Julie, Practice Manager

Julie graduated from the University of Wisconsin - River Falls in 2003, with a BS in Speech Communication. She started at Carver Lake Veterinary Center in 2000 and enjoys being part of such a compassionate and professional team.

When not at the clinic Julie keeps busy playing and coaching a variety of sports, walking & biking with her family, and simply hanging out with her husband, their daughters, Danika, Kenzie, and Aubree, their dog Linc, and of course their three crazy senior kitties, Ripley, Frankie, and Lita.

Stefanie, Lead Client Care Coordinator
Stefanie joined Carver Lake in 2014 while finishing her degree in Biomedical Engineering and Chemistry. Growing up with seven dogs, she has always had a strong passion and love for animals.  Working at Carver Lake allows Stefanie to do everything she enjoys -- helping people and animals. 
When not at the clinic, Stefanie enjoys spending time her with boyfriend, Max and their silly dog, Crixus. She also enjoys hiking and camping, photography and spending time with friends and family.
Crystal, Client Care Coordinator/Veterinary Assistant

Crystal joined our team as a Client Care Coordinator and Veterinary Assistant in 2016.  Prior to joining our team, Crystal had always worked with children, while volunteering at the Humane Society in her free time.  It was this volunteer work that helped her decide to follow her love of animals and make a career change.

When she isn't working, Crystal loves spending time outdoors camping and canoeing, as well as snuggling up with her sweet cat, Chester.

Ivy, Groomer

Over the years, Ivy has met lots of wonderful pet owners and their amazing pets.Her love for animals is evident in both her meticulous work and the care she gives to pets as she grooms them. Outside of grooming, Ivy has two passions in life.  One is her own pets; Lilly the Beagle, Copper the Bloodhound, and her two cats, Pumpkin and Dahlia.  The second is Vikings Football, which is slightly surprising because she moved to Minnesota after spending the first 29 years of her life in New Orleans.
