Originally from the Nebraska Panhandle, Christian is one of our talented vet assistants. She may be a familiar face in the clinic, as she has been with our team for 3 and ½ years and has made this clinic her “home away from home.” Christian’s love for animals is evident in her calm, patient nature with even the most fearful and grumpy patients: she has earned her title of our “animal whisperer.” Christian has always been an advocate for animals, choosing to spend her spare time helping with local rescues via fostering and advice. When she isn’t spending time with patients in the clinic, she is home snuggling her two dogs, Cooper and Ollie, and her five cats: Murray, Monkey, Calvin, Hobbes and Walter.
