Surgical Technician

Joan has been an animal lover since she was young. In her youth, she did very well breeding and showing rabbits. As an adult, she became interested in showing bullmastiffs and bred one litter. She started work in the veterinary field in 1987, where she was a Receptionist / Technician and later became the Manager. After a short break to start a family and have her daughter, Joan joined the staff and began her adventure with Bethel Village Square Animal Hospital in 1992 as an office call technician and quickly advanced to become Lead Technician / Lead Surgical Technician.



Sarah took her first steps into the veterinary field in 1991 at 16 years of age as kennel help. In 1999, she joined the family at Bethel Village Square as a technician. Through her 25 years here, Sarah has not only immensely enjoyed her profession and coworkers but also has grown very fond of the patients she has helped care for and their family members as well. In her private time Sarah has had a secondary career as a pet sitter for clients and friends of the practice. Her home has always been open to a menagerie of four-legged friends, through mostly rescue situations, ranging from Bullmastiffs to Yorkies, as well as many cats and smaller pets. Currently, she shares her home with two cats, Bean and Gimpy, and her rescued pittie Nya, and her newest obsession is her littlest love, our hospital pet Gregory.



Lindsey is a certified veterinary technician who has been in the field since 2017. She started as a large animal technician, moved to small animal medicine in 2019, and has been with us since. She is very passionate and devoted to her job, helping animals and their owners in any way possible. In her free time, Lindsey enjoys taking her dog Lexi for hikes, being outside, and going to the horse barn to ride and teach lessons.



Donna's connection with animals was predestined. Born into a family of animal lovers, she was constantly surrounded by cats, dogs, rabbits, and hamsters, as well as the amphibians and reptiles she would bring home from family trips up north. Always curious and fascinated by animals, she would spend a lot of time outdoors observing the local wildlife and often brought injured animals to her parents to try to help them. Her journey into the veterinary field began many years ago in a small office in Brookfield. Over the years, she has worked with domestic animals as well as exotics and has always enjoyed behavioral components, the opportunity to work with a variety of species, and providing client education. Presently, she lives with her feline companion, Momma, who is nothing short of a blessing and is grateful every day to be able to make a difference in the world.

Cathy Jones

Hospital Manager

Cathy has had a lifelong love of animals. As a child, she would go to work with her dad, who was a dog groomer, sweeping up fur and nails, manning the cash register, and organizing the inventory. It was no surprise that she embarked on a career in the animal world. In 1993, her first job was cleaning cages and giving baths as a kennel girl, moving on to become Kennel Manager, Receptionist, and finally Office Manager. Cathy started as a Receptionist/Bookkeeper at Bethel Village Square Animal Hospital in May of 2000, becoming Office Manager in 2003.



Vic has been an animal lover since early childhood, rescuing & collecting cats, dogs, and horses. Her love of animals led her to start a pet-sitting business, which she did for several years before transitioning to work in the veterinary field in 2004. She has worked at Bethel Village Square Animal Hospital since 2008.
