|Mikey-Greeter - I am a very lucky cat to have such an important job of not only making my family smile every day here but our clients as well! I try my hardest to say hi to every one!|
Kim - Practice Manager: I have been in the veterinary field for almost 20 years now. I have done everything in the animal hospital from kennel, receptionist, veterinary assistant, & veterinary technician. I have 2 fur babies a 13 year old cat Cutie Pie and 6 year old Chihuahua Charlie. I also have a little human baby Dominic as well who was born in 2017. I love to spend time with my family and friends, doing anything outside, and reading.
I'm excited to be a part of the Deer Run Animal Hospital family and can't wait to see where this brings all of us together!
Beth-Veterinary Assistant: I have always enjoyed working and spending time with animals. I worked at South Suburban Humane Society for three years and also worked at a pet boarding facility before joining Deer Run Animal Hospital in 2006. I am happy to gain the experience of working with animals in a hospital setting and join a team where everyone is committed to giving quality care.
I share my home with three great cats and have two sweet horses, Jet and Josie, in my barn. I believe that pets are a blessing and a part of the family. In my spare time, I love going to flea markets and resale shops looking for treasures and bargains. I also enjoy going to festivals and county fairs during the summer.
Chanell-Veterinary Assistant & Client Care Specialist: I am currently a student at Indiana University Northwest pursuing a career in Dental Hygiene. I have always had a passion for working with animals. During my first two years of college at Purdue in West Lafayette, I had a wonderful opportunity to be able to volunteer in Purdue's Veterinary Teaching Hospital caring for large animals and clients in the oncology ward. In May 2010 I began working at Deer Run Animal Hospital to continue to pursue this passion. I started as a veterinary assistant and now also work at the front desk as a Client Care Specialist
I love every minute of my job and since working here I have grown and learned so much about myself. I never take a minute of my time here for granted. I most enjoy the moments when I make eye contact with an animal I come across in the hospital and I see him/her looking back at me with appreciation, and the feeling is mutual!
In June 2009, I opened my home to a stray black and white kitten named "Bella". She is most definitely the baby in my house and gets her way whenever she sees to it. When she is not napping, I more than likely will find her sitting in the window trying to catch birds and squirrels passing by or even playing inside an empty cereal box.
In the summer of 2002, my family and I rescued a black lab mix from the Hobart Humane Society. Her name is "Pez" and she enjoys going for long walks, rides, and eating carrots, which are her favorite treats.
Some of my other interests include baking, traveling, scrapbooking, spending time with my niece and learning about sea turtles.
Stephanie - Veterinary Assistant & Client Care Specialist
I’m currently a veterinary assistant as well as a client care specialist here at Deer Run, with hopes to work my way up to becoming a tech. I started here in April of 2016, knowing nothing about what is really done in animal hospitals. I was interested in the position because I was a certified medical assistant and thought that would really help me out in working with the animals here.
This job has truly changed my life for the better. I’m even more passionate about animals now than I ever was, and I have always loved animals. I’ve grown so much from being here. Since starting here, I have taken in a six year old cat that was relinquished to me, her name is Dusty and she’s a cool kitty that everyone in my family adores. I also took in two four day old kittens that were abandoned. Sadly, they passed away. Since their death, I decided to take in another kitten, who, at the time, was 11 weeks old. His name is Jensen and he’s the cuddliest kitten ever! I also have two other pets, I have a Pompoochi (Pomeranian, Poodle, Chihuahua mix) named Jasper and a rabbit named George.
Aside from my fur babies, I also have a human baby! His name is Shane and he’s the best kid. He’s loved me working here because he gets to come here and see the office kitties. He’s shown so much interest in animals lately which makes me incredibly happy.
