Darla is the office manager here at Parvin Animal Clinic and is also a vet assistant. She was born and raised in Baldwin County, AL. Since a young girl, she has had a passion for helping animals.

Darla has 14 years of veterinary experience and she has allowed her passion to become her purpose in life. Darla currently resides in Robertsdale with her husband Cacey and their daughter Jada. She has three dogs (Grizzly, Buster and Piper) and one cat (Marlee). Her hobbies include spending time at the softball park with her daughter, bike riding and boating.

I am originally from Birmingham, AL. I moved to the Gulf Coast about three years ago on the whim of exploration and furthering my career in animal services. In that time I finally found my passion and inspiration in aiding sick and injured pets. This career has not only enriched my life with compassion, but also with knowledge and purpose. The reward of helping not only our furry patients but also their human counterparts has truly left a positive impact on my own persona. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my Siberian Husky (Kayan), hiking and exploring new beaches, watching BBC, listening to the latest horror podcasts, fan girling over my anime series and listening to way too much indie-pop music.
- Mickey Mouse has sung "Happy Birthday" to me as an adult....and yes, I cried!

- I have seen well over 200 (yes, you read that right) two hundred live music events and concerts
