I was born and raised in Bonne Terre and graduated from North County High School in 1999. After high school, I attended Jefferson College for two years and received an Associate of Applied Science in Veterinary Technology. I have been a Registered Veterinary Technician since 2001. I started with the Animal Medical Center in November 2006. I currently live with my husband Billy, my daughter Hailey, son Blant, granddaughter Paisley, and our mixed animal family of dogs, horses, cats, and rabbit. Outside of work I enjoy camping and spending time with my family.
Currently, I live in Park Hills with my wonderful husband, our amazing daughters and son, our dogs Jax and Bailey, and our cat, Goofy. I was raised in Park Hills and graduated from Central High School in 2005. I earned an Associate of Applied Science degree in Veterinary Technology from Jefferson College in 2007 and became a Registered Veterinary Technician. I have been employed with the Animal Medical Center since March of 2006. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and watching our kids play sports.
I was raised in Bismarck and graduated from Bismarck High School in 2006. I decided to pursue my career in the animal healthcare field so I attended Jefferson College and earned my Associate of Applied Science degree in Veterinary Technology. I earned my certified Veterinary Assistant certificate in 2011 and my Registered Veterinary Technician degree in 2014. I have been with AMC since March 2012. I currently live in Bonne Terre with my dog Bear, and my three cats. I'm a huge spay/neuter advocate, and I love to educate clients about their pet health and nutritional needs. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, lake days, camping, going to concerts, riding ATVs, and spending time with family and friends.
Jennifer started working with animals in 2007 as a kennel assistant and groomer. She then went to school to become a veterinary technician and worked at a clinic in Crystal City until she got married and started a family. She joined the Animal Medical Center in February 2020, and enjoys the amazing work family she gained! She lives with her husband, Chad, and her two sons, her rottweiler Oakley, and two cats. She enjoys as much family time as she can get playing with her two boys.
I was born and raised in the Park Hills/Leadington area and graduated from Central High School in 1999. I have enjoyed working in the animal health field since 2000 with the Veterinary Clinic of Mineral Area, before I started working with the Animal Medical Center in March of 2006 when the company opened. Outside of work, I reside with my loving husband, our two dogs, one cat, and a herd of cattle and chickens. We enjoy watching dirt track racing, camping, and riding side by sides. Helping people keep their furbabies healthy is just one reason I love working at the Animal Medical Center! My husband and I keep busy out of work with all our hobbies, our time together, and our business of Burch Fence. Above all else, family comes first!
Karen joined us in November of 2020, and previously worked at East Suburban Animal Clinic in Ohio for 6 years. She is originally from Ohio, but lives here now with her husband Mike, and her two dogs, Bella and Twinkle. She enjoys fishing, bingo, and watching sprint car racing. She loves the staff she works with here at the Animal Medical Center, and getting to see and meet all our wonderful furry patients. Her goal after retirement is to own a Capuchin Monkey.
Maddie joined us at the Animal Medical Center in February of 2020, previously having worked at Dashing Doe and Gliks. Originally from Potosi, Maddie is currently attending Jefferson College pursuing a veterinary technician degree in the hopes of continuing with us as a registered veterinary technician. She enjoys spending time with her family and shopping. She lives with her parents, her little sister, and her dogs, Avery, Sage, and her Chinchilla Teddy. She has always wanted to work with animals since she was a little girl, and her job with us allows her to do just that while learning and enjoying an amazing work family.
I am originally from Pevely, MO, I moved to Bonne Terre in 2002. I live with my husband, 3 teenage daughters, 2 dogs, and 2 cats. I worked as a preschool teacher for 13 years and as much as I loved teaching, I was ready for a new career path. I have been employed with Animal Medical Center since August 2021 and can not express how much I love this new path and the work family that I have gained. Outside of work I enjoy going to all the school events my girls are involved in, and spending time with family.
BigFootStaff Therapy Cat, Lunch Food Inspector, (the real boss)
Previously owned by a client, a serious injury caused him to need to stay with the clinic for several months, whereupon the staff fell in love and asked his previous owner if we could keep him. Happily for us, they agreed!
BigFoot enjoys Eating, Sleeping, Eating, and Sleeping.
Occasionally he will chase a treat for exercise, and mostly likes to check out everyone’s lunch. He likes to be hugged/carried upon your shoulders and drool into your ear.
He lives full time with the Staff at AMC.
He likes to give a superior look to dogs and cats as they pass his resting place in our treatment area. He also likes the variety of different lunches he gets to try to get ahold of. Did we mention he likes the food?
BigFoot is the mascot of our Facebook page.
