Tia oversees our front receptionist area as well as most office managing and implementation of products or ideas that take place in the hospital.

Juliane complimented our hospital in early 2011. She was originally hired as kennel when our kennel manager, Doreen, moved out of state after being with us for 18 years. We were hoping to find someone to fill those shoes and stay a long time as well and it looks like that is what happened with Juliane. What an asset to our boarding and bathing units and her diligence in making sure your pet is taken care of with complete compassion. Juliane quickly learned all areas in our hospital and has become an excellent Technician Assistant in our surgical and laboratory areas while still overseeing the pets in the back. Juliane and her husband became the proud parents of a little baby boy in 2014 born the same birthdate as Dr. Mole. They also own this lovable golden named Deliah.
