I started out as a part time receptionist back in 1995, then moved to being an assistant part time which of course led to full time!!! I was an assistant for many years and then had the opportunity to become certified as a Veterinary Technician. I really enjoyed the technical work that was involved in the clinic. To this day, I greatly enjoy this aspect of the clinic. About 8 years ago a new opportunity came my way; that was to become the Office Manager. This has been a challenging position, but enjoyable. Having the opportunity to work in all areas of the clinic prior to this has allowed me to have a very good understanding of what successes, challenges, and rewards come with each area. Working here is very stimulating, as each new day brings a new case - there is never a dull moment. My husband Doug and I have been married for 31 years and have lived in Havre for 25 years. We have 2 adult children; Andrea-who is 27 and is a statistician in Idaho Falls, ID. Christina-who is 25 and is a nurse in Helena. We also have a granddaughter, Lacey-who is 9 and tons of fun! We have a dog named "Gus". My name is Dixie, but I am not from the south! I am actually from White Sulphur Springs.
