Meet Our Team

  • Dr.
    Kevin J. Stachowiak

    I dreamed about being a veterinarian since I was 7 or 8 years old.  When I graduated from MSU in 2000, it was a dream come true.  In 2002, I moved to Caseville and developed my laser surgery skills, which has been a passion of mine ever since.  I love keeping puppies and kittens happy and healthy with the help of technology like surgery laser and videoscopes.

    Working in a tourist town, I have been able to work with many veterinarians throughout the state.  This cooperative effect led me to become President of the Michigan Veterinary Medical Association in 2016, which is a great honor.

    When I'm not at work helping pets in need, you can find me at home with my wife Lindsay, daughters Ava and Julia, dog Macy, and cat Sully.

    I absolutely love the people and pets I have met in Caseville as I look forward to coming to work everyday with a smile.  I hope to see you soon.

    Carrie A. Hooper
    Associate Veterinarian

    I have enjoyed being a small animal veterinarian since graduating from MSU in 2001.  I joined the Caseville Small Animal Clinic in April 2006 after working 5 years in the Bay City area.  My husband Ryan, daughters Faith and Olivia, dog Bentley, cats Wolfie and Gulliver, and I love living in “The Thumb.”  We all appreciate its beauty, quietness and kind people.  The Caseville Small Animal Clinic is a wonderful place to practice veterinary medicine with a caring and compassionate staff, up-to-date technology, and a genuine love of animals.  Thanks for entrusting us with your furry family members!!!

  • Barb
    Office Manager

    Hi I’m Barb!  I work behind the scenes in the office making sure our staff and clients are taken care of.  Before moving to the Caseville area I worked in the accounting field. I am fortunate to be part of this amazing team here at Caseville Small Animal Clinic. When I’m not in the clinic I enjoy spending time with my husband Harley and two crazy dogs, Esther and Judah (brother and sister Rat Terriers).  We love being part of the Caseville community! 

  • Janelle
    Licensed Veterinary Technician

    I graduated from a 2 year Veterinary Technician Program at Baker College of Port Huron in 2009. Following graduation I obtained a job at a veterinary clinic in Plymouth where I worked for 2 years as an LVT.  I wanted to move back closer to home and in November 2011 I joined the team at Caseville Small Animal Clinic.
    In May 2013 I married my husband Mitch and we have 2 cats, Casper and Charlie, 2 dogs, Cooper and Casey, 2 horses, Ella and Pearl.
    I have always loved animals and am very satisfied with my career choice. I love working with animals on a daily basis and could not be happier especially now that I am closer to home and working at a fantastic veterinary clinic!

    I graduated from Baker College of Flint in 2012 with my Licensed Veterinary Technician degree.  I was born and raised in Caseville but moved to the Bay City area in 2006 to be closer to school.

    Hi, I’m Tori. I started working at the Caseville Small Animal Clinic in August of 2018. I am fresh out of school, graduating from Baker College of Flint from the Veterinary Technician Program in May. During the summer I completed my internship at CSAC, and was able to make a great connection with the staff, clients, and the adorable, furry, pets that came in. I am from Elkton, and live with my parents, sister, and one crazy, white and orange cat named Nema. Like most, I too, knew that I always wanted to work with animals since I was a young girl. I am so excited to be a part of this amazing team, and continue to grow and make connections with you and your pets! 

  • Jamie
    Head Receptionist

    I joined the Staff at Caseville Small Animal Clinic in September 2009. I first started working in the kennel and slowly transitioned to assistant then to receptionist.  I am extremely passionate about my job and I'm always eager to learn more to better help the animals of our community. Just like any other loving pet parent I love talking about my pets. So when you are visiting CSAC you may hear me talk about my 3 dogs: Kasey (Border Collie), Ed (Jack Russell Terrier), Molly (Morkie) or one of my 6 cats: Jake, Duncan, Meeko, Al, Dean, & Donut.

  • Heather

    Hi, my name is Heather, and I have been with Caseville Small Animal Clinic since 2012. I have 3 dogs and 2 cats. I have always had pets, from goats to bearded dragons. When I was around 12 years old I joined 4-H dog showing. I took my dogs to MSU and managed to place them! I was 15 years old when I started working at a petting zoo, which I learned a lot from and enjoyed!

    I started grooming my dogs not far from starting 4-H, and have been doing it ever since. I enjoy my job and always strive to make the clients happy with how their pet looks. I always treat a pet like they are part of the family.

    I look forward to the many years to come at Caseville Small Animal Clinic. I enjoy the relationships with the clients, new and old, and look forward to starting one with you and your pet. See you soon.

    Hi, I'm Zoe! I joined the staff of the Caseville Small Animal Clinic in May 2017 and I work as a Veterinary Assistant and a Kennel Assistant. Ever since I was really little, I've always wanted to help and care for animals and now I have that opportunity here! I'm starting college in the fall of 2018 at Baker College of Flint to work on a Veterinary Technician degree. I have 2 cute cats named Luna and Pepper, and a handsome parakeet named Admiral. I'm excited and honored to be a part of this team and I'm looking forward to meeting your fur-babies!

  • Carly
    Licensed Veterinary Tecnician

    Hi, I'm Carly! I joined the Caseville Small Animal Clinic staff in July of 2018. Animals have always been a major part of my life, and I have always had a dream of pursuing a career with them. I've worked with your loving and adorable pets, while earning my Veterinary Technician License from Baker College in Flint.  I have taken a dog training course through Penn Foster Career Schools and some of you may know my family and me as the boxer people. We have three loving and adorable boxers named Bella, Callie, and Jake and one barn cat named Tink. I am very fortunate to be a part of this amazing team and can't wait to meet all of your fur-babies!

  • Touche
    Clinic Mascot

    In August 2015 we finally found the purrfect kitten to become O’Shay’s “little brother”.  You may hear them fighting in the hallways, but don’t all brothers fight?  Touche does great with people and cats, but is still in the process of getting used to dogs.  So don’t be alarmed if he hisses at your dog, he would never hurt them.  Just like O’Shay, he is here 365 days a year and is in the training stages of becoming watch cat number 2.

  • Cliché
    Clinic Mascot

    Cliché came to us in July 2018 as an injured kitten. We didn't plan on keeping him but him and Touché became instant brothers and we couldn't bare to separate them. It doesn't take long for this little cat to make a huge impression on everyone he meets. If you stop by the clinic you may see him lounging on the front desk. Be carefully if you have a purse or carrier. He has been know to climb into them.
