Meet Our Staff

Rosa: receptionist

Rosa came to us in 2005 because she had an interest in perhaps becoming a Licensed Veterinary Technician, but decided that was not for her.  She later agreed to take on the task of being the receptionist/office manager and has done a wonderful job for us ever since.  She is bilingual and very knowledgeable about the needs of your pets.  She is a kind and compassionate person who understands that sometimes financial concerns influence how much care we can provide for our four-legged friends.

Paula: receptionist/vet assistant

Paula is a native to the Mini-Cassia region and used to work as a receptionist at our clinic.  She left in 2005 to spend more time with her husband and the ranch.  Happily for us, she is back part time now helping both up front at the reception desk and in back keeping keeping our patients clean and comfortable.  Her dog, Chipper, grew up at this clinic and often greeted clients with his cheerful smile.  Sadly, he passed away late 2013.  Paula has several dogs, a few cats, a horse and cattle.  She enjoys living out in the country watching the cows tend their calves.  She has been an active member of the Hereford Association for many years and is quite knowledgeable about cattle in general. 

Kelly: licensed veterinary technician

Kelly is a 2012 graduate of the Veterinary Technician program at CSI and has worked with us since 2011.  She is licensed by the State of Idaho as a Veterinary Technician (LVT) and as such, does lots of continuing education courses to keep up with current information.  She is from Idaho Falls and has lived in the area since moving here to attend CSI.  Studying to become a LVT fulfills a lifelong dream to have a career where she can work with pets and their owners.  We feel very fortunate to have such a kind and well-educated individual providing care for our patients. 

Megan: veterinary assistant

Megan was born and raised here in Minidoka County and has worked with us since 2001.  She has a great love of all animals, from horses and cattle to dogs, cats and birds.  She particularly enjoys having the opportunity to provide nursing care for wild birds like hawks, owls and even the occasional eagle!  She has 3 dogs and a cat and hopes one day to have a horse of her own.
