Voted Best of Monona, Best of Madison, and Star of Madison!

Ashlynn Snippen-Radonski



Hi!  I'm Ashlynn, one of the assistants at Four Lakes.  I am originally from Beloit, WI, where I grew up with my older sister and many, many dogs and cats.  I graduated from Turner High School in 2013 and went straight to college at UW-Madison.  I decided in my first year that I wanted to major in zoology and apply to veterinary school.  I graduated with my BS in zoology in May, 2017.  

I started working at Four Lakes in October of 2017, after working in a different small animal clinic for about two years.  I absolutely love working at Four Lakes.  I couldn't imagine a better group of people to work with, and I love getting to know our wonderful patients and their people!

While working as an assistant, I have realized two important things.  1.  I do not want to go to vet school.  I much prefer the technical side of things over the more big picture things and decision making that veterinarians deal with on a daily basis.  2.  I have a very strong interest in sonography.  I have helped out with many ultrasounds while working at the clinic and I could see myself doing ultrasounds as a career.  Unfortunately, to be a sonographer for pets you have to be a veterinarian first, so I have made the difficult decision to switch to human medicine.  I'm attending Blackhawk Technical College in Janesville and plan to graduate with my associate's degree in a couple of years.  Sadly, this means I will be leaving Four Lakes, but I intend to continue working at the clinic until I get my degree.

I currently live in Evansville with my husband, Jesse.  We have two goofy dogs: Mara, a pittie mix, and Roo, a hound mix.  When I manage to find some free time, I spend it reading, cuddling wtih my pups, spending time with my family, or watching shows I have already seen a million times on Netflix.
