Veterinary Technician

Megan is a returning Licensed Veterinary Technician (LVT) to our clinic and we are so glad to have her back! She has been serving as an LVT since 2003 and has shared her experience at a variety of places. She worked at an emergency clinic, a zoo and at other daytime veterinary clinics. Currently, she is also an Adjunct Instructor for the Veterinary Technology Program at Baker College. Her passion is being involved with exotic animal medicine, especially reptiles. In Megan’s spare she enjoys painting, reading, taking care of her reptiles, watching Star Trek and having fun up north with her husband and two daughters.


Office Manager

Aubrey is the office manager of our clinic and she is responsible for many of the behind-the-scenes details that make our hospital successful. Aubrey is one of the familiar faces you will see in the reception area and she is more than willing to answer any questions or phone calls. Aubrey lives with her husband Ryan, and four cats Cabby, Calvin, Yoda and Boba (pictured). She loves to be outside watching the birds or gardening! She also loves spending time with her family, traveling and going to concerts. Aubrey’s favorite quote: “life is too short to be anything but happy…” 🙂



Alyssa is an assistant to our doctors here at the hospital. She is a quick learner and does her job thoroughly, yet efficiently. You can easily trust her caring for your fur-babies as she treats them like her own. The main reason she wanted to work here is because she loves animals, especially her own dog named Reggie. One of Alyssa’s favorite things to do is to go up north with her family. They take the boat out and soak up the sunshine! She also likes playing and watching sports and going to concerts as she is always listening to music.



Teresa is one of our friendly assistants here at the clinic. Wherever help is needed, Teresa is there and we appreciate everything she does. At home she has her own zoo: two dogs (Sissy and Annabelle), three cats (Smokey, Pumpkin and Samson), a fancy leopard gecko (Banshee), turkeys and chickens! She used to have even more animals on the farm. In her busy schedule, Teresa makes time for her hobbies. She enjoys horseback riding, gardening, baking and reading. Family is also important to her and she is proud of her four daughters and nine grandchildren. Come on in and say hi to Teresa!

Martha will be one of the first smiling faces you see when you arrive in the building. She has been a valued staff member since 2003 and is a great source of information when clients have questions. At home, Martha keeps busy with her husband, children and grandchildren, along with her dog named Fergie. In her spare time she enjoys gardening, cooking and canning.

Flynn is a big help in the clinic as our lead housekeeping personnel and is found working mostly behind the scenes. If you see her in the clinic, she will always greet you with her best smile. This fall, she is proud to say she will be attending the University of Michigan to pursue her dreams. In her spare time she enjoys playing with her dog, Judy and taking her for long walks.
