Emily started here as a child. She would play with the animals while her dad, Dr. Butler, saw patients. As time went on she progressed to working at the front desk and then management. When “Doc” passed away, Emily stayed on as Office Manager for Doctors Frank and Meg. With her two daughters grown, she dotes on her Frenchie, Bruno, instead.

Karen is our lead surgical technician. Having worked at the clinic for 29 years, she has experience under the Davis’s and Dr. Butler.
