Lisa was born and raised in Sedan, and moved to Wichita where she attended Junior High and High school. She attended college in Colby, graduating from the Veterinary Technician Program in 1976. After marriage to her college sweetheart, Gordon, they raised two children and many cats and dogs over the next 30 some years. Lisa worked as a Vet Tech in Pawhuska, OK for several years before making her way to Independence Animal Hospital in 2005.
She enjoys fishing and quilt making, and spoiling four grandchildren when not at work caring for the many patients that come through the doors of Independence Animal Hospital!
