Meet the Staff

 

Nichole Ostermann, Certified Veterinary Technician

Hi. My name is Nichole and I am a Certified Veterinary Technician here at Pequot Lakes Animal Hospital. I graduated from Argosy University in 2011 and received certification not long afterwards. I have lived most of my life in the Cities, but I am greatly enjoying it up north in the Great Lakes area.

I have been an animal lover since a very young age. My parents always said I would rather play with my stuffed animals than any doll. I enjoyed growing up with three dogs in my family and spending my summers around my Uncle's goats and helping out a family friend with her horses.

I greatly appreciate working with Dr. Deb and all the other wonderful, caring people here at Pequot Lakes Animal Hospital.


Kalli Randall, Veterinary Technician

My name is Kalli Randall and I graduated from Ridgewater College in May of 2014 from the Veterinary Technician Program. I have always had a love for animals for as long as I can remember and knew that going to school to work with animals was something I needed to do. I started working With Dr. Brown and the wonderful staff here at Pequot Animal Hospital in January of 2015. My fur babies consist of my two crazy cats Maiz and Boomer. I love spending time with my family and friends.

I am glad to say that I am part of this team and that I love my job and helping all the furry friends.


Kas Orr, Veterinary Technician

Hi, my name is Kas, and I am a Veterinary Assistant at Pequot Lakes Animal Hospital. I grew up in Minnesota with our family pets, including dogs and horses. I always enjoyed being around them, and knew I wanted to be in the veterinary field when I grew up.

As an adult, I joined the Air Force and moved to Arizona. I was able to continue my education through Carrington College, and received my certification in Veterinary Assisting in 2013. I am happy to be back in Minnesota, spending time with my dogs Gypsy and Cara, and family and friends.

Working with the staff here has been wonderful, and a great experience.


Stacy, Client Coordinator

Hi, my name is Stacy. I grew up in the Brainerd lakes area. I have a degree in nursing, and other medical related fields. I have always had a love for animals and an interest in the medical field. I have 3 amazing children, Jordan, Wyatt and Aubree.

My Fur babies are Chief, my German Sheppard that loves to play ball, hid and seek with the kids, he also loves the water and cuddling. The boss of the house Stell-Bella the mighty 3 pound Chihuahua, her favorite thing to do is cuddle, lay in the sun and supervise Chief while he is playing, and of course she loves to be held. We also have a Persian cat named Nermal who tries to hide from the dogs most of her day.

I have enjoyed learning and seeing the differences between the human and animal medical field, and surprisingly the many similarities. I feel very lucky to be a part of this amazing team who has become my second family, I truly enjoy my job, patients and our wonderful clients.


Brianna, Veterinary Assistant

Hello, my name is Brianna and I’m a veterinary assistant here at Pequot Lakes Animal Hospital. I grew up in the Lakes area and have always had a love for animals.

Growing up I always had dogs in my life and would try to adopt various other animals ranging from rabbits, turtles, and kittens. (I would’ve had a zoo if my parents had let me!)

I currently have a very handsome and feisty cat named Thor and I spend a lot of my time with our family’s springer spaniel Sophie who loves a lot of attention and treats! I’m very excited to be working for Dr. Brown and her amazing team and am happy to be helping animals live a happy healthy life!


Emily, Client Coordinator

Hi! My name is Emily and I attended Minnesota School of Business to study Veterinary Technology. I grew up south of the cities in New Prague, Minnesota. I moved to the lakes area in 2010 for the peacefulness and scenery! I grew up helping my uncle on his sheep ranch every year in central Montana, and found my love for all sorts of animals.

I started working with Dr. Deb and staff in July of 2017, and have enjoyed every minute of it. I am constantly learning new tips and tricks to keep my pets and our clients pets healthy, and it is truly rewarding. My first love is a German Shepherd Mix that I adopted from Hart in 2011. Her name is Roxanne and she is a bundle of energy and sass. My second princess is a husky mix that I adopted from Hart in 2015. Her name is Nala and she is very talkative and loves belly rubs. She loves anything, as long as it includes your attention! My third little devil is a wolf hybrid named Athena. She is full of spunk and will have an entire conversation with you!

I love working here with Dr. Deb and staff. I have not only gained work relationships, but true friendships. I love being here to help all of our furry patients.


Bud, Human Resources

Bud

My name is Bud and I live with Dr. Deb. I am an important part of the staff at Pequot Lakes Animal Hospital as it is my job to greet the dogs as they enter through the treatment area of the hospital. Other times you can find me sleeping under Dr. Deb's desk in the office. I love long walks, a good bone to chew, and any soft toy with a squeaker inside. Ask to stop in and say hi!
