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 and participating in 5K’s, hopefully running further in the future. I also enjoy traveling and experiencing all the fun life has to offer with my husband raising our 2 children. I’m 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.
Rudy has been working at LePar Animal Hospital for 8 years now. When he’s not busy working here, he is at home with his 11 year old golden retriever named Buddy. He also enjoys running in his spare time.
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.
Hello everyone, my name is Frank. This coming January of 2017, I will have been a veterinary assistant at LePar Animal Hospital for 10 years. In May of 2011, I graduated from Saint Xavier University with my Bachelors in Science.
I now work at LePar seasonally during the summers and winter breaks because I am studying at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana to earn my degree as a doctor of veterinary medicine in May of 2018. I love taking care of animals and helping pet owners to provide the best care and the best quality of life for their pets.

Hi everyone! My name is Megan. I graduated from the Vet Tech Institute at Fox College in 2013. After graduating, I worked at Evergreen Park Animal Hospital until its closure in June of 2017. I am very happy to have been able to join the team at LePar since then. I love helping people keep their pets happy and healthy! When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my own animals. I currently have 2 yorkies named Lola and Chloe, a pit/lab mix named Arya, and a lovebird named Makai. Thanks for taking the time to learn a little bit about me. I look forward to seeing you and your pets!
Hi! My name is Maria. I graduated from Fox College in 2015 and passed Veterinary Technician National Exam soon after. I have 5 pets, a Pitbull-Boxer mix, a Beagle, a Boston and two tuxedo cats.
Hi! My name is Tom and I am happy to have joined the LePar Family in September of 2017, My background is in Call center management but I left my career in 2015 to purse my passion for animal medicine and care in 2015. I have a background in Biology, Emergency Veterinary Medicine as well as large animal husbandry, exotics, and Marine Mammal Husbandry. When I’m not caring for your Furry Friends, you can find me in my lab researching in Parasitology and Entomology or volunteering as a Technician in Shelter Medicine and Low Income Spay and Neuter Clinics. When I’m not taking care of animals then you can find me curled up with my wonderful Beagle watching the cheesy scary movies on the SYFY Channel.
Hi, my name is Selene and I have a long work history with animals of all kinds. I went to a high school with a working farm so I have a background in barn animals as well as companion animals. I’ve worked with horses, cows, pigs, chickens and even ferrets. I have a 10 year old poodle mix named Skittles, so I have a sweet spot for senior dogs. I’ve been at Lepar for over a year and I am dedicated to make sure you and your fur babies are happy and healthy!
I am a veterinary assistant at LePar and I just started here this January, 2018. I finished my bachelors degree in Chemistry-Biology at Ripon College in December of 2017. I am an aspiring veterinarian hoping to start veterinary school this coming fall. My dream is to one day become a veterinarian at a zoo. In my free time I usually read, swim, binge watch Netflix shows, or take my golden retriever Luke for long walks.
