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 5 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 27 years and have lived in Havre for 21 years. We have 2 adult children; Andrea-who is 23 and now getting her Master's in Math, and Christina-who is 21 and in her 3rd year of college to become a nurse. We also have a granddaughter, Lacey-who is almost 6 and tons of fun! We have a dog named "Gus" and a cat named "Hazel". They seem to have a love - hate relationship. My name is Dixie, but I am not from the south! I am actually from White Sulphur Springs.
