Learn Who We Are

  • Dr.

    I grew up in Lake Geneva, WI. I attended UW-River Falls and received a Bachlor's degree in biology. I then attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 2003. I have worked in private practice for 4 years, emergency medicine for 5 years and have spent the last year as resident veterinarian at Globe University for the veterinary technology program. Outside of work I love spending time with my husband Jeff and our two boys Max and Alex. We enjoy the outdoors biking, fishing, hiking, playing at parks or whatever else the boys want to do. I also enjoy arts and crafts. We have 2 dogs (Vader & Chewie), 2 cats (Nonolo and Conia), a guinea pig (Squeaks) and some fish.

    I love animals of all sizes so I love my job at Wausau Animal Hospital. I spend my time out of the hospital mostly with the family horses or reading with my two kitties. I may be a crazy cat lady in the making!

We currently have 3 dogs (Nico, Solo, and Jeppi) and 2 cats (Turtle and Bug). If you haven't guessed, Lexi named the cats. We also have 3 birds (a SunConcere, a Lovebird, and a Cockatiel). When I am not working I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, fishing, and watching the Packers.

    I studied veterinary technology at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. While in the Military I worked at Tripler Army Medical Center with research animals.

  • Jeff
    Office Manager

    I grew up in Sheboygan, WI and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Computer Science from Lakeland College. Before working at Wausau Animal Hospital I worked for Rasmussen College and often dressed as Rassy the Moose at local events. I played tennis in high school and college, and now enjoy karate at Premier Martial Arts in Schofield. My wife is veterinarian Jaime Gifford and we spend most of our free time with our two boys Max and Alex. My favorite part of managing the animal hospital is making sure our customers are happy, participating in local events, and petting all of the puppies that walk in the door.

  • Dr.

    I grew up on a farm in North Dakota and moved to Wisconsin with my husband Randy in 1994 after graduating Iowa State University School of Veterinary Medicine. My veterinary interests are preventive care, behavior and small mammal medicine (critters like rabbits and hamsters). I currently have 3 cats (Johnny, Hey and Simba) and 1 dog (Zoey). Simba can often be found helping Jessica behind the reception desk at the clinic in the afternoon. My non-veterinary interests include sewing, reading, & gardening. I assisted in starting up New Life Pet Adoption Center, and still spend quite a few hours volunteering there.

  • Dr.

    I grew up on a hobby farm in Merrill, WI. I studied equine science at UW-River Falls which led me to attend UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in May of 2014. I take pride in creating a strong bond with my clients and their pets and providing quality care throughout all life stages. I also enjoy poultry medicine. Away from the clinic, I enjoy horseback riding and fishing with my fiance Ryan, and our son Bryce. At home we have one horse (Nick), 2 Australian Cattle Dogs (Zip and Butch), chickens, and a guinea pig (Cooper).

  • "The staff took good care of Sophie. They knew who she was and said they enjoyed her. I was happy to hear she had attention during her overnight visit.
