Hi! My name is Rhonda and I am a Certified Veterinary Technician with almost 27 years of experience, most of those years were spent in Emergency Medicine. I did not plan on becoming a Vet Tech though, I have a degree in Music Education and Performance! I decided to become a technician when I realized taking care of pets and their owners was my true calling.
I have 3 daughters, 18, 14 and 12 and a soon to be step son (15) and step daughter (11). My fiancé (also a Vet Tech) and I have 7 dogs, 1 cat, a fish and we just added a baby Guinea Pig!
In my spare time (what is that????) I enjoy spending time with our children. I like to visit family in SW Wisconsin and go up north to our property. I also enjoy motorcycles, still play clarinet, and reading is a “go to” whenever I feel the need for some peace and quiet!
I have always said my work is my vacation! I still believe that to be true, I love what I do and nothing makes me happier than helping your furry children, and sometimes you as the owner, feel better!
I look forward to meeting you and your furry children and having the chance to get to know you all better.
Thanks for entrusting me with your children, it means a lot.
I’ve loved animals as long as I can remember. I grew up riding horses and walking neighborhood dogs. I went through the veterinary technician program at MATC in Madison. I worked in emergency medicine for ten years (MECA & WVRC) before transitioning to day practice. My pet daughter has four snakes, two toads and an axolatyl. I also have a corgi named Ooka. In my free time I enjoy playing guitar and reading books about guitar. I am proud to be a part of the Downtown family and I look forward to meeting you and your pets.
My name is Jordan! I’m a Milwaukee native and lifelong animal lover. I live with my boyfriend and our cat, Ralph, in Bay View. Outside of work, I’m a huge geek- I love to play D&D with my friends, read books (mostly fantasy/sci-fi), play video games, and have board game nights with family and friends! I also enjoy cooking and baking, and try new recipes all the time.
Before coming to Downtown Vet, I worked for 3 years at a 24-hour emergency animal hospital. I can’t wait to take care of you and your pets!
Emily, Veterinary Assistant
My name is Emily and I am a recent addition to the Downtown team. I just moved back to Wisconsin after 5 years in Seattle with my fiance Aaron and cozy cat Hygge. Although I’ve always loved animals, I stumbled into veterinary medicine as a career by chance after responding to an ad for a part time receptionist in Seattle. Within a few weeks, it became my full time job, and within 6 months I was being trained as an assistant. Currently I am working on my certification to become a Licenced Technician and look forward to caring for your cuddly critters. When I am not working, I enjoy reading, baking, kayaking, hiking and knitting.
