  • Technician Supervisor

    Laura Pethke, CVT

    I started working at VCA Pahle Animal Hospital in September of 2007.  About a year ago, I was promoted to Technician Supervisor.  I enjoy the daily challenges and also the interaction with the patients, clients and staff.

    I was born in Milwaukee, WI and graduated from Martin Luther High School.  Science was always my favorite subject.  I passed the VTNE exam to become a Certified Veterinary Technician after working at different hospitals to gain the experience without having to move to Madison for school.

    My time away from the hospital is spent breeding and showing Miniature Bull Terriers.  I travel to several dog shows every year.  Any time that is left over is spent doing any sort of outdoor activities with my family.  My greatest accomplishment was having two wonderful kids, Cameron and Kendra and being married to my high school sweetheart for over 13 years.

    My favorite pet was my special needs Miniature Bull Terrier, Apple.  She was very dear to me.

    If I could meet anyone living or dead, I would definitely pick Kenny Chesney, because I love him!!!

    Christmas is my favorite time of year because it's the one time of year my entire family is together!
