Dr. Crista Wallis
I graduated KSU College of Veterinary Medicine in 2000. I love the human-animal bond, solving problems and helping animals heal. I truly want to give back to my community by way of educating my clients to the best of my ability so that their pets can have a healthy life to share with them. I have three JRT's and one black cat. They all keep me on my toes!
Kayla Sandness, RVT
I have been working at MAH since 2014. I graduated from Colby Community College with an associate degree in Veterinary Nursing in September 2019! I love assisting in making the pets at MAH better. When I'm not at work, I enjoy painting and doing crafts as well as spending time with my family and my adorable Lhasapoo, Jules!
Delisa Bouchard, Groomer
I have been grooming since 2006 and been with Monticello Animal Hospital since 2008. Grooming is my passion and I love my job. Outside of work I enjoy playing board games, spending time outdoors and going to movies. I love my chaotic furry family. I have three dogs- two pugs Negan and Nova and a yorkie mix Coraline.
Trisha Wilson, Veterinary Assistant
I've loved animals my whole life and worked as a veterinary assistant in Iowa for 8 plus years before moving here and working at MAH. I am married with 2 kids, 3 dogs, and a cat. My life is always busy but I try to make time to spend outdoors, travel, watch and play sports and enjoy time with my family.
Personally, I love being able to spend quality with my family. They are always there to support me through thick and thin. Also, I enjoy being able to give back and help others. It has always been a passion of mine to help others in need. Lastly, I love being able to spend everyday with all of my furry friends! Not just my mine, but all of the amazing animals that visit MAH.
Jenny Lofvenberg, Receptionist
I have lived in Shawnee since 1986 and started working at MAH in November 2018. I have always had a deep seeded passion for all animals. I have 12 birds, a cat, 2 lizards, a mule, and one silly terrier named Newton. I feel very lucky to be part of the staff at MAH!
