Our People

CJ Champ, Hospital Manager

Ever since he was a young child, CJ has always wanted to work with animals.  He grew up in northeastern Iowa, and after working for years in retail, he moved to Boulder, Colorado, in 2009, where he landed his first job working with animals.  He started as a kennel technician at a "bed and breakfast" for pets and realized he had found his calling.

He visited Austin for the first time in 2010 and moved here with his cat a few months later.  He started working as a receptionist at a nearby boarding facility before finding a veterinary hospital on the east side of town.  He started there as a kennel technician, then became a receptionist, then perfected his veterinary technician skills before becoming the head veterinary technician.

CJ has been looking forward to joining the Firehouse team since he first stepped into the Davenport Village location in 2014.  He was very excited to make the transition over to step in as Hospital Manager for such a fantastic place.

CJ's veterinary passions include building and developing client relationships, client education, nutrition, pain management, and creating a stress-free environment for clients and patients.  He has been in Austin for seven years now and has no intention of leaving!  He lives with his partner of four years and their three big dogs (a labrador / pit bull mix, a German shepherd, and a special needs dalmatian / pit bull mix), a mischievous orange tabby cat, and an inquisitive bengal cat.  When not spending time managing his tiny zoo, he is usually busy working on his bachelor's degree in sociology.
