Hospital ManagerJulie Berry
I have been working at VCA Cherry Bend Animal Hospital since July 2004 as a receptionist. In June of 2013 I became the hospital manager. I am originally from Cheboygan until moving to Traverse City in 1999 when my husband and I opened a successful paintball business. My pets include 2 awesome Labrador Retrievers. Gryphon is a 9 yr old chocolate, and Gary is a 7 yr old black lab. They are our children and we would not have it any other way. Working at Cherry Bend has been a great experience and every day is filled with new challenges. I am proud to have such an excellent team to lead every day.
Business Manager, Boarding and DaycareHeather Johnson
I began working at VCA Cherry Bend Animal Hospital in November of 2012 as a weekend Kennel Technician. A year and a half later the Doggy Daycare Manager position opened up and I jumped at the opportunity. I have grown up with dogs since the day I was born. I have loved each and everyone that have been in my life. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to be slobbered on daily! I currently have four dogs that are lab mixes and rescues: Bogey, Miley Rae, Ruba Jean, and most recently, a blind puppy named Finn. Finn is thriving and is able to attend Doggy Daycare with me everyday to play with his best buddies!
I am a Traverse City native and live with my husband Mark and my two teenagers, Mary and Jacob. In addition we have a blended family with my husbands three grown children that live downstate and a three year old granddaughter.
