Dr. Julie

Perhaps a bit of a perfectionist, Dr. Julie is particularly passionate about pets and paddling.

Even with extensive experience, she is earnestly eager about education. She endeavors to enlighten clients and excel at earning even more excellent erudition.

She strives for superior surgical skills and systematically searches for a specific diagnosis so she can restore your special Shorthair, Siamese, Scottie or Springer Spaniel to his standard health status.

Laboriously learning laparoscopy, she can spay your Labradoodle laparoscopically leaving less pain for your little loved one.

Keeping cool, Dr. Julie craves kayaking in her spare time. Loving languid lakes, she seakayaks for leisure and really relishes racing her red kayak. She sometimes surfs the Superior or Michigan seas, and even ekes out some exercise at her endeavor.

Veterinary Technicians


Sheri and her husband Todd live on a hobby farm in the Town of Ripon. They have three grown daughters; Megan, Stephanie and Rachel. The farm has been home to many animals; a miniature horse, goats, chickens, ducks, cats, dogs, guinea pigs, love birds, and rabbits. Sheri was the 4H leader for 12 years while the girls raised and showed Satin rabbits locally and nationally. She has always cared for animals from a young age. Sheri fell in love with the Pembroke Corgi dog breed. She has raised several over the years, even getting into the show ring and obedience training. She earned her Veterinary Technician degree from MATC in Madison.

Sheri enjoys the wildlife around the farm. Daily visitors include dear, turkeys, sandhill cranes, geese, and a variety of birds. She enjoys crafting in her spare time. Projects include knitting, crocheting, quilting/sewing and soap making. She attends fall craft fairs where she can share her creations. Spending time with family is also important to her. The family enjoys attending sporting events, traveling, watching movies, puzzles, and board games.

She says that the perfect pet would be as smart as a rat, but large and strong like a horse. Michelle is a country girl and her dream vacation destination is her own home where she is truly able to relax.

Michelle has been working as a Veterinary Assistant for Maple Knoll for over 7 years and she is the clinic’s fitness guru. She is dedicated to health both in her work and her personal life. She always has great suggestions for killer workouts, healthy meal plans, and inspirational help for the staff and clients at Maple Knoll. Although 99% of the time Michelle is health conscious, she admits that she could never live without ice cream!


I was born and raised in Beaver Dam, WI. I have always had a passion for all animals big and small since I was a young child, but my main passions were (and still are), goats, horses, and dogs. I spent my high school years raising and showing ducks and showing meat goats through the Beaver Dam High School’s FFA chapter. After graduating, I moved to Minnesota, where I completed my Dog Obedience Training program. I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to work with and help train PTSD service dogs for veterans and assist with and teach in group training classes. While in Minnesota I completed the requirements to get my diploma in Equine Science. In 2017 I moved back to Wisconsin and now live back in my hometown of Beaver Dam. I live with my dog Rayzr, two cats; Bolt and Shira, and my two Ball Pythons; Kaa and Tito.

In my free time, I love to work with my dog doing obedience training, and agility work. Trail riding, reining work, and hunter jumping are some of my favorite activities on horseback. I enjoy going hiking, kayaking, and camping in the summer months. Although I love being active in the outdoors, I love binge-watching shows on Netflix and Hulu with the dogs and cats.

Growing up in Verona, WI, Kate was always an animal lover, having had many varieties of pets throughout her life including, dogs, cats, rabbits, turtles, a snake, cockatiels, and guinea pigs.
She has always wanted to be able to work with animals and fulfilled that dream three years ago while working at a local shelter. When the opportunity came to work at a veterinary office arose
she jumped at it. Being able to be part of a team that works to help animals get better and maintain their health is wonderful.
