East Towne Veterinary Clinic's Dedicated Team
Our dedicated team of veterinary and support professionals is devoted to our clients and the health and wellbeing of their beloved pets.
Julie – Hospital Manager
Julie started with us in December of 1993. She left for a little while in 2008 because she returned to school to become a Certified Medical Assistant. Although she is a CMA, she continues to call East Towne Veterinary Clinic her home. In January 2017, she took on a new role as Hospital Manager.
Julie is a huge advocate for pet insurance. It breaks her heart to hear someone say they cannot afford to pursue a treatment for the pet they love due to finances, and knows that it breaks their hearts, too. In many cases, pet insurance can take the financial aspect out of the decision-making process when determining what course of action to take with a sick or injured pet.
Julie has been married to her husband Mike since 1990, and they have two incredible children – Emma (19) and Adam (16). They also have a "spirited" yellow Lab named Sport who is 11 but seems to think that he is two!
Tracy – Client Care Specialist
Tracy has been at East Towne Veterinary Clinic since 2000. Her favorite part of working here is getting to play with the variety of animals that visit us each day. Tracy has a Siberian husky named Bandit and five cats – Brantlie, Gracie, Leo, Marlee and Twix. In her free time, she enjoys camping.
Tracy's message to pet parents is, "If you notice your pet is not feeling well or is acting different, please do not wait – make an appointment right away. Love your animals unconditionally as they are only with us for a short period of time and add so much happiness to our lives."
Aspin – Veterinary Technician
Aspin is a Certified Veterinary Technician and has been working at East Towne Veterinary Clinic since 2013. Prior to joining our team, she worked at the Wisconsin Equine Clinic and Hospital.
She has a horse named Finn and enjoys taking him to horse shows and teaching riding lessons. Her favorite part of her job is caring for a sick or injured pets, and sending both the pet and the owner home feeling better.
Claudia – Veterinary Technician
Claudia has been working at East Towne Veterinary Clinic since 1994. She started as a Client Care Specialists and is now a very skilled and knowledgeable member of our Technician Team. She laughs because some people call her a little obsessive compulsive, but to her it’s more about finding an area for improvement and working hard to achieve her goals.
Claudia loves to be outdoors and enjoys running and watching Carpool Karaoke with James Corden. Her message to pet parents is, “Aging isn’t a disease. There are many things that can be done to help your pet age comfortably. Appreciate your pet’s unconditional love!”
Somer – Technician Assistant & Client Care Specialist
Somer started with us as a Pet Care Attendant in July 2010. She has a cat named Tate who currently lives at the clinic until she gets a cat-friendly place of her own. She loves her two family dogs Leo and Livy. Somer will never own a bird as they scare her - but she would have a tiger because they are majestic and strong!
Somer finds her work at East Towne Veterinary Clinic rewarding because she loves helping animals in need, and feels that regular wellness visits are important to detecting any sicknesses or diseases before it's too late. She always cares about what's best for our fur babies!
