Lujean El-Hadri

Patient Care Coordinator
Veterinary Assistant

Hi, I am Lujean! I am currently pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science in Health Sciences at the University of South Florida. Ever since I can remember I have always had an indescribable love for animals, which has developed into a passion. This passion drives me to do all I can to help assist in caring for our animals. Here at Safari Animal Clinic we treat your pets like our own, which means we go above and beyond to provide optimal care for your pet while always making them feel at home. We look forward to having your pet become a part of our family!

Brittany Domke

Patient Care Coordinator
Veterinary Assistant                                                     


Hello, my name is Brittany! I’ve been a Veterinary Assistant for Safari Animal Clinic for ten months and I absolutely love it. I graduated from University of South Florida with a Bachelor’s degree in Integrative Animal Biology. I have volunteered for Alachua humane society, Quantum leap farm incorporation and Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary. I plan on attending veterinary school and becoming a veterinarian for exotic animals specifically. I spend my free time hanging out with my dog Jameson and my rabbit Rosẻ. Safari Animal Clinic is a trusting veterinary practice and Dr. Nelmapius is one of the most caring Dr’s I have come across.

Ashlyn Frahn


Hi, I’m Ashlyn! I am a pre-veterinary student at the University of South Florida in my senior year. I plan to attend veterinary school next year, with a specific focus on cats, dogs, and exotic animals. In the future, I plan to open my own veterinary practice that serves companion animals and exotics, like snakes and other reptiles. I have a Shiba Inu named Suki and a crested gecko named Peanut who are my whole world. Thank you for trusting us with your precious fur babies, I can’t wait to meet you!
