Certified Veterinary Technician
As a Certified Veterinary Technician who graduated from MSU, Ashley has been at Bavarian Veterinary Hospital since 2013. She feels the best part of veterinary medicine is seeing a pet’s health make progress after treatment, and even moreso, seeing clients’ reactions when their pet’s health improves after medical treatment.
When not at our hospital, Ashley enjoys spending time with her kids, gardening, baking, going up north to their cabin, helping at their family farm, and completing home projects/renovations. Allie, a cat, is their family pet.
People are drawn to veterinary medicine for many reasons, and Dominique’s is being able to review with clients plans for home care after treatment, emergencies or surgeries. She has been part of our team since 2012.
In her spare time, Dominique enjoys family time, gardening/yard work, camping, biking, kayaking, hiking, hunting, and fishing.
Her family pets include their “3rd child”, Lenny- a Soft coated Wheaten Terrier, Cotton – her daughter Jessa’s dwarf hamster, and Leon – her son Dane’s Leopard gecko.
Her Wheaten Terrier/Poodle mix, Pippa, keeps her busy going for long walks, swimming and playing fetch. Kirsten also enjoys spending time with her kids, kayaking, traveling, and taking on house renovations.
As one of the first faces you’ll see when you enter our veterinary hospital, Lou Ann’s smiling face will be ready to greet you! She loves seeing and working with all of the different animals. Lou Ann’s family shares their home with Kelly, a cat and is expecting a new Golden Retriever Pup in December 2021! She also enjoys spending time with their grandkids, going to their lake house, reading, and cross stitching.
Ashley is a graduate of Saginaw Valley State University – 2012. Since 2011, she has been here, getting to know our clients and their pets. Ashley enjoys watching them start as puppies and being with them as they grow. One of the special moments she enjoys is seeing pet owner’s excitement of a new kitten or puppy after going through the heartbreak of the loss of an older pet.
Spending time with her husband and 3 children, camping, reading, and being outdoors is where you’ll find Ashley when she’s not at the clinic. They also share their home with Mega, a Husky, Skye, an Aussie-Doodle, and Gemma, a Calico Kitty. They all enjoy sleeping and a quiet house after the kids go to bed!
