Melani French, Lead Veterinarian

Dr. French knew she wanted to be a veterinarian since she was four years old and has worked in the veterinary field since 2005 as a veterinary assistant, receptionist, and then as a doctor! She graduated in the top ten of her class with her DVM degree from Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine (VMRCVM) at Virginia Tech after completing her undergraduate degree (Biological Sciences) at Hampton University in Hampton, VA.

Dr. French grew up in Manassas, VA and returned there post-graduation to serve as a small animal general practitioner as well as a relief surgeon before setting her sights on Woodbridge and joining Crossroads in November of 2016. Her professional interests include advanced diagnostic imaging such as radiology and ultrasound, surgery, and internal medicine. When she manages to have some free time, she enjoys spending time mentoring and coaching youth groups and hanging out with her family, friends, and her 2 shih-tzu mixes, Tanner and Jake! Dr. French will quickly admit that she has a soft spot for WFDs—white fluffy dogs—and she can’t wait to meet yours!


Kent Olson, Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Kent Olson founded Crossroads Animal Care Center in 1998 and has been practicing veterinary medicine in Northern Virginia since 1986. As a young boy, he always had an interest in animals, behavior, and medicine, so becoming a veterinarian was a clear choice for him. He earned his DVM from Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech (VMRCVM).

His favorite part of working at Crossroads Animal Care Center is working with a team of doctors and staff who share his mission of helping pets stay healthy. As both our leading veterinarian and medical director, Dr. Olson has a special interest in ultrasound and has completed over 10 advanced courses, accumulating over 200 hours of continuing education in ultrasound. One of the most memorable experiences of his career was when he received a call from the State Department in which the caller said, “We have a situation here. The queen of Spain (Queen Sofia) is here, and her dog is ill.

Although he has accomplished a great deal in his veterinary career, his greatest accomplishment is his wonderful family. He is happily married to Delane and has four children. He also has a German Shorthaired Pointer named Charlie, a cat named Oscar, and a guinea pig named Koach. In his spare time, he likes to travel, go salt water fishing, scuba dive, and work on home improvement projects.
