Cassie, VTA

Cassie started working with Dodgeville Veterinary Service in July 2020. She graduated from Darlington High School in 2008 and graduated from Dental Assisting at Southwest Tech in 2009. She figured out that it wasn't the right path, as she was talking to the patients more about their pets than themselves. She has loved animals since the day she was born. Cassie grew up with so many different pets; if not her own, her grandparents, her aunts and uncles, and other random animals that she grew to love.

Cassie lives in Darlington with her boyfriend, his daughter and son, their 2 dogs and 4 cats. She says that she would love to have more pets some day. Cassie loves working here at DVS and has a great relationship with all the pets and their humans!

P.S. Rani, the clinic cat (pictured with Cassie), is her favorite co-worker of all

Groomers

Cassie

I have recently completed the Professional Dog Grooming course at Iowa Lakes Community College. Although I have been grooming my terrier mix for the last ten years, I have learned having the right tools and learning some basic techniques makes all the difference. In November, a standard poodle joined the household, so I got plenty of practice honing my grooming skills. Growing up on a farm, I was always around animals and have always had a couple of cats or a dog or two in my home.

In my spare time, I am doing some home improvement projects. I also like to do acrylic pour painting, refinishing furniture, and am an avid reader. Of course I spend a lot of time with Lincoln(poodle) and Benny(terrier) throwing the frisbee and going for walks. Also travel quite frequently to Iowa to visit family and friends.

Alex
