I graduated from Stautzenberger College with my Applied Associate in Veterinary Technology and became registered in Ohio and Michigan shortly after. My biggest interests in veterinary medicine are surgery and anesthesia. I have an adorable bulldog-pitbull mix named “Oscar.” In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and doing outdoor activities like camping, gardening, and going to festivals.”

“I have a BFA from the University of Toledo—I have always loved the medical field and have worked at RRAH since 2013. I enjoy painting, bird watching, and gardening. My favorite thing about my job is forming relationships with clients and patients. If I can get your pet to take a treat from me, I consider it a great day.”
Since June 2011
“My life has been totally about working with animals which have allowed me to have great pet industry jobs. I started training dogs at the age of 8. This helped me manage a major dog kennel that proved interest in sales of pet supplies. These jobs allowed me to travel the country. As life throws curveballs, I got married and had 2 amazing children. I have enjoyed coming off the sales road and now enjoy working at RRAH. I also returned to dog training.
Boomer is a Golden Retriever. He is trained in tricks, tracking, triball, obedience, and confirmation. He is my demo dog for training classes. He knows how to make you laugh. He also helps my mother with jobs around the house. He and I love to try new things in dog sports. We also have 3 other goldens that share the farm.”

“Hi, I’m Kelsey! I have been a veterinary assistant at RRAH since April 2022. Currently, I am studying at the University of Toledo on a pre-vet route with a BS in Biology. Many years spent in the barn with 4-H projects developed my passion for working with animals.

“I am a hard, dependable worker, and I am easygoing. I like working with others. I have been married for over nine years to the most beautiful woman in the world, Kelly. I enjoy working with wood, cutting grass, playing Wii games, and going to church in my spare time.
We have a black cat named Thor. He is a little over a year old and likes keeping us on our toes.”
In 2019, Meredith crossed the rainbow bridge. Our staff and clients deeply miss her. Princess Meredith will always hold a special place in our hearts.
“The first owner of RRAH, Dr. Tom Young, was going to give me to his niece. However, when Dr. Young brought me to the hospital, he realized I got such style and grace to the practice. I just had to stay. I can be seen grooming myself when I’m not greeting clients. My job here is to keep everyone in line and to add beauty and class to the environment. My hobbies include napping, posing, being petted, being adored, and looking at Joey with disdain. One day I hope to take over the practice.
I have several human pets that I have trained to meet my every need.”
“Dr. Roger adopted me as a kitten from a client, and I came to live at RRAH. I am a lovely and affectionate boy. I have successfully kicked the habit of peeing outside my litter box. My job is to bring joy to all my coworkers (except Meredith). I remind the humans to play, cuddle, and laugh. My hobbies include supervising dental and ultrasound procedures, stealing tape, and inventing toys from everyday objects. One day I hope to catch my tail.
I have a pet bird that chirps when I play with him. Meredith says he’s not a real bird, but I don’t believe her.”
In Loving Memory
Our RRAH family has torn apart with bad news in early 2017. We lost one of our valued employees, Kellie.
Everyone knew Kellie with a massive smile on her face and a big hug waiting for whoever needed it. She cared for patients as if they were her own and genuinely held our work family together. We are all deeply heartbroken and will cherish her forever.
