Amy, CVT

Amy has been a certified Veterinary Technician for over 21 years and still loves her work. She has mostly worked with cats and dogs, but also has worked with exotics and pocket pets.

It's important to her to make a positive difference in the lives of not only the animals, but their owners too! 

She shares her home with her 3 dogs (Paco, Libby Lu and Koda), 2 cats (Franny and Zoe), 2 birds (Chewy and Apricots) and finally 2 sugar gliders (Opid and Bugsley). She definitely has a full house! Pictured is her little Jack Russell/Chihuahua, Paco, all set for the beach!

Jillian always knew that she wanted to work with animals. Early on, she fell in love with the "big boys," especially Great Danes and elephants! She began working with animals as a groomer over 20 years ago and has never looked back.

Jillian has been working as a Veterinary Assistant and Reception Manager for several years. She also volunteers with the Great Dane Rescue of Minnesota, helping these giants find loving homes.

In her spare time, Jillian likes to spend time with family, watch Netflix, and hang out with her beloved pets. She currently has a Dane of her own, 5 Dachshunds, and a (very brave!) cat.

Receptionist/ Assistant

Connie grew up with a variety of pets including fish, turtles, hamsters, birds, cats, and dogs. Though she has always had a love for animals she was unsure of what her future career plans were, until she started working at a veterinary clinic in 2015.

Connie is currently attending the University of Wisconsin - River Falls to complete her Bachelor's of Science degree in Biomedical Science with a minor in Animal Science. She plans to apply to vet school afterwards in hopes of working with both companion and wildlife animals (specifically elephants, rhinoceros, hippopotamus, and other GIANTS)!

Outside of work, she loves to travel and explore new places and things. She currently resides with a spunky Schnauzer named Jiggy and a Guinea Pig name Bixby and hopes to be adding a great Dane to the family soon.

Lily joined our team in March 2018. She is currently in school for veterinary technician  at Argosy University. She currently lives in Saint Paul with her sister and boyfriend.

From a young age she always loved any type of animal. When she was younger she was always trying to help lost, injured or unwanted animals. This resulted in Lily having a wide range of different types of animals in the house. Lily has a special interest in wildlife, exotics, and animal rescue. She is also interested in animal photography!

When she has free time she loves to go to the zoo to take pictures, hang out with her family, especially her niece, and cuddle with her pit/lab, Sunny (AKA, “bun bun.”)
