Alison Roth, DVM, is in her third year with Hassinger Equine Service fulfilling her goal to excel in the field of equine sports medicine and better the equine athlete. She graduated from NC State with a BS in Animal Science and received her veterinary degree from Oklahoma State. Alison has been riding since the age of ten when she started working for a western pleasure trainer. Most recently she has ridden for a NCHA futurity and aged event champion as well as a PRCA steer roper. She hopes to show cutting horses in the near future. She loves to travel and spend time with her family and friends.
Amy Hassinger wears many hats! She is the Director of Marketing & Advertising for the vet practice and currently the Director of the Rehabilitation Clinic, focusing full-time on turning it into a world class rehab and conditioning venue. She is a graduate of Park University with a degree in Management and Finance. Her years of experience as a rider, trainer, stable manager and farm owner compliment Hassinger Equine's focus as a full service sports medicine and rehabilitation practice. Together, she and Dr. Hassinger are developing a practice focused on the practical needs of horse owners, riders and trainers.
Dr. Hassinger, Veterinarian, is a graduate of North Carolina State University and Auburn University School of Veterinary Medicine. He has been actively practicing veterinary medicine for 25 years. In 2003, Dr. Hassinger narrowed his focus and opened Hassinger Equine Service in Aberdeen, NC as a sports medicine and performance centered practice dedicated to equine lameness, performance management, rehabilitation and imaging. "There has always been a need for a rehabilitation clinic, run by "horse people," to support the efforts of equine veterinarians nationwide." Dr. Hassinger is an active rider both at Hassinger Farm and at shows along the East Coast.

Lisa Varney, a retired RN & a professional actor, has been involved with HESM for over 10 years. Wherever there is a need at the farm, you will find her filling in. HESM allows Lisa to combine several of her greatest strengths; organization, management, attention to detail and a lifelong love of all things equine. Her favorite job on the farm is creating beautiful, seasonal, flower scapes. She grew up riding in Pony Club in Ct., spent a year as a working student with a Grand Prix dressage rider in Ma., and then played polo for several years. After a several year hiatus, Lisa is planning to return to riding this year. This time trying her hand in hunter/jumpers under the tutelage of Amy Hassinger.
