Rebecca: Office Manager

Rebecca helped open Southtown Vet with her husband Dr. Bob and is so very proud of its growth.  While she spends much of her time taking care of things behind the scenes, you may see her in rooms as your pet's technician or at the front desk performing receptionist duties. No matter where she is, her trusted lab mix Maggie is sure to be right by her side.

Moving to Montrose in 2006, she was immediately touched by the warmth of the community and felt this was her home.  Her greatest joy is her family, including her two beautiful children, Alannah, and Lee John.   

When not at work she volunteers much of her time helping with her children's activities. She loves to plant flowers and is looking forward to landscaping the grounds of the new facility.  Other hobbies include cooking, baking, and her guilty pleasure...reality TV. 

When asked what is her favorite thing at Southtown Vet, Rebecca says, "Our team; I am so grateful for all the amazing people that work here.  We are a family."
