One of the things we are proudest of in our practice is the longevity and stability of our excellent staff. We think it says volumes about dedication to the work, and even bigger volumes about our practice as a good place to work. Counting up the years is a bit of a task, but here are some of the tallies in our practice. When you come in the door here, you are entering a clinic where the vets and staff are serious about their work, and serious about doing our collective best for your companion animal. Dr. Baillie: 39 years in practice, and the founder of Cedar Pet Clinic. Dr. Ulfeng: 17 years with us. Dr. Plantz: 7 years with us (started immediately after her graduation from vet school.) Both Drs. Ulfeng and Plantz started their careers as animal care workers in our practice, decided to go to vet school, and came back. Practice manager Mila: more than thirty years with Dr. Baillie. Vet tech Sue: 19 years with us. Receptionist Sue: 20 years with us. Receptionist Diane: 11 years at our front desk. Vet techs Sara, Kris, and Jayde: 13 years total. And a relative newcomer...Michelle at 3 years.
We're also proud that two of our staff have left us now to start vet school; Kirsten is finishing her first year, and Zoe started this past fall here at the University of Minnesota.
