Receptionists

Kris

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.

Michelle

Hello, my name is Michelle, but everyone calls me MJ. I've been working at Parkdale Animal Hospital since 2007. I wear many hats here at Parkdale. I'm a Receptionist, Kennel Tech & Groomer. My husband Jim and I live on the west side and are the owners of two spoiled Shih Tzus, Bailey and Bridgett. In my spare time I love motorcycle riding with my husband and being with family and friends.

Shelly

After 24 years of dedication to Parkdale, I have finally decided to retire. It will be bittersweet. I have made so many friends while working here, and leaving them will be the hardest part. I’ll concentrate more on my jewelry making, but more importantly, I’ll be available for my grandbabies. I’ve learned that growing older makes you appreciate the smaller things in life. And being retired will allow me to do that. Don’t need to travel the world, all I need is to be able to sit in my backyard and just breath. My last day will be Thursday, March 21.

Lisa
