Receptionists

Hi! My name is Kris and I am the Lead Receptionist here at Parkdale. I have been a part of the Parkdale family for over 20 years. Wow, how the time can fly when you are doing what you love and get to work with a great group of people! I most enjoy the time I get to spend with all of our clients and pets. I have been blessed to have the priviledge of making some very wonderful friendships with our clients and lovin' on everyone's four-legged kids.

 

My two dogs, Nestle (an 11-year-old chocolate lab) and Tommy (our 3-year-old Bichon) make our family complete with Randy (my husband of 16 years), our son Noah and our daughter Rylee. I am also an active member of Crossroads Christian Church, so I may be seen during various activities there as well.

 

In my spare time, I enjoy being with family, friends, watching my kid's activities, pet-sitting, working in my yard and being outside.

Technicians

Holly

Hello, my name is Holly and I have been a part of the Parkdale team as a technician since 2007. Parkdale is an excellent place to work and is really like a family. I have been a technician for 9 years and am close to completing an Associates degree from Purdue University to become a Registered Veterinary Technician.

 

I am a native of Kankakee, IL but now reside in Evansville, IN. I have a very rambunctious Beagle/Jack Russell mix named Scooter, a sweet Coonhound mix named Chloe and a sweet little kitty named Blossom.  In my spare time I enjoy music, cooking, gardening, exercising, watching movies and spending time with my husband, furry kiddos, friends and family.

 

I feel like I am able to make a small difference in the world by caring for our furry friends that bring so much into our lives.

Alex

Hi! My name is Alex but everyone calls me "Poody". I have been a part of the Parkdale team as a technician since 2009.

 

Starting at a very young age I have always had a big heart for God's furry gifts. My career in animal health started as an animal control officer, which I pursued for three years. This is where I adopted two homeless pups (or they adopted me!). I then moved on to the All Pet Emergency Clinic for two years where I was taught most of my techinical skills. In 2009 I was able to join the Parkdale family and here is where I hope to stay.

 

My two adopted pups are Izzy and LuLu. Izzy is now a 10-year-old Border Collie and LuLu is a 7-year-old Jack Russell. I have also taken in a stray kitty that showed up at my house. Kitty Baby is a beautiful 5-year-old domestic short hair. Outside of work I love pretty much anything that involves exercise and sports. In my free time, I also enjoy crafts and gardening.

Donna

Hi, name is Donna. I joined the Parkdale team as a technician in 2011. My husband Matt, my 10-year-old son Ashton and I have three dogs named Kase, Maggie and Yukon. I enjoy working alongside my co-workers and doctors seeing all the different cases that are presented. In 2011, I joined a community orchestra where I play the cello. I am totally dedicated to my job to ensure that the pets that visit us leave happy and healthy!

Samantha

Hi, my name is Samantha and I joined the Parkdale team as a technician in 2013. I have always shared a love for animals from a very young age and began to pursue a career in animal health in 2006. My favorite part of being a technician is animal care education and having the opportunity to help provide pets with a longer, healthier life with their loved ones.

 

I am from Kentucky but after attending USI, I have settled in Newburgh along with my family. We have 2 dogs, a dalmatian named Bauer and toy Yorkshire Terrier named Chloe. Outside of work I spend all of my time with my 2 kids. I enjoy playing golf, working out & playing sports, spending time outside and being with our family and friends.
