I started at LePar January of 2007. I attended the Vet Tech Institute at Fox College and am proud to be a Certified Veterinary Technician. What I love about my job is using all the skills I learned at school on a daily basis. If you don’t see me, you can bet I will be in the dental room. I love doing dentals. The instant gratitude it brings is just the best.

When I am not here at LePar, you can find me working in the emergency department at Premier Vet in Crestwood. I just love learning new things and being able to strengthen my abilities.In my spare time, I love running races and testing my endurance.My favorite breed of dog is a Pit-bull and I did have an awesome one named Olivia. She is my guardian angel right now and just can’t seem to replace. I do get to spoil my dad’s Pit-bull Beata.


I’m Nicole, I’ve been in the veterinary field since 1998 and at LePar Animal Hospital since 2010. I have a black Lab named Murphy and a bunny named Frankfurter. I enjoy working out, participating in 5K’s and hopefully further in the future. I also enjoy traveling and experiencing all the fun life has to offer with my husband raising our 2 children. Im also lucky enough to have my cosmetology teaching license which makes me the resident hairdresser.





My name is Becky and I started working at LePar Animal Hospital as a veterinary assistant in August of 2014. I graduated from Saint Xavier University in August of 2011 with my Bachelors Degree in Biology and I have been working in the veterinary technician field for 3 years. Before I became a veterinary assistant I worked at an animal shelter as a kennel attendant for 4 years. I have always enjoyed taking care of animals, even as a kid.

I love that my job allows me to help pets in need and help keep them healthy because they are a part of our families. I have a 1.5 year old Border Collie/Dalmation/Pug Mix named Dakota and a 20 year old black Tabby cat named Spunky. My hobbies include reading books, painting, spending time with my family/friends and my pets, and going for walks with my dog. I am interested in going back to school for a Graduate Certificate in Veterinary Forensics or Zoology.

Hi! My name is Jennifer and I’ve been a technician at LePar since August 2013. My love of animals started at an early age with my German Shepherd Sandy. At the age of 12, I began volunteering at the local animal shelter and went on to work as a kennel attendant throughout high school.

After graduating college with a degree in Psychology, I decided to look for a career working with animals. I spent 5 years as a technician at an animal shelter before coming to LePar full time. I currently have 2 pups of my own, Argo and Ellie, and am a crazy cat lady with a total of 9, yes 9, cats (many of which are special needs). My true passion is helping those who can’t help themselves. =)


I’m Amy, I joined the LePar team when I was in High School as a kennel assistance. I’ve enjoyed taking care of animals all my life. After being here for over 15 years LePar is like a second home for me. When I’m not at LePar I enjoy working out, hiking, and spending time with my son.
