Staff_Rachel_lowresRachel, Certified Veterinary Technician

Hello! My name is Rachel and I have worked at Chaska Valley Vet Clinic since the summer of 2011. My co-workers and our clients have been so welcoming. I have previously worked at vet clinics in the south Minneapolis area, but feel lucky to have found Chaska Valley after moving to Watertown. Since moving from the city to the country, I have taken in an elderly cat and a young dog. My dog, Gracie Lou, adds a lot more exercise to my cat, Chris’s, life. More than he really cares for! I have been a Certified Veterinary Technician since 2008 and I love the work I do.

Staff_Abby_lowresAbby, Certified Veterinary Technician

Hi my name is Abby, I’ve worked at Chaska Valley Veterinary Clinic since April 2014. Ever since I was little I knew I wanted to work with humans or animals. I found being a Vet Tech, I could do both.

I grew up in Lakeville but spent most of my summers at my cabin on Big Watab Lake; swimming, jet skiing and catching turtles. I also love going to my grandpa’s farm where I like to ride on my four wheeler, tend to his huge garden and find monarch caterpillars to raise them into butterflies.

I have 2 amazing sisters. A wonderful significant other, Evan, who I adore and our lovable gray tabby named Smaug (named after the big dragon in The Hobbit).

I graduated from Minnesota School of Business with Associates in Veterinary Technology in December 2014. At the clinic you will find me checking in patients, filling medications, assisting a veterinarian in the exam room, monitoring your pet during surgery, cleaning your pets teeth during dentals, taking X-rays and much more. I look forward to seeing you the next time you and your pet come into CVVC!

I recently moved to Jordan, MN with my boyfriend Larry and our three cats Logan, Doobie and Loki. I enjoy horse back riding, camping, boating and spending time with my family.
