Linda Evenson, B.S., Biology, CVT
While attending the University of Oshkosh, I participated in an externship at a local Oshkosh veterinary clinic and my interest in the field of veterinary medicine was sparked. After graduating from the University of Oshkosh with a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology, I obtained my Certificate of Veterinary Technology. Being close to family and friends drew me back to the Fort Atkinson area where I was born and raised. I have worked as a certified veterinary technician for the past eleven years and have had many wonderful experiences. I love that I have the chance to provide care for so many great pets and their owners, many of whom are friends and family.
After working in two other small animal practices, I am excited to be starting at the Tyranena Veterinary Clinic. The eleven years of experience I have has provided me with a vast knowledge of veterinary medicine and the compassion that is necessary to make me the best partner in helping you care for your beloved pets. My great love for animals and a never ending passion for medicine will make me an integral part of Dr. Gensler's team. The joy I get out of having a close relationship with all of you is the highlight of my job. I look forward to seeing both familiar and new faces at the clinic.
Monica Mansavage, CVT
I am from Fort Atkinson Wisconsin. I grew up with a passion for a variety of animals and a dream of working with them. I share my home with a black lab named Cash, two cats named Opie and Izzie, two chinchillas named Bubbles and Nelly, two rabbits named Sweetie and Boone, two pigmy goats named Tweety and Flower, and a horse named Chester. I have a huge heart for all sorts of animals and my passion for them is what helped me choose this profession. When I am not working, I enjoy barrel racing, roping with my horse, and anything involving the outdoors. I am very excited to join the Tyranena Veterinary Clinic team and help to provide the best possible care for your animals. I look forward to meeting all of you and your pets!
Laira Dittmann, Veterinary Assistant
I currently live in Watertown, and I am finishing school in Milwaukee. I had two dogs Brandy, a Brittany spaniel and Lexa, a Weimaraner. I have also owned two painted turtles named Speed and Ned. When I'm not at school or working at the clinic, I am trying new foods, reading, hiking, traveling, or watching movies. I've always loved animals and I enjoy caring for them. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of your pets and using my skills to maintain a happy and healthy life for them.
Courtney Hammer, Veterinary Assistant
Retriever/Border Collie mix and one "spunky" cat named Ziva. I've grown up with a passion for working with animals, and I have known for longer than I can remember that I wanted a career where I would be helping them some day. While not working or at school, I love to spend time with my friends and family (including my furry family). I'm so excited to be joining the Tyranena Veterinary Clinic staff, and I look forward to meeting all of you and your fur-babies!
