I have been working as a Veterinarian for over 30 years and for past 20years I have been living and working in Michigan. I enjoy internal medicine and soft tissue surgeries. I have been married to Neomi for 35 years. I understand and strongly believe that pets are valued family members and provide us with unconditional love and joy. I take pride in providing quality and compassionate veterinary care to all my patients and honor the bond we create with our furry friends. Me and my staff look forward to serve you and your furry companion. Beside veterinary medicine I enjoy Hiking, Mountain biking, Skydiving & Snow boarding.

I have been a part of the Great Lakes Animal Hospital team since it first opened. I studied my undergraduate at Wayne State University and completed my doctor of veterinary medicine degree at University of Minnesota. My professional interest include internal medicine, abdominal ultrasonography and preventative medicine. But what I love the most is witnessing and being a part of the amazing human animal bond that my patients share with their owners. In my spare time I enjoy yoga, outdoor adventures and spending time with my family.

Heather, LVT

Hi, I’m Heather and I am a licensed veterinary technician here at Great Lakes. Working here for three years now, the people and pets around me feel like a furry extended family. Which is great, since I have two pets of my own! Both rescues, Maz is an affectionate kitty and Falla is a playful Siberian Husky. When I’m not here taking care of pets, I enjoy camping, biking, boat rides and spending time with family. I am also an avid reader. I can’t wait to see you next time!

Christina, Technician

Hi all! My name is Christina, and I have been working as a Veterinary Technician at Great Lakes Animal Hospital since 2016. I currently have a dog named Coco who is seven-year- old Maltese Mix. I have
always had a passion for animals so I knew at a young age that I wanted to work in the Veterinary Field. My favorite part of working in this field is the rewarding feeling of helping an animal in need. I look forward to seeing all your furry friends!

Dani, Receptionist

One of the best feelings in the world is to be greeted by a smiling dog with her tail wagging so hard her whole bottom wiggles, or a happy cat purring and curling his toes.

I love learning about the quirks of animal physiology and I am fortunate in that I work with a fantastic staff and two doctors that are willing to answer my endless questions.  Outside of work I am an eccentric cat owner, a Macomb college student, and a voracious reader of novels.  I live with my boyfriend and our two cats: a fluffy lady lap cat and a cranky Maine Coon.  I enjoy working as an animal attendant, and it is my driving desire to help animals--and their people!--to heal and live happy healthy lives.

Angela, Receptionist

When I was two years old my father gave me a beagle puppy. From that point on, I was hooked. I love animals and helping others care for their four legged friends. My husband and I have two little girls and two furry kids. Zappa is a 14 year old lab mix and Rabbit is our sweet 12 year old kitty. They keep life interesting. I look forward to meeting you and your furry family members!

Jennifer, receptionist

Hi, my name is Jennifer and I love working at GLAH. I have always had furry babies since I was little and I just love meeting new furry babies everyday! My husband Steven and I have a beautiful little girl Amelia who is 4 and our sweet fur babies a boxer, Ava who is 9 and our kitty Abigail who is 8 months. While I'm not working I enjoy spending time with my family, we enjoy going to the zoo, park, beach and spendig time at our cabin up north! I look forward to meeting you and your sweet fur babies!

   

Carter, veterinary assitant

I am currently a student attending Macomb Community College, and work at GLAH part time. I’ve had animals my whole life, anything ranging from dogs and cats, to rabbits and cows. I became a Certified Veterinary Assistant during my senior year of high school, through a program that allowed me to use part of my school day to learn about animal healthcare. I love my job here at the clinic, and can’t imagine myself in any other field of study.

Cleo, Clinic Cat

My name is Cleo and I reign supreme over my human servants. My Favorite foods are bananas, string cheese, and lunch meat (which I share with my people at lunchtime). I live here at the clinic and I have it all to myself over the weekend. I like to watch the birds and blowing leaves at the front doors, and sometimes I keep watch at reception when my staff is busy. I like to meet new dogs from safe distance, but I don't usually like to see other cats in my home, unless I get to tease them. 

I am shy about unfamiliar people in my back lair and I have difficulty recognizing even people I know when they are not in their scrubs. 

I am proud to say that I am a holy terror when it comes to my vaccines and blood draws, but I am an endless source of entertainment and even the occasional snuggle
