Our Staff:

Lisa - Technician:

Mary works at the front desk, usually with Louie curled up on one of her sweaters or scarves. At home, Mary spends a lot of time taking care of her menagerie... 2 dogs, 5 cats, 1 retired horse, 20 adult chickens, 20 new chicks and 5 ducklings. Mary travels as often as she has opportunity.

Faith works part-time at the front desk and is in charge of our Facebook page. Faith is also a student and she shares 2 dogs and 2 cats with her family.

Jessica splits her time with us between the front desk and in the back as a technician. She loves learning about caring for animals and cuddling our sweet friends that come in to see us! Jessica is a student at Loyola University Chicago and she spends her small amount of free time playing and taking naps with her two crazy dogs, Jax and Autumn!

Kaitlin - Technician:

OFFICE MANAGERS: King Louie and Queen Danica

Louie is our handsome but grumpy old man. We believe Louie is about 18 years old and he has lived at Rand Road Animal Hospital for at least a dozen years. Louie is a real cuddler, but he earned his 'grumpy old man' title by slapping people and pets that disturbed his naptime! Louie's favorite spot to hangout is at the front desk with the receptionists (and their sweaters) or napping in his bed underneath the desk.

Danica is our beautiful and regal Calico Cat. Danica arrived at Rand Road Animal Hospital as a very young kitten after being hit by a car. Dr Pete operated on her broken leg and Danica has been here ever since! Danica's favorite hangout spots are near the coffee pot, in the sink, on a chair in the lobby or in the exam room. Her favorite past time is eating.

SPECIAL GUESTS: Holly (Dr. Jen's dog) and Ozzy (Mary's dog) visit us nearly everyday.
