I am the proud father of three boys and one girl, a humble husband to my loving wife Dr. Katie, and a University of Missouri Rolla graduate. I enjoy exploring different opportunities to help serve our customers, employees, and community. It truly gives me joy to help others and their pets, and that is why I have taken on the task of growing R Veterinary.
Hi, my name is Samantha Emery. I have worked for the animal hospital since 2014. I started out as a veterinary technician and in 2016, shortly after Dr. Katie and James Rericha purchased the clinic, I began working as the office manager and am now the accounting manager for all of the R Veterinary locations. I have three sons and quite a few four-legged critters. We all love being outdoors anytime that we can!! We enjoy hunting, fishing, racing, working in our garden, and spending time with our family.
Hello, I'm Matt. I became CFO for R Veterinary in late 2023. As CFO I play a critical role in shaping the financial strategy of the business, managing it's financial resources, and providing leadership on various financial and strategic matters.

Tora Seals, DVM
I graduated from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine in 2015. I moved to southwestern Missouri to practice large animal medicine, but have been exclusively spay/neuter and emergency medicine for the last 3 years. I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine but my professional interests are surgery and exotic animal medicine.
My family is from the greater St. Louis area, so I was excited to have the opportunity to move back. I live with an entire pack of dogs, two tortoises, one bearded dragon, one quaker parrot, one rabbit, and a Jersey cow named Margo!
