I became co-owner in 1980, and full owner in 1985. I began practicing at Care More in Feb 1998. My main interests are in small animal medicine and surgery. However orthopedics, dentistry, and exotics are my favorite interests. My family includes wife (Karen), two children (Stephanie and Robby), and my two wonderful Grandchildren Lilah and Wyatt (Stephanie's) . At this present time, I have 2 Jack Russell Mixes, a Labrador Retriever Mix, 2 Hound Mixes, and a Golden Retriever. I also have several horses, goats, and a miniature donkey as well.

    Crystal Lesley

    I started working in the veterinary industry in 1999. I used to think that made me experienced, but after seeing all of these new adorable young kids coming through, I realize I’m just old. However, I truly can’t imagine doing anything else with my life. Veterinary Medicine is in my blood and it is not only what I do, but who I am. I love my job!! I am the mother of two amazing sons whom I love with all my heart. I have four dogs and 1 cat at home. The dogs are a black Labrador Retriever named Duke, a Pitbull mix named Howie (after Howard's Rock), a bulldog named Ledger, and a 9-year-old Shiba Inu named Taka. Taka is a dog I recently rescued after being burned in a house fire.

    Go Tigers!!
