Phoebe Pray: Veterinary Technician/Customer Service Representative

“My favorite part of the job is following a pet through their stay at the clinic, whether it be an annual exam or a dental/surgery. I enjoy reading, singing, and photographing my friends (when I’m not chasing around my one year old daughter).”

Emily Chaloult: Customer Service Representative

“I take pride in being a team player and helping out anywhere I can in the clinic. I also do a lot of the artwork you’ll see around the clinic (specifically the paintings on the windows)! In my spare time I like to play video games, go fishing, spend time with my kids, draw or make art, listen to and make music, find trails to explore and hang out with all my pets.”

Outside of work I enjoy church, photography and talking about my granddaughter, Annie. I love spending time with family, friends and our many pets.”

Bethany Charron: Veterinary Technician

“I love connecting with each of my patients and helping them feel comfortable and safe during what can be a pretty scary time. I care for every pet that comes through our doors as if they were part of my own family. I spend a lot of time outside of work going for hikes and looking for cool rocks to add to my collection. I enjoy gardening, video games, taking care of my animals (including my foster reptiles), and most of all, spending time with my kiddo! Someday, I would love to start beekeeping!”
