Our Staff

Monica Wolf, CVT


I am originally from Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. I currently reside in Sullivan with my husband and our many animals. I have been a member of the staff here since April of 2015 and graduated from the MATC Veterinary Technician Program in May of 2015. I share my home with two Labrador Retriever brothers named Deke and Duke, two cats named Dilly and Dally, two chinchillas named Nelly and Dewey, an Appaloosa horse named Chester, and a flock of ducks and chickens. When I am not working, I am riding my horse, bee keeping, tending to all of my plants, hanging out with friends, traveling, and spending as much time as I possibly can outdoors! I have a huge heart for all sorts of animals and my passion for them is what helped me choose this profession. I am so proud to be a part of the team here and I am excited to help provide the best possible care for your animals.

Ashley Matuszewski, CVT


I am originally from Appleton, Wisconsin, but I currently reside in Watertown. I have been a part of the staff at the Tyranena Veterinary Clinic since January of 2018. I graduated from MATC's Veterinary Technician program in May of 2018. I have a Golden Retriever named Chandler (Bing), and 2 orange tabby cats named Cheddar and Culver . I enjoy many aspects of the veterinary profession, but I am most interested in dog and puppy behavior. I find it satisfying to learn how each animal acts and responds to different situations. I also love the opportunity to work with so many wonderful clients and their pets. 

Kari Drain, CVT 


I am from Brodhead, Wisconsin and graduated from MATC's Veterinary Technician Program in May of 2015. I recently moved back from Texas and am excited to be working at the Tyranena Veterinary Clinic. I have five cats at home; Miss Fluffykins, Runt, Bootsy, Eleanor, and Max. I also enjoy keeping an aquarium. I look forward to working with you and your pets.

Carley Clarke, CVT


I am originally from Lake Mills, WI but currently call Fort Atkinson, WI home.  I share my home with my husband, my son, Zeus (12) a Blue Heeler/Border Collie mix, and Commander Chainsaw (4) a Persian Cat.  When I am not working, I enjoy spending my time with my family hiking, going on adventures, or riding my horse and competing with her on an equestrian drill team. After graduating from MATC's Veterinary Technician program in 2013, I started working as an emergency and critical care Veterinary Technician at WVRC in Waukesha.  The past 4 years I have spent working at UW Veterinary Care as an emergency and critical care technician.  I am excited to start my next career chapter back in Lake Mills, at Tyranena Veterinary Clinic.   It feels good to be back in my hometown and seeing familiar faces.  I can't wait to meet all of your pets and get to know them along with getting to know you!

I am from Watertown, WI and I am currently enrolled in my general education courses at MATC and will be starting the Veterinarian Technician program in the fall of 2024. I have loved animals since I was young and knew I wanted to work with them when I grew up. I am excited to work with all animals but most specifically cats because they have my heart. I have an orange tabby cat of my own named Fylix. I'm excited to meet everyone and all your pets of course!

I am from rural Waterloo where I live on a farm with my husband Kurt and our son Preston. We raise steers, pigs, ducks, geese and even have a few peacocks. I have almost 20 years' experience working in small animal clinics. I am so excited to be working in Lake Mills where I was born and raised.

Lexine Zimmerman, Veterinary Assistant 


I am from Lake Mills, Wisconsin and I'm currently attending UW Whitewater for an associates degree. In the fall of 2024, I will be transferring to MATC in Madison to obtain my Certified Veterinary Technician training. I have always loved animals, I enjoy working with them at the clinic, volunteering at the Humane Society in Jefferson, and spending time with my two Boston terriers, Vera and Winston. Some other interests I have outside of school and work are photography, painting, and hanging out with friends. I am super excited to meet everyone and your pets!
