling than helping an ill pet recover and getting them back home with their family. The opportunity to build a relationship with our amazing clients and watch their pets grow is a part of this job I cherish.
When not at Speedway, I share my home with my husband and two children, as well as: Skyy- an easy going Chow mix, Bowser- a sweet Miniature Pinscher, Harley- a crabby Ragdoll, Anubis- a Maine Coon mix that thinks he’s a puppy, and Boulder- a Sulcata Tortoise.
My hobbies include any and all types of craft projects and rooting for the Chicago Cubs.
Robert Lumsden moved to the states in 2004 from New Brighton, England.
He is married to his best friend who is also working in the veterinary field.
He has a total of six pets which include two dogs (Jess and Jane), two cats (Red and Blu), and two cockatiels (Kane and Able).
Originally, he went to school as a medical assistant, but a lucky break showed him that veterinary care was the field for him.
In his spare time he enjoys camping with his wife and dogs, fishing anywhere he can, drawing, and of course the guitar. He loves his work and enjoys the opportunity to work with the Dr. and staff. He builds an amazing bond with every animal that comes through the door, healthy or sick.
Hello! My name is Tina Pant
I was born in Long Beach, CA and moved to Tucson, AZ in 1990.
I have three children, Michael, Jason, and Demetria. Four grandchildren and one great grandchild.
I have such a love for animals I volunteered and became a foster mom when I could.
Now that my children are grown I decided to go back to school and get my certificate as a veterinary assistant.
Speedway Veterinary Hospital has become my second home, and I couldn’t have found a more compassionate place to work.
I live with my three fur babies: Cowboy is a 12 yr old chow mix, Sadie is a 12 yr old Australian Shepherd mix, and Louie is a 7 yr old Boston Terrier.
In my spare time I like to read, renovate my house and spend time refurbishing furniture.
I have been living in Arizona since July of 2015. The majority of my life has been spent on the east coast from Massachusetts to the sunny state of Florida.
From a young age I had aspirations of having a career in veterinary medicine and started that dream as a veterinary technician in central Florida.
Loving Arizona life, I am thrilled to have found such an amazing practice and have the opportunity to work with some phenomenal people here.
I have two fur babies at home, a chihuahua named Neeka, and a fluffy cat named Mr. Jeffery. I also have a ball python named Rafael. In my spare time I thoroughly enjoy being outdoors, especially near water. I also am a bit of a gear head and enjoy tinkering with cars as well as play guitar.
Robin Creson was born in Fort Worth, Texas but has been in Tucson for over twenty-five years.
She lives with her husband RJ and their lives are run by their adorable, sweet, and demanding three year old boy named Eric.
Robin has worked at Speedway Veterinary since 2007.
She took a short sabbatical to help raise their son and is now back part-time.
Robin loves the supportive and welcoming crew of Speedway Veterinary and the very caring head-honcho Dr. Boyer that lets her work only a couple days a week but still feel like an important and valuable member of the team.
One of the things that drew Robin back into working were the clients who have always been so sweet and friendly.
Says Robin; “We at Speedway have the absolute best clients, to the ones who come in and brighten your day with a box of donuts to the ones who simply come in smiling and their joy is contagious.”
In her spare time (when she finds it) she enjoys crafting, watching movies and taking her little guy on adventures.
Speedway Veterinary is an amazing place to have an opportunity to work. I love working with animals and my co-workers have been some of my best friends. I cannot put into works how blessed I am to have a boss like Dr. Boyer who strives for you to excel at what you do and will do anything to help you reach your full potential.
Robin lives with her husband RJ, their 14 year old Calico Geet-Geet, 1 year old cat Krafty, and the newly added Veruca; a Pit-Bull mix puppy.
