Dr. Gerald Skees
Dr. Gerald Skees recalls chatting with his father about the future after he had finished up his time in the United States Army. Dr. Skees’s father told him that he himself had always dreamed of becoming a veterinarian, and he asked his son if he had ever considered the profession. That conversation set in motion a journey that continues to this day—Dr. Skees has been helping pets and their owners as a veterinarian for more than 43 years!
Growing up in a house full of animals, Jessica always knew that she one day wanted to help pets professionally. Saving her childhood Yellow Labrador, Sadie—and nursing her back to full health after malnutrition and a serious flea infestation—only further convinced Jessica that the veterinary world was the perfect fit! She’s proud to now serve as Family Pet Hospital’s Practice Manager.
Watching her childhood Chocolate Labrador suffer from the painful twinges of arthritis made a permanent impression on Christine. For her, being a part of the solution for other pets’ healthcare is a dream come true! She loves getting to know the area’s pets and animal owners as a member of the Family Pet Hospital front-desk team.
Alie’s own pets at home show her firsthand the companionship, loyalty, and love that our animal friends provide. She gets to help nurture those bonds for other families by working in the veterinary field! Alie is thrilled to launch her journey in animal care right here at Family Pet Hospital.
Destiny has always been fascinated by medicine, and was even on her way to becoming a Registered Nurse at one time. When she took a step back and thought about it, though, she knew that something didn’t feel quite right. That’s when she realized that she wanted to put her medical skills and her knack for helping others to use in the veterinary world! Destiny hasn’t looked back since, and she’s proud to now serve as a Veterinary Technician.
