Bev has been a receptionist at LePar Animal Hospital for the past 38 years. No . . . . that is not a misprint! What started out as the perfect “part time” job to help supplement the costs of prom dresses class rings, etc. for two teenage daughters turned into a career.
She has enjoyed the friendships, formed working with so many great co-workers along the way, as well as so many wonderful clients. Add all of the furry friends and it has been a true labor of love. Bev’s husband, Ray, is retired now so she has cut back on hours giving her more time for some of their favorite things. . . eating out, trips to the St. Charles/ Geneva area, Michigan, and Wisconsin , and spending time with her daughters, and their families. Bev does not currently have any pets, but the picture posted is of a client’s new puppy, who happens to share the name Beverly!
I started working at LePar in 1997. I have always enjoyed being around animals both domestic and wild. Going to the woods and seeing the animals in their natural setting, deer and such, always makes me smile.
I have had many pets and have always enjoyed sharing my life with them. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, baking, working out, reading, going for walks, and spending time with my husband, family and friends.
I have been working at LePar for a number of years. One of the things I like most are the conversations with our clients. Outside of work, I enjoy taking care of my stray cat, Baby Boy, shopping and going to Art Fests.
Ashley joined the LePar Team in 2012. You can find her behind the front desk answering phones, making appointments, and assisting clients and her coworkers any way she can. Outside of LePar Ashley enjoys cooking, practicing yoga, or playing with her three-year-old Chihuahua, Yoda.
Hi, I’m Peggy and I am new to the LePar family. I enjoy seeing all the different animals that come through the door everyday. I’m married with two boys ages 11 and 12 and have a 5 year old boxer mix at home. My husband and I also run a HVAC company which keeps me busy on my off days. My family enjoys camping, hiking and tubing, even our dog goes tubing!

I began at LePar this summer and love playing with all the fur babies that come in. I have always had a soft spot for animals and began rescuing cats of the street near my grandmother’s house when I was young. I currently own one chatty cat, Nala, but I love big fluffy dogs the best.
My dream is to either open a small rescue and/or become an exotic cat veterinarian, tending tigers, cheetahs, and wolves. In my spare time I like to read fantasy books and write short stories. I also enjoy Japanese culture and speak a little Japanese.
Hi, I’m Dawn and I started working at LePar in the summer of 2016. Originally from the UK, I moved to Illinois at the start of 2015 to be with my husband and our two cats, Alfie and Vader. I currently work here part-time as I’m in college full-time pursuing my degree in biology with the hopes of going on to veterinary school. In my spare time I love listening to music, playing video games and spending time with friends and my new American family.
