Meet our Management Team!
Audrey was adopted by the clinic in the fall of 2018. She quickly took her place at the top of the management tree and is the true boss of the clinic. During the day you can find Audrey leisurely napping in the management office. Her favorite hobbies include jamming up the printer, chasing the mouse on the computer screen, and knocking papers off the desk. Audrey is very good at her job – she always seems to know when someone is having a rough day and makes sure to give them extra love. We are very happy to have Audrey as our “Boss Lady”.
