About Us

Leslie Andermann

Dr. Leslie Andermann is looking forward to becoming your "other" family doctor. She was born and raised just down the street from her practice in Burnside, on Brittany Tower Road. Her family has lived in the area for nearly 200 years - and has instilled in her the same values of honesty, integrity, and down-home work ethic that our community was built upon. Dr. Andermann is a 1999 graduate of St. Amant High School and went on to obtain both her Bachelor's and Doctorate degrees from LSU. She has worked in general practice, non-profit surgical centers, and also has experience as an ER clinician in Baton Rouge. Building this clinic has been her lifelong dream, and she is excited to bring veterinary medicine to the next level in South Gonzales, Burnside, Brittany, Sorrento, Darrow, Donaldsonville, and the River Parishes! Why drive further when compassionate care combined with the latest amenities are right down the street! We are excited to meet you soon!

Dr. Leslie Andermann spends her spare time at home with her boyfriend Tommy and their three dogs, Toby, Miss Flea, and Louis. They love the outdoors and can commonly be found fishing, going to dog parks, riding around in the Jeep, and spending time with family.


Jessika Hoven


My name is Jessika Hoven and I was born and raised in Gonzales, LA. I am a 2012 graduate of St. Amant High School. Currently, I attend River Parish Community College where I will earn prerequisites in hopes of applying to LSU Veterinary School. I've been working at Andermann Animal Clinic since before the doors opened and I couldn't be happier. Not many people can say they look forward to waking up early to go to work, but I can! Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to become a veterinarian and I'm finally pursuing my dream. I have a cat named Minnie Meowse who knows how to sit and stand pretty for a treat. My favorite thing to do outside of work is ride horses. Also, I enjoy spending time with family and friends.

My name is Kay Hecker and I am from Harahan, Louisiana. I am currently attending LSU, majoring in Animal Science. I hope to one day make it into vet school and become a vet just like Dr. Andermann! I have been working at Andermann Animal Clinic since the very beginning, and working here has definitely made me more determined in becoming a veterinarian! I have two pets of my own, a dog named Sugar, and a cat named Sammy. Besides work and school, I love hanging out with my friends and family, running, and tailgating for the Tigers!


My Yorkie is not just a dog she is my child. I trust Andermann Animal Clinic with her life. Very helpful and friendly staff and wouldn't go anywhere else!
