Voted Best Vet Clinic of Monona, Best of Madison, and Star of Madison!
Hi! My name is Hannah, and I am a vet assistant here at Four Lakes.
I returned to Wisconsin after studying in the Environmental Humanities Program at the University of Utah, and soon after, I found my passion working with shelter animals. While working as a kennel assistant at Iowa County Humane Society, I fostered 18 dogs over the course of three years. From fearful dogs to high energy dogs, I enjoyed giving them a temporary home away from the shelter with plenty of enrichment and training to prepare them for adoption. In 2017, I accepted a full-time Animal Caretaker position at Dane County Humane Society where I had the opportunity to work with a wider variety of species and learn more from DCHS’s Canine Behavior Team. After three years at DCHS, I decided I wanted to learn more about veterinary medicine.
I joined the amazing Four Lakes Team in 2021, and I am so excited to work at a Fear Free Certified Practice that seeks to make visits to the veterinarian less stressful. I believe that both physical and emotional health are key to good animal welfare. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking on the Ice Age Trail, painting/sculpting, and bonding with my dogs through agility, scent work, and outdoor adventures.
